Re: calculate variables


There are several action blocks related to variable definition and manipulation.

I would suggest you to implement a couple of test Flows, once you play a little bit with the editor, it is very easy to understand

Hope this helps

Re: calculate variables

Hi @IC,


Could you please show a straightforward description about your needs?

I am not familiar with the workflow of SharePoint Designer, according to the screenshot that you provided, I think that “Do Until” action in Microsoft Flow would match the loop action within your screenshot:2.JPG


In addition, there are some actions related to variable definition and manipulation in Microsoft Flow:3.JPG


More details about creating a workflow using SharePoint Designer, please check the following document:

Re: calculate variables

Hi Kris, yes I was able to do simple increment setting variable to (1), I did this inside the card Do until thinking it will continue the increment plus+1, Plus+1 which will update the column the value total.  What Im trying to achived is that each day this variable will count and place the value into the column to reflect how many.  on the Card  Do until "Count" 60 and "timeout" PT1H means what because I create an item into the SP-List and i can see the count is 1 thinking its working but now, after 1 day, its still 1 can guide/show how this is done,  Thanks so much.

Re: calculate variables

Hi Kris, how to continue incrementing the variables I am successful with one run, only after that based on the do until and delay settings in the flow its not running anymore.  I need the variables to keep on counting/increment until my condition met.  based on
variable conditon below I was able to increment upto 2 only then stop.
