Filter Gallery on date time with today in dataverse

Hi all,

 

I'm struggling with a filter inside of a gallery:

 

I want to filter all tasks they are matched with today.

In dataverse I've a date/time column: named Startdate. 

 

FYI: It is a gallery inside an other gallery, that's because I'm also filtering on a textfield.

 

My formula: 

Filter(Taaks,Medewerker.Weergavenaam = Title8.Text,Startdatum = Today())

 

I've also tried to do it as follow:

Filter(Taaks,Medewerker.Weergavenaam = Title8.Text,DateValue(Text(Startdatum,DateTimeFormat.ShortDateTime24)) = Today())

This one give some results, but I've also an error:

dennisb88_0-1629895644040.png

And it's give me a delegation warning.

 

Hoping someone can help me with this.

Hi @dennisb88 ,

The problem you have is that you are trying to compare a date with a date and time field (which will never equal and turning it into a date with DateValue and text results in Delegation issues) - try this

With(
   {
      wDay1:Today(),
      wDay2:DateAdd(Today(),1,Days)
   }
   Filter(
      Taaks,
      (
         IsBlank(Title8.Text) ||
         Medewerker.Weergavenaam = Title8.Text
      ) &&
      Startdatum > wDay1 && Startdatum < wDay2
   )
)

Hi @WarrenBelz ,

 

Thank you for your reply.

I've changed my the column type to date only. For now it's OK to use that type of data and I've no delegation issue anymore.

 

Thanks again and have a nice day!

Hi @dennisb88 ,

 

Would you please check if below code works ? 

Filter(Taaks,Medewerker.Weergavenaam = Title8.Text,Text(Startdatum,ShortDate) = Text(Today(),ShortDate))

Hi @PG_WorXz10 ,

 

I'm try something. And I think I've two different issues:

1) Delegation issue:

Filter(Taaks,DateValue(Text(Startdatum,DateTimeFormat.ShortDateTime24)) = Today())

Works fine. But It's give me a delegation warning. And I don't want that warning because there are large datasets.

2) The first part of my filter formula, is filtering a lookup field: (medewerker is a lookup field to another table). It's working as expected. But it's showing an "error":

Filter(Taaks,Medewerker.Weergavenaam = Title8.Text)

This error is related to this part of the formula:

dennisb88_0-1629897352524.png

 

I don't know why the "Filter(Taaks,Medewerker.Weergavenaam = Title8.Text)" is working OK (but gives the error) and when I add the other filter "Filter(Taaks,DateValue(Text(Startdatum,DateTimeFormat.ShortDateTime24)) = Today())" it's not working.

 

Hopefully someone know how to handle this.

Regards,
Dennis

 

 

 

Hi @dennisb88 ,

 

Is the Startdatum is of text type ?

If you convert today() in a variable like Set(varTodayDate,Text(Today(),"dd/mm/yy")) on start and check directly 

Startdatum = varTodayDate will it work in your case ?

Hi @PG_WorXz10 ,

 

Thanks again for your reply.

Startdatum is not a text type, it's a date/time type.

 

I've tried to get it, but it's give me the same delegation warning.

Hi @dennisb88 ,

Try this

Filter(
   Taaks,
   (
      IsBlank(Title8.Text) ||
      Medewerker.Weergavenaam = Title8.Text
   ) &&
   Startdatum = Today()
)

Hi @WarrenBelz ,

 

Thank you for your reply.

I'm think I'm really close to a solution.

 

At this moment it's not working because I've not a correct match with the "Startdatum" field:

The startdatum is a date time property that has the value for example : 8/30/2021 8:00 AM

The Today value has as value: 8/30/2021

 

When I use this expression I get the delegation warning: 

Filter(
   Taaks,
   (
      IsBlank(Title8.Text) ||
      Medewerker.Weergavenaam = Title8.Text
   ) &&
   DateValue(Text(Startdatum,"mm/dd/yyyy")) = Today()
)

Without the date formatting I haven't the warning, but the filter won't work.

 

Any suggestion / Idea?
