Automatic Event Flow

Hi guys,


I'm basically trying to create a flow that will allow me to input a title into a list in SHarepoint, and then have the flow create an event 2 days after the title has been inputted so that i know when my deadline is without having to keep checking.


I have 3 columns in the list at the moment;


Title, Date Added, Due Date.


This is my first time trying Flow and i really hope it will be able to do something like this for me! I'm relatively computer literate but it's been a long day so need a hand from anyone who can help!


Thanks in advance.

Re: Automatic Event Flow

Hi @joe_birrell,


Which event do you want to create using Microsoft Flow? A SharePoint calendar event or a Outlook calendar event?

Do you want to manually input a title and then put it into your SharePoint list via Microsoft Flow?

Further, could you please show more details about your SharePoint list?


If you want to input a Title manually and then input it into your SharePoint list, I think the Flow Button trigger could achieve your needs. I assume that you want to create an Outlook event 2 days after the Title has been inputted, I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:18.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:19.JPG
