Flow button with Recurrence

Hello,

 

I created a flow that enables our corporate users to add some group members to their mailboxes contact folder.

The flow is triggered by a button on mobile App.

 

My question is: Is it possible to add reccurence to a flow triggered with a button (it's needed as each user need to execute the flow in his own user context.

 

I hope I'm clear enough to get some answers... I didn't find the answer googling binging the topic...

Re: Flow button with Recurrence

Hi @Flownaut ,

 

Currently MS Flow can only use Recurrence as a trigger, it cannot be used as an action.

However, you could consider using Delay until action, with the time manually entered in Button, which seems to achieve a similar effect to Recurrence.

The role of Recurrence is to let Flow run at the specified time. If the user can manually enter the specified time and then fill the time in Delay until action, then even if Flow is triggered, the rest of the action will have to wait until the specified time.

However, Recurrence's repetitive triggering capabilities may be difficult to achieve.

Hope it helps.
