I wonder if it is possible to get a notification from SharePoint Online if a file from my document library is NOT modified/updated at a specific date/time using Power Automate.

Can anyone advise please.

Thank you.

  • I think you could probably do something that runs on a schedule that compares the modified date to some other date. If the modified date is less than the comparison date, send an email. If you could add a bit more detail to your question, it'd certainly help point you in the right direction.

    You can create a scheduled Power automate flow & compare the modified date with current date (or as per your requirements date) using expressions & condition action. Then based on condition, you can send an email to your users. May 25, 2021 at 5:06

Just like Ganesh said, a daily recurrence flow with a condition check on the modified date seems to be a good option for you. You can set the modified date to compare with the created date or a specified date set by you. Here are examples for your reference:
