Hi @mukie ,


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned.

My flow with expression that you provided works well on my side.

Please take a try with your flow again and let me know if your issue still exists.


Best regards,

Hi @v-alzhan-msft


New_date field that is created when a custom entity is created automatically in Dynamics365

There was a difference in the setting of this field in my development environment and production environment.

The difference was in “action”.

In a production environment, the new_date field only works with dates,
If you add addHours (utcNow (), 9, 'yyyy / MM / dd') to this field in Flow, a conversion error will occur.

In the development environment, the operation of the new_date field is user-local, and if you add addHours (utcNow (), 9, 'yyyy / MM / dd') to this field in Flow, registration was successful.

Previously, registration and updating were possible even in a production environment.

An answer was returned from MS.
In the above case, addHours (utcNow (), 9, 'yyyy / MM / dd')
I was told that by setting addHours (utcNow (), 9, 'yyyy-MM-dd') instead, no error occurred.

I asked why it happened.
To be honest, I felt uneasy about the MS system.
There are too many bugs and we don't accept them.
