Need to copy events from one O365 Calendar to Another

I am trying to create a flow that will take any new, updated or modified events from one office 365 Outlook calendar account, and copy it to a second office 365 Outlook calendar account.

 

I though the hard part would be logging into the two different accounts in Flow. That was easy!  I can also have the trigger for the new or modified calendar items in calendar A, I can then have it set an event in calendar B, but the problem is setting the date and time of the event in B to match the trigger event in A.

 

I essentally just want to copy the events on A and duplicate them on B. I dont even need details. I just need to make sure the time is blocked out so that I dont get double booked. 

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Shawn

Hi @ShawnP

 

I have had issues reading/writing dates in Power Platform applications, but I just Created the sample flow below and mine runs fine. Are you using the dynamic content from the trigger to set the time in the Create Task action?

If you're not using dynamic content, most of the power suite defaults to absolute UTC time, so you may need to apply your appropriate local offset if you are reading/writing dates and not just doing the simple two step flow shown above.

But wouldnt this add the event to the new calendar when the event is updated or deleted too? So if an event you created BEFORE you put this flow into place was deleted wouldnt this flow create the item in the 2nd calendar?

Re: Need to copy events from one O365 Calendar to Another

I created the exact same workflow, but each time it runs, about every minute, decree to duplicate entry on the destination calendar. Any ideas?
