Display Shared (not personal) calendar in PowerApp

I would like to be able to setup an Outlook data connection using the credentials for a shared calendar and not my personal calendar.  This is a calendar that has all the company paid holidays for all of our offices in it.  

 

I can't seem to find a way to add or edit the Ooffice365Outlook connector to use the shared calendar credentials and not mine.

It seems that your request is not currently supported for PowerApps and PowerAutomate.

 

Your idea was already submit it also for PowerApps and for PowerAutomate, so you can support it:

Hi @JR-BejeweledOne ,

 

Yes, the function you mentioned is not supported in PowerApps. Please submit an idea to PowerApps Idea forum.

However, you can try to use flow to realize it. The Flow listens to a specific mail subject (URL) and converts the body content to JSON. The JSON values could be used for the calendar event. This flow enables to create a calendar event for any Office365 account. For more reference: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/V4CalendarPostItem-Error-String-was-not-reco... Please check the last post from @Nusserdt .

Unfortunately that would not be helpful.   I am not looking to create events in a calendar.   I have a calendar that is for Company paid holidays and it's already populated.    I was hoping to be able to display that calendar along with a dropdown where people could select the country they want to see.

I have a similar need. Since  I did not need/want them to edit the events on these calendars, I ended up publishing the various shared outlook calendars, then added a screen to my Power App that contains links to the published calendars. My colleagues now can see all events in each calendar.   Not the best workaround, but it does give them the events.

I’m reading this thread and I’ve used the docs online, but I don’t know how to refer to the calendar of a shared mailbox or if there is another way of creating a shared calendar via my own account (like the public holidays)

 

how do I refer to that shared calendar?

 

please help me on the code used at select of the app (as I would expect the solution in that area)

Can you please explain how you did this?  We have a calendar tied to a shared Outlook account and I am trying to see how we can share this out without anyone being able to move meetings.
