Create a Group Event - start and end times are incorrect - time zone issue?

 I'm using the create a group event action in Flow, and the events show in outlook with start/end times that are 2 hours later than what was entered into the Flow. I assume this is a time zone thing, but I'm not sure what the best way to correct it would be.

When I look at the events in the outlook calendar, I see a description that shows: "This meeting has been adjusted to reflect your current time zone. It was initially created in the following time zone: (UTC) Coordinated Universal Time."

 

Any thoughts on the best approach to correct this are welcome.

Thanks!

Brian

Hi @scalawagd,

 

You could use the addHours() function to add or subtract the corresponding time difference between the input Start Time and End Time to ensure that the time you enter is the same as that displayed on Outlook.

Now that you know that the time displayed on Outlook will be two hours late, you could set the second parameter in the addHours() function to -2, as below:

Please take a try and let me know if issue still exists.
