Compare entered date with existing dates in PowerApps/Flow



I have a date entry field in powerapps where users can select multiple dates. After user enters the dates, I need to check date difference between the entered date(s) and existing dates and trigger email notification if the difference between 2 dates is less than 90 days.


The column is mapped to SharePoint list.


Any inputs please


Thank You

Hi @biuser99,


Currently, there is no function like DateDif() function that could be used to calculate the Days between two dates. AS a workaround, you can use the addDays() function instead.

If  addDays(variables('Date1'), 90) is greater than variables('Date2'), it means between Date 1 and Date 2 is less than 90 Days, or it is greater than 90 days.

Hi Lin,

Thanks for the reply. The problem is I have to compare dates within the same field and not two different fields. I'm not sure if the below approach works for my scenario. Any thoughts?

Thank You
