Hi @pccdonl,

 

Could you please share more details about the error message you encountered?

If you mean the Office 365 Outlook connection in the following article:

Office 365 Outlook

Then I am afraid PublicFolder is not available to access through that connector.

Generally Office 365 Outlook would connect to the corresponding User MailBox, and query the folder hierarchy within that MailBox.

For PublicFolder, there is a different MailBox which is different from the one owned by the user.

Hey @v-micsh-msft

any update on this threat?

We have a similiar problem:
When a new employee starts working for a company, we currently use a flow that automatically creates an Azure AD user. As a next step we also want to create a new contact based on the metadata of our new user in our public folder "Company-wide contacts" so that our HR department does not have to do this manually anymore.

 

Is there any way to do this?

Can't find any info on this either. It looks like it is impossible to set a reminder on public folder calendar event, to invite people or to create a flow with anything related to public folders!
