In Microsoft Flow, how do I create whole new CALENDAR using Office 365 Outlook connector? I cannot find the action for that.

I'm trying to programatically create new Calendar(s) as needed, based on business logics. But cannot find an available "action" provided for that purpose, in Microsoft Flow. Can someone help me on this please?

 

That is in-fact, just a common feature available in Office 365 Outlook service itself.

Hi @anonymust,

 

As far as I am aware there is no specific action for this in the Office 365 Outlook connector.

 

However, as a workaround you could use the Graph API and specifically the Create Calendar method:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/user-post-calendars?view=graph-rest-1.0&tabs=http

 

Below is an example of that approach.

 

1. A Send an HTTP request action (Office 365 Groups Connector)

{
  "name": "Power Automate Calendar"
}

2. The end result in my Outlook

This looks like a pretty great workaround. Will try that. Thank you!
