Personal productivity is essential to teamwork. SharePoint lists and libraries have long allowed you to define custom metadata columns to track dates. We now are releasing a new capability that lets you set reminders for any of these dates. You’ll be able to receive a personal email alert x days in advance of a date on any document or item in SharePoint.

To create the reminder flow, your list or library should have at least one date/time column in the current view. You’ll then be able to create a reminder by selecting the Flow > Set a reminder menu item.

Flow menu

You can enter the number of days in advance for the reminder, based on the selected date column.

Reminder panel

Based on your selection, you’ll get an email from Microsoft Flow for any items or documents x days in advance of the selected data column value.

Once the flow is created, it can be edited from the Microsoft Flow portal. You can modify days in advance, or add additional actions. Read more about this feature in the SharePoint documentation.
