Outlook triggers related to events suddenly broken on September 1st

Issues with event triggers related to Outlook 365 events, all flows were working until September 1.



  1. "When event is added" trigger starting flow more than once for a single event creation, new behavior. Didn't do that before.
  2. "When event is added" trigger giving wrong data downstream in the flow. Flow is supposed to create another event at the same time on a different calendar, but the Start Time and End Time it gives to the Create Event Action are totally wrong. Went back and checked the output data for the trigger after, but both of these were correct. There are no other actions which took in or created Data and Time data in the flow
  3. "When an event is added, updated or deleted" trigger has the trigger settings stuck. The "split on" setting is turned on, and will not turn off. Also, the trigger condition expression is stuck and cannot be removed. If I change the settings, and then save and leave, when I return the settings were the same as before. Can't fix them.
  4. "When an event is added, updated or deleted" trigger giving different flows with this SAME trigger different information. The deletion of an outlook event in one flow with this trigger is read as "Action type: Deleted." This is correct. Another, separate flow with the same event trigger reads the deletion of the same, exact outlook event "Action type: updated."
  5. "When an event is added, updated or deleted" trigger with conditional expression for "action type: updated" reads ALL outlook events as being updated. Brand new events which are created are read as "Is added: False," and "Is updated: True." That's wrong


None of these problems were occurring until September 1st. I've tried using other Outlook connectors and any of them based on events are busted, busted busted. Giving me wrong data, triggering at random. Nothing works.

I am trying to launch a new feature in one of our SharePoint sites in less than a week, and it is wholly dependent on Power Automate Outlook Event Triggers working properly. Please help. Please 😞

This sounds like a Power Automate question rather than a PowerApps question.  I suggest you post this in the Power Automate Community instead. You’ll get a better response over there
