I am trying to built a flow that is pulling data daily. I only want today's date to pull when the data comes in so I'm trying to build a formula to do that. I am using the DataTimeFormat functions of now. Not sure how to input the data to only get today's date though. Any suggestions?Thank you in advance.
Okay I looked at the data in the output tool, I noticed it still has all dates. I'm needing it to just pull today's date. In the formula tool I did [field name]=DataTimeNow(). What am I doing wrong? Thank you
@Plewis1 make sure the date field in your workflow is coming across as a date data type along with the DateTimeNow() field that you're creating in a formula tool. In the filter tool you'll have to use a custom filter similar to what I created in the sample workflow attached here. Hope this helps!
@Plewis1 Date Fixed is a field that I created in my example since the text input had to be converted to a date. If you follow my example though and create a DateTimeNow field with the formula tool and compare that to the dates that are coming through your workflow via a filter tool you'll be able to keep what you want ([YourDateField]=[DateTimeNow]). If you're still running into issues maybe you can attach a sample of your workflow?
