Duplicate Calendar Events & Event Colour

I'm brand new to flow so please forgive my potential ignorance. I have successfully setup a flow from template which copies calendar events added to my google calendar into my outlook calendar. This works really well, however I get two entries of the same google event in outlook; one has all of the event details - location, comments etc. as per google calendar, and the other is simple entry with only event titile, date & time.

 

Which raises two questions;

1. How do I get only the event containing all event details from google into outlook, and avoid the duplication of event?

 

2. Can I change the colour of the google event as it comes into outlook so that I can easily differentialte between them?

 

Thanks in advance,

Jamie.

Re: Duplicate Calendar Events & Event Colour

 

Could you please share which template that you used to create the flow?

 

For Question 1,

We could add a condition to check if the Event Details is empty.

Formula should be:

not(Empty(triggerBody()?['description']))

Under the Yes part, add the create Event action

 

For question 2,

Based on what I know, currently customize the color is not supported, please consider rise this as an idea:
