Long date pattern [D] not persistent in Convert time zone action, defaults back to Short Date pattern [d]

image.png

Hi all,

 

The Convert time zone action has a minor bug where the Long date pattern selected doesn't seem to be "persistent" after I exit editing the flow.

 

So if I select Long Date [D], exit flow, come back in, it'll bounce back to Short date [d] .

 

The output thankfully, is still Long Date [D], but it's a major annoyance.

Hi @hubertlam,

 

Yes, truly, I tested on my side and it happened, I think it is a temporary issue.

As a workaround, you could create a compose action, then input the time format, just as below:

Hi @hubertlam,

 

I tested the Convert time zone on my side, but it works well:

 I found that my action is a little different from yours, the Format string field is 4th field on mine, was your Flow create in the past time? I guess it is an old version. So, please try to delete the action and recreate one.

Hi Lin,

 

The long date still pops up as an output properly, but the next time you go back into the Flow, it's defaulted back to Short date [d] . 

 

There's nothing wrong with the output, just the "non-persistence" of the Long date [D]  the next time you go back in.
