Send email on specific, manually-inputted date

Hi all,


Might someone please know how to schedule a flow to send an email on a specific date I manually-input into a flow?


I need to send a quarterly process reminder email to a list of people in a SharePoint list, but the quarterly date isn't exactly the same day every 3 months for the recurrence action, so I want to manually input the dates for the next couple of years into the flow.


Any idea how to simply achieve this?


Thanks in advance,

Hi @cmurray,

You can achieve this easily by doing below steps -
1. Create one configuration list which will hold a date values on which you want to send an email and one flag which will set

    to Yes once you send an email on that particular date.

    For ex- List name EmailDateConfig with a column EmailDates and isEmailSent column of type Yes/No ( Set default to No ).
2. Use a Recurrence trigger in a flow and get item from EmailDateConfig list with filter isEmailSent = No and

    EmailDates =Todays date.

3. If Get Items output is not blank , then send an Email and then Update an item and set isEmailSent to Yes  else no action

    is required.
    Condition -





You can anytime change or add new date values into the list and you don't have to go into the flow to change the dates .

If this answered your question, please mark this question as answered and if you liked my response, please consider giving it a thumbs up .
Thank You !!!
