Create a folder by date

I have a flow running that attachements from a certain e-maildress are saved in a folder of my OneDrive. 

At this moment I try to tweak the flow that the flow creates a folder by the received at dynamic content


flow 01.PNG

I don't see any other easy to filter dynamic content to create a folder with
