Convert Date/Time field in DB to different format in email to be distributed to end users

Hi,

 

I am trying to convert a DB field (Start Date) to be visible in a more user friendly format. I have tried the convert date/time action as per the screenshot attached

 

Date and Time.PNG

 
 
 

I then try to add the converted Date/Time to my email which is in the next step below and it is unable to be selected.

 

I am not sure what I am doing wrong?

 

Any help would be appreciated!

 

Thanks

Hi @mattyn07 ,

 

Could you please share a full screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

I have made a test on my side and the Converted Time dynamic content is able to be selected when send the email.

 

Best regards,

Can you post another screen shot of your Flow that includes the email action?

Sure here it is.

 

The expectation was that I would be able to add this from the Dynamic values area into my email.

All good I figured it out it needed to be in the same action. 

 

I added this step prior to the action to send the email which was causing me issues obviously.


Thanks for taking the time to look into my issue.
