TL;DR - I can't figure out how to format date time info without losing the time portion.
I am attempting to use Flow to Create a Row in Analytics every time a row is created in a Google Sheet.
The trigger works fine.
The action of Creating a Row is a little touchy because of the yellow highlighted date field formatting requirement:
Even though that looks like the format of the system Current Datetime field, the system field does not work with the Flow because of formatting issues.
To rectify this, I am attempting to use a custom function to format the date. My code looks like this:
- string formatDate(date myDate, string format)
- dateStr = myDate.toString(format);
- return dateStr;
I then insert the custom function into Flow, and populate the variables as shown below:
Unfortunately, this ends up stripping out the time portion of the datetime parameter, as shown below:
It seems like the function isn't recognizing the datetime as a datetime, only a date. Is that a declaration error in the custom function, or is something else going on?
