Hi @OH2TH,

Thank you for the reply. I have seen the card with the BLL expression but I cant get the expression in such way that it’s accepter. It just outputs the expression as text.

Oh wait i dont use the ‘[’ brackets… let me try it out first.

Best regards,

You can use this card in Adv flow:

It works, but you’ll have to select your entered custom value from the top of the dropdown
(And mm = minutes, use MM)

hi @Peter_Kawa ,

It seems that the date format is region depending. I only have dd-MM-yyyy.

homey date

Best regards,

Just type in the box yyyy-MM-dd

Once it is there, you can select it as a custom format. Just as @Peter_Kawa wrote above.

Best regards,
