The template validation failed

Hi, 

Using Flow for the first time. 

Started with the Template "Create planner tasks for flagged emails in Office 365"

 

Returned the error "

The template validation failed: 'The 'recurrence' property of template trigger 'When_an_email_is_flagged' at line '1' and column '1071' is not defined or not valid.'."

 

Please advise what this means/how I can fix it. 

 

Thanks!

Hi @meganfscenic ,

 

You could try to clear the browser's cache and then reconfigure the trigger connection when configuring Flow.

Please check similar thread and see if it helps:

HI @meganfscenic 

 

Can you please share a screenshot of the trigger of your flow? Maybe you are missing some values/ inputs or parameter there. 

 

Please see the screenshot below:

Re: The template validation failed

Hi @Anonymous , 

 

Thanks for your reply. 

 

Don't seem to be able to paste a screen shot here sorry!

 

I have discovered it happens whenever I try to use any of the following triggers, no matter follows it:

Outlook "When a New Email Arrives" 

or Outlook "When an Email is Flagged"

or Office 365 Outlook "When a New Email Arrives" 

etc

 

If I look at the code for either of these triggers, I see the following. (But haven't had the option to select anything to do with recurrence, even in advanced options).

 

"recurrence": {
"interval": -0.016666666666666666,
"frequency": "Minute"
 
Is there any way I can alter the code? 
 
Thanks again!

Hi @meganfscenic 

 

No. You cannot alter that code. It is an action set by default for the particular action on the connector. For the recurrence trigger you can schedule something by the date and time stamp. Can you share more details on the scenario that you are trying to build the flow on? That way we maybe able to assist you better. 

 

Hope this Helps!
