Notify is Sharepoint list entry has not been changed in X days

We're using a sharepoint list to track tasks for team members. They update task as they go along but we're running into an issue where some tasks get ignored.


I'm looking to build a flow that will check the sharepoit list on a daily schedule and notify via email if an item has not been updated in 7 days.


Since datedif() does not seem to work in flow I'm looking for creative options on how to achive this.


I tried several things on the sharepoint side but all of them somehow touch the modified date attribute, and i would prefer to not have add another column that a user needs to fill in as that would introduce additional challanges.

Re: Notify is Sharepoint list entry has not been changed in X days

Hi @Anonymous,


Do you want to notify someone if an item has not been modified in 7 days?


I have made a simple test on my side. For testing, the flow is triggered by Flow button, if you want to check the list on a daily schedule, you could change the trigger to Recurrence.


After the Get items action adding a Condition to filter the items.


In the Condition, use the following function.

@less(items('Apply_to_each')?['Modified'], adddays(utcnow(),-7))

Then when the flow is triggered, items that have not been modified in 7 days will be sent via email.


Please have a try with it on your side.



More details about the function, please check this doc on Workflow definition language.




Best regards,

Mabel Mao
