How to create a scheduled flow in power automate

| Hafsa Farooqui

We can use Power automate to design a flow that runs on a schedule. Assume you wish to send a daily email to all contacts informing them of some news from your organization. For this example, the scheduled flow in Power automate is used. Scheduled flow enables you to run an automatic flow on a daily or weekly basis on a particular day or time.

To create a scheduled flow, follow the steps below:

  • Go to and on the right pane, select ‘Create’. Then select ‘Scheduled Cloud Flow’.

  • Fill out the required fields like the flow name, and how frequently the flow will run i.e Starting date and time and repetition frequency and ‘Create’.

  • Add ‘List Rows’ action and choose ‘Contacts’ table.

Add another step to the loop, which will send emails and iterate through the list records. Use Apply Each loop using Control connector.

Now inside the loop add value as list and add another action Office 365 Outlook to send an email. define to address as contact email using dynamic value and email subject and body.
