Using Alert in Power BI Service

Hello, 

I'm trying to manage alerts so that I can watch the inventory of the products of my company.

The purpose of this is to be notify if the stock of a product is under the minimum stock.

For example, if I have 200 coca-cola and the minimum stock is 300, I will receive an alert.

Now the problem here is that I have two columns which contains the actual stock and the minimum stock and I don't know how to make alert based on the difference of the two columns. Each product have his own minimum stock.

For example, you can see the table below : 

 

Product CodeActual StockMinimum Stock
3000022210001200
300237320001000

Hi @eric98 ,

 

According to your description, here is my solution.

Create a column.

 

Column =
IF ( 'Table'[Actual Stock] < 'Table'[Minimum Stock], 1, BLANK () )

 

Put the column into a card.

Set to trigger an alarm when the sum of column is greater than 0. And then you will get the notification.
