How to keep original time

The time shows on the list: 10/7/2019 11:43 AM 

Capture2.PNG

Flow: using formatDateTime expression:

formatDateTime(triggerBody()?['xxxTime'],'MM/dd/yyyy h:mm:ss')

Capture3.PNG

Result: 10/07/2019 4:43:00, it automatically convert to UTC.

The result I want: 10/7/2019 11:43 AM ( don't change the timezone, just shows as original time)

Also, all people's input time depends on their own time zone, so I can't determine the source timezone, can't use convertimezone expression. What can I do?

All Flow dates and times are in UTC.  If you are using SharePoint, SharePoint stores all dates/times in UTC - they are converted to the timezone set for th site when displayed.  You need to use one of the time zone conversion expressions or action if you want to see the date/time in your time zone.  If your issue is with an approval email, you have no control over the time zone displayed.

Hi @ScottShearer 

 

Thanks for your answer, I have one more question: the timezone set for the site when displayed, so it means if people input date in the same site/list, all the time is display at the same timezone, right? 

 

 For example, I live on the west coast and input 11:40 am, and my co-worker lives on the east coast, both us will see the same time 11:40 am, because we using the same site?
