Cannot use utcnow

Hi all,

I am trying to use the function utcnow() to get a timestamp but I cannot figure out how to do it.

This is my simple flow:

When I execute the flow, the text of the  mobile notification I get is:

"@utcnow()"

 

and not the expected timestamp.

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

Thank you.

Re: Cannot use utcnow

Hi @nriva.

 

I think that @douglasromao post is the best solution, is clean and works.

 

But just to explain, you are receiving the @utcNow because in compose to use functions we need to put after and before, your compose should contains this text: "@utcNow"

 

Best Regards,
