Saving datetime from Powerapps to Sharepoint

How difficult can this be?


I'm using a sharepoint list to save some records from a powerapps app, and I'm trying to save dates on sharepoint.


With a sql datasource this works great, no issues whatsoever, but with a sharepoint list when I patch NOW() it will take the Date but it will save the time as 12:00AM.


I've tried converting in powerapps and saving it into sharepoint as Text, but then when I try to display the dates in Powerapps and order them, it won't work as they are seen as string and not Date.


How do I sort this out? Code below:


If(TextInput1_1.Text = "",Reset(TextInput1_1),Patch(ORMActionupdates, Defaults(ORMActionupdates),{Title: actionslog.Actions,Updatedby:User().FullName,UpdatedByEmail:User().Email,Dateupdate:Now() ,meetingupdate:TextInput1_1.Text}));Reset(TextInput1_1)

So if you don't have access, you might not be able to create new lists as well!?  

Out of curiosity, what happens if you enter a date and time into the list directly?  Does it even offer to allow time entry?  If so, does it show properly?
