Condition based on the event length

Hi All 


I have a flow that adds a buffer time at the end of meetings in certain meeting rooms. At the moment it works well but i would like to add a different buffer time based on the meeting length, so ideally a condition if the meeting is less than 30 mins add a 5 min event called buffer and if its longer than 30 mins then a 10 min event called buffer?


does anyone know how this can be achieved ( i'm also a novice so go easy! 🙂 )


heres the flow so far - i know id need another condition before the create event etc, just not sure how to create the condition as the meeting length.

@simonmccarthy27  You can take time difference from event start and end time and if it is less than 30 min then add 5 min otherwise add 10 min.


Your flow logic is correct only you need to add time difference logic via condition action.  Current there is no direct way to calculate date time difference so you need to use tick().
