failed to update event on google calendar from O365 calendar

hi, I am trying to create a flow that would update or delete an google calendar event if a O365 calendar event is deleted or updated. 

 

I use the trigger: When an event is modified

 

and put in a condition:  Is cancelled is equal to true

 

if Yes: Delete an event (on google calendar)

if No: Update an event

 

For some reason if I remove an event on my O365 calendar it doesnt seem to trigger an event. And if I tried to update the event time, it would trigger but fail to update with the following error:

any idea how can I get this to work?

Re: failed to update event on google calendar from O365 calendar

Hi AI,

 

I create a similar flow with you, I get the same issue. when I remove an event on my Office 365 calendar, the flow would be not triggered, if I modify the event, I would get the same error message the same with you.

 

It seems that “Is canceled” is not supported in the condition.

 

As a temporary workaround, may I suggest you create two flows to update or delete event in Google Calendar? Please create two flows to see if they can meet your needs.

Re: failed to update event on google calendar from O365 calendar

Hi Mabel, I did try to create a separate flow to just update the event in Google calendar, it's basically the same without the condition and it gave me the same error when I modify an existing event.

 

And I cannot create a separate flow to delete an event without using the "Is Canel" condition since there isnt a O365 calendar trigger for "if event is deleted"...

Hi Alfred,

 

I test again about this issue, I create a flow to update the event in Google calendar when an event in Office 365 calendar is modified. When the flow is triggered, I actually get the error message the same with the flow which has a condition. About this issue, may I suggest you send a feedback by opening a support ticket by going here:
https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/support/

 

About the trigger “When an event is deleted” for Office 365 calendar, you could also submit an idea at Flow Ideas Forum, so it might be considered as a future release:

Re: failed to update event on google calendar from O365 calendar

hi Mabel,

 

I am unable to access the the summit Admin ticket website, the other link is going back to this same community board.

 

Are you suggesting I should post this again on this board? or is there another way I can submit a support ticket for the issue?

Hi AI,

 

I have seen another thread which has the similar issue. I have reported it from my side about the issue with “Update event” action.

 

The similar thread is:

Re: failed to update event on google calendar from O365 calendar

I am having this same issue. Any idea when the update or delete event flows will be fixed? I get the "ID is Malformed" error every time.

Re: failed to update event on google calendar from O365 calendar

I get this exact same error when I am trying to sync a deletion of a google calendar event to my O365 calendar. I can have it CREATE the event no prob, and even pass the Google Calendar event ID to sync IDs....but updating or deleting I always get "ID is Malformed"

 

Frustrating to say the least.

Re: failed to update event on google calendar from O365 calendar

Hi @Anonymous

 

I think the reason Google calendar update event is failing is because Calendar ID specified is invalid  ("TFS From MS Flow").

May I know how the value for Calendar ID was entered when creating the flow? 

1) Did you select it from the drop-down list or

2) Manually entered the value?  If manually entered, could you please edit the flow and select calendar from the drop-down and retry.

 

@Anonymous

are you trying to update Google calendar or O365 calendar ? could you provide additional details on the issue or start a new thread.

 

Thanks
