Today we no have a simple way to do this, but i created a function that does,

The first print is my result and second is how i did. In my case just to explain i used a compose, but a the utcNow() function get the last day of current month

The function is the below:

"@adddays(concat(add(int(formatDateTime(utcNow(), 'yyyy')),if(equals(formatDateTime(utcNow(), 'MM'), '12'), 1, 0) ),'-',add(int(formatDateTime(utcNow(), 'MM')),if(equals(formatDateTime(utcNow(), 'MM'), '12'), -11, 1) ),'-01T00:00:00Z'),-1)"

I hope i have helped.

Hi michael,

the second print don't show but you need put " after and before compose text, only this Microsoft Flow interpret as function. Copy all bold text than I post and put in your compose.

I took a slighly different approach.

At 2pm daily, my flow checks to see if today's date is less than tomorrows date. If it's not, then tomororw is the first day of a new month.

It specifically extracts the day of the month only.

Having said this, I haven't actually let it run past the end of a month yet... It should work but I havne't proven it yet

On the left of the condition is this:

`convertFromUtc(utcNow(),'W. Australia Standard Time','dd')`

On the right of the condition is this:
`adddays(convertFromUtc(utcNow(),'W. Australia Standard Time'),1,'dd')`

@Anonymous ,

Did your flow run successfully when it ran past the end of April?

If it did - that's a very smart workaround - but it's really difficult to test 🙂

Yes it did!

It is a bit tricky to test though... Apart from being very patient...

I'd kind of tested it by changing the 'Is Less Than' to 'Is Greater Than' and the flow still worked, but in the opposite direction.

@Anonymous,

That's great.

I guess there are other ways to test it. However, you can't really be sure until you see it working with the specific logic.

I'm creating a flow right now based on your solution. Then I'll wait until June to see if it works

Thanks for your input.

@gamoraes  Excellent, thank you for this. I needed it badly. Question, what if I just need yyy-mm-dd as ouput and discard the time zone stamp, what would be the adjustment to the formula. Thanks in advance.
