Final look at the Flow

  1. Create a Flow at http://www.flow.microsoft.com and give it a name.
  2. Choose „recurrence“ as a trigger. In our Case we will trigger the flow every day at 7:00
Set recurrence for your Flow

3. Initialize a variable as array for each weekday

Jeweilige Tage findest du später in dem Titel deiner OneNote Seite

Create a „Compose“ Action and use the Function:

utcNow()
Get UTC TIme

4. Create another „Compose“ Action with following expression to get a „number“ for the week. This will help „calculate“ the Weekday for the OneNote title.

dayOfWeek(outputs('Get_UTC_Date_and_Time_now'))

5. Another LAST „Compose“ for getting the weekday as an output:

variables('Days of the Week')[sub(outputs('Get_Day_of_the_Week_(Number)'), 1)]

5. new action: „Create Page in OneNote Section“ using the OneNote Connector.

If you want to use my Input and the Title with todays date and the weekday – be aware to insert the output of get day of the week:

<html>

<head>

<title>@{formatDateTime(utcNow(), ‚dd-MM-yyyy‘)

}, @{outputs(‚Get_Day_of_the_week__(Name)‘)}</title>
