Create item automatically in a sharepoint calendar

Hello!

 

I have created a calendar in sharepoint and a form to booking that calendar.

 

When I fulfill the form automatically I would like to see that event item directly in calendar in sharepoint. The problem is that the only trigger available in Power automate is to create an item from a list, the calendar actually is a list, but If I put the name of the calendar, an error appear. Do you know how can I solve it?

You can just type the name of the Calendar (list) even if it doesn't show in the drop down with your others lists.  Just click on Enter Custom Value, enter the names, and then wait a few seconds (you may see an error initially but it should go away; that's what I saw when I just tried it).

I solve It! 

It was because the name calendar was renamed. With the original name It works!

Thanks

Hello.  Are you getting the calendar name from the URL? If so, it might be an old name that you're using.  Access your Calendar in SharePoint, navigate to the Calendar Ribbon, then "List Settings", then at the top of the next screen you'll see the current and proper name.  That's what you need to copy, and paste exactly into the list name in Flow.

and as @mahoneypat said, just put the name there and wait for a few seconds.  You'll know it worked when the columns are populated in the step.

For troubleshooting purposes...

1

. I find it strange that Flow is highlighting the Sharepoint Site text box instead of the List Name text box.  Can you doublecheck the site URL?

2. Refresh your Power Automate browser tab, all the steps you've been doing. did it work?

3. Open again your flow, put in the proper name of the SharePoint Site.  As for the List name, put any other list that is not a calendar.  Also expect a dropdown list of suggestions, based on the sharepoint site you provided.  Did you see the dropdown list from the input box?  did Flow accept that normal list?

4. Try to create a new calendar with a simple one-word name, and try to put that in your flow. How did it go?

 

Ho, thanks but I try all your options and doesn't work anymore
