I've been in a few situations where a flow step is dependent on a specific system date (ex. 6/2/16) and not necessarily a date field (ex. conversion date).
For example, a certain send email flow step should only take place if the current system date is after a program has already started (6/1/2016) so that new people entering the program will receive the first email right away since they missed it on 6/1/2016. It would be ideal to have a choice condition of: If "system date is after 6/1/16" then send email and default to do nothing. I understand I could bring in "Not was sent email" and then send it for this particular case, but there are many more capabilities if we have a conditional choice of the date.
Another case this would be tremendously beneficial is assigning leads to our business development team based on certain dates. For example, let's say one of our reps (ex. John) is out of the office from 6/14/2016 to 6/15/2016, we can have the change owner flow step have a choice condition of: If "system date is between 6/14/2016 and 6/15/2016" then owner name is (ex. Jane). So the default choice could be to assign to John except for the date defined.
The capabilities are endless.
