Flow email option to add to Outlook calendar for O365



 I have a SharePoint list setup for Time off request. I have set up an approval flow for this list. When the manager approves the request I would like them to receive an email with an option to add it to their Outlook calendar. 


 is this possible?

Re: Flow email option to add to Outlook calendar for O365



The short answer is no - I just don't see any way of accomplishing your goal with "out of the box" Flow features.  The primary issue is that your Flow will not be able to create calendar entries in a users calendar (unless that user has granted you permissions to do so).  Also, you don't have the ability to customize the Flow approval response email.


If there is a solution, it will likely invlove an API call of some type.

Okay what if the account with the flow has permission? Can I just set it up so it would automatically add it to the manager’s calendar?
