Add a to-do (V3) (Preview) with reminder

Hello together,

 

I tried creating a Flow with action "add a to-do (V3) (Preview)" including a reminder. 

The creation of the to-do in MS to do works, but unfortunately the reminder doesn't exist, although I set the reminder on "true".

 

Hope you can help me, cause I don't know how to proceed.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @jonbu 

I test on my side and at the set time it will remind me.

You can check whether the reminder time of your task is the same as the time you set in Flow.

If it is inconsistent, it maybe a time zone problem, you need to convert the time zone, because the time you filled in the add a to-do action is UTC time, you need to convert your local time zone to UTC time zone, and then fill in the converted time in the Reminder Date-Time field.

You can refer to the screenshots below:

After flow runs, a new task is created and I'll get a reminder at the reminder time.

edit: Thanks for helping me, @v-LilyW-msft! I really appreciate you.

First I thought it wouldn't work, because the reminder wasn't shown up, but now I know reminder is user based.

I have one user that runs all my flows as admin, but wanted the reminder for other users.

Maybe it'll work in future.

 

Thanks for your help!

 

Unfortunately, it doesn't work either.

I added convert time zone and it still doesn't work. I tried some other combination of time zones too, but same result.

The screenshots show the right time stamps, but I cannot explain myself, why they aren't in MS To Do.

 

Maybe you have another idea or anybody else?
