I see there is an opportunity to specify a custom value for a recurrence trigger's frequency value. Can someone tell me what these custom values are? For example, month, year? or is it some advanced coding option?
I see many posts here asking for recurrence intervals such as weekdays only, last day of the month, weekends only, 1st and 3rd Weds of the month, etc. and am wondering if this custom value for frequency addresses these requirements in some easier way...
I'm personally looking for the 15th and the last day of the month, and reading the post for the last day of the month here was quite something! Just want to check if the custom value uses 'month' and if so, that'd be sooo much more simple (and elegant)!
I assume that this documentation about Workflow actions and triggers for logic app“ could be a reference for you, please check it at here:
From the part about Recurrence trigger, we know that the possible values for the frequency are second, minute, hour, week, month, year.
So I think that we could enter custom value month or year when using the trigger “Frequency”. However, I haven’t seen related threads about this issue on Microsoft Flow.
Hope this documentation could be a reference for you. I will keep an eye on it.
Yes, that documentation for recurrence is helpful, but IMHO, month and year should have just been added to the list of other possible values in the dropdown list. I was thinking the custom value might allow some scripting to make the more unique recurrence frequency requirements easier...maybe just wishful thinking but if you see anything, that'd be great if you can let us know!
Cheers and thanks,
Please consider to create a request at Flow Ideas Forum for adding month, year or other possible values in the dropdown list:
For the custom value, so far, I haven’t seen similar threads, I will always keep an eye on this feature.
