Add time to date

For example, users enter a DateTime value into a Nintex form field for a subscription start date. You want to send a subscription renewal reminder 10 months after the subscription start date.

The action changes a DateTime value of December 19, 2018 10:58 AM to a DateTime value of 2019-10-18T23:58:00Z (UTC+00:00). The new DateTime value is stored as a variable which you use in later in the workflow.
