Ability to change TimeZone in Approval Emails

Currently with "Start an approval" action, when it sends emails to approvers, email body contains "Date Created:" information in GMT timezone. There is no option to either hide it OR change it to other timezone say EST. 

 

 

 

 

Status: Under Review

Thank you for your suggestion.

Ridiculous.  About to tell my boss we can't use Power Automate to send Approvals to persons outside our immediate department until Microsoft corrects their time-zone error Date Created field in their Approval actions, or creates a workaround to allow us to remove the Date Created field.  We just put up with it internally, but it would obviously be a huge issue when sending time-dated approval requests to an entire company outside your own department, if the created time is wrong.

I wonder how this is progressing?

Microsoft admins - we definitely could use this feature at my company. Please consider this on your roadmap.

Please add this into your release as this has been an issue for quite some time.

Please add this function to flow approval.

Another vote from me to be able to correct the timezone - this undermines the professionalism of a process that could be really good.

Please provide the option so the user can change from GMT to their local time zone.

Thank you.

Has this been resolved yet?

Today the format of my Power Automate approval flow emails changed, and along with it the GMT time zone miraculously disappeared and was replaced with EST, which is our correct time zone.  I did nothing to create this change, and I have not tested it anywhere else, but I can attest that it is fixed for us in the Approval Flow emails through Power Automate.

Good to hear, but our Approval emails still have the GMT time zone. I hope it changes miraculously too! 😊
