step-by-step description to set up a flow in Power Automate that sends a message to yourself in Teams on weekdays (Monday to Friday):


Sign up with Power Automate: Go to https://flow.microsoft.com/ and sign up for a free account using your Microsoft account credentials.


 Create a new flow: Click on "My flows" in the left-hand menu, then click on "New flow" > "Automated cloud flow." Give your flow a name (e.g., "Weekday Message") and choose the "Recurrence" trigger. Set the interval and frequency as per your requirement (e.g., every 1 day).

   

For Example:

To run this flow Daily, at 08:30 AM

Add a condition for the day of the week: In your flow, add a new action called "Condition." In the condition, use the following expression in the first field: dayOfWeek(utcNow()). Set the comparison operator to "is greater than or equal to" and enter 1 in the second field (1 for Monday) Click on "Add row" and set the comparison operator to "is less than or equal to" and enter 5 (5 for Friday) in the second field. This condition checks if the current day is a weekday (Monday to Friday).

If yes - add an action to send a message in Teams: In the "If yes" branch, add a new action using the "Microsoft Teams" connector. Choose the "Microsoft Teams - Post message in a chat or channel" action.

Configure the Teams message action: In the "Post message in a chat or channel" action, fill in the following fields:
