Filtering by Calendar Month

Hi All,

Been trying this but can’t find an answer myself.

Every 2nd of each moth I need to collect all items from the month before, and three months before. So it looks like this:
In April 2nd, collect all items from March, and all items from January, February And March.

I don’t want to use AddMonths(now; -1) nor AddMonths(now: -3) because some months are 30 days, some are 29. etc.

Does anyone have an idea on how to help me solve this?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the Make community!

You are actually halfway there – addMonths(now; -1) is only half the solution.

You’ll need to also set the date of the month to 1 to get the data from the start of the month.


{{ setDate(addMonths(now; -1); 1) }}

OH! I see. That’s great. Thanks so much!
