Powerapps trigger flow needs acces to executing user's calendar

Let's say I have a button that trigges a Flow.

In that flow, i'm using the Create Event (V2) action. When I press the button, an event is created in my calendar because the action uses my account's connection. However, the same applies when someone else uses their account to press the button. That's expected, but undesired.

 

So my question is, is there a way to create that event in the executing user's calendar instead of a hard coded member's calendar?

 

Update: I also have a Set up automatic replies action, so the question still stands to be: can i run the Flow in the context of the executing user?

Re: Powerapps trigger flow needs acces to executing user's calendar

Hi @mchien,

 

I am afraid not.

When using a team flow, the connections are embeded.

Create team flows

 

For calendar stuff, team flow would embed the Outlook connection of the flow creator, and there is no way for flow to switch the connection credentials.

While under Outlook connection, one user is only available to connect to his own mailbox, which means flow currently can only work with the corresponding user's mailbox for the connection added.

This should be the issue with the Outlook Mail service.

Some reference:

Access another person's mailbox

Re: Powerapps trigger flow needs acces to executing user's calendar

Thanks @v-micsh-msft for the answer.

 

Is there a roadmap of when this functionality will be implemented?

I saw a couple of other posts with similar problems, but that was a year ago, so this change should be soon right?
