Hi @ Argas,


Do you want to delete the items in the sharepoint list periodically?

What is the frequency that you would like to delete the items in the sharepoint list?


You could create a flow to delete the items in the sharepoint list with a recurrence trigger to achieve your needs.

Please refer to screenshot below to create the flow:


The flow would run every week to delete the items in the sharepoint list,and the flow would run successfully as below:



Please let me know if your problem could be solved.

I received a solution to another post with a type mistake (eliminate raw in a list in SharePoint) when I discover the mistake I have updated the post so this post is a duplicate of the old one already closed
