Invite more than one attendee (Outlook.com)

Good day

 

I'm trying to send an invite to more than one attendee but I can't seem to get this right.

I'm using the "Create event (V1)" action with Outlook.com.

 

I know I have to click on the "Switch to input entire array" button but I cant find any documentation of how to write the array.

 

If I add one person in the normal view and click on the above button to switch to the array view I get this code:

[
  {
    "EmailAddress": {
      "Name": "Person1",
      "Address": "person@email.com"
    }
  }
]

Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: Invite more than one attendee (Outlook.com)

Hi @PieterN,

 

Do you want to invite multiple attendees into your Outlook event?

 

I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:

  • Add a proper trigger, here I use Flow Button trigger.
  • Add a "Create event (V1)" action. Click "Switch to input entire array" button, then type the following formula within Attendees field of "Create event (V1)" action:

 

[
  {
    "EmailAddress": {
      "Name": "Test2",
      "Address": "Test2@xxxxxx.xxxxxxxxxxx.com"
    }
  },
  {
    "EmailAddress": {
      "Name": "Test3",
      "Address": "Test3@xxxxxx.xxxxxxxxxxx.com"
    }
  }
]

Note: On my side, I invite two attendees into my Outlook calendar event. The email address of first attendee is 'Test2@xxxxxx.xxxxxxxxxxx.com' and name is Test2, The email address of second attendee is 'Test3@xxxxxx.xxxxxxxxxxx.com' and name is Test3.

    }
  }
,
  {
    "EmailAddress": {
      "Name": "Test3",
      "Address": "Test3@xxxxxx.xxxxxxxxxxx.com"
    }
  }
,
  {
    "EmailAddress": {
      "Name": "Test4",
      "Address": "Test4@xxxxxx.xxxxxxxxxxx.com"
    }
  }
,
...

  {
    "EmailAddress": {
      "Name": "TestN",
      "Address": "TestN@xxxxxx.xxxxxxxxxxx.com"
    }
  }
]

 

Best regards,

Kris
