Flow Button generates inconsistent date (UTC) vs timestamp (local time)

I'm trying to use some of the parameters from the Flow Button, but I've noticed that the datetime values it generates are inconsistent:

 

key-button-timestamp shows me current timezone time

key-button-date shows me UTC date.

 

Is this behavior intentional?

Hi @michowl,

 

The behavior you observed is by design. The initial idea was to have the date in UTC to get a unifor representation. However, we are now considering changing that to avoid cunfusion.

 

Thanks for your input,

I'm also unable to extract the timezone information from the timestamp, even though it's local time.

formatDate(triggerBody()['timestamp'],'zzzzzz') returns +00:00 when it should be -08:00

Even I'm facing same issue, dates show is UTC, where as what I want is local time.

I'm also having the same issue.

 

My Flow works this way:

1. Trigger from button

2. Get timestamp and inset timestamp into Excel row

 

Inputs: 2017-04-19T13:57:07+10:00

Output: 2017-04-19T03:57:07Z

 

 

The correct time should be the input value (13:57)
