Get an email if excel is updated for a particular column - depending of a particular date

Hi all

I have an Excel online file where users have to update each month latest on the 4th of a month.

Since I dn't like checking every month the days before if the user has done I like to automate with a flow. Is it possible?

The flow should do this:


2 days before due date check if a particular row is populated. If not send a mail to me and this user. I populated send me a notification


Same 1 day before and on due date.


Additional data: The table is predefined. 5 users have a row for each month. Each row has several columns. These column shall not be empty on the due date.


User  ¦  Month ¦ Email of the user ¦ several columns

1         1-1-20

1         1-2-20

1         1-3-20      ....

1        1-12-20

2         1-1-20

2         1-2-20

2         1-3-20



Is there way to do this

I think this can be achived if you use a Sharepoint List instead, but...

I would say trigger from an Excel without manual intervention is not currently supported, but more than happy to learn if somebody else explains a way to fulfill your requirements

Hope this helps
