Sending emails on certain days of the month.

I am wanting to send reminder emails on certain days of the month.  First Monday, second Monday and so on.

There is what I have so far.  I have an excel file with the dates that I need to send on.

Is there a way to put the dates in without having to put in 12 different controls?  I know I can brute force it and put a separate line for each date, but I was hoping to avoid that.

Thanks for your help.

Hello @Chipper ,

using the same principle, second Tuesday will be between the 8th and 14th day of the month (greater than 7, less than 15)

@and(less(int(utcNow('dd')),15),greater(int(utcNow('dd')),7)

Hello @Chipper ,

if you use the scheduled trigger and set the interval to Weekly run, it'll allow you to select which day of the week it should run.

But if it should run only the first Monday in each month, you'll have to combine it with a trigger condition.

I checked out the link you included about the trigger.  That is a lot better than what I was planning on doing.  But it did elaborate on if I needed to do the send Tuesday of the month.  I posted a comment asking about it.

 

run only if the date part from today's date is less than 8 (= 1 to 7):

@less(int(utcNow('dd')),8)

 

Notes: utcNow('dd') will take only the day part from today's date

int(...) will convert the day from today's date into an integer

less(...) will compare if the day part from today's date is less than 8
