Create A Recurrence Logic App

Recurrence Logic App

 
Recurrence, as the word says, means something  “will occur again”. Logic apps help us automate tasks based on different business scenarios. Recurrence schedules the logic app at certain times or intervals as per our need or based on our business need.
 
Target
 
We will be creating a simple scheduler logic app which will send a greeting mail on a daily basis.

Fill in the details, to whom you want to send it, subject, body and add new parameters containing multiple options; i.e. bcc, attachments, and etc.
 
 
Click on “Save” and “run” if you want it to run manually; or the timing which you have mentioned in “schedule” runs at that time, automatically. It will run on a daily basis and send the mail. Shown below is the sample mail.
