Reformatting date in planner tasks

I am using a public template to send a daily email of planner tasks and need to update the date formats. I have looked this up but can't figure out the best way to configure it.

 

I have tried to wrap an expression around the start date but it keep saying expressions was invalid. Maybe I am writing it wrong but the expression used was:

  • formatDateTime(items('Iterate_through_tasks')?['startDateTime'](),'dd/MM/yyyy tt')

 

I also tried to convert the time zone after setting the details but the flow failed:ifyes.jpg

Hi @ChristianAbata 

 

I was actually trying to reformat the planner date that I already was receiving. I found another solution and used this to get around null values as well as reformat it:

 

if(equals(coalesce(items('Iterate_through_tasks')?['startDateTime'],'NULL'),'NULL'),'',formatdatetime(coalesce(items('Iterate_through_tasks')?['startDateTime'],'00/00/0000'),'MM/dd/yyyy h:mm tt'))

hi @orolamba210  if you want to use the date into a planner task remember that you need to achive the correct format with Z at the end.

 

A correct format looks like this: 12/12/2020T00:00:00Z

you can try this

formatDateTime(items('Iterate_through_tasks')?['startDateTime'](),'yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ssZ')
