Issue with utcnow returning false

Hello, 

I'm trying to set up a flow so our team can be notified when multiple tasks are due on a certain day. However whenever I test the flow, the "DueDate is equal to formatDateTime(utcNow(),'yyyy-MM-dd')" condition always returns false. I've played around hoping that I could get the expression to log as 'true' but with no luck. If anyone has any solutions I would greatly appreciate it!Screenshot (71).pngScreenshot (70).png

Hi @kbredden 

 

Good question. Please have a look at my tutorial video about how to set dynamic values under the expression.

Hi @kbredden 

 

Do the same formatDateTime expression also for valueDueDate field.

@abm Thanks for your response! Could you explain to me exactly how to do that? Currently when I try to add the formatDateTime to the valueDueDate expression it just replaces the valueDueDate.
