Create a recurring flow that starts from a file being created or modified

I am currently creating a workflow that starts once a file is created or modified, but was curious about whether there is a way for a workflow to continue until the item is deleted and will also send recurring approval requests every 3 months?

Re: Create a recurring flow that starts from a file being created or modified

You can't really mix a creation trigger with a recurrence trigger, so no there really is no way to do this.  Also, any flow once triggered will only work for the next 30 days.  After that there would need to be a new trigger event.

 

Having said that you can definitely set up a flow that triggers once a day, once a week, or once a month that will look at a bunch of files and send out reminders based on criteria you specify.

Re: Create a recurring flow that starts from a file being created or modified

Hi @aherrera,

 

Unfortunately, just like @Pstork1 said, the mix duration is 1 month, there is no way to extend the Flow run time to 3 months.

According to your requirement, maybe there is a workaround that creates a recurrence trigger run every 3 months to send an approval request. Recurrence every 3 months -> check the File whether still exist(compare with the file list or other things) -> Send an Approval.

If you have a detail description of your requirements, it will be better for us to assist you, thank you.
