Compare date - Today and value

Hello!

 

Could you help me out? I am looking for a solution for comparing 2 dates.

Condition

22.03.2017 less or equals [today]

 

@lessOrEquals(item()?['CHECKFROM'], '??????????????')

 

Thank you

Hi Chs,

 

I configured a flow to send an email when the Date column in the list is less than or equal to Today. My flow configuration looks like below:

Then when an item is created, if the data is less than or equal to Today, an email would be sent.

 

In the SharePoint list, the Date column is Date only format. What’s your data source? If you are also using SharePoint list, please make sure to configure the Date/Time column as Date only format.

 

Please try to configure the Condition with the formula as following:
@lessOrEquals(triggerBody()?['Date'], formatDateTime(utcnow(),'yyyy-MM-dd'))

 

The workflow definition contains the actual logic that executes as a part of your logic app. This includes one or more triggers that initiate the logic app, and one or more actions for the logic app to take. Hope this documentation about Workflow Definition Language could be a reference for you:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/logic/definition-language

 

Please try it on your side and let me know if it works for you.

 

Best regards,
Mabel Mao

Hi

 

 

I have  a  smilar question. I want to calc the next annual date read from a worksheet . However, I am getting error  with this  syntax

 

@equals(item()?adddays(['Last_x0020_Service_x0020_Date'],365) formatDateTime(utcnow(), 'dd-MM-yyyy' ))

Has anybody had a similar issue?

 

Daniel

@westerdaled

 

have you tried

 

@equals(addays(item()?['Last_x0020_Service_x0020_Date'],365,'d')

I don't think it will work with leap years 😞

@v-yamao-msftyour expression

 

@lessOrEquals(triggerBody()?['Date'], formatDateTime(utcnow(),'yyyy-MM-dd'))

So I have this flow as below that runs sucessfully:

This is linked to the below SP list:

 

flow pl.2png.pngThe issue I have is the dates format.  So in the list it is set to a UK format, in the flow this gets converted into a UTC format.  When I use the date field in the email that the flow will send, this also gets inserted in the UTC format.  Is there anyway of modifying this to long format of 5 December 2018 so when it is used in the email it looks better and in the that long format. 

 

Hope you can help.

 

Regards,

 

Andrew
