What I used it for.

My platform automatically schedules an appointment for users.  If the users do not check in by a certain time on the day of their appt. the system sends them an email letting them know they missed their appointment.

Here's the flow:
This is the entire flow.  Scroll down to get the steps.

Skipping weekend for SharePoint Calculated Columns- Due date type stuff

I need to allow the staff to enter a date and base on that date, administer tests based on that date.There will also be a flow that notifies another user that they are scheduled to take a test.

I created Calculated columns so it would automatically generate the dates as soon as the staff members enter a start date.
We do not test over the weekend so I needed to take out saturdays and sundays.

Test are two days apart during a normal work week. So I need every one who starts or completed a test on Thursday or Friday to complete their next test on the following Monday.

Power Automate Power Apps - Email link to item in a power apps.

I use this Flow to send an email to the supervisors any time a record was updated using our Power App.  I did not want to use "Link to Item" because I used power apps to layout the Item forms.  If I sent the Supervisors to the Sharepoint item, it looks a lot different and causes confusion with my not so tech savvy supervisors.

Below are instructions on how to create a link directly to the item in the Power Apps.


Changes in your power app for the redirect.

1. Change "OnStart" in your App Settings

Sort then search items Power Apps Gallery

Sort (Search(

    SearchBox.Text, "ColumnName") ,Created,Descending)

****Created is the column that stores the created date in my Sharepoint list
