Filter Array Date

I am trying to build a flow which will filter items from a Sharepoint List based on a date column.  This column is calculated and so I cannont use the OData filter function.  Instead, I am using the "Filter Array" step.


My filter in basic mode reads:


From [value], ['ABS_x0020_Start_x002d_Finish'] is greater than or equal [getPastTime(7, 'Day')]


or in advanced:


@greaterOrEquals(item()?['ABS_x0020_Start_x002d_Finish'], getPastTime(7, 'Day', 'yyyy-mm-dd'))


This does not appear to be filtering anything. In my output I'm getting the results from the whole table through, including: 


ABS Start: 2020-09-03T14:00:00Z
GetPastTime: 2020-12-23T00:45:17.6824696Z


ABS Start: 2020-09-03T14:00:00Z
GetPastTime: 2020-12-23T00:45:17.8699760Z


Is there something I'm missing here?  I've tried to use formatdatetime on the column but the dynamic content of ABS Start is not available when I try to insert it.

Thanks Reza.  I checked out your video and while the new GUI filter experience looks great, it won't show my calculated column.  Like in my previous email, I can't use Odata.

Hi @Arankin1 were you able to resolve this? I see it's an old thread but I'm having the same issue where filter array does nothing and I'm getting the results from the whole table.
