Flow Triggered by Date Condition

Hi Everyone,


I am trying to build a flow that looks up a a customer date field in a SharePoint called Renewal Date. If the Renewal date matches the current date the flow should then send an email to the email address associated with that row. I have been trying to use utcnow to lookup the current date however I am struggling to use this function and have not been able to get it to work thus far. Is this something that is possible?


Kind regards,

Re: Flow Triggered by Date Condition

Hi chrism90,


Please try to add a Condition in your flow to check if the “Renewal Date” is equal to Current date.

I have created a flow to test this issue, hope it could be a reference for you.

In the Condition, I use formatDateTime function to format utcnow so that it has the same format with the date in my list.

Besides, you could use a Compose action to get the correct format of the Date column in your list if you don’t know.


This flow works fine on my side. You could adjust it according to your needs.


For more details about Workflow definition language, please check the doc at here:


Best regards,

Hi Yamao,


I can see how you can compare a date in a list to today, but is there a way to say if expiration is 2 weeks away?  I need to figure out how to do a DATEADD()


In other words, if the item expires 2/28/2018, I should be geting an email starting tommorrow.
