Flow is triggering fine and updates event, but it still gives a Timezone error

Hi everyone, 

 

First post and new to Flow (or Power Automate now). I have a Form that my users fill out to attend a meeting at a fixed date and time. The flow extracts a few key questions and based on the response, different actions happen. The current issue here is that everything seems to be working fine but when I see my logs I see a failure state (see below)

As stated in the subject the flow seems to work just fine - in fact, I thought using the 'Update Event (v4)' function would only update for me but it seems to send an email/invite to the other person too which is great. I tried various formats using the ISO 8601 wikipage as a reference, yet the error message still persists (and seems to work fine).  My current flow is below :

Hi @Ali1 ,

 

Do you mean that the value entered in the Convert time zone action is not output from Form response?

Is this time a fixed time every day? If so, you may refer to the following method to configure the Convert time zone action.

Expression reference:

formatDateTime(utcNow(),'yyyy-MM-ddT09:00:00Z')

Hi @Ali1 ,

 

Could you provide details of the form's questions?

It seems that the answer entered by the user does not match the date format required by the Convert time zone.

Hi @v-bacao-msft 

 

Sorry I thought I'd posted this before but:

The forms questions that is supposed to trigger the update event are two "Yes/no" questions. If both answers are Yes then the Update Event is triggered. There are no time related questions in the form.  

What is the input for the convert action in the first screenshot when you get that error message? It says “0900” isn’t valid, which makes sense since the action expects something like ‘dd-MM-yyyy’. Your current flow screenshot doesn’t have a convert action; did you decide to remove it entirely?
