Syncing between Google and Outlook Calendars creates duplicate events

I am trying to avoid circular logic. When I create a calendar entry in Outlook, I am trying to create one in google and visa-versa.

 

The problem should be obvious--> one triggers the other.... is there a way to add a condition to check for the existence of preferably the event ID... if not the name before inserting a new event?

 

Thank you ahead of time!

Re: Syncing between Google and Outlook Calendars creates duplicate events

Hi Peteunderwood,

 

Per my test, it seems that it is not possible to check if an event has been created in the calendar. I referred to this documentation about Workflow definition Language, please check it for a reference:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/logic/definition-language

 

If convenience, please consider to submit it as new feature request on Flow ideas Forum, so it might be considered as new release in the future:
