All Day Event in a SharePoint Calendar is not recognized as a legit column in Flows

I am trying to copy data from one SharePoint Calendar to another but for some reason it is not recognizing the default All Day Event column in the calendar. Looking for some solution I found a work around using "Send an HTTP request to SharePoint", but infortunately its not working as well. Now rather than moving the complete Calendar item I am trying to move the value of the default All Day Event (while pulling up the XML structure it states that its column name is fAllDayEvent) to another string column (AllDay) and vice versa, in the same calendar (to test if this works). But I am facing a lot of issues. I have attached the screenshot below for reference:

But it gives me the following as an output instead:

Can somebody please guide me with this issue.

 

I can provide more details if needed.

Hi @NitinSarad ,

 

Do you want to sync SharePoint Calendar events from one calendar1 to calender2, including All day events?

 

I have made the following flow with action Send an HTTP request for your reference.

 

Add the trigger When an item is created on TestCalendar.

 

Initialize two String variables, Test1 and Test2.

 

As SharePoint event trigger doesn’t have a dynamic content to check if the event is an All day event, so we need to add a Condition to check it.

 

Input the following code in the condition:

 

equals(formatDateTime(triggerBody()?['EventDate'],'HH:mm:ss'),'00:00:00')

is equal to

True

 

 

equals(formatDateTime(triggerBody()?['EndDate'],'HH:mm:ss'),'23:59:00')

is equal to

True

 

 

If the new event meets the condition, then it is an All day event, under If yes branch, add action Set variables with the following code:

Test1:

formatDateTime(triggerBody()?['EventDate'],'yyyy-MM-dd')

Test2:

formatDateTime(triggerBody()?['EndDate'],'yyyy-MM-dd')

Add action Send an HTTP request to SharePoint. Please make sure is configured likes below:

 

{

"__metadata": {

"type" : "SP.Data.TestCalendar2ListItem"},

"fAllDayEvent" : "True",

"EventDate" :”@variables(‘Test1’)”

"EndDate" :"@variables(‘Test2’)"

}

 

 

Under if no branch, add action Create item to add the event to TestCalendar2.

I had this same issue, and ended up realizing that classic SharePoint calendar Start Time and End Time fields are not able to be switched to Date Only fields. If you create a modern SharePoint list and add a Calendar View to that list, those new start and end date fields will not need to have 'all day event' recognized and will display properly on the calendar without showing times.
