How to Subtract two dates and get the result in an integer to to compare with integer value?

Hi,

I have an entity in Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM in which I have a submission date. What I want is to make an assistant card in Dynamics 365 CRM using Microsoft Flow that will be triggered before 7 days to the Submission date. 

I don't know how I can subtract two dates and get the result in an integer which I can compare with an integer value.

The condition will be something like this.

If((Submission Date - Current Date) <= 7 Days)

then show the assistant card,

Else do nothing.

 

I don't know how to achieve this in Microsoft Flow.

 

Any help or suggestion would be highly appreciable.

 

Thanks,

Waleed bin Afzal.

Hi @WaleedBinAfzal , you need to have a couple of Compose controls, one to get today's date in the date format you want, and the second to calculate 7 days ago in the same date format. Then you have a Condition control: if SubmittedDate is greater than or equal to the output of 7 days ago AND Submitted date is less than or equal to the output of the Today compose then.....
