Sharepoint to Google Calendar without Outlook 365 Calendar

My objective is to post a calendar event directly from SharePoint to google calendar, Microsoft has a flow listed below for new events only. Does anyone have an idea if modifications within a SharePoint list could trigger modifications within a google calendar event. Google calendar is essentially a read only calendar not looking to copy modifications from google to SharePoint, just SharePoint to google.  

 

Currently my work around (2 days old) is SharePoint to outlook to Google calendar, it works but has bugs. Biggest issue is when Google calendar is updated all events disappear for 30 seconds before reappearing. We use Google Calendar to share all appointments (50-100 a day) within the office, hard to swallow the idea of all the events disappearing after every update. Additionally, it takes multiple minutes to process the two flows.

 

Seems like cutting out the middle man (outlook 365) would be a cleaner option. Any guidance or advise would be appreciated as my knowledge of Microsoft Flows is limited.

Hi @robbcmv,

 

Please make sure the Event Title in the sharepoint list would be same with the Event Title in Google calendar.

And please make sure the Event Title would be unique in sharepoint list and Google calendar.

 

The you could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

Alice,

I was able to get the update aspect of the flow to work, but when adding a new item multiple events (copies) posted to google. Easily fixed with a second flow posting new events to google. Thank you for your help.
