Need some help with recurrence

Hi,

I am trying to set up a workflow that can send out a reminder on the first Monday of each month.

Could anyone tell me what I need to do ?

Thanks

Hi @Celestie ,

 

you can try the following condition and expression:

You can use a daily trigger, next you have to check if it is the first day of the week (Monday) and if the day of month is less then or equals 7.

dayOfWeek(variables('Today'))

dayOfMonth(variables('Today'))

utcNow()

Nice solution from @GeorgiosG 🙂

 

Another approach could be to check which day it is in an expression in a trigger condition.

 

You could use a 1x week on Monday frequency and in the settings of the recurrence action check if the day is less than or equal to 7.

 

This approach has also been described by @tom_rihahttps://tomriha.com/schedule-power-automate-flow-to-run-only-first-tuesday-of-the-month/
