Create a calendar reminder when an email with a specific subject arrives

Hello,

 

I have been trying to setup a flow that activates when an email with a specific subject arrives that creates a reminder in that person's outlook calendar for 25 days in the future from the email arrival.

 

I haven't gotten very far, but I was curious if anyone has attempted to make something similar to this behavior?

 

My apologies. Someone had already answered this for me a few months ago and I never saw the answer.

Re: Create a calendar reminder when an email with a specific subject arrives

Hi @XeonJackson,

 

Do you want to create a reminder event in person’s Outlook calendar for 25 days in the further from the email arrival?

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

  • Add “When a new email arrives” trigger, Subject Filter field fill the subject that you want to filter.
  • Add “Create event (V2)” action, Start time field set to following formula:
addDays(triggerBody()?['DateTimeReceived'],25)

End time set to following formula:

addDays(triggerBody()?['DateTimeReceived'],26)

The flow works successfully as below:6.JPG

 

More details about Email action, please check the following article:
