Create Event action creating the wrong date in outlook

Hi

 

I've got a Flow which creates an event in a users Outlook calendar when a date is booked in a SP list. It's booking the day before the actual event in Outlook. Has anyone had this before? I've got the actions below. I had to format the dates for the Event action to accept them. Any thoughts welcome.CreateEvent(4).png

@darrenfloyd666 

It sounds as though you have an issue with time zones.  SharePoint stores all dates and times as UTC.  Try converting the date to your timezone from UTC.  You can do so with an expression or by using the Convert time zone action which can also format the output.

Thanks @ScottShearer I checked out the Change Time Zone action but I don't know what the Source Time Zone is? Would I be able to add my existing format expression:

 

formatDateTime(outputs('Start_date'),'MM-dd-yyyy') ?

@darrenfloyd666 

I believe that your source time zone should be UTC.
