Flow -> Create Calendar Event in Outlook, times don't match.

I'm using Flow to create a calendar event in Outlook. The event itself seems to have all the right information, but the time that it shows on the calendar view does not match.

Re: Flow -> Create Calendar Event in Outlook, times don't match.

Hi @randalloglesby,

 

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

 

I think this issue is related to the time zone. When working datetimes in Microsoft Flow, the datetimes would be converted into UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) format automatically.

 

In default, the time in event details panel shows up in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) time zone format as below:3.JPG

But the time in the Calendar view shows up in your local time zone format.

 

If you want the time within the event details panel to show same time format with that in the Calendar view, please take a try with the following workaround:4.JPG

The Start time field set to following formula:

utcNow('yyyy-MM-ddT13:00:00Z')

The End time field set to following formula:

utcNow('yyyy-MM-ddT14:00:00Z')

The Time zone field set to your local time zone format.

 

 

Note: The utcNow(...) expression within Start time field returned as below:

2018-05-15T13:00:00Z

The utcNow(...) expression within End time field returned as below:

2018-05-15T14:00:00Z

 

The flow works successfully as below:5.JPG

Re: Flow -> Create Calendar Event in Outlook, times don't match.

What would the expression be if you want to use it to select time that is entered? 

 

I added this into my flow but it only returns appointments with time of 13:00 - 14:00 - so if the time is variable how do you account for that @v-xida-msft
