I have a flow that is supposed to run once per day, on days that I make changes to a SharePoint document.
Instead, it is running everytime I make a change in the Excel file.
The flow sends an email to certain people when update to the file are made. The problem is, the flow is sending a lot of emails per day, not once per day.
Pic of my flow is attached....
Am I missing something? Thank you!!
Hi @ mwolf222,
Could you please share the full screenshots of the configuration of your flow?
Whether the problem you are experiencing is that your flow will send multiple email every day?
If you have configure the “Recurrence” to run every day as your screenshots, no matter how many times you modified the sharePoint document , the flow would send email at most one time every day.
OK. Attaching entire Flow. I tested this morning. It sent the email twice while I was editing the document. I would like it to send email only once (at 4:00 pm) on the days the document is modified.
I am still struggling. Still getting repeating emails sent out.
Now, I want to create a similar flow for a new, important customer. Want to notify them once per day if changes are made to a document. It will be embarrasing if they get multiple emails in one day. Thank you!
That screenshot is showing 2 triggers. That is not going to work.
Why don't you have one manual trigger and then loop the flow until forever and use the Schedule - Delay action to repeat whatever you want to do every day.
If the actions need to depend on the mdoifcation dat of a document then simply add a condition that checks that data and a date in the past.
More details on the Delay and the Date in the past actions you can find here:
Thank you, Pieter:
I did some more research and this is what I came up with. In testing I found that it does not send multiple emails while I'm editing(good), but still seems to send emails more often than once per hour. If you have any suggestions, that would be wonderful!
