Re: Compare date

Hello , 

I managed to compare two dates and show and hide a field if the time differenence is more than a year like this :

If(
DateAdd(
TargetItem.LastReview,
365,
Days
) < Now(),
UpdateContext({UpdateBTNgroup: true}),
UpdateContext({UpdateBTNgroup: false})
);

Re: Compare date

Hi, in addtition to what MatthieuMegaly suggested you can use the string functions Left, Mid, Right.

Example here https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Forum/Using-numbers-and-dates-from-SharePoint-lists/m-...

Re: Compare date

Hello,

 

To get current date, you can you Now function

To compare date:

- I think you should convert the date text type from textfield (I assume) to date type by using Date function

- Then, use DateDiff function to compare 2 dates.

You can go here (Formular Reference) for more information.

You can use for example:

 

Text( yourDateVariable, "mm/dd/yyyy" ) = Text( Today(), "mm/dd/yyyy" )
