Generating an email based on a calculated column



I have added a calculated column into SharePoint online which automatically calculates a date 50 days prior to a start date. I am trying to set up a flow whereby an email is automatically generated and sent to the project owner on the exact date calculated by the column.


I have researched online and found a way using Reoccurance as a trigger but it doesn't seem to work. I would really appreciate any and all help into fixing this.

Re: Generating an email based on a calculated column

Hi @Anonymous,


How do you want to send the email automatically? Do you want to send out the email daily or when an item is created/modified?

According to your description, I have created a SharePoint list with a Calculated column Prior, which calculates a date 50 days prior to the start date.

I have used the trigger When an item is created or modified, then the action Send an email. in the email body, just select the dynamic content Prior. Screenshot likes below:


Please take if for a reference and feel free reply if you need more help.
