How can we improve Power BI?

Data Alerts in Power BI Report Server


If a specific threshold is exceeded I want to receive a email / message that this is happening on my Dashboard. It would be better if there is a default threshold for this and that a user can set up a specific threshold also.

    Then this is such a show stopper for our users to continue on with Power BI Report Server... sorry to say but this is such a disappointment.

    Actions like this are why Gartner doesn't even bother considering PBIRS... and for those like us who want an on-prem solution, it's striking to hear that the value of our 15 year historic investment into SSRS is showing a quickly diminishing amount of value.

    I have demo'd for dozens of people within the company looking to pick a BI tool and they all ask about this. Telling them its not available yet is a deal breaker for many.

    This Data Alerts feature like in SharePoint Integrated SSRS mode is really needed feature and widely used.

    This would be very welcome when data should remain on premise! We publish to PBI Report server and not to the PBI online service but the need for alerts is eminent in our company (with 1400 FTE)

    We are implementing Power BI at an airport and could CERTAINLY use data alerts for a variety of situations - wait time too long, flight is delayed by a certain time, plane stranded on tarmac.

    Please implement this for Power BI Report Server

    Alerts can be set on visuals created from streaming datasets that have been pinned from a report to a dashboard, but cannot be set on streaming tiles twisted directly on the dashboard using Add tile > Custom streaming data.Ref:

    My clients want to receive alerts by email when the stock levels of a certain stock item fall below a threshold. They don't want to have to do this by monitoring the report constantly!

    I want them to be able to configure this themselves within their on premise solution - like is possible within the Power BI service! We don't want to have to use SQL server agent, etc to configure these!

    Please strongly consider incorporating this functionality for enterprise level on premise solutions.

    I think SharePoint SSRS data alert is little bit better than current Power BI Service data alerts. I am surprised this feature was never implemented on SSRS 2016 version.
