create calendar event by email content: start date and time when email received.

I tried to build up a flow to create calendar event automatically based on email contents when received.

 

I have found a similar question about this flow. Original post. 

I follow the steps and it works but there is an issue that the Start date was not captured from the email content and the end date and time is also incorrect.

 

If any resolution for this issue? Thank you.

 

● Email content: Date should be 2020-09-02

● Flow set up as below:

● Test detailed as below: it seems like the "Output" Start Date is incorrect.

● Calendar created as below: the date is incorrect.

Hi @Sam200279 ,

Taking a look at the Start time in your Create Event action I can see that you are have the value of "2020-09-02T09:00:00</span>"

The last characters of span may be what is breaking the functionality of this and providing you with the incorrect date.

Try and clean the date one more time using another compose action, such as split(outputs('Compose'),'</span>')?[0].

 

You should get something similar to this:

Let me know if this helped!
