Compare Dates no longer working

Compare dates is no longer working. I have no idea what went wrong but it broke within the past month.

 

I can't seem to upload the images here so here is an imgur link: https://imgur.com/a/ZouwYkJ

Re: Compare Dates no longer working

 

Hi @atltt ,

 

I recommend that you use utcNow('yyyy-MM-dd') because the utcNow() output is Date and Time, which contains time.

 

The value of the field you are comparing seems to contain only the date, and the format is yyyy-MM-dd, so you need to format utcNow() into a consistent format.

 

In addition, you could use Compose above on the Condition to output the value of the Date field and the value of utcNow('yyyy-MM-dd') to see if their actual values are equal.

 

Hope it makes sense.

@atltt 

Hi there.  So, are you saying that this exact flow was working, and now it's not?  I'm wondering what the output from the previous step looks like.  Would you be able to post the JSON that includes the date information from the SharePoint grab?

 

Thanks!

Re: Compare Dates no longer working

Updated to today: 

"NextCalibrationDate": "2019-11-11" so it should be working with utcNow().

Re: Compare Dates no longer working

Thanks, this and adding the column date as 'yyyy-MM-dd' as well made it work.
