Time calculation

Hi,

 

I have a condition in my Flow like:time_calculation.PNG

Time out is always a full hour because user select it and it looks like 12/09/2019 15:00 and the Timestamp is the real time of Checking out 12/09/2019 14:56:31.

In this example, an email would be sent because 12/09/2019 15:00 is greater than 12/09/2019 14:56:31 and it means that the employee checked out before 15:00. However, employees are allowed to check out 5 minutes earlier.

My question is how to build this condition so 12/09/2019 15:00 (- 5 minutes) > 12/09/2019 14:56:31 and the condition will be false so email will not be sent.

 

Thank you.

 

Slawek

@TheSlawekG 

You'll need to use an expression in your condition - see my example below.

The expression that I used can be seen in the comments area.

I selected Time Out from Dynamic properties while creating the expression - your reference to the time out column may/may not look a little different than mine.

@v-alzhan-msft I didn't try your approach as @ScottShearer one works fine.
