Hi MB3,


Per my certain knowledge, currently there is no direct date function can be used to calculate days difference between two dates.


If the two dates are within a month, we may consider to use a workaround by formatting the Date string, then convert the string into int, then get the date separately, then use sub function to calculate.


It would be convenient to have a function likes DateDiff to count days between two dates, please consider to submit a request at Flow ideas Forum, I will help collect and report it on my side.


Best regards,
