I am building a flow with Trigger of a button wherein I am capturing the Date Time but it's giving me UTC Time. Whereas I have an audience in different countries like Austria, Singapore, Manila, Srilanka, etc. After getting their data I want to send a consolidated report which is stored in SP List.
As of Now in the expression, I am using UTCNOW()
The attached image is the ref of the FLOW
I want the local time zone to be capture when a person triggers the button from their Mobile it needs to capture the local time of his country.
Please guide me on the steps or formula which can be used to overcome this huddle.
Thanks in advance
When we use buttons we have a hidden property that calls 'key-button-timestamp', this property get the current timestamp from user that triggered the button
Look my flow below, the first action is user's time and the second is the utc time
To get this property just use this expression triggerBody()?['key-button-timestamp']
Your flow should be like this
hope this helps
What action do I need to select after I trigger
Is it variable which I need to- set variable or initialize variable
Or Current Time
Because I do not find the Timestamp for user as an action.
If you have template which I can copy as a clipboard.
Please help me I am new to flow, your guide will help me to learn more.
I somehow come to the conclusion that I need to use the Compose function. But the formula you asked me to paste it's somehow showing a bit different.
I used the same output in the title- Create Items.
On my TrigerButton Flow, there are few ask for the User to input... all are in text with dropdown.
Hi @akbarmahfuzalam sorry for late response, its mothers day 😄
Your compose's formula is right, you triggered the flow by the phone?
Because this property only are filled when triggered by the phone button.
If your flow will be triggered by PC we'll need to make some changes.
Happy Mother Day!
What would be the changes because a large audience is using the web version of my flow?
And I tried that on my Mobile to run the button. But it doesn't give me the result that I wanted.
If you could share that part only on email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can use the as a clipboard and try to see the result.
Help is appreciated
I have just checked and found it.. it works absolutely fine with mobile. But my queries still remain the same how would I achieve both.
Because my large audience is it on a Web browser in so many countries.
