Recurrence Flow doesn't run in background

I created a recerrence flow and set it to run once a day everyday at 1 am. If the cureent date is equal to the date value of my sharepoint library list date field, then it will move the file to another library.

It works perfectly fine whenever I test it, however it doesn't run in the background. I have set the flow on, but it just doesn't triggered somehow. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Re: Recurrence Flow doesn't run in background

Hi @BalticSunlight,


I assume that you have set the frequency of Recurrence as Per day and it will start to run at 1 am.

According to your description, it seems that you want to check if the date in the library is equal to Today. If yes, move the file to another library.

I have made the following flow. For testing, it will run per minute. And it works fine both in testing and in the background.


You said that the flow just doesn’t trigger somehow, do you mean it doesn’t trigger every day at 1 am?

Please try it again and feel free post back if you are still having the issue.


Best regards,
