Defining time zone format

 Hi all,

I'm currently using Flow to create an event based on a date defined within Sharepoint. This flow works as expected and successfully creates events.


However, they're generated at an incorrect time zone, therefore, I've been trying to set this in the Flow itself - see below - however this always receives the error 'The value '(UTC+00:00) Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London' of parameter 'EndTimeZone' is invalid'


I'm trying to search for what format I should put this in, I've tried the below, (UTC+00:00), UTC, GMT


Any ideas on what is correct?

Re: Defining time zone format

Hi @georgeguthrie,


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

Do you want to type proper time zone within End time zone field and Start time zone field to convert the time of event into your local time?


I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:16.JPG



The flow works successfully as below:18.JPG



The Start time zone/End time zone property specifies the time zone of the meeting start/end time and the value of it must be as defined in Windows (example: 'Pacific Standard Time'). if you want to convert the time into the (UTC) Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London) format, please type the following timezone format within End time zone field and Start time zone field:

GMT Standard Time

More details about Time Zones defined in Windows, please check the Timezone column within following Default Time Zones table:
