Formatting a date field that is conditionally displayed

I am having trouble formatting and printing a date field in an e-mail.


The date field in question only needs to be entered and displayed on the e-mail if a date has been entered, and I want the date formatted into dd-MM-yyyy instead of the default yyyy-mm-dd format


I have tried the following expression, but I keep getting an error saying that the expression is invalid:


However the following expression (without the date formatting) works:

Dual Super User III
Dual Super User III


There is a typo in the WDL function name

formatedatetime ->formatdatetime


If the problem persists, please share triggerBody()?['EndDate'] contant that make the expression fail


Hope this saves your day

Good catch!



If not, try with  formatDateTime(item()?['EndDate'], 'dd-MM-yyyy')
