Wrong Time when Update from flow.

Hi guys;
I have a problem to get right time from flow to Sharepoint

I initialize a variable in Flow to hold the Time Value from Power App:

Initialize VariableInitialize Variable

And Update File Properties Action to update Payment Date metadata of Sharepoint Library File. You can see the Time is: 23/12/2019 10:15 AM

But in my Sharepoint Library, the Time is advance 7 hrs. 

23/12/2019 17:1523/12/2019 17:15


My country is Vietnam, and I in the Time Zone GMT+7.

How can I set the right time?

Hi there.  It's probably just a matter of converting the timezone from the universal time (UTC), which is how all times are stored.


To do this, you can either use an expression with the ConvertFromUTC() function.


Or, look for the action "Convert Time Zone" which looks like this:

Hey @carem 


To add to what @edgonzales  has pointed out, you might want to change the regional settings of the SharePoint site. Scenarios here: 

1. If the flow is sending time converted to your time zone to SharePoint, change the list settings to point UTC time zone. 

2. If the flow is sending UTC time, then change the regional settings in SharePoint to your timezone.


I have listed this here: 



Hope this Helps!
