Date offset error in flow

HI, I'm trying to build a flow that transfers content from a Form into a Tasklist in teams. I'm using a template power automate, but getting the following error. Can you please advise what I need to put in the (I assume) the Start Date Time field to make this work?

Hello @AMG-fsb ,

you'll need an expression to store the date. There're two potential solutions to this and I can't tell you right now which one will work:

  1. the easier one: apply formatDateTime(...) expression on the date to store it
  2. if the first one doesn't work: format the date into an ISO date with the parseDateTime(...) expression to store it, the date format should be as below:
parseDateTime(<theDateFromForms>, 'en-US', 'M/d/yyyy HH:mm:ss tt')
