There is an interesting functionality inside the Power BI Service in which a user can create an alert about a required numeric rule within a visualization. This will give them an early notification about a business process or allow them to keep up to date about specific situations at the exact moment that they occur. In my opinion, the alerts are only comfortable if you have the mobile app, due to instant notification, like a text message, instead of getting an email. Emails are not always checked right away.

The issue here is that all these configurations are only for the user that configures it. However, what can we do when we want to notify other users about the alert created? Power BI won't let you configure another email or user to get this notification. For this reason, we are going to use Power Automate (formerly known as Flow)

Being an analyst with modern visualization technology is fun and enriching. Who doesn’t enjoy a stunning visual with useful and easily consumable insights? The reality is: even the most thoughtful authors have blind spots. Why? Because authors have significant amount of background knowledge that is not carried through via visualizations. In the absence of that, users relay on visual cues and the knowledge they learn from elsewhere to interpret what they see. This often cause communication gaps in data visualization, particularly in situations where report is authored by one person and used by many users from different teams, different backgrounds, and have different background knowledge and chart reading abilities.
