Auto creating charts based on thresholds of a cell in a table

Wondering if its possible... I have a table.  Its source is refreshed daily. Some of cells track things like dollar amounts or percentages. I want to find out if 1) can I set a threshold for that cell such that when that threshold is crossed, the cell changes color from green to red. For example, in one row I have a cell that show a percentage of sales. I would like to set a percentage of 60%. If the table is updated and the new sales figures are updated and that particular cell sale's figure drops down to 40%. Is it possible to set an action or a trigger or anything that would then automatically change the cell color from green to red and then 2) is it possible that when that sales amount drops to that 40% that a chart would be created on another page, like a Summary Page, that shows that drop? I am imagining a Summary page that keeps track of the table data but with various chart types. Perhaps this one is a line chart and it shows up on the Summary Page because that cell in the table page (which is obviously a separate page/screen) dropped below the pre-defined threshold of 60%....does all this make sense? Is this at all possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @Anonymous 

A few additional points:

(1) Here is a similar question about conditional format, please check my answer in this post, link

(2) Although the chart cannot be created automatically, you can set data alerts as a workaround, see bellow

The built-in conditional formatting capabilities in Power BI should solve #1: Conditional table formatting in Power BI Desktop - Power BI | Microsoft Docs

For #2 there isn't any "auto-create-a-chart" feature but you might be able to leverage report-page tooltips or drillthrough filters to accomplish what you want.
