Error: Id is malformed at Create event (V4)

I am trying to create a flow that automatically adds an event and sends and email when a new item is created in a certain list. When I test the flow, it fails at creating the event. I get an "Id is malformed" and "BadRequest" error. Please advise.

This is the solution when you have a calendar in SharePoint. You must use the SharePoint "create item" to create an event in the SharePoint calendar using workflow. The create event outlook is only for outlook calendar which is usually your personal calendar. I've listed the solution below.

 

1. When Item Is Created

 

2. Use the SharePoint --> Create an Item

   A. Site Address: fill in your site address where the SharePoint calendar is located

   B. Under list name, enter a custom value. In this case, you will need to put in the name of the calendar which is "Production Orders Calendar" --> Fill in all the event start time, end time, and subject.

 

3. Use Sharepoint -> Send Email Notification (V3)

 

Boom and you are done!

Hi!

Did you select the 'Calendar ID' from the dropdown list? If you just typed its text value I believe it will not work

Hope this helps

The calendar is personal calendar or shared calendar?

The calendar does not show up in the drop down and I have successfully created a different workflow by typing in the calendar name. But yes, it is typed in verbatim. 

The calendar is a group calendar on the sharepoint site.

As @efialttes mentioned, the flow won't be able to resolve typed names ie., recognize the names. We must select it from the drop down.
