Making task with from Button on mobile device with reminder

I am somewhat new to Flow and have gotten some of the basics down.  I am trying to use my Iphone to intiate a task that I do often from a button in Flow app.  I am having trouble learning how to set a due date and reminder for some future date and time by default.  Example, I am working in field and I get a call about a quotation from customer and I would like to go to IOS app and create task from preset button and have a reminder automatically be placed on the task for a future reminder.  I hope this makes enough sense for someone to help me.

 

Thanks,

 

Daniel

Re: Making task with from Button on mobile device with reminder

Hi @daniellouque,

 

Which task do you want to create within your flow?

Do you want to set a due date within a Flow button manually?

 

I assume that you want the reminder to be token 2 days before the due date of the task, I have made a test on my side with creating an Outlook task within my flow, please take a try with the following workaround:

  • Add a “Manually trigger a flow” trigger, add two Text fields -- TaskName and Due Date.
  • Add a “Create a task” action.
  • Add a “Delay until” action, Timestamp field set to following formula:
formatDateTime(addDays(triggerBody()['text_1'],2),'yyyy-MM-ddT00:00:00Z')
  • Add a “Send an email” action to reminder you of the due date of the task.

When you run the flow, the dialog shows up as below and you need to fill those fields within it:10.jpg

 

The flow works successfully as below:9.JPG
