Delay until project completion date

Hi, I am trying to create a flow using CDS (current environment) that performs an action to delay until the dynamic value "Project Completion Date" is met. I am having trouble with the expression (if that's what I am meant to be using). Any clues?

 

thanks

Julie

Hello @jbull

Couple of questions.
How long will you be expecting your flow to delay for? The maximum time a flow will wait is 30 days before timing out.

What is the purpose of this delay? You might be better off creating a second flow that does a query daily to check if completion date.

thanks @Jcook, we had the same thought! Just working out how to get one flow to start the other - getting closer.......:)

No problem @jbull

My suggestion would be to just have the second flow run daily.

If you really want to trigger the flow with another flow here is a great blog post:

thanks@Jcook we were unable to use a child flow so not able to use a scheduled flow to trigger. Starting my flow with a different trigger and reworking the flow seems to have worked.
