errorerrorflow diagramflow diagram
formulas usedformulas usedIm trying to use the Start and End dates in an email to update the Start and End dates in a Planner Task. I've dug through multiple posts trying to figure this out but i can't seem to find the right answer. The error seems to be in trying to convert the text date from the email to a usable format. Everything I've tried results in the error in the first picture.

You need to make sure you are formatting your definitions correctly, as defined by the Microsoft Planner Connector documentation. Accord to the Planner API documentation, the date/time needs to be formated similar to: 

The Timestamp type represents date and time information using ISO 8601 format and is always in UTC time. 
For example, midnight UTC on Jan 1, 2014 would look like this: 
2014-01-01T00:00:00Z

You can covert the date and time using the utcnow() and formatDateTime expressions. The links below outline all of the various ways to use these expressions and covert date/time.
