Creating a buffer event when I create an event in outlook

Hi

 

I am trying to create a flow that would work as follows:

 

1. User creates or accepts a calendar event. (e.g. Create or accept a sales meeting from 2pm to 3pm.)

2. System prompts user if he wants to create a 1/2 hour buffer appointment after the meeting - (3:00pm to 3:30pm) which would just say Buffer Time or something like that. (if you could be allowed to choose the duration that would also be a bonus)

3. User can accept or decline.

 

#2 is a nice to have.

 

I have tried to create a flow but I can't figure out how to tell the flow that the start time of the buffer meeting is the same as the end time of the meeting that triggered the creation of the buffer.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Hi @PeterJGross ,

 

Please do not set the time zone. The time zone used in Flow is UTC, so the time passed here will be converted.

 

The time zone of the time passed to Flow changes, and the time of delivery will change according to the corresponding service, so there is no need to set the time zone in Flow.

Please try again.

Hi @PeterJGross ,

 

Please try typing end in the Dynamic content search box so you could see End Time of the specified event.

Thank you that worked. However, now it is creating the event but a number of hours later than it should be.  I can't figure out why.
