Power Automate flow in Power BI

Hello community!

I have a query: I am building a flow in Power BI with the new Power Automate plugin. What I would need is to send a table to an email, I have no problems with the construction of the flow. My problem is that I would need that flow to run every day, and not just when the user clicks the "Run flow" button within Power BI. Is there a way to do this?

Thank you!

In order to run a Microsoft Power Automate Flow every day rather than only when the user clicks the "Run flow" button, you can use the Recurrence trigger from Power Automate.

In the above, notice the blue-colored Recurrence trigger.

 

Note that from inside the Flow itself, if you want to do something periodically, it is possible the data must be queried first. When clicking Run Flow, sometimes there is option to pass data in that was selected by the user. In a recurring Flow, that data must be queried. There is also a difference there, and you may need to have some additional functionality in the Flow for the recurring one.

In case users were never were passing in any data in the first place, just try changing the trigger to Recurrence and see what happens.

 

Before changing the trigger, I recommend you do this in a copy of the Flow just in case you need to have the original. I recommend "Save As" first on the original Flow, then edit the copy first to test.

 

Check if it helps.
