Using a flow to stop an existing flow (reset the process).

I am creating a flow to begin upon creation of a new list item. It will then pause for 24 hours and if no new items have been created send an email alert. It this loops (pauses for 24 hours again.......).

What I am trying to do is if a new item is created stop the exsisting flow and begin the flow based off the newly created itm.

 

The overall goal is to monitor the list (not item of a list) for lack of activity during a specific time frame. Specificaly I have a list the staff upload monthly reports to. I need an alert when they have failed to upload their report. This list is currently manually monitored and wanting to automate it.

Hi @dssr72 ,

From your discription, it seems you want to monitor the list to check whether there is a new item been created in 24 hours.

I suggest you use the 'Recurrence' trigger here.

I have made a flow for your scenario, please check it for a reference.

The flow will trigger at 20:00 everyday automatically.

The expression in Filter array is:

addHours(utcNow(),-24,'yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ssZ')
The expression in Condition is:
empty(body('Filter_array')) is equal to ture
