Microsoft.OData.ODataException: An unknown function with name 'utcNow' was found

I am trying to add a filter expression as in the ss below. But I am getting the error "An unknown function with name 'utcNow' was found when I trigger the flow. I am not able to add utcNow() function as an expression, since that is a filter expression and not a filter query. Any Idea how I can achieve this? 
PS: I could add a condition in the next steps but I would like to make it efficient, so that the flow won't be triggered, if the expression is not satisfied.

I added the expression somewhere else - copied and pasted it there:

Now I'm getting this error: 

"Microsoft.OData.ODataException: A binary operator with incompatible types was detected. Found operand types 'Edm.DateTimeOffset' and 'Edm.String' for operator kind 'GreaterThan'.\r\n"

Hi @ManishJain


can you give me an example, how to use these expressions?
