Create a flow with planner to remind 30 days before a task deadline

Hi Guys,

 

I am new to Flow/Automation.

 

I have a plan with 3 buckets, I am looking to focus on one specific bucket name, get all tasks in that bucket then find out if the task has not been completed and also if the task due date is within 30 days.

 

I then wish to get the profile of the assignee and send an email with the name of the task and a generic message around the included due date from that task item.

 

Similar to this post 

 

Except I need only the items in a specific bucket

My thinking is that I get the tasks from the result of the filter array to ensure I am only looking at tasks in the specific bucket, then apply the rules I mentioned at the start of the post.  Could someone please help me building an example of what I actually need to include to achieve my goal.

 

Thanks,

Hi there.  To clarify, if we run this process daily and it finds a task with a due date within 30 days and sends the email...what should happen tomorrow? and the next day?  Is your intent that the person would get an email every day until the task is completed as long as we're within the 30 days?

 

Also, we may want to consider tasks that are overdue.

 

Here's a template that gets pretty close to what you describe.  Maybe with some tweaks, it will be exactly what you want

 

Keep us posted.

Thank you for your reply and please excuse my delay in response.

 

I shall review this and let you know how it goes.  You did in fact point out a very valid observation, I do not want it to send a ping evry day for 30 days.  Only on the 30 marker so I shall adjust the logic accordingly.

 

Thank you
