How do I set a reminder for Outlook Event from a Flow


I am taking data from a Create New Contracts in Dynamics 365 and adding it to yhe Outlook Calendar.


The way I want it to work is:


- a user creates a new contract in Dynamics 365

- the Contract End Date creates an Event in Outlook calendar

- the user gets an email notification a week before the event


In the Caledar app, there is a way to create Email reminders from New Events, is there a way to use that in Flows?


I have a flow creating the event, but I want to know how to make a flow that will send an email notification a week before the event.


Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Re: How do I set a reminder for Outlook Event from a Flow

Hi patrick1992,


According to your scenario, to send an email notification a week before the event, I assume that this flow configuration could be a reference for you:

More details about the flow configuration:

In the Compose action, use the function formateDateTime and adddays to format the StartTime of the event to a week before the event(date only).

The function is configured as: 


 More details about the function, please check this documentation about Workflow definition language:


 In the Condition, if the output from the Compose action is equal to today’s date, send an email.

Note, I also use formateDateTime function to format the utcnow() to date only.


Then when a new event is created, if the condition meets, an email would be sent.


Please modify the flow according to your needs. Please feel free reply if you need more help.


Best regards,

Re: How do I set a reminder for Outlook Event from a Flow

But won't this only scheck once if the due date is in 7 days? That would mean I only get Email notifications if it is, while I'm trying to get Calander to send email reminders.


Also can you explain triggerBody()?['Start']


Thanks in advance.
