Filtering "Get Items" by Modified month

Hello all,

 

I'm trying to create a flow that returns all items in a SharePoint list that were modified in the previous month.  Can someone help me with the proper syntax for the Filter Query?  Below is a screen shot of the Last Month variable calculation and the list I'm trying to query.

Thanks,

Month(Modified) does not work in Flow. You have to use the functions available in Flow. This is what I came up with:

 

FlowModifedFilteredLastMonth.png

Observe that each expression above is surrounded by ' - single quotes!

 

where the first expression is defined as - start of last month:

startOfMonth(getPastTime(1,'MONTH'))

 

and the second expression is defined as - start of current month:

startOfMonth(utcNow())

 

This works for me 🙂 Hope this helps you on the way!

Kind regards, John

Hello,

Using the above expression but getting the error message below:

The expression "Modified ge '2019-07-01T00:00:00.0000000Z' and Modified It '2019-08-01T00:00:00.0000000Z'" is not valid.

Hello Prav

 

Please provide a screenshot of the actual flow step, where you have defined this Filter Query. Also provide the expression that you use. Thus we may be able to help you 🙂

 

Kind regards, John

Get Items from Sharepoint.

The screenshot looks ok, but what are the expressions that you are using?

Kind regards, John

Modified ge '@{startOfMonth(getPastTime(1,'Month'))}' and Modified It '@{startOfMonth(utcNow())}'

The issue is your 2nd part - the less than is not an L and T (lowercase) - please rewrite it 🙂

Kind regard, John
