Compare dates in Power Automate

Now I just have to do add the ticks function to both sides of the condition. Suddenly all the comparison options appear. And now I can use all the options that I may need for date comparisons as the ticks function turns the dates into a number representing the date.

Fantastic! Ticks works like a charm!
