Trigger FLOW from PowerBI Dataset Refresh

  • Example:
    • I have a PowerBI dataset that contains a list of employees whose birthday is Today().
  • Want:
    • I'd like to trigger a flow when the dataset refreshes that sends a "Happy Birthday" email to the employees (individually).

Has anyone found a way to do this? It appears that I can only refresh a PowerBI dataset which I don't need to do.

Why not just have a Flow that runs on a schedule? Example:

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, your Flow run history, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you. Also, for the best results, you may want to review How to write a good forum post.
