I have a list with a column named "Status". With a workflow, I would like to delete an item if it keeps the same status after 7 days. If the status changes, then the item would not be deleted.

Thank you in advance

By using MS Flow/Power Automate, we can achieve this by adding a [Delay] action in the flow. Assuming there will be a final Status, when the item is permanent, and will not be deleted. In this example, the final status=Active.

Please refer to the screenshots below and let me know if you have any questions.
