Create an all day meeting from email body date

Hi All,


I receive emails from a service that confirms the date of a future booking I have made.


The body of the email contains the following line:

Access times:

20/05/2022 exit by midnight


I've looked at examples but unable to work out how to set this date to create a meeting - the meeting start/end times I can set fixed (8am - 11pm) I just can't see how to extract the date from this.


I appreciate this might be rudimentary, I'm just starting to work with Flow - any help would be appreciated

You could use the StartOfDay() expression to set the start time as the date listed and then the following day as the end date (since that should be 21/05/22 00:00:00) in this example. Assuming you've figured how to extract the date string from your email body. Are you using the Create Event (v4) action?
