Creating a calendar event from a list item in sharepoint, adding the creator as the attendee

Hi - I've recently et up a HOLIDAY REQUEST APPROVAL flow in Sharepoint from a list.

The approval part of the flow works fine, however I then have to add the holiday manually to the sharepoint site calendar.

 

I think I can get the event to be added but only to my section of the calendar - I need the event to show on the calendar of ther person who requested the holiday.

 

There doesn't seem to be a field available to add an attendee. Is there a workaround for this?

 

Thank you!

Re: Creating a calendar event from a list item in sharepoint, adding the creator as the attendee

Hi @AngelinaSpring,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Further, do you want to add a attendee into the SharePoint calendar event?

 

I afraid that there is no way to add a user as the attendee of SharePoint calendar event in Microsoft Flow currently, you could only get the event to be added to your own section of the SharePoint calendar. If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

In addition, you could consider take a try to add the holiday event within your Outlook calendar and then add the creator as the attendee. I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:2.JPG

Within Required attendees field, type the Created By Email dynamic content of the trigger.

 

The flow works successfully as below:3.JPG

 

 

Best regards,

Kris
