Completion Date of a Flow

Hello,

I have a flow that send out for an approval. When the approval or reject is completed I have it recording the date in a CDS date field. I am using the Dynamic content type of Completion Date. However the date that appears in CDS is 24 hours behind. 

My D365 and Flow is set to standard UTC time. The histroy of the flow shows the correct date and time of completion. 

 

Can anyone explain why this is happening?

Re: Completion Date of a Flow

Hi @MelodyShults 

Do you want the time text to be in the right time zone ?

However, all times in Microsoft Flow are in Universal Time (aka, UTC or GMT) by default.

So that's the reason why you get the result of 24 hours behind. 

To get the right result, you need to add another action: Convert time zone.

In the Base time property select your original completion time.

For Source time zone select UTC. 

For Destination time zone select the time zone that your organization uses.

Here's a similar doc about it for your reference:
