addHours function(Power Automate Cloud flows)

Japanese version.

Adds the specified number of hours to the date and time.

Although not an unnecessary function, it is sufficient to unify date calculations with addToTime.

How to use

In most cases, it is used in the "value" when initializing or setting variables of type "string".

Click on the "Expression" tab, addHours, and the function name and () will be set in the expression field.

If you want to use dynamic content or variables, the ,delimiter is the same.

(How to get dynamic content with expressions.)

For example, addHours('2022-01-02T14:00:00',1) would result in January 2, 2022 at 15:00.

If it can be recognized as a date, it will be calculated in other formats as well.
