I have created aflow that gets items from a sharepoint list. This then goes to a condition that:
If record is before today it creates a new item in another list. It then deletes that item from the item list.
It worked with the exception it did select the group based on date I wanted. It selected a whole group of future dates.
I used utcNow() < date where date is in the SP date column. I hav enever worked with UTC befoe and assume I need to do someting with that to make sure. date is a simple date, not date/time

Hi @ leyburn19,
Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?
I have made a test on my side,I have create a sharepoint list with a "Start Date" column with "Date" type.
You could create the flow refer to screenshot below:
The expression in the condition as below:
@less(formatDateTime(items('Apply_to_each')?['Start_x0020_Date'], 'yyyy-MM-dd'), formatDateTime(utcNow(), 'yyyy-MM-dd'))
The flow would run successfully, and the items which's "Start Date" is less than today would be deleted,and a new item would be created in another list as below:
The items which's "Start Date" isn't less than today would do nothing as below:
Thank you for teh response. I actually found that I could filter the list at the Get Items stage with Odat filter. Once I worked out how to look at that with utcNow() it fell into place.
Another anomoly came fromn it though. When I ran the flow I expected it do about 2500 records. It only did 200. Is there a flow limit in place for this type of action? What I did was get all items before today and basically create a copy in another list
