Using Flow to Move Sharepoint Calendar Item

I am looking for some help with moving an item from one sharepoint calendar to another.  I have it working the way I would expect, except for when the item is a recurring event or an all day event.  It seems like the flow is taking the original event and moving that but not the repeating events.  I do not see a way that I can pull the information from the item to determine if the item is a recurring item or not.  Any thoughts or ideas on how I can make this work?

To the best of my knowledge, you cannot create repeating events or all day events in a SharePoint calendar using the SharePoint actions in Flow.  I believe that you can get there by using the Send n HTTP request to SharePoint and calling the SharePoint API.

Re: Using Flow to Move Sharepoint Calendar Item

Scott,

Thank you for your answer. 

I have been working with the send an http request command and I can now determine if the event I am working with is a recurring event.  When I create the event on the new calendar and go to update the recurrence tag I am getting an ETag is not valid Error 412.  Any thoughts on how I can fix this?FailedETag.PNG  The ID is pulling the ID from the item that was created right before this command is being run.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Update:

I was able to determing if the Sharepoint Item was a recurring event or an all day event using the Send an HTTP request to Sharepoint.  This still did not tell me the recurrance however.  It returned a "true" or "false" value.  Since then we have decided instead of having the item move calendars via create/delete commands, to use the categories to our benefit and apply overlays based on the category field.

@NWEASD 

Can you share your flow on the move calendar item?  I am trying to archive my calendar items and using the "move file' & I came across this error:

Missing or mismatched field definition on the destination list for source field '_dlc_ExpireDate' type 'DateTime'. Source site template id 'TeamCollaborationSite', target site template id 'TeamCollaborationSite'. 

 

This is not a field that was created by me.  Seems like it's in the header. Did  you recall getting this error?

Re: Using Flow to Move Sharepoint Calendar Item

We did not receive this error.  I do not actually have the items moving calendars at this point.  What we ending up doing was filling in a different field and using filters on the front end to only show if the field was populated.  Sorry I cannot help any further than that.
