How to compare with today's date in Flow

Hi,

I'm trying to create a Flow which will go through a project plan and check if there's any delay, if delay is found, a reminder email will be sent out to the reponsible person.

 

Below is my sharepoint list and the Flow.

 

I have created a condition in Flow, which checks

if column "darft date" is null AND column "draft deadline" < utcnow() then

send a reminder email

 

Usually no reminder email should be sent out as the 2nd condition is never met, however, my Flow always sends out reminders. Anyone can help?

 

Thanks!

Both your conditions are invalid.

 

For the first one click into the box and click Expression and type null.

For the second one do the same but use the utcnow().

 

You are comparing to the text "utcnow()".

Thank you! I thought I was smart to write the expression myself. I didn't know the formulas have to be created in Expression box.
