"When an upcoming event is starting soon" trigger does not work for recurring events after the first

The "When an upcoming event is starting soon" trigger does not work for recurring events after the first occurance.

 

Multiple people have identified this problem:

Unfortunately a large percentage of my meetings are long standing recurring events that are not triggered by this event.

Hi @ MarkFischer,

 

 

The issue is confirmed on my side,  the "When an upcoming event is starting soon" trigger does not work for recurring events after the first occurance.

I would post this issue to my product team, if the issue is solved, I will reply here.

Alice Zhang

Has this issue been resolved or is there a workaround?

Hi.

Any news here?

Here is the workaround i am using until this gets resolved.  In office 365 calendar on the recurring event I have chosen "send email reminder".  I then configured a flow using "when a new email arrives" as the trigger.  Just creates uneeded extra steps for the flow, but it has been working for me if/until the real issue gets resolved.  Hope this helps you.
