Translate a date

Hello everyone o/
I am currently working on a query filter of a Get items
In it I have provided the following verification: Created eq 'PastTimer which returns the date -15 days'
My problem is that I would like that when the date of my Created present in the dd-MMMM format equal to pasttimer, items are delete but when I run the flow nothing happens.
I have many items that were created with same date of PastTimer . On the other hand in my SharePoint the date is in French and in my Flow the date return is in English I tried to correct that but I can not. If that's actually the problem does anyone have a solution for the dates to be both in the same language? (preferably in French)

@ØsFënrîr when you are comparing dates in your flow you must always use a date format of yyyy-MM-dd. Using your local date format - for example mine is dd/MM/yyyy - will not work. Later in your flow you can convert the date back to your locaol format for emails or some other action.

But in my case my Created date format is dd-MMMM

It doesn't matter - all my dates are in dd/MM/yyyy format! But if you want to compare dates in your flow both sets of dates MUST be in yyyy-MM-dd format which you can do with a Compose control or a Convert time zone action.

I see, in this case I know how to convert my PastTimer but I don't know how to change Created format
