Sending emails with follow-up / reminder

Hello!

 

Is there a setting in sending Outlook emails that is similar to setting flags for recipients? 

 

2019-09-27_15-41-40.png

If not, is it possible to create a task for specific people? I have a sharepoint list with a column of people, and I would like to send them prompts/follow-ups after a certain date from sending my initial email. 

 

Thank you!

Hi @anmdf 

 

Currently it is not possible to assign tasks fo specific people using Outlook tasks connector of Microsoft Flow.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum.

I normally do this for Approvals by putting a parallel loop in my Flow that sends periodic reminder emails or notifications until the Approval is completed.

Thanks @abm and @Pstork1, I'll send periodic emails since we cannot use the flagging. Thank you for the response!

Hi! 

Do you have an example of how to set up a parallel loop with periodic reminder emails until the action is completed?  I am new to Flows and am not sure how to do this.

Thanks!

Here's a basic version for an Approval.
