How do you change an already existing time format (HH:mm tt) to a different format during a flow?



I've currently got a MS form that is allowing users to book transport using a date and time (dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm tt) format that is then creating a Sharepoint file.


I then, within the same flow, want to be able to trigger an event in an Outlook calendar.


Now, I can get this to work if I set the MS form input time to 'HH:mm:ss tt' but it looks a bit off to the user filling the form out so I'd prefer to change it in the back end if possible.


I'm led to believe HH:mm tt is not an ISO 8601 format so I haven't had any success with the 'Convert date/time' function within flow.


I have also been reading up on the 'Compose' function but haven't had any success with that either.


Does anyone here have any ideas for a work around to this issue please?


Thank you

Re: How do you change an already existing time format (HH:mm tt) to a different format during a flow

Hi @FlowFail,


Could you provide a full screenshot of your Flow configuration? There are also details of the MS form design.

Please provide more information to help you better:

  1. What is the time format that users fill in Forms?
  2. In Flow, what kind of format do you need to convert the time submitted by the user?
  3. It is best to be able to provide examples

I look forward to your reply to assist you further.


Best Regards,
