Planner "When a task is created" - sending a calendar invite with the task info to the user task is assigned to

Hopefully someone can help me out. I've been searching high and low and trying to get this right. I have been working on this and the last piece is giving me a fit.

When a user is assigned a task, I want to send a calendar invite, as well, to the user to be able to add it to their Outlook calendar. I can't seem to find just "Send an invite" or anything close, as an option and decided to use the group calendar for testing purposes. I think if I could find a simple send an invite, it could be done. Just haven't located it.

 

Below is my flow:

Thanks for any insight!

Hi @bbwilson14,

 

I tried to repeat the Flow on my side to create a Group event but not find the same issue:

Could you please check if the configuration is correct? Contains the start date, due date, etc.

I got it now. I reversed the order the flow was in and created a calendar event after "when a task is created" then I pulled the "User Profile" info. I tested it and it sent the even to my calendar in Outlook with the time I input as the default timeframe. Thanks for chiming in! Below is what it looks like.

I'm using the start and due date for the task from Planner. Is that what you're using in your "Create a Group Event"?
