Date Function Not Accurate After Daylight Savings Time Change

Hi Guys

Does anyone have the solution for this? I use the Date Time Function in I’m on EST time and I use that region, but since daylight savings time it’s wrong, it says the time is 12.33 when it is 13.33

I update a google sheets cell using this formula from - {{formatDate(now; “DD MMM YYYY HH:mm”; “EST”)}}

Thanks for the reply but… nope!

I just tried it out again myself… and i can confirm 100% it is incorrect

It is currently 2.25 am, it says it is 1.25am… i have a screenshot i can show you… from my make scenario… i got the output details just like you

But i don’t know how to attach a screenshot to this post?

It’s updating google sheets btw and the local in google sheets is also set to EST.

I can confirm the google sheets time is setup correctly also, because when i put the formula now() into google sheets it gives me the correct time

So it must be that is incorrect

What is your organization timezone and web timezone set to on your profile?


I noticed if you have a leading space on the timezone parameter it breaks…


{{formatDate(now; “DD.MM.YYYY hh:mm A”; " EST")}}

shows incorrect time (4 hours later)

{{formatDate(now; “DD.MM.YYYY hh:mm A”; “EST”)}}

shows correct time, check to make sure you don’t have any leading spaces on the timezone parameter.
