Currently the mobile app is only a trigger for Flows. I would like the ability to have a different trigger for my flow and pull data from my mobile device.
We're currently working on a Flow to send a push notification when a calendar event is scheduled for that day. We'd like to be able to share the flow with others in different time zones and have it work when travelling across time zones. I was thinking we could do this by getting the current time from the mobile app.
I know we can get that information if the mobile app is the trigger for the Flow, but since the calendar event creation is the trigger, I need some way to get that information as an action.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You should be able to get the current time by using UTCNow() function.
See my posts in the following thread:
In addition to the Compose Action, we could also take use of the Expression from the Dynamic content.
Post back if you have any further quesitons.
Thanks for your response. we're currently using UTCNow in our Flow, however we'd like it to be able to share it with directors in other time zones and with my director who occasionally travels. Ideally it would be able to get the current date/time in the current time zone. Do you have any suggestions for how to do this?
