Launching Outlook Calendar From PowerApps

Hi,

 

I am trying to launch User Desktop Outlook Calendar when clicked a button in power apps. I don't want to caputer any information back from it, but pass information like Date and input text from PowerApps to Outlook. I tried using "Launch("https://outlook.office.com/owa/?path=/calendar/action/compose&body= Meeting Type: " & DataCardValue9.Selected.Value & "&to=" & User.Email & "&StartTime="& DataCardValue4.SelectedDate)". However, this opens the outlook in web browser rather then opening the desktop Outlook Calendar. Can anyone help with this?

@spatel24991 Launch() can be used only to launch a Web Page and not Windows programs from PowerApps.

This is a limitation due to security reasons.

Yes, you can launch Windows apps as long as they have a URI associated with them.

You will not be able to open Outlook and specifically go to the calendar screen.

You can see a list of most all of the URI's you can launch at this link.

There is an outlookcal: , but it really opens the Windows calendar app.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

Hi @RandyHayes I couldn't get it working. For example, what code would you use to start the calculator.

Thanks RandyHayes for quick response. I have been able to open Outlook by using Launch(mailto:'email@domain.com') command and setting Outlook as default program to open file like this. I am looking for similar command which might open calendar in desktop outlook directly.

Launch("calculator:")

There is no URI that will open the Outlook Desktop Application to the calendar screen.  The best you will get for calendars is the Windows 10 Calendar app.   Launch("outlookcal:")
