## How do I capture the current quarter

Hello and good morning,

I have a situation where I need to update a SharePoint list on a quarterly basis.

My first thought was to get the current quarter, easy enough -

I have a SharePoint column called "CurrQuarter"

So when an item is added to the list and my workflow runs, I want to add the current quarter to that item.
So what I attempted to do was create four conditions to update a variable that would hold the current quarter number value

If the first condition isnt met then do the next condition

And if the second condition isnt met then evaluate the third condition and so on.

The issue is that this doesnt work.
Some direction from the experts here would definately help this noobie greatly!

Thanks

Figured this out.
The data returned by the ForrmatDateTime function returns a zero in front of the value.
My conditions were not correct because I was evaluating the variable as a single digit versus 01.

@golfnutt82 this can be done using parallel branch

Condition - for Q1, numeric value equals to less than or equals to 3

Condition 1 - for Q2, numeric value greater than 3 but less than or equals to 6

and so on...

you need to add 2 more conditions for Q3, Q4
