Flow to send email on due date.

  Hello,

 

I want to create a flow to send an email on due date but it seems im doing something wrong :).

 

So i have set the recurrence and time zone.

If i try to get item like in the picture below i can put the link and List name but how do i get the information from the CD deadline?

Hello @Florinel ,

the 'Get items' action will return all the items from the list that fit the condition and provide them as output of the action, together with all their columns. Just add the next action, e.g. 'Send an email' and you'll see all the columns among the dynamic content.

Hello @Florinel ,

you need the 'Get items' action that'll look for all items in the SP list, 'Get item' is used only if you know exactly which item you want to get.

Take a look on this article on building simple reminder flow.

Hello @tom_riha  and thank you for answering this.

I used Get item because i know exactly from where i want to take the information but i do not know how.

I want to get the info from this sharepoint list and the column named CD deadline, when the date is due to send a reminder to the assigned colleagues.
