Recur Every MWF Help

Hello,

I'm having trouble scheduling a Flow to run every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Originally, I set the Flow trigger to recur every 48 hours and the following trigger conditions:
- @or(equals(dayOfWeek(utcNow()),1), or(equals(dayOfWeek(utcNow()),3), or(equals(dayOfWeek(utcNow()),5))))

Unfortunately, this appears to be running every other week!

Does anyone have experience with this type of recurrance? Should I just set the recurrance to 1day along with the trigger condition? 

 

I'm also wondering if using utcNow() is complicating things. I'm in UTC-8 so this could have an impact when the Flow runs.


Thanks!

@ericonline you don't need to do anything complicated to achieve this; just select the frequency as Week and the interval as 1 then select Monday, Wednesday and Friday from the On these days field.

Thanks @RobElliott . Guess it was counterintuitive for me to start with a 1 week interval for something to be done 3x a week 🙂 I appreciate your insights.
