Sync from Excel to Google Calendar Issues

Hi,

 

I'm trying to build a flow that takes rows from an excel file in onedrive and make a new event in google calendar or update an existing one.


How the flow should work: I add a new line in the excel file with all the details. In the first collumn I enter "NEW".
The flow should find all the cells with "New" in the first collumn and then use those rows for new events in google calendar.

 

 

When the event has been made, it should change "New" to "Done" and also add the Event ID and HTML ID in the row.

 

Furthermore, if I change "Done" to "Change", it means I have modified that row. And the flow should update the event in google calendar to match the details in the excel sheet.

 

I'm currently having troubles with the date format. I saw in another post that I should change formatting to "text" but that did not fix the problem for me. I've tried both "text" formatting and "Date" formatting.

I'll show you how the Flow looks like now. What the Excel File looks like. And the Error Message.

Body text of Error Message:

{
  "error": {
    "errors": [
      {
        "domain": "global",
        "reason": "invalid",
        "message": "Invalid value for: Invalid format: \"06/08/2019 03:00:00\" is malformed at \"/08/2019 03:00:00\""
      }
    ],
    "code": 400,
    "message": "Invalid value for: Invalid format: \"06/08/2019 03:00:00\" is malformed at \"/08/2019 03:00:00\""
  }
}

Please help me,

Re: Sync from Excel to Google Calendar Issues

Hi @Ectra ,

 

I have made a test on my side, please format the Date with expression as below and the flow would work:

formatDateTime(body('Get_a_row')?['Status'],'yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ssZ')

You could replace the Status expression with yourselves.

And the flow would run successfully as below:

Please let me know if your problrm could be solved.
