Creating a flow that sends a scheduled email when a document in a particular OneDrive folder has been modified

I am attempting to create a flow that sends an email at 5:00 pm on the day that a file in OneDrive has been modified.

For example: If I updated a document today at 10:00 AM, an email will be sent to me at 5:00 pm notifying me that the document has been modified. 

I've been trying to do Recurrence --> When a OneDrive file is modified(Properties Only) --> send email. 

I am having no luck. 

Can anybody help briefly map this out for me in terms of a flow? If you need any more info let me know. 

Thank you!

Can you please explain why an email has to go at 5 pm? Is it some sort of report that shows all the files modified in a day?


If yes, you can continue with following trigger and create an entry in a SharePoint list where you can write a filename.

Then have another scheduled flow that runs every day at 5 pm. Extracts data from the SharePoint list for todays entries and send it via email

Instead of spamming emails every time there is a modification, I'd prefer it if there was just one email sent at a certain time of the day. 

Ok got it. Then can you try the solution that I recommended?
