Flow not working

I am relatively new to sharepoint and just began working with flow. With that being said, I created a flow that added a calendar event to a shared sharepoint calendar everytime a new item was created in a list. After multple attempts, the calendar events are not being created but the status of the flow is "succeeded" for each new item I created. Can anyone help solve the issue?

Hi @carolynoverbeck, to help identify the probem it would be very useful if you could post a screenshot of the flow.

Re: Flow not working

It looks to me that you are using the same SharePoint column, Date and Time, for both the start and end date/time for your event so nothing will get created. So you need to make sure that you have the start and end date/time in different columns.

In my example in the images below I have added an event to the SharePoint list. It's slightly different to yours in that instead of an end time I have specified the duration of the event in minutes. Using a series of Compose controls in the flow we calculate the end time and add that, the start time and the title of the event into the calendar.
