delay until timestamp format

I want to delay an action until a specific time (08:30P) in the current day. How should I format the timestamp variable in the Delay Until action?

Hi blokpardi,


It seems that you cannot achieve this in "Delay Until" for now as you can see there is not such Date function in the workflow definition language so far:


But since your requirement is to make the action run at a specific time of the day, I suggest you could consider if you could use the "Schedule" trigger in the flow:



You could see that it contains a Start time field in advanced option which you can set to 8:30p and add the following actions below it.


Let me know if this could help.

Odd, I can't seem to find the recurrence action in the schedule activity. The schedule only gives me a count and unit, but no advanced options. Where do I find recurrence?

Nevermind, I see it. You only get recurrence if it's a trigger. What I want is to manually trigger the flow from a button, then set a specific time later in the day for the notification. Seems that's not possible?
