Covert dyanmically UTC to any timezone

Hi,

 I am trying to build an App for displaying schedules. All my dates time are stored in UTC format. For example there is this Flight that has scheduled start “16.09.2019  6:15:00” and scheduled end “16.09.2019  10:15:00”. For both times I know the original timezone

I want my App to show two rows. First row will be 9:15 (because the flight is from Athens) and second row will be 11:15 (because the destination is Londyn)

So basically I need to dynamically set timezone for value in field and change the underlaying UTC time to be displayed properly.

Any idea how to achieve this?

Thank you

Re: Covert dyanmically UTC to any timezone

Hi @iwf ,

For now, data time will convert to UTC format automatically in PowerApps and Flow.

It is based on your local local time zone in default.

However, it's not supported to change timezone in PowerApps currently.

 

I suggest you:

1)use local UTC time and then use DateAdd function to modify time.

Here's a similar issue for your reference:

2)use Flow to make it

In flow, there's an action named "Convert time zone", which could meet your demands.

Here's a similar issue for your reference:
