Starting a Sharepoint Timer Webpart

I'm using Flow to create Sharepoint subsites for specific tasks within the organisation. I would like to embed a 7 day timer webpart on these subsites that will count down to when the task should be complete.


There is no way of pre-setting the timer with the site template so I was wondering if anyone is aware of a way of setting/triggering the countdown timer webpart with a Flow?


Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Hey @finnecs 

Have you considered using a UI Flow to add the web part and set the values post site creation?

Beyond that you'll probably need to invoke a Flow from your site design which itself invokes an Azure function to execute custom code (PnP) to perform the required actions.



I have not been able to use UI flows, as although I have it installed, when I try and create one I get a popup saying "Something went wrong - please ensure that UI flows is installed and running". I have reinstalled it a couple of times too but still no dice. 

Hey, check out -


Also make sure your account has a license which permits premium Flow features.
