Automatic Replies based on Outlook Event containing "PTO"

Hello,

 

I'm trying to set up a Flow that automatically sets an Out of Office message based on a calendar event with "PTO" in the name. This way, I can set my PTO in my calendar, and not worry about setting my Out of Office message to the appropriate times.

 

I've almost got it set right, as can be seen in these images: Screen Shot 2018-03-06 at 14.28.36.pngScreen Shot 2018-03-06 at 14.28.27.png

 

The only problem is that I haven't been able to figure out how to get the start and end time for the autoreply to be midnight of both of those days. Instead it seems to be giving me 4pm. How do i set this properly?

Hi @ DylJur,

 

Do you want the action “set up automatic replies” run at the midnight of the day when the trigger “when an upcoming event is starting soon” is fired?

Or do you want the “Start Time” field and the “End Time” field of the action “set up automatic replies” would be the midnight of the event’s start and end time?

 

If you want the action “set up automatic replies” run at the midnight of the day when the trigger “when an upcoming event is starting soon” is fired, you could add a “Delay until” before the “set up automatic replies” action on your flow.

You could create a flow as screenshots below:

The expression of the Delay until as below:

startOfDay(addDays(utcNow(),1))

 

When an upcoming event is starting soon, such as the trigger would run at “2018-03-07T11:00:00Z”  the flow would run successfully as below to delay the run of  “set up automatic replies” action until the midnight “2018-03-08T00:00:00Z” :

If you want the “Start Time” field and the “End Time” field of the action “set up automatic replies” would be the midnight of the event’s start and end time, you could create a flow as below:

The expression of the "Start time" as below:

startOfDay(addDays(triggerBody()?['Start'],1))

 

 

The expression of the "End time" as below:

startOfDay(addDays(triggerBody()?['End'],1))

 

When an upcoming event is starting soon, the flow would run successfully as below:

Thanks for the help, @v-yuazh-msft

 

I've done that, and I would think that should work, but it still seems to be setting my time at 4PM. here's my setup, output, and result in my outlook settings.
