Hi @Anonymous,

 

You can start with the following function. In this function, you add 2 hours to the utcNow(). Just remember the utcNow() date and time will vary based on your time zone.

addHours(utcNow(), +2)

Hi @Anonymous,

 

The UTCNow() function currently could only return the time in UTC time zone, and Microsoft Flow as an Online service, currently could only work with time in UTC time zone.

If you would like it to display in local time zone, then please take use of the Addhours funciton to deal with the time lag.

For example, if your time zone is PST, then to display the time correctly, you would need to take use of expression as below for the UTCNow():

AddHours(UTCNow(),-8)

For how to take use of expression, check the blog below:

Use expressions in flow actions

Please refer to the Working with dates part.

hello @faustocapellanj

 

 

Thank you for the reply i was using only utcnow() and in beirut its utc + 2 hours so now i used 

addHours(utcNow(),-14) so your proposed solution worked properly .
