Outlook 365 connector - Calendar event and adding users to current event.

All,

I have an event registration PA I am building and currently the user can self register and when doing so the app will create a calendar event as a required attendee. My question is management of the event (in case of cancelling or time change) my thoughts are:

  1. Let Event admin create event and thus create a "container" event"
  2. User would then self register and be added to the "container" event as a required attendee.

 

That way the event admin can control the calendar "container" event and if need be cancel or send updates. I can create the event and can patch the event(using the ID) but I am thinking it would not recognize the event "container" ID in the patch method since the user did not create it? Has anyone attempted this? Any thoughts are welcome and greatly appreciated.

 

FYI. Shared calendar might work, however most registering for an event are non technical users and would involve support calls to add the shared calendar to their O365 Outlook instance.

 

Thanks,

Hank

Re: Outlook 365 connector - Calendar event and adding users to current event.

Hi @HankHepler3M ,

Do you want these Event admin created events to be shown up in these Users' Calendar?

 

Regarding the needs that you mentioned, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Power Apps. Currently, the Office365Outlook.CalendarGetTablesV2() action could only get normal Calendar tables from current sign in user's account, it could not list these shared Calendars.

 

In addition, the Office365Outlook.V4CalendarGetItems() action could only retrieve events from the Calendar table of current sign in user, it could not retrieve these events created in other user's Calendar table.

 

So the end users could not retrieve these events created in the Event Admin's Calendar. If you would like this feature to be added in Power Apps, please submit an idea to Power Apps Ideas Forum:

Please also check and see if the following thread would help in your scenario:
