Get Files Modified column filter

Hi Community Team, 

 

I am having issues writing a filter query for the sharepoint get files (properties only) module. I have tried the following: 

 

Modified gt '2020-05-21T16:00:00Z'

 

I am using the default Modified column as reference for the expression. 

 

Essentially I would like to have files modified yesterday after 4pm. Everytime I run it i get the following details: 

The expression "Modified gt '2020-05-21T16:00:00Z" is not valid. Creating query failed.

What am I missing? 

 

Kind Regards, 

Nathaniel

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

You could also create the filter query directly as below:

concat(formatDateTime(addDays(utcNow(),-1),'yyyy-MM-ddT16:00:00Z'))

 

Or you could enter the below expression directly.

Modified gt '@{concat(formatDateTime(addDays(utcNow(),-1),'yyyy-MM-ddT16:00:00Z'))}'

 

Best regards,

@Anonymous , I believe you are just experiencing a syntax issue. I was able to replicate your exact error message by omitting the closing single quote (') at the end of your Filter Query. Posting my functional version here for reference.

FYI - 'Yesterday' Expression used:

formatDateTime(addDays(utcNow(),-1),'yyyy-MM-dd')
 
Hope that helps!
