How do I automatically post a Happy Birthday message in Teams?

I have all of my employees' birthdays in my Outlook 365 calendar. They are all-day events. I am struggling to create a flow that automatically outputs the following on their birthday into a post in Teams:

 

Today is [Name]'s birthday! Happy birthday!

[Happy Birthday gif]

 

I have been working on this for a week. Thanks in advance.

Hi @grantfuhr ,

 

You could use Filter array to filter the eligible events and post the message to Teams channel:

You could also click Edit in advanced mode to enter multiple conditions to filter events.

Thank you @v-bacao-msft. That works great! Is there a way to post the message at 8:00 AM every day?

 

Will this work for multiple birthdays on the same day?

 

Thanks again! You are awesome!

 

Hi @grantfuhr ,

 

You could set Recurrence as follows:

Filter array will filter all eligible events in the current date.

@v-bacao-msft and @grantfuhr  - Would you mind sharing the flow as a zip here so people could experiment with it?

Love this idea, but like @harshkohli , I struggle to create it from start to finish. Thanks for sharing guys!
