All my Flow trigger recurrence intervals are set to -0.01666666 instead of 5 minutes

When I use the Yammer trigger for 'When there is a new message in a group' it gives an error, even on a brand new Flow, saying the recurrence interval is wrong. Sure enough when you look at the code-behind it's set to -0.0166666666 - but obvious we can't change or fix this, so what gives?

Update - it's not the Yammer, it's ANY flow trigger Smiley Sad

Yep Outlook Task and Outlook triggers also affected. Been wrestling with this for like 2 hours trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong and it looks like NOTHING - it is the triggers that are all broken 😞

Hi @davidstone ,


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned.

My flow with trigger "When there is a new message in a group" works well as below:



Maybe the issue is fixed now, please take a try with your flow and let me know if your problem could be solved.


Best regards,

This is the stock standard out of the box "Create a Microsoft To-Do task for important emails and send a notification" flow. I've simply created it from template, hit edit and then hit Save. I have made NO modifications to the flow. The template validation failed: 'The 'recurrence' property of template trigger 'When_a_new_email_arrives' at line '1' and column '1092' is not defined or not valid.'.


The problem is not with executing triggers that already exist. The problem is with editing existing triggers and creating new ones.

Daveb21 is correct - this issue is happening on Flow triggers that haven't been modified or configured yet.


In my case I have checked with two other users on the same tenant and they are not affected. I've also checked my own user on another tenant and that is not affected. Unfortunately the one I need to use is affected!


Perhaps you have some insight as to how the recurrence figure is arrived at? It's evidently a per user thing?


I have checked the morning and the issue is the same.

Nooooooo - ok this is now happening on my other tenant too. Time to raise a ticket.
