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.

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?

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.
