Calendar Change Notification (not working properly)

Hello community,

this is my first flow and I am a little stuck.

 

Situation: I am sharing my calendar with other persons. Using e.g. iCloud sharing before, the others get a notification when there is e.g. a new event, a changed event or a deleted event.

 

I now try to have the same for Outlook.com calendar sharing via Power Automate.

 

My current flow is as follows:

-> "If new event added, updated or deleted"
-> Convert Time Zone (Start Date/Time of Event) to German Time Zone
-> Send E-Mail Notification (Event "xyz" added on "dd.MM.yyyy HH:mm")

 

BUT: When the event is deleted, I always get an error within the workflow as the time (for the deleted event) cannot be converted.


How can I resolve this issue resp. what do I need to enter as condition? Something like "IF Action Type == Deleted THEN Do not convert time zone")

 

Looking forward to your suggestions 🙂

Hey @manuelstgomes 

 

first of all: thank you for your quick reply.

 

In the meantime I have it running this way (goes similiar to your proposal):

I have seen that the error is indicating the "" regarding the start date/time. Currently if I delete an event, I dont get any notifications to be sent out. Would this be the case using your proposal? Or will the effect be the same?

Hi @Tobias_S 

 

You have 2 flags that you can use to check if the event was created or changed:

You can filter based on these and ignore the delete.

 

Can you please check if and let me know if you have any questions?

Hi @Tobias_S 

 

I think the result is the same. As long as you don't run it on deleting, it's okay. I think you got it 😀. Well done!

Hello @manuelstgomes 

 

thank you again for your feedback.

 

Is there any chance to catch the deleted case? With the original start date and meeting title?

Hi @Tobias_S 

 

Yes, if you include in your Condition "IS Inserted or Updated," the "No" part of the condition is the deleted ones. Then you can parse them, taking into consideration that some fields may be missing.
