Recently quite a few citizen developer asked me how to format dates in Flow. Quite often people want to send dates in an email, however formatting these dates doesn’t seem to be that easy.

In my example I’m just going to take the current date and send it out by email:

This now gives me the following email:

OK, that is ugly!

Now I add the formatDateTime function and a format string ‘dd-MM-yyyy’.

and my date will appear in the European format of day-month-year
