Get dates in sharepoint

Hi,

 

Hope you are well.

 

I have a sharepoint List where a document can be added for approval, it has Approval Date, Review Period & Review Date.

Review Period is a choice column.

VikasNagaraj_0-1639576519194.png

I want to display the Review Date based on the Review Period selected. 

VikasNagaraj_1-1639576691946.png

 

ie:

Approval Date + Review Period = Review Date.

Since Review Period is choice i do not know how to achieve this flow, could you guide me through please. Thank you.

For Choice column you should select the value property, I have created the with the same column type like your example.

 

if (equals(outputs('Get_item') ? ['body/ReviewPeriod/Value'], '3 months'), addDays(outputs('Get_item') ? ['body/ReviewDate'], 90),
    if (equals(outputs('Get_item') ? ['body/ReviewPeriod/Value'], '6 months'), addDays(outputs('Get_item') ? ['body/ReviewDate'], 180), addDays(outputs('Get_item') ? ['body/ReviewDate'], 0)))

 

Instead of get item use trigger output for your problem.

@VikasNagaraj try something like this 

 

formatDateTime(addDays(utcNow(),180), 'yyyy-MM-dd')

 

instead of utcNow() pass the value of Approval Date and can update 180 to 365 etc. etc. to get other dates.

Thanks for the reply, i am not that good at flow, what are the steps that i should follow to achieve this? could you help me ? or is there a document or reference i can go through?

@jinivthakkar 

Could you please help me with this? what would be the steps in flow that i should perform? Thank you

@jinivthakkar  please help me with this? i tried my best to do everything i am not able to achieve this. 

Since your review period is a choice column, it should be checked in condition within the expression. Based on the Review period selected Review date should be calculated.

Replace triggerBody with the "Review Period" and utcNow with "Approval Date"

 

if(equals(triggerBody()['text'],'3 months'),addDays(utcNow(),90),
if(equals(triggerBody()['text'],'6 months'),addDays(utcNow(),180),addDays(utcNow(),0)))

Create a compose action and put this expression.

Pass the output of the compose action to the update item action.

@hemrhk 

Is this how the expression should like ? 

it says expression is invalid. 

if(equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewPeriod'],'3 Months'),addDays(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewDate']),90),if(equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewPeriod'],'6 months'),addDays(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewDate'],180),if(equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewPeriod'],'12 months'),addDays(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewDate'],365),if(equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewPeriod'],'18 months'),addDays(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewDate'],548),if(equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewPeriod'],'24 months'),addDays(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewDate'],730),addDays(utcNow(),0)))

All the if conditions are nested so appropriate closing parenthesis should be added.

 

if (equals(triggerBody()['text'], '3 months'), addDays(utcNow(), 90),
    if (equals(triggerBody()['text'], '6 months'), addDays(utcNow(), 180),
        if (equals(triggerBody()['text'], '12 months'), addDays(utcNow(), 365),
            if (equals(triggerBody()['text'], '18 months'), addDays(utcNow(), 548),
                if (equals(triggerBody()['text'], '24 months'), addDays(utcNow(), 730), addDays(utcNow(), 0))))))

You might have made some mistakes while changing the fields, Please check from your end.

 

@hemrhk 

I copied the code you sent above and tried to make changes like you said, i was only able to change the triggerbody for 3 months and rest i was not able to do it, then i saw extra spacing between the first if statement and the second, I taught that might be the issue and removed the extra spacing, i was able to replace triger body and utc function to dynamic values, but it gives me error saying invalid expression, dont know what i am doing wrong please help.

I  tried it no errors with the expression but i did not get the output it is just blank.

if(equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewPeriod/Value'], '3 Months'),addDays(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewDate0'],90),if(equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewPeriod/Value'], '6 Months'),addDays(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewDate0'], 180), addDays(triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewDate0'],0)))

BTW check triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewPeriod/Value'] and triggerOutputs()?['body/ReviewDate0'] in a separate compose action to see whether this expression returns the value.

 

Approval Date + Review Period = Review Date

 

In the expression, you are adding the no of days with ReviewDate but it should be added with Approval Date right Or is it the internal name of "Approval Date".
