Reminder Email - Exclude first & third Saturday of each month


I have a workflow that sends email notification reminders to one approval on daily basis.

I would like to exclude sending reminder notifications on the first Saturday of the month and the 3rd Saturday of the month.

Example: The third startuday of the current month is 16/4/2022 which means if the user did not approve before 16/4/2022 and today's date is 16/4/2022 (Third Saturday) the flow should not send a reminder to the approval. After 16/4/2022 the workflow will keep reminding the approver user.

Is it possible to check and exclude the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month?

Could you please provide an example to achieve the above requirements?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Best regards,

Hi @Julien2 


Most likely you need a custom function for this. If not you may need to check from 1 to 28 and check each day is which day and store both dates in a table. 


Create a new flow which triggers daily to check whether it matched todays date or not.
