Add Numbers of days to date field

We want to set a Flow to send out emails to have people requalify on certain dates. Every Qualification has different time frames.. Some are 6 months, others are 12, 24, etc..

I have been able to get a calculated field to show the number of days before renewal.

What I am having problems with is setting the "Renewal Date" field to be Today * the renewal days.

So, if Renewal days is 180, need to set "Renewal Date" to be 180 days out from today.

I tried setting the "Renewal Date" to something as simple as: adddays(utcnow(),RenewDays, 'yyyy-MM-dd') .. which, as expected failed..

Tried different combination of: @equals(formatDateTime(addDays(utcNow(), int(item()?['RenewDays'])), 'yyyy-MM-dd')) with the same failed results...
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Add Numbers of days to date field

Hi @shanemeisner ,

It seems you want to add Numbers of days to  today.

I have made a flow for your scenario, please check it for a reference.

Expression in Compose: 

addDays(utcNow(),int(triggerBody()?['RenewDays']),'yyyy-MM-dd')

Re: Add Numbers of days to date field

You're right to use the addDays date and time function, which should be formatted like so:

addDays('<timestamp>', <days>, '<format>'?)

So for your usage, it would be something like:

formatDateTime(addDays(utcNow(),180), 'yyyy-MM-dd')

You can't pass variables to date/time, you need to utilize the Compose action and use it's Output. So, you would have a compose action for each date variation needed. Example:

Please review the following:

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you.
