There is an activity called Calculate Date Time Difference which takes in a date and a subtracted date. It is preferred to use this activity in your content authoring.
Complete these steps:
Use the actual date/time variable type and not the string. You can confirm that it is the correct variable type as it will have a calendar type icon when selected. For example, Process.Start Time and Process.End Time.
If you have a configured date/time, run it through the parse date activity to turn it from a string into a date/time variable. Once complete, you can compare it to another date/time variable.
In order to verify the date/time variable, put it into your comparison and you should see a standard numeric type comparison operator, such as <, >, or =.
