Now() value is changing with system time change

HI Team

 

How bad is that , we have only one function to get the current time and that is also giving me my system time .

 

If I am changing my system time now value will also change . If I am going to validate my condition with date time it will definately fail if someone will change the system date and time and login .

 

Please suggest if we can do something about it .

 

Thanks

Gautmish

Re: Now() value is changing with system time change

Hi @gautmish ,

Yes, in PowerApps, current time depends on system time currently.

There's no very good way to avoid this.

I suggest you express your views on PowerApps Ideas Forum. Your precious feedback will be very helpful for our work.

As anlternative way, I suggest you create a Flow that will enter the time instead of using the Now() on the Submit button.

Here's a similar issue for your reference:
