Flow to run at specified date

Hello,

 

I have a scenario and I was wondering if this can be achieved with Flow 🙂

 

We have a Microsoft Form where the users are selecting a specific date using datetime column. My end goal is for each of the responses to evaluate the date selected and run the flow on the selected date. As I understand, I will need to somehow parse the Date to Delay action ? Is this possible?

 

Many thanks for help!

Re: Flow to run at specified date

Hi @Gwynbleid ,

 

Please refer to the following method to configure Flow.

 

  • Configure Compose to store the date selected by the user.
  • Use formatDateTime() function to format the date into the format required by Delay until.

Expression:

formatDateTime(outputs('Date'),'yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ssZ')

Hope it helps.

Re: Flow to run at specified date

You can Run flows on a schedule or you can Manually trigger a flow - but you can't dynamically trigger a flow. 

If this is functionality you would like to see added to Flow please consider submitting it to the Flow Ideas page, where it can be voted on by other users, and tracked and commented on by the Flow team.
