Email using a button in power BI

Hello, 

 

Is it possible to send an email, with filter selections by just pressing a button in Power BI?

 

I don't want to use a hyperlink that takes me to Outlook, it should be sent automatically. I don't want to use Power Automations or Power Apps either.

Hi  @MSchultz93 ,

 

As far as I know, apart from Power Automate or Power Apps, Power BI does not currently support using a button to send an email that includes the state of the selected filter in any other way. Power Automate or Power Apps provide the necessary integration to automatically send an email containing the desired content.

If you don’t need to create a button to send emails, you can consider the subscription feature for dashboards and reports in Power BI. This will send an email to the recipient, and although it does not involve clicking a button in Power BI, it allows for regular email updates

You can use the REST API to export a report containing the current filter selection, and then use a script to send an email
