Hi @Rg4963 


Use the Date Time connector.


Here's one I use for a Flow.Here's one I use for a Flow.


You can check out this Microsoft Blog for more info as well:


Hope that does the trick?





I should also say, just use the dynamic content to insert the Date Time output to your flow.

Cheers and best wishes

I'm on EST time 9/15/2019 8:47


which one do I pick ? My date keeps coming out as of today.

Hi again


That's because the first line is taking today's date so assuming the user is nominating a date, you'll need to use the date value that the user is choosing as Base time.


You could also try the other way to do date formatting which is to try this expression formatDateTime(utcnow(), 'dd-MM-yyyy').


Just replace utcnow() with the date value and it will be converted.


See if that works?
