    Could you not create a calculated date field that simply uses the Now() function and then use this new field in the condition?

    Thank you very much for your help James,

    I have read the link as you suggested.  and my question is similar as that case.


    As the image2 in the "Set the condition on the opportunities" section , it set the FILTERS condition as "if Status equals "Open"",

    but I want set the FILTERS as "if PlanPaymentDay before "Now()"".

    it means that I want the filter condition is not a value or a simple filed of the entity, but a Function such as Now() or Today() etc.

    But I found we cannot use the functions, and I found that the filter condition cannot use the calculated fileds.

    would you please give me help on this case?

    Thanks and best regards.

    I am assuming you are talking about calculated fields.  If I am wrong, please provide more detail.  Here is a link to the functions supported for calculated fields:
