Automation to turn on Automatic replies doesn't ACTUALLY turn them on

I've created a Flow to check an upcoming event, and if the "Show as" is set to "oof" (Out of Office) schedule Automatic replies for the duration of that event.


It works, and turns on a scheduled Automatic Reply for the duration of that meeting, except it's not ACTUALLY on, and emails received during this period don't receive automatic replies. Outlook doesn't show the yellow banner saying its on, but OWA shows that it's on, but it's not doing it's thing...




In Outlook, if I then go to Automatic Replies and click OK or Cancel, it then turns on for real.


Here is the part that turns on the Automatic Replies.



Any suggestions?

Hello, to isolate the problem try to use this flow: ScheduledOOF. Will it work?
