Reminder Email Delay

Hello,

 

I have a flow that is supposed to send a reminder when the meeting is 8 days away. The flow works but I want to make sure that when the email sends that it doesn't send the email again until the next month. Do I need to add a delay to the flow?

 

Expressions I'm using:
Start Time: formatDateTime(addDays(utcNow(),8),'yyyy-MM-dd')
End Time: formatDateTime(addDays(utcNow(),16),'yyyy-MM-dd')
 
Thanks in advance.

Hi @AB68,

 

Do you want an event that lasts many days to be reminded only once?

You can add a restriction, the start time of events is 0: 00-24: 00 on the 8th day.

Please try the following workaround.

Here is the expression:

startOfDay(adddays(utcNow(),8))

Here is the expression:

startOfDay(addDays(utcNow(),9))

Hi @AB68,

 

Do you want to send a reminder to tell people there will be a meeting in 8 days.

Could you please show me more about your flow?

1.If possible, show me a screenshot of your flow.

2.What’s your trigger.

3.Where do you create the events, save it as Items in SP or add meeting in Outlook?

If you save it as Items in SP and use ‘when an item is created or modified’ as the trigger, It seems that you don’t have to worry about it repeating reminders.

Hi @v-chenzhi 

 

Answers to questions: 

 

  • I would like to send the reminder that the meeting is in 8 days.
  • The events are in Outlook.
  • Once the flow sees that there is  a meeting and sends the email, I don't want it to send another email reminder. The only reason I put the End Time as 16 was to keep in mind if the meeting was rescheduled.  

Please see screenshots below:
