Send email when date arrives

I am a small business owner with little flow experience. Mostly GUI guys so please go easy on me. 🙂

After multiple tests, I can't seem to get this flow to send me an email.

Scenario: I want an email to be sent when an employees performance review date is due in 1 day. The flow runs successfully but no email is sent? 

The strange thing is I have a similar flow running for birthdays and it works, but I can't get the performance review one to work? 

 

I also have tried using this too that I found in another thread. 

@equals(formatDateTime(items('Apply_to_each')?['Next_x0020_Performance_x0020_Rev'], 'MM-dd'), formatDateTime(utcNow(), 'MM-dd'))

How many items do you have in your list - I can't tell from the screen shot if there are more than the four that you have identified.

 

I ask because, by default, Get Items returns only 100 items.  If this is your issue, here is a link to a blog post that details how to change the default.

 

If this addresses your issue, please mark your post as Solved.

Can you post a screen shot of one of the Flow runs?  That way we can see what happened when the Flow ran which will help find your issue.

Hi @Willerz7071,

 

Please modify your flow trigger to "Recurrence" if you want to an email to be sent when an employees performance review date is due in 1 day.

 

The screenshot of the flow should as below:

The expression in the Condition as below:

@not(empty(items('Apply_to_each')?['Next_x0020_Performance_x0020_Rev']))

 

The expression in the Condition 2 as below:

@equals(formatDateTime(items('Apply_to_each')?['Next_x0020_Performance_x0020_Rev'], 'yyyy-MM-dd'), formatDateTime(addDays(utcNow(), 1), 'yyyy-MM-dd'))

The flow would run successfully as below:

Best regards,

 So there seems to be a bug? It is only emailing me for two employees, but I have four set for the same date?

I don't get emails for Christine or Melody?

That was it, I have over 230 past employees on the list. I changed the amount as you suggested and now it works. I wonder does the Get not go alphabetical or does it use its creation date or id number to run through the list? Any ideas. Just curious?
