Delay approval flow

Hello everyone, I have an automated flow triggered by Sharepoint connector  "when a file is created or modified" followed by a switch which plays depending on the approver answer

I would like to add a connector or even re structure the flow to enable the sharepoint document to be filled out by customers from 8 am to 5 pm, and if the customers decide to fill it and send the approval request after that time lapse, this request falls into approver inbox the day after at 8 am, and then the flow runs from 8 to 5 again, everyday.

 

I would like to know your opinions, thanks

well you could add a delay and figure out how many hours you need to delay it, and get the metadata again and then continue.

 

or you could just make a "For selected item" trigger and let them pick when to send it to you.

 

or you could do a trigger condition on modified where they need to say select a checkbox on the item i.e. "Send for Review"

 

there are lots of different options available to you.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

If you want the approval would be sent to the approver on 8 am and the day after the file is created or modified, you could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

The expression in the flow as below:

formatDateTime(addDays(utcNow(),1),'yyyy-MM-ddT08:00Z')

Hello thanks for the heads up, I have built this flow, but I am missing the correct value, so the approval will be sent until next day at 8 am.value.PNG

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Please delete the condition in your flow.

 

Best regards,

Alice
