Get started with the recurrence trigger

By using the recurrence trigger, you can create powerful workflows in the cloud.

For example, you can:

  • Schedule a workflow to run a SQL stored procedure every day.
  • Email a summary of all tweets within the last week about a certain hashtag.

To get started using the recurrence trigger in a logic app, see Create a logic app.

Use a recurrence trigger

A trigger is an event that can be used to start the workflow that is defined in a logic app. Learn more about triggers.

Here’s an example sequence of how to set up a recurrence trigger in a logic app:

  1. Add the Recurrence trigger as the first step in a logic app.
  2. Fill in the parameters for the recurrence interval.

The logic app now starts a run after each interval of time.
