Filter by a date range comparing it to Todays function

Hello everyone,

I want to filter the data by a date range based on two fields that I have in the table as Start and End dates.

For example:

When I filter the data I should expect to see in the power apps gallery the above two records because their Start and End date are still valid.

Currently, the only record that is showing is the Dynamics BC, I tried to use the below formula but it seems Todays() function set the time to midnight and that's the reason why the other record is not showing.

    Filter(
        'Timesheet Schedules',
        'Res. Name'.'Resource Identification' = _resid ,
        'Start Date' <=Today() && 'End Date' >= Today()
    )

I tried to format the today function to display only the Date and get rid of the time with no hope:

What should be the right formula to filter the data by the date range and display those two records?
Can please someone provide an example?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Best regards,
Julien

Hello @Julien2,

 

I used you exact same formula  with your start and end date values

 

 Filter(
        'Timesheet Schedules',
        'Start Date' <=Today() && 'End Date' >= Today()
    )

 

 

And this seems to be working.

 

I wonder if there is something wrong with 

'Res. Name'.'Resource Identification' = _resid

this part of the filter operation. Can you check  

Hi @Anonymous_Hippo ,

The problem is not with the resource id because for that resource it is returning the right projects it is with the Date fields for the start/end date in dataverse as the columns are returning the time (I forget to mention that), please find below a screenshot:
Data.pngToday.png

For example, Dynamics BC is shown in the gallery however, the other record that is D365 CE is not showing because of the time included in both dates while comparing it to today's function.

That's why I am trying to format the dates to exclude the time during the filter function.

What can be the solution for that case?

I look forward to your response.

Best regards,
Julien

Hello @Julien2 ,

 

I recommend creating another date only column in dataverse which is a copy of the same date field. I think this would be the easiest way of solving this issue. Hopefully this is helpful

 

 @WarrenBelz could you suggest a solution

 

Hello @Anonymous_Hippo @WarrenBelz ,

The time must be retained for the date fields as it is used for a user schedule.

I tried to use the below formula, and it is populating the projects:

I removed the start date from the condition and formatted the Today() function to return only the date without the time. If I keep the start date condition logic it will fail again even If I formatted the today function.

Please let me know if this is the right way of doing it.

Best regards,
Julien

Hi @Julien2 ,

If you want to compare a Date/Time field with a Date, you need to add one more day at the end (which is actually the start of that day). Using your posted logic (which seems reversed)

With(
   {
      wNextDay:
      DateAdd(
         Today(),
         1,
         Days
      )
   },
   Filter(
      'Timesheet Schedules',
      'Res. Name'.'Resource Identification' = _resid  &&
      'Start Date' < wNextDay && 
      'End Date' >= Today()
   )
)

Hello @Julien2 ,

 

I am posting a method that is working 🙂 Firstly transfer all the info that you have to a collection

 

ClearCollect(DateTest,AddColumns(test_1,"StartDateCorrected",DateValue(Text('Start date',"mm/dd/yyyy")),"EndDateCorrected",DateValue(Text('End date',"mm/dd/yyyy"))))

 

I am only passing the start and end date. You can add other columns as necessary

 

Once you do this then in the data table you need to put your same logic and everything works !

 

Filter(DateTest,StartDateCorrected<=Today() && EndDateCorrected>=Today())

 

 

What i have learned

Today() function considers time only when the field that we are comparing it with contains time.

 

Hope this helps 

Hi @WarrenBelz ,

Thank you for providing an example.

Based on the formula you mentioned, it is showing a delegation warning.

How can we avoid that in this formula?

I look forward to your response.
Best regards,

Hi @Anonymous_Hippo ,

Thank you for providing your method.

Let's say you have more than 2k rows in that table so every time the users will navigate to the screen it will load all the data onvisible. I think it will affect the app's performance that way.

Best regards,
Julien

Hi @Julien2 ,

The issue is not the dates (try them by themselves to see this), but this bit which I copied from your code

'Res. Name'.'Resource Identification' = _resid  &&

We have to get a bit more inventive here - assuming that bit is valid

With(
   {
      wList:
      With(
         {
            wNextDay:
            DateAdd(
               Today(),
               1,
               Days
            )
         },
         Filter(
            'Timesheet Schedules',
            'Start Date' < wNextDay && 
            'End Date' >= Today()
         )
      )
   },
   Filter(
      wList,
      'Res. Name'.'Resource Identification' = _resid
   )
)
