SharePoint remind me

SharePoint lists and libraries allowed you to define custom metadata columns to track dates. With Power Automate's integration with SharePoint, you can easily create reminder flows, based on DateTime columns in SharePoint. With reminder flows, you receive a personal email alert a predetermined number of days in advance of a date on any document or item in SharePoint.

Prerequisites

  • Access to Microsoft SharePoint Online.
  • A SharePoint list, or library with a DateTime column.
  • Access to Power Automate.

Create a reminder flow

  1. Create a SharePoint list with at least one DateTime column in the current view.

  2. Select Automate > Set a reminder > Date deactivated (this is the column with the DateTime for the reminder).

    Select reminder flow

  3. Optionally, you might need to sign into the the services that this Power Automate template uses.

  4. Select Continue.

  5. Provide a Flow name and the number of days prior to the DateTime column entry when you want to receive the reminder alert on the Set a reminder card.

    Set reminder flow details

  6. On the Set a reminder card, select Create .

  7. You'll receive the following message, indicating that the flow was created:

Confirm reminders received

You'll receive a reminder via email, based on the Remind me this many day(s) in advance entry you made on the Set a reminder flow you created earlier.

The reminder flow is like any other flow, so you can access and edit it through Power Automate.
