Help with using forms to enter a review data into my outlook calendar

Hi, 

 

I'm having some issues with this - first time user and I've looked through a lot of help pages but can't get it to work. 

 

I have created a straightforward form and when it is submitted what I want to do is have it create an automatic review date in my calendar. It looks like it should be able to do it but I get this error response even though I think the date time are in the right format:

 

{
  "status"400,
  "message""String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.\r\nclientRequestId: e0b8783f-2870-4682-812b-ae550fec4c65",
  "error": {
    "message""String was not recognized as a valid DateTime."
  },
  "source""office365-we.azconn-we-01.p.azurewebsites.net"
}

 

 

My Flow is: When a new response is submitted --> Get response details --> Create event V4

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Dave

Hi @DaveyD ,

 

You could put a T between the two Dynamic contents when configuring Start time and End time, like:

@DaveyD  this kind of error are becouse you need a specific format.

Please run this example and see if the flow runs well.

formatDateTime(utcNow(),'yyyy-MM-dd')

Then if runs well just you need to change your date to the correct format.

Hi @DaveyD ,

 

Could you please provide the screenshot of the Flow configuration?

Does the user manually put the date or pick the date from Calendar?

I have made a test on my side, if we pick the date from the calendar, the Flow works.

Please check my configuration as follows:

Besides, there are some similar thread discussing the same situation, please check it and see if it helps:

Hi,

 

Thanks for this - I did try manually changing the format of the date because i thought it might be something like that. 

 

Where do I put the formatdatetime line?

 

Thanks,

 

Dave

Many thanks for this. 

 

I will try what you've put up and see if it works. 

 

Here is the flow I created. The date was from one picked from a calendar (so no manual entry). 

 

Thanks,

 

Dave

Many thanks to all of you - working now. Added the T between date and time and also needed some dyanamic in the get response details box.
