Date field not accurate

I have a MS Form for a Leave Request, of course the only field available on a form is a Date Field, so I am using a To and From Date field which populates a SharePoint list date/time fields, but the problem is when it send the date from the form to the list, it's a day off.  I've changed the time zone in the settings and it did not change how it is behaving.  I added a Convert Time zone action in my flow and that didn't do anything either.  If I enter 09/28/2021 in the Form, I expect it to add it to the list as 09/28/2021, but it will add it as 09/27/2021, which then adds it to my Group Calendar a day off.  Am I missing something in my flow?

Hi @kmw1130 


Make sure your Site > Regional Settings


In my case I don't need to convert it other than formatDateTime using yyyy-MM-dd format. What you could do is try converting the time to UTC format and store in SharePoint.

I've set the Regional Settings to EST and tried the convert UTC time and that didn't work either.  When the date is saved in SharePoint it still a day behind.
