Pre built template suddenly stopped working

I'm using the template "Copy new events in Office 365 to Google Calendar and send a notification" which has suddenly stopped working. If I go to the runs section its showing the error "there's a problem with the flows trigger" but I've made no changes and cant see what fix its expecting. If I open edit and test it works but as soon as I create a new entry in my O365 Calendar no notification arrives, no google calendar update & the runs section still shows there's a trigger issue.

Anyone any idea whats suddenly gone wrong please and what's needed to fix this.

Turns out that Microsoft withdrew the template as it "caused problems". Have resolved by rebuilding with the help of Mindtree who support Flow.

see this a lot i do not think there is a good fix!.


best one is a workaround -> Export -> Import -> Delete Original

Hey @allan_clarke 


This error is being observed on flows created from templates or as copies. One of the fixes you can try is to delete the flow trigger from the current flow and add a new one. 


Hope this Helps!

Hi @allan_clarke ,


Please consider copying a templete using the Save As method, then delete and re add the trigger in the copy templete, next you could use the copied templete.

Thanks. Tried already to replicate the template but had no luck. Even checked that the trigger i was using was still valid as i'd seen a post that suggested some were being switched off.  I'm using V3 and its still valid so guess i'm just going to have to create every calendar entry twice. Sadly the template has been removed from the list of templates which makes me think i'm stuck with no solution. Even tried to build manually but no luck 😞
