send a reminder email thirty days after submitting a sharepoint list entry

hi. we have a simple sharepoint list. there is a start date field and we want an email to remind the person who put the entry in to UPDATE the entry thirty days from the start date.

 

bonus: we have another field that has status, open or closed. we also want it to check that status and only notify the person if the following conditions are true:

 

it is NOT in closed status and it is thirty days after the start date.

It's not recommended to have the flow wait for the 30 days and then sent a note, if for no other reason than flows time out after 30 days. 

 

Instead, create a flow that runs on a schedule, perhaps nightly, and have it fetch all items from the sharepoint list that meet your criteria: not closed and > 30 days. Loop through these items and send an email for each one.

@Mike2500  hi thanks for the reply.

 

is it possible to create a flow that adds a calendar entry in their outlook 30 days from the moment they create the sharepoint entry?
