Create Office365 Group event and invite required attendees

Hi all,

 

I note that it is possible to add required attendees to an Office365 Group event in Outlook.com. Is it possible to do this in Powerapps?

 

Thanks!

Joel

So I did a little searching on this and the issue is really that the group calendar is not exposed in a way that it can be reached by ID.  The Graph API can get to it, but it is by reference of the group ID.

Not sure if that is something that will eventually be exposed or not.

Yes, you can do this in PowerApps.  You'll need to make use of the Office 365 Groups Connector. And specifically the CreateCalendarEventV2 action.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

@yashag2255 & @RandyHayes, thanks for your replies.

 

I'm specifically looking for required attendees for Group events. @RandyHayes, that connector was my first point of call but there doesn't appear to be a parameter for required attendees (I don't want to invite the whole group to every event I create, just specific group members). Apologies if I'm missing something!

Ah, so then that is not really a Group event if you're not inviting the whole group.  In this case you need to look at the Office 365 Outlook Connector.  And use the V4CalendarPostItem (Create event V4).

What you will need to get for this then will be the Group Calendar ID and supply that to the action.

@RandyHayes I guess it would still be considered a group event because it will be visible to all group members, but I really do need to specify and required attendees

 

Unfortunately, I came unstuck with V4CalendarPostItem too, as passing in the group id did not work. Do you know of a way to get the Id for a group calendar?

 

Thanks again
