Creating an event using Flow renames other events

Hi there,

I think I might've found quite a strange bug in the latest Create Event flow for Microsoft Calendar,

Basically whenever I add a new calendar entry from a Flow, no matter when I set the dates for it will automatically rename all of the other calendar events that I have, even ones sent through from other colleagues!

I can't seem to find a workaround for this but also can't seem to find anyone else who has had the same issue, any help appreciated

Hi @Anonymous 

 

Yes you are correct. i can see the issue is in Get Events action  it will return you all the events and when loop through each it will update all the events, so what you need is to filter the results with the subject (PLEASE note subject should be unique or you get multiple results)

Example how you can filter:

Hi @Anonymous 

 

Could you please share a screen capture of the FLOW, i dont think if create event action should overwrite other calendar events.

I think I see what's causing it but I don't know the solution

So I have two flows, one which creates the calendar and one which updates it.

I was using the ID for the calendar for finding the correct calendar entry to update but it turns out it's just updating all of the calendar entries.

I was hoping the ID would be the Subject of the calendar but it didn't like that so it must be something behind the scenes, sharing some screenshots

Thanks, i've given this a test but it's not liking my parameters of Subject eq 'URN' - note URN is dynamic content, anything else I can try?

Ah, I answered my own question 🙂

I just had to add single quote marks eitherside of the dynamic content URN and we're in business now. Thanks
