Power Automate changes the date on its own when creating a PDF document

Hi, I have created an approval workflow in Power Automate for documents in a document library.

After all approvals are done, a pdf document is created from the word file that was approved.

When the file is converted to a pdf, all dates are moved back one day.

Example: the 11/18/2022 date of the Word document becomes 11/17/2022 in the pdf.

The dates are transferred from the date column in the sharepoint library to the Word document via labels.

In the workflow in a Youtube video I 'copied' the workflow from, the same thing happened with the date.

Can anyone help me with this problem?hc_130.jpg

Any suitable solution for this one? I have a similar issue when converting a word doc to pdf in automate, the dates role back one day.

Hello, unfortunately there is no solution to the problem until today. I also do not know how to address the issue to someone from Microsoft.

Thanks for letting me know. The only workaround I have done until there is a permanent fix is to AddDays() to the date. Not ideal, but better than getting the detail wrong.


Fingers crossed a suitable solution is pending.
