Between times Filter not working

I am trying to only show items  within today  if the start time and end time is today since this is being displayed on Sharepoint. 

the gallery does not change no matter if i use Now as well which i think should work. 

 

Sort(Filter('PTO Calendar', 'Start Time' <=Today() && 'End Time' >=Today()), SortOrder.Descending)

Looks like its a logic issue as the 'start time' is less than or equal to and the 'End Time' is greater than or equal to.

 

So try that:

Sort(Filter('PTO Calendar', 'Start Time' >=Today() && 'End Time' <=Today()), SortOrder.Descending)

 

I would also say that Today() should be stored in a variable as it will help with delegation.

Now it brings nothing back from the list so i must be missing something else since that is coming from a SharePoint List

Hi @Nix23 

If you want it to show only if start time and end time are both today then use:

Sort(Filter('PTO Calendar', IsToday('Start Time') && IsToday('End Time'), SortOrder.Descending)

Sorry, I left out a bracket, my bad.

I get delegation warnings, but not errors.

Can you please share your formula, with the errors?

Your Sort currently says "SorSort"

Fixed that and now its blank and i know there are items in the list with a Start Date and End date.  

 I can only guess it does not like the format of the date/Time  in the list but not 100% that's it.

Sharepoint dates were meant to be delectable by now but alas are not.

What I would suggest is a mod to your data source to have a column named Day and write today() in that column when the record is created. Either that or use Flow to do it.

That way you can just call today to return the records then sort. I would also say collect the data before you sort too.
