Flow to Read Outlook Event

I have a flow that when a meeting titled "Update Reminder" is present an email reminder is triggered. How do I make sure that this meeting is the only one that Power Automate reads and not other meetings that could possibly have the words "update" or "reminder" in them? 

 

Please see below screenshot.

Hey @Anonymous 

if your meeting is always titled the same and there is no other meeting, that is exactly titled the same, you can use the "Filter Query" in your action. Your Filter Query would look like this:

 

subject eq 'Update Reminder'

 

The Filter looks only for events that have this name. The result on my side:

Without filter any filter:

 

[
  {
    "subject": "Test 2",
    "start": "2021-11-10T07:00:00.0000000",
    "end": "2021-11-10T07:30:00.0000000",
    "startWithTimeZone": "2021-11-10T07:00:00+00:00",
    "endWithTimeZone": "2021-11-10T07:30:00+00:00",
    [...]
  },
  {
    "subject": "Test 2 Other",
    "start": "2021-11-11T07:00:00.0000000",
    "end": "2021-11-11T07:30:00.0000000",
    "startWithTimeZone": "2021-11-11T07:00:00+00:00",
    "endWithTimeZone": "2021-11-11T07:30:00+00:00",
    [...]
  }
]

 

 

With filter "subject eq 'Test 2'":

 

[
  {
    "subject": "Test 2",
    "start": "2021-11-10T07:00:00.0000000",
    "end": "2021-11-10T07:30:00.0000000",
    "startWithTimeZone": "2021-11-10T07:00:00+00:00",
    "endWithTimeZone": "2021-11-10T07:30:00+00:00",
    [...]
  }
]

 

(I shortened the output to have a better overview) 

 

 

Best regards
