i need to convert the date in my Survey 123 from EPOCH format.

Im using MS flow with Survey123 and SQL connectors. The time from the survey123 is  EPOCH format and i get an error 

"We cannot convert the value 1555570800000 to type Date.\r\n"

Hi Jevita,

The best way to convert the date is to use the addSeconds function in Flow, dividing the timestamp by 1000 (it's in milliseconds):

addSeconds('1970-01-01', div(<DATEFIELD>, 1000))

That produces a date that you can then format into your preferred string format or use in calculations.

I know it's an old post you hopefully where able to resolve the issue using the solution suggested by James Tedrick, I thought I would post this article here that provides instructions for this workflow in both Microsoft Power Automate and Integromat for reference:

All the best,
