How to add events to a phone's calendar

I want to create an Event app which shows a list of Events. When you press the "Add to calendar" button, the calendar app from the phone should open and it should add the event to the calendar on the right time and date.

 

Can anyone tell me how to do this?

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: How to add events to a phone's calendar

Hi @YarneDS 

 

It is currently not supported in PowerApps to open one of the native apps directly.
 
Maybe, you can connect to Google/SharePoint calendar and create an event directly on the button press.
 
If you think direct interaction with the calendar app should be added as a functionality, please raise an idea on below mentioned link so that it could be added as a feature in upcoming releases.
 
Hope this Helps!

Re: How to add events to a phone's calendar

We build an app that will create a calendar item in the users Outlook 365 Calendar. 

Works fine on the laptop, but not on mobile phone.

 

I used this code (a small part):

Office365Outlook.V4CalendarPostItem(
                                    CalendarDropdown.Selected.Name, 

 

Is there a way to do this already, it is more than a year? 😉

Tom
