Flow (template) for converting flagged Mails to Calendar event > OWA

OWA doesn't provide the option to easily create a Calendar event from an incoming mail (whereas Outlook Desktop does).

Though it's possible with Flow to turn flagged mails into a calendar event, we're searching for an option to let the user enter & select the Subject, StartingDateTime and EndDateTime (instead of using the ReceivedDate property from the message).

Is there an option to request user input (without using Flow Buttons)?

Any other workarounds / alternatives?

Re: Flow (template) for converting flagged Mails to Calendar event > OWA

Hi @EricDeferm,


Do you want to enter/select the Subject, Start time and End time manually without using the dynamic contents from the trigger?


If yes, I am afraid it might be not possible to achieve currently. It seems that we could only request user input from Button trigger. If you need this feature, please consider submitting a request on Flow Ideas Forum so that it might be considered in the future releases:
