Creating A Calendar Event from a Form - Help

I am a beginner and I'm trying attempting to use the template for creating a calendar event from a Form.  We are using Microsoft Forms as a registration tool for training events.  I'm stuck on the date-time issues in Flow.  


Template Name:  Create an event in Office 365 Outlook when a Microsoft Forms is submitted


I understand that Forms uses UTC.  My location is in the Eastern Time zone.

If a training event was held on December 1, 2019 and was scheduled for 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM, how does this fit into the template?  Can anyone show me what this is "supposed" to look like?

Hey @CarolsCorner 


You need to use the convert timezone action to convert the time zone from UTC to the desired one. You can add this action and use the response from the Forms responses and format time accordingly and then use it in the event action. 


If you can share a screenshot of the flow you have built so far, we may assist you better with this. 


Hope this Helps!
