Re: Sending a mail after a pre decided amount of time

Hi!

If you are in the middle of a flow and you need the flow to wait before executing the next step, there used to be two action blocks called Delay and Delay Until.

However, if you need to execute a flow at a predefined time, there is a trigger called Recurrence with very flexible options. 

 

Both of them are described here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/run-scheduled-tasks

 

An excellent example of Recurrence trigger can be found here:

Hope this helps!
