FLOW (Get Items) How to use to filter a SharePoint List and send an email for each item that matches

Hi

 

I want to set up a recurring flow that sends an email if an item is Open and was created over 30 days ago in a sharepoint list.  The fields in SharePoint are

  • Created_Date
  • Status
  • EMail_To

 

Can someone post an example of how to use the GetItems and the 'For Each' part of the flow to send an email

 

I cant seem to find any instructions or videos on this....  seems like a very basic thing a lot of people will want to do.

 

Can someone post an example and links to any instructional videos?

 

Many thx in advance!

Why not just create a flow on the creation of the items. Then add an approval step that expires after 30 days. After this approval step check the status. If it is open then send ot the email. This approval step coould potentially be sent out to an approver but you could also assign this to any odd random service user as were just waiting for time to pass and not really want an approval.

Won't work

 

The Flow needs to keep sending emails daily until the item is closed...  not just one time.

 

Is Flow incapabale of doing such a simple thing?  This seems like a very basic and useful use case....
