How to set the times of flow running and limit it within 50 per day?

Hi, I'm making a flow that sync my RSS to my Twitter/Facebook.

Ususally the RSS updates 100+ every day. But I don't want every article sync to my tweet/thread, that will cause fans unfollow my account.

So I plan to limit the daily running of the flow with 50 times. But I don't know how to do that.

I guess probably I need to add 'if yes then, if no then'. If the amount meet 50 then the flow stops or proceed with empty execution.

 

Could you help me think about how to design the flow and make it possible?

Thanks.

I would create an Excel table or SP list to log each day's posts, with an ID field that you will increment with each post.

 

At the start of each day, empty this repository with a scheduled flow.

 

Your flow that posts the RSS to social media should get the ID of the previous (latest) row from this repository, increment it by 1 and then write a new row.

 

You can set a condition that stops posting if the ID gets above 50.

[You could also then add clever stuff like share every 3rd post]
