Writeback or add notes to reports?

We have some reports we are looking at building to handle sales.  A good example might be sales by store per department.


In the reprot we would like to be able to add notes at the end user level.


Write back / transaction services/ etc lots of products offer this feature.


The idea being that a store manager could tag the report with notes say per period and go "well this week sales were lower in sunscreen because it was cold and rained all week" (or something like that).


Is there any way to accomplish this with PowerBI?

which products?

@OneWithQuestion Not directly to reports. You can annotate and share those notes on dashboard tiles in the mobile app currently, but it still hasn't made its way to the Service. It is planned.
