Extract time from the Date time output

Hello,

 

I converted the time to the way I want. Now I want to extract just the time into a variable. 8:24 PM in a variable. 

How can I do that?

Did you try using the Format  String to be Short Time Pattern as below ,, this will extract the time part only

You could also use the substring function to extract the portion that you want. Oddly enough, I wrote a blog post about it yesterday: https://powerplatformpod.com/2020/07/28/environment-variables-part-3-and-bonus-substring-function/

 

Another tool in the tool belt at the very least!

Thank you so much! I had clearly overlooked that option.
