Send an email if no record has been created

I have a SP List where is mandatory to create new record every day
I made a flow to alert the managers if the user didn't create any new record for the current day, but my flow is running even if there is a record that matches the day


The flow runs every day at 5:30
Get the items from SP sort by ID in Descending with TOP Count = 1
and it evaluate if the Create Date is equal to Now

Yes: Does Nothing
No: Send the email to managers

UTCNow() is a timestamp. It includes Date and Time. So nothing will ever equal to it unless an item is created exactly when the flow runs. That is why every item is getting flagged for email. You need to test your items against the date only, or test using a greater than or less than condition.
