Create instances of a recurring outlook 365 event in SharePoint

I have a simple business requirement but have a hard time implementing it. As a user, I want to schedule recurring appointments in Outlook, then edit each instance separately in a SharePoint list and add extra information to it.

I have tried two different approaches:

  1. I created a flow which is triggered when a new event is created, then used the SharePoint Create item action to insert the values in my SharePoint list. The flow works but only inserts one record.
  2. I created a flow which is triggered when a new event is created, then I called the Get event(V3) outlook action to get all calendar items (I didn't use any ODATA filter for simplicity). Then within an Apply to each loop action, I used SharePoint Create item action to insert the values in my SharePoint list. The flow works but only inserts one record.

So both approaches return the first instance of the recurring event.

 

Do you know if this can be implemented, and could you please guide me how to do it?

 

Thanks,

Edwin

Mable,

I was able to find the correct way to do this. I should have used "GetEventsCalendarViewV2" to get a list of all instances of the events. the "Get Events" action, returns the master event only.

Hi Mable,

Sorry, I cannot connect my question to your answer. I'm using outlook and Sharepoint connectors, you are using Azure DevOps I guess. please elaborate more, if you don't mind.

Re: Create instances of a recurring outlook 365 event in SharePoint

Hi @Edwin-Abdalian ,

 

I have started a flow to test this issue, it seems that only one event could be got from the recurrence events.

I am not sure if it is a default behavior of Flow, I will help confirm this issue on my side and back to you later.

 

PS: I deleted the previous worng post, please check this new one.

 

Best regards,

Mabel
