Delay Until not firing at scheduled time

Hi all,

 

I'm really struggling to get my Delay until action to work at the correct time. I'm using Convert time zone which converts from UTC to Australia Eastern Standard Time (where I'm located) and when the time pass, the flow just continues running. 

 

Here's the flow:

 

As you can see, the Delay until time is set for 12:18 pm and it's currently 12:27 pm, but the flow hasn't run yet.

Here's the formulas. The date is coming from a SharePoint list in UTC format.

The format you are imposing on the converted time designates it as UTC.  That's what the trailing 'Z' means. Instead of shifting the time to the local time you should be entering it in the Delay Until using the ISO 8601 format of the appropriate UTC time.

Thanks @Pstork1 ! Now I understand, once I removed the change time zone it worked fine! Thanks so much 🙂
