Calendar Reminders

A little new to Flow and beating my head against the wall regarding filtering Get Items using OData against a Calendar Start Date/time field. Users are requesting a reminder 3 days, 1 day and 2 hours before event on a SharePoint calendar if the event also has a status of "Not-covered". I have setup a recurring daily trigger to check the list. What's the best way to perform the date tests? Thanks!

Hi @Slloyd ,

 

You could use multiple Flows to correspond to these scenarios.

3 days, 1 day before the event, the two Flows are similar, the only difference is to change the parameters in the addDays() function to 3 or 1.

For "2 hours before event", I don't have a suitable solution for you currently. If it is accurate to the hour, it seems that it is difficult to achieve through the current function.

Re: Calendar Reminders

Thank you very much for the quick response! I will give this a try. One quick question... is there any way to do the filtering via Odata in Get Items setup so as not to pull all the items?

Re: Calendar Reminders

Thanks! Your solution works. However, if I can futher filter in using the Get Items filter query that would be awesome. Here's the expression I'm trying to combine in my filter query which is not working.  

 

formatDateTime(item()['EventDate'],'yyyy-MM-dd') eq addDays(utcNow(),1,'yyyy-MM-dd') and Coverage_Status eq 'Not-Covered'

Hi @Slloyd ,

 

Please check the following blogs, which mentions that there is currently no support for formatting fields in Filter Query, and the Choice column is not supported in Filter Query.
