Scheduling tool interfaced with Outlook365...?

Hi all,

 

Relatively new to Power Apps here and wondering if anyone can give me a pointer or two to help progress a project I'm working on....I'm trying to create a scheduling tool for a small team of colleagues whose workload is centrally allocated. There is a single manager receiving incoming workflow, who will want to have an overview team members' availability in order to easily identify vacant timeslots into which work can be appointed.

 

I'm using the Office365Outlook.GetEventsCalendarViewV3 function to pull through details of existing diary bookings, and what I'd really like to do is present these visually in my Power App, essentially mirroring Outlook calendars (i.e. where you can view multiple users' calendars alongside/on top of each other). I've been experimenting with plugging the data into galleries but this seems to be a bit of a dead-end.....can anyone think of a way to do something like this, or any plug-ins/integrations I could use? Or is it simply beyond any existing Power Apps functionality?

 

Grateful for any help as this one has me scratching my head! Thanks in advance

Ben

sorry for late reply - thankyou for the link though, this was helpful. I particularly wanted to replicate the visual scheduling function in Outlook, so I've borrowed some of the code from the PowerApps calendar module and created labels using start/end times in the Y and height properties so that they display in more or less the same way....not perfect but does the trick! Thanks again
