Can't send datetime to flow.


I'm building a chatbot, that asks the user for a date, using the Date and Time entity. This value is stored with data type of datetime.


I would like to pass this value to an action, but it won't let pick the variable from the list of options. The action itself asks for a PVA input with datatype text. 


How can I pass the datetime to my action?

Hi @janszett,

As far as I am aware the Power Automate PVA trigger action currently only supports text, number and boolean input data types.


I was running into the same issue when I came across this post. If I can find a workaround I will post it over here.

Thank you.
