Flow that will send a reminder email daily once the due date has passed

Hello, everyone.
I'm trying to create a flow from Document Library that will send a reminder email  daily once the due date has passed , as example:
Due Date is  20 November  2019 , email reminders should be start from  21 November  2019 every day   until the file will be moved to other library. 
I looked at all similar publications here but did not find what is acceptable for my flow. 
 
Can someone advise me how to build such flow, Thanks in advance!

Hi,

 

Believe you have a due date which is stored as part of document library. If it is then you can use List Folder to retrieve all files. Next step add an IF condition to check due date vs today date (utcNow()). If it satisfies the condition then send email.

 

Thanks

Hi @RobElliott  thanks for your  I have question the    " NextReview" is the name of Columns?  

The name of my columns is  "Due Date" type of information in this column is Date and  Time 

in Filter Query I should indicate the next :  Due Date Ie       correct? 

 

@Anonymous, yes it is the name of the column in my document library. You would use your column name.

@abm I already tried it …. Start typing in Dynamic content the field name

Maybe the problem is there (Believe you have a due date which is stored as part of document library)  Maybe i store it incorrectly

Why are you using List folder? In my example I used Get files (properties only).
