HI @usarif 

 

The start time could be completely blank in my opinion. The actual trigger is the at these hours and at these minutes and you will notice the grey box (Preview) update to reflect that it will run on friday at 2:50pm once you have supplied an hour and minute.  The start time is only if you want the trigger to start from a date in the future i.e. build a new flow and then start the trigger from next month.

 

For example, I built a flow a few minutes ago at 21:05 to run every minute and set the start date to be 2021-03-19T21:08:00Z.  The flow did not run at 21:06 or 21:07 but once the clock it 21:08 it started.  You only need a start time if you plan to run it from a date in the future.

Hi @usarif 

 

I think start time is when it will start working from. I Think. So you could build it to start from 1st April for instance.

 

But what is missing is the at these hours and at these minutes. Your schedule is every Friday at no time.
