Adding days to an existing date field using flow

Hi,

I am trying to build a flow for a task list that recreate the tasks based on a specific frequency. I have tasks that are weekly, monthly, and so on. Since the tasks don't change, my flow just takes the existing tasks and recreate them while setting the status field to outstanding and adding, for example, 7 days to the due date for a weekly task. In the images you can see that I am telling my flow to filter for only items that are created in the past 7 days to avoid  recreating the same task more than once, since the same task gets recreated every week but just with a different due date. However, I can't seem to be able to find an addDays formula that works for this specific case and tried all the solutions given to similar cases online. I think this might be due to using the Get Items action which limits the dynamic fields available to insert in the addDays formula, but I don't know any work around. I would appreciate any help!

Thanks in advance,

Hi @Power_Aissam ,

 

Does your problem still exists?

I afraid that there are some items' DueDateW column value is null, please re-check the column's value in the list.

Also you could add a Check inside your Condition as below:

Hi @Power_Aissam 

 

You can try using this expression:

addDays(items('Apply_to_each')?['DueDatew'],7)

Note: You can access the fields for the current item of the list by using the items(loopname)?['column name']. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @yashag2255 

Thanks for your reply. I keep getting this error message even if I changed the column type of DueDateW to date & time. It is quite frustrating. I would apprecite your insights.

Hi @Power_Aissam 

 

Can you confirm that there is data in the DueDatew field in SP? The error states that this field is null (has no value/inputs stored)

Hi @yashag2255 ,

 

Yes, there is no null value and that's why I am confused with this error message.
