Storing the date input value in a CDS DateTime field

[vc_btn title=”Back to the Video Library” color=”warning” link=”|||”]

If you try referencing the date input value into a DateTime field in Dynamics 365 or CDS, it might confuse the end user. They could be seeing an odd time displayed in field such as the Due Date of a Task.

Flow, Dynamics 365 and CDS use UTC for DateTime fields. I show you how to correctly display the date input value based on a user’s time zone in this WTF episode.

Don’t forget to give me a thumbs up if you enjoyed this WTF episode.
