Checking calendar for existing events between 2 dates entered

Hi

First post folks  for someone just trying to learn,so be gentle 🙂

Can anyone suggest the best way to check a calendar for any existing appointments between the start date and end date of the new event bing entered.

 

Not really sure of how to even get started with this so any advice or tips to push me in the right direction would be great.

 

Thanks in advance

Martin

Re: Checking calendar for existing events between 2 dates entered

Hi @MartinC,

 

Do you want to get existing events that start time between the start date and end date of a new event?

 

If yes, please try the following flow for a reference.

 

I add a Condition in the flow and the code is:

@and(greaterorequals(formatDateTime(items('Apply_to_each')?['Start'],'yyyy-MM-dd'), formatDatetime(triggerBody()?['Start'],'yyyy-MM-dd')),lessorequals(formatDateTime(items('Apply_to_each')?['Start'],'yyyy-MM-dd'),formatDatetime(triggerBody()?['End'],'yyyy-MM-dd')))

Note: Make sure the dates are in the same format.

 

When a new event is created, get the existing events, then use the condition to filter out the items that between the start date and end date of the new event.

 

It works fine, please try it on your side.
