Problem with TimeZones updating CDS data with Power Automate

My TimeZone is UTC+1.  I have several date fields in my entity.  One field is "Order date" with the date 2020-11-12

 

When i use this field in Power Automate the "Order date" is shown as 2020-11-11, and not the correct date that is 20-11-12. 

 

Im going to use this date to do a lot of calculations, so i need that order date have to be correct in Power Automate. 

 

Some fields are also in "Date and Time" format.  In CDS the time is 11:20 (correct time), and in Automate it is in UTC time 10:20. 

 

I need help to solve this problem so the date and time fields in Power Automate is correct.

Power Automate does show date time fields in UTC, so the date is the same, it isn't displaying adjusted to your timezone.

Elaiza Benitez has some really good stuff about date fields, and transforming dates to timezones in Power Automate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIpQyPYCjIk&feature=emb_logo

 

But I have a better suggestion--make your date fields on order really date only--having a time on an order doesn't really serve any purpose. What you describe now is storing them at 12 am--this will be the day earlier when viewed in an earlier timezone

 

So set the field to behavior date only or timezone independent so they show the same date for everybody.
