Convert get_event time to UTC format

Hi Everyone!

 

someone please help me with the following.

 

In MS Flow I use the Get_event to read the End Time of an event.

 

I would like to delay the next step until this time, however I run into the following problem: Get_event gives me this time format: End time 2018-04-18T14:40:00.0000000+00:00

 

Please help me what expression to use to convert it into such format that the 'delay' will excpet.

 

I have already tried this:

convertToUtc(body('Get_event_(V2)')['End'],'Central Europe Standard Time','yyyy-MM-ddThh:mm:ss.0000Z')

 

 

Thanks, Peter

Hi @pweisz,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Do you add a "Delay Until" action within your flow?

Further, do you want to convert the end time of an event into a time format which the "Delay Until" action except?

 

I suppose that you add a "Delay Until" action within your flow, is it true? I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:25.JPG

Within Timestamp field of "Delay Until" action, type the following formula:

formatDateTime(body('Get_event_(V2)')['End'],'yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ssZ')

The flow works successfully as below:26.JPG

 

Best regards,

Kris
