Trying to create a flow to send an email based on start date in Tasks by Planner

Hi,

 

I could use some help with a flow. I'm trying to create one that will allow users to tag a task to send a reminder email ahead of the due date in Tasks by Planner. But, I want users to be able to choose whether or not they get a reminder. The best workaround I've found is to use the pink label to signal that the task should have a reminder and cue the email off of a start date. I thought I had it working but I'm getting an error message about the start date step that I'm not sure how to fix. See below for screenshots of my flow and the error message. If there is a more efficient way to do what I'm thinking, I'd appreciate the suggestions! The strange thing is that I'm getting the email I expected from a test task I set up. Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi @hcomenetz 

Could you share the expression you're using on the "Start Date" action, for the basetime field value? Flow is failing due to the value is null, so we should check the expression. Could it be because the task has no start date?

Hope it helps!
