Convert O365 Outlook event to ICS and email

Maybe their is an easier way but I’m an admin of my own O365 account and I’m trying to update my work calendar (which they have flow shutoff for security purposes). Work also uses O365.

Ideally I would love to send my home calendar accepted invites through email so I can “block time” on work calendar.

What I’m currently thinking is to create a trigger when accepting event that will create an ICS with start and end time, e-mail to internet account.

Any ideas from community?

Re: Convert O365 Outlook event to ICS and email

@MattWeston365   I gave it up try but came up short.  My Flow successfully sends email attachment with ICS file to correct internet address but I have 2 problems.

 

1.  The ICS when accepted puts on the wrong calendar.  I'm creating the entry on my home calendar and when I send it to my work account and open ICS it saves it to same Home Calendar versus Saving to the Work Calendar??????

 

2. I'm also getting the wrong time.  When I created the trigger event it was 10PM ET; When I accepted the ICS it showing 2am the next day.

 

Thoughts?

Hi @twenty25 ,

 

Regarding the time display error, you could try to convert the start time/end time to your time zone using Convert time zone action. The time zone used by MS Flow is UTC.

Re: Convert O365 Outlook event to ICS and email

Hi @twenty25 please accept my apologies for not being on over the last few days. When you open outlook, do you have both your home calendar and your work calendar both added as accounts? When you open an ICS calendar entry, Outlook will always add it to what it considers the default account.

 

If you only have one account within Outlook, then it will just be added to that.

Re: Convert O365 Outlook event to ICS and email

Unfortunately, I do have multiple accounts.  That is the problem I'm trying to solve.....  How do I get appointments that I create in my personal calendar to block time on my work calendar.  Any ideas or other thoughts on how I can easily do this?  Microsoft doesn't make it easy.... thinking it would be easier to change my personal life to Google....
