How to calculate the end of the month in flow

I have been tasked with utilizing the reminder feature of flow to send an at the end of every month to a SharePoint group. I am trying to find a way to compare todays date with an expression that calculates the end of the month. If today equals the end of day calculation, it would send an email letting the group know that it was the end of the month with a link to a SharePoint list they need to review. This would occur at the end of every month.

Is there a way to do this currently in flow?

Hi @m_wllms,

 

Microsoft Flow uses Workflow Definition Language to work with the paramenter, but currently there is no function available to calculate the end of the month in this language:

Check the Language reference:

Workflow Definition Language

Please consider to submit this as an idea in Microsoft Flow idea forum:

By the way, we could run schedule in Microsoft Flow:

Run flows on a Schedule

See if this is helpful.

you can add 1 day to your current date. If the day component reset to 1, then today is the last day of the month
