Scheduling a flow to run biweekly on Friday

Hi,

 

I am just trying to explore if there is a way to run a flow on biweekly basis on Friday.

I am using the recurrence trigger and do see an option of Custom value in Frequency, not sure if that is an option for what I am looking to achieve.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @dmistry 

 

There is no out of the box option for this

 

However, you can use flow trigger conditions now (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-gP-E6CCE4) where you can trigger you flow based on a condition

You can code logic which says run every 1st and 3rd friday of month or so

 

To run bi weekly, you would have to add/track the last run date

 

One option would be to run the flow weekly on every Friday

Add that info to a data source (example sharepoint list)

 

next time flow runs (next friday) check condition - compare date with sharepoint list item (if date difference is a week)  then do nothing else execute your action

If you are looking for a little more flexibility on when to run the flow.

 

My post here has a few more options such as certain business day, last friday, second week, etc...
