list item time export in current time zone

We have multiple lists with date/time fields and the data entered is the current time zone time.

However, when we run Flows to export list items to CSV files the date/time exported is in Zulu/GMT/GMT-0 instead of current time zone.

Our flow export is triggered daily at the same time as opposed to list item event.


Any known resolution to this?

Hi @ jp_safeauto,


Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?


All data time in Microsoft flow is in UTC format, so Microsoft flow would always treat the data time in sharepoint as a UTC time when export list items to CSV files.


Please explain more details about your needs so we could try to provide a proper workaround for you.

Thanks for the reply, Alice!

We want to export the time which is in ET in our lists in the same time zone.

What you state in your reply about the time in UTC-0 is what we see in all of our date/time fields exported from lists.

But, this is not what we desire, we want the list time zone to be preserved when exported to CSV file using Flow.

Alice, were you or someone else going to confirm we can NOT configure Flow export process to export date/time in desired time zone, same as our portal's regional settings?
