O365 to Google calendar sync template

There is a template called "Sync Office 365 Outlook Calendar with Google Calendar and Excel (Business)" at https://australia.flow.microsoft.com/en-us/galleries/public/templates/7cf04fa1ca524da88c16d4099be8fd..., which I am trying to make work.

The template library says it is "By Microsoft Flow Community" and is described as:

When an event is added, updated or deleted in Office 365 Outlook Calendar, update the Google Calendar and the Excel Online(Business) spreadsheet as per the action selected. The Excel Online(Business) spreadsheet must have the following columns: OutlookCalendarId, GoogleCalendarId.

The trouble is that there is no documentation about how to set up the Excel spreadsheet, and I've spent hours trying different things but am getting no where.

Does anyone know anything about this template?

If you export the flow to a Zip file it will force people who import it to create their own connections.  As you pointed out earlier, it would also be good to include some instructions on how to build the Excel file that the flow uses since that can't be included in the export.

OK, I finished up this sync flow, submitted it as a template to Microsoft, and created a zip file package. I can't see how to attach a file to this message, so I put the zip package here if anyone wants to download it: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Q_nhzomm75qMmC9ALlQYZ9KvtjzrkY2j

I've learned a lot in the 5 days I've been exposed to Power Automate.

So... I wrote some documentation that should be clear and detailed enough for another newbie to understand, not only how to configure the template, but also how to build this flow from scratch. My write-up is on my blog here: https://www.nablu.com/2020/03/syncing-office-365-to-google-calendar.html

I hope that is helpful to folks reading this thread.

I'm very keen to see how you go with this. Please keep us posted.


I got the flow working, and I documented it all on my blog so that other newbies like myself can download and configure the flow or even build it from scratch.
