## Adding to sharepoint based on Day/Night Shift

So, I have created an app where users can input their team's data based on the day and whether it is day/night shift.

Assuming we want the 19th August

Day Shift is defined as: 5:30 am (19th) - 5 : 30 pm (19th)

Night Shift is defined as: 5:30 pm (19th)  - 5:30 am (20th)

Currently, users can input properly during day shift. For night shift, users can input up to 11:59 pm of the 19th. When the time switches to 12:00 pm the text label shows: August 20th - Night Shift which should actually be August 19th - Night Shift.

I realize now that that's what the above code written is intended to do. Is there a way I can change this to shift the night shift back one day. So, if it is 12:00 am - 5:30 am on the 20th it should actually be Night Shift for the 19th.

Thanks

Hi @Anonymous ,

Do you want this:
1)if current time is 5:30 am (19th) - 5 : 30 pm (19th), then you will return: today()+Day Shift

2)if current time is 5:30 pm (19th)  - 23:59:59 am (19th), then you will return: today()+Night Shift

3)if current time is 12:00 pm (20th)  - 5:30 am am (20th), then you will return: today()-1+Night Shift

Could you tell me:
1)whether 5:30 am (19th)  is 19th Day Shift   or 18th Night Shift?

2)whether 5:30 pm(19th) is 19th Day Shift   or 19th Night Shift?

I assume that: 5:30 am (19th) is 19th Day Shift

5:30 pm(19th) is 19th Night Shift .

If so, try this formula:

``````If(
TimeValue(Text(Now()))>=Time(5,30,0)&&TimeValue(Text(Now()))<Time(17,30,0),
Today()&" Day Shift",
TimeValue(Text(Now()))>=Time(17,30,0)&&TimeValue(Text(Now()))<=Time(23,59,59),
Today()&" Night Shift",
TimeValue(Text(Now()))>=Time(0,0,0)&&TimeValue(Text(Now()))<Time(5,30,0),
)``````

So, I did something very similar to you with my original format. I was just confused at the beginning on how to shift the date to the previous day but I see that can be done with DateAdd(Today(),-1.. and so on .
