Hi @Nitram ,

 

Please try using When a new event is created (V2) as the trigger.

I have done the test, Start Time and End time can be configured in Planner task.

I believe this is because meetings are not tasks. Outlook tasks are something completely different, and there is even templates for Outlook Tasks to Planner. If you view the Outlook Tasks documentation, it shows the time format you are trying to input into Planner is likely the incorrect format. If you view the Microsoft Planner documentation you can see that the Date Time parameters require Zulu time formatting:

Start Date Time date-time
The datetime the task starts (Ex. '2018-04-13T00:42:19.284Z').
Key: startDateTime

The Office 365 Outlook connector, uses UTC time formatting :  

Start time date-time
Start time of the event (example: '2016-11-01T14:30:00')
Path: Start

Notice the difference in time formats. To get your Flow to work, you'll have to do a conversion for the time from the Outlook meeting, and the built-in expressions utcNow() and convertTimeZone should help you accomplish this.
