Creating Events On Calendar

Hello,

 

I am attempting to create a flow that staff members can fill out details on a form that would then post on a calendar for the days specified on the form and then the entire organization needs to be able to view this calendar within Teams.  It appears that it is not possible to create an event on a channel calendar?  If not, does anyone have any suggestions?  The main objective is for the entire organization to quickly be able to view this calendar within Teams.  It doesn't need to be within a channel and even a pinned app would work even better.

 

Thanks!

Hi @frankc9 ,

 

SP list calendar view could also be used as the data source in Power Apps Canvas, just list the normal lists, connect to the data in Apps Data pane:

or

Hi @frankc9 ,

 

I think you could create a calendar in SharePoint top level org site, save form responses as the calendar events and post the event which is also a list item to the Teams channel.

 

Below are the steps from other threads for your reference:

Solved: Create SharePoint Calendar Event - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Send-daily-SharePoint-calendar-entries-to-a-Teams...

 

In addition, using a pinned app which connects to that SharePoint Calendar is also a way to achieve your need, you can post a message in a channel when an event is created in SharePoint to reminder everyone.

 

Hope this helps.

Hello @v-jefferni,

 

Thank you very much for your assistance!

 

I created an events list:

But I do not see it available as an option in automate when using the "create item" step.  It only show's lists and not event lists:

Hi @frankc9 ,

 

The event list I mentioned previously is the SP list calendar view.

@v-jefferni , ah ok sorry about that!  I got it working 100% now from from the form submission to creating the event and posting a Teams channel message, thank you!

 

How would I go about connecting this list/calendar to an app that can be pinned in Teams?

@v-jefferni I ended up redesigning the flow to fit the power app which is working perfectly!  Thank you very much for your assistance!
