Automatic Email Sent to User after 6 Months of Creation Date


I have an application in which everyone creates Project information for a client Like this:

Every user's email is recorded who ever creates a Project Record and they enter a Project Creation Date.

I want to automatically email that User after 6 Months of Project Creation Date (which is like 184 Days after the Project Creation Date) of that user.

I am confused if the user have 2 records which record will be sent in the email... I am stuck in creating the flow.

Any Help


Left Side Formula in Condition 

formatDateTime(item()?['ProjectCreationDate'], 'dd/MM/yyyy')

Right Side Formula in Condtion

formatDateTime(addDays(item()['ProjectCreationDate'], 184 ,'dd/MM/yyyy'))

Is there any mistake in the expression or Flow ?

Ok. Then, instead of making a condition like this: 


DateDiff(Now(), Created)  equals 184

Set a condition like this:


DateDiff(Now(), Created) > 184

But if it is bigger than 184 it wil send every day. In day 185, 186, 187, 188, 189.....

Hey! Why dont you use a DiffDate?

DateDiff( Created, Now() )   equals    184



Something like that

Hi @Nogueira1306 

The Problem is I want to send an email back to user after  6 months of project creation date.
and the user have multiple records. So, I want to email that whos 6 months are about to end  and with that record details..

My Flow is somehow not working

Okay. Then your formula might be right. I thought that the problem was the  formula.

So. If you want to know that. It will only send the items in which the diff dates is 184

So, if a user has 1 item with 6 months and other with 5, it will only send the one with 6.

But I dont think yourformula is right. Because you are adding 184 fays to the day you created the record. That will never be the same...

Hi @Nogueira1306 

When I test the flow it runs but the expression is False. and hence it's not going into the Yes Block

If it is false, it wont go to yes block...

Try getting an item that you know that created + 184 is today

Actually, there is no such item

But I had inputted 1 there and Tested the flow manually. it's still showing the same.

How can I fix this?

Try with function DateDiff


Instead of utcNow(), you can try: Today() or Now()

DateDiff(Created; utcNow())             equals                  184

If you want to check the value of that DateDiff, out it in a var to check the value

Did you find the answer?

Hi @Nogueira1306 

Well I have created a Calculated Column of DateDifference

in Which I have Done (Today(), ProjectCreateDate) 

But, I am confused I want to email the user with the details of project whose Project Date is 6 months older or have past 184 days.

Seems like its still not working ;(
