Create a schedule flow with no recurrence

Hi,

 

May I know it is possible to create a schedule flow with no recurrence?

That means want to ad hoc schedule to trigger the flow. Thanks!

Whats the frecuency you need to execute your flow? Dayly, Monthly? And, what time(s) you need it to be executed?

I beleive you can do almost everything by programmig the requested frecuency, then the bunch of hours and minutes on your trigger. So if you need your flow to be executed everyday at 10:15 11:15 and 12:15 you can add as hour 10, 11, 12 and as minute 15

In case you need your logic to be executed at 10:15, 11:45 you can add as hour 10, 11, and as minute 15, 45... and you need additional steps:

first, you can doublecheck execution time by means of 'Current time' action block

next, you can add a Condition action block to verify if execution time matches with your expectations. Operator 'contains' should do the trick. So you can doublecheck in 'Current hours' contains 10:15 or 11:45. If true, executed your logic, if false execute a terminate action block

Hope this helps

No recurrence? You mean you need to execute it always manually?

If so, try with 'Button trigger', even though its name says 'mobile' you can execute it from Power automate web console also
