How to stop a flow

I am creating a flow that sends an email reminder every 7 days but I only need to do this for a certain period of time. Is there a way to stop the flow at a certain date? 

 

Thanks,

Matt

Can you provide some additional details please.

How long do you want to send the reminders?

Can you calaulate when the reminders should go out and for how long?

Will the reminders go out more than 30 days in the future?

So the reminders will start on a certain date, then be repeated every couple of days (I am creating this for multiple people so they will each decide how often) and then stop after 21 days.

Thanks,

Here is an example that may work for you.

 

I am running my Flow when a new item is created.

I then delay for a specified time period before send out the first email.  This delay is optional.

After the email is sent, I delay for a specified period of time.

After that, you'll see a Do Until loop that says keep looping until the current date is more than 21 days past the date when the item was created.

Insode the loop I have a delay - you can specify how long you want the delay to be.

Finally, I send an email.

 

The result is that every X number of days (depending on the delay), a reminder email will go out.
