Create calendar event from assigned task

We're trying to use the Tasks app in Teams to organize a lot of what we do, and members of the team want Outlook calendar events created automatically when a task is assigned to them. I've got a screenshot of the issue below, but the crux of the issue is the date formatting:


Flow save failed with code 'OpenApiOperationParameterValidationFailed' and message 'Input parameter 'item' validation failed in workflow operation 'Create_event_(V4)': The parameter with value '"@triggerOutputs()?['body/startDateTime']"' in path 'item/start' with type/format 'String/date-time' is not convertible to type/format 'String/date-no-tz'.'
In the end, I'd actually like to create a 1 hour event for 9am-10am on the due date, but at the moment I can't get it to save and run at all, pulling the date string from the Planner event. Any help?

The DateTime values you are supplying are probably in UTC mode.  They need to be converted to TimeZone independent format.  You can do that with the following format.  just substitute your input values for the UTCNow() in the fuction below.
