Schedule Flow After Hours


We have an application called pagerduty that we use to setup our After-hours alerts. Basically, when we receive an email after-hours it has to be forwarded to a pagerduty email (pagerduty takes care of the alerts after it recieves the email).

As of now, I want to trigger a scheduled flow with 1-minute recurrence. Let's call it After-hours flow.
So this After-hours flow checks for any incoming new emails every 1 minute that we receive and then forward them to pagerduty email. But this flow should only be functioning only after-hours. Now, my problem is to make this 1-minute recurrence flow stop working during business hours (monday-friday 8:30AM to 5:30PM). I'm thinking if there is another flow that I can setup to stop and start this "After-hours" flow based on business hours schedule.

Hi @harish ,

I suggest you add a condition after the 'when a new email arrivers'.

 I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

The Compose action is to get the Received Time of email:


The expressions in Condition are:


dayOfWeek(triggerBody()?['DateTimeReceived'])  is equal to 0, Indicates that the time is Sunday.
dayOfWeek(triggerBody()?['DateTimeReceived']) is equal to 6, Indicates that the time is Saturday.
3 and 4
greaterOrEquals(outputs('Compose'),'08:30:00')  is equal to false
lessOrEquals(outputs('Compose'),'17:30:00') is equal to false
