Approval - Time Format not changeable

Hello everyone,

 

i am going nuts with my Approval workflow.. it is basically vacation-request workflow.

 

- Input from a MS.Forms

- copy inputs into tables

- Start and Await Approval: Worker A has requested a vacation from (Starting-Date) till (End-Date)

 

No matter what i am doing i don't get the dates in the form I want

 

 

Goal:
- dates in the European form of dd.MM.yyyy 

 

Attempts:

- Use the Excel dates -> format yyyy.MM.dd

- Use converted time dates -> format MM.dd.yyyy

- Use converted time (from gmt+1 to gmt+1) -> format MM.dd.yyyy

 

I really am lost for it right now and appreciate any help 😕 

 

Best wishes

Hey @Kastore 

did you tried using the expression "formatDateTime()" ? This should format the date to the format you are looking for:

Formular:

formatDateTime(outputs('Get_response_details')?['<Forms Question ID>'],'dd.MM.yyyy')

 

Does this help you? Otherwise please give me some more information.

Best regards

This works like a charm.
