Flow to update to current date does not change uploaded files

 
 

Hi, 

 

I am extremely new to SharePoint so please bear with me if this is incredibly simple! 

 

I am trying to set up a column with today's date, that will update the date every day. At the moment it updates folders and sub-folders with the correct date, but not uploaded files (which is really what I need showing the date, not so much the folders). 

 

Here is my flow so far:

Am I missing something really obvious? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey @KittyMac 

 

You will first have to check the datatype of the Date Today column in SP. Note that the utcNow() function will return the entire date as yyyy-MM-ddThh:mm:ssz. You just need the date so you can use the expression: formatdatetime(utcnow(),'yyyy-MM-dd') to get the date only and try to update that column.

 

Can you try this and confirm if it works. (you can check the date format on the SP column and make the same changes in the expression too)

 

Hope this Helps!
