Get Resource Calendar Events from Office 365 Connector

Make it possible to get events from resource calendars (e.g. meeting rooms) in Office 365. Looking at the current connectors, only a few tweaks are neccessary.

 

The call in the Office 365 connector, GetCalendarTables, needs to provide an argument so we can specify the email address of the meeting room, rather than just returning the calendar ids of the current user.

 

Then (presumably) we can use the GetEventsCalendarViewV2 call to get the events for a given date range. This call requires the calendar id of the calendar to look up. So using the calendar id of the resource calendar obtained in GetCalendarTables we can then look the events.

 

Alternatively, make another method like GetEventsCalendarViewV2, but one that accepts the email of the resource calendar, rather than the calendar id specifically.

Status: Under Review

Adding @LanceDelano to see if we can offer an easy way to reverse the existing query (find open rooms vs. find all events booked to a room).

 

Thank you for your patience and clarifications,

Audrie

I was going to be yet another person who asks "Any updates on this?" but it's clear that this is a forgotten idea that's no longer being monitored.
I just wonder why they're keeping it as "under review" - this idea should just be dismissed if they're not going to do anything with it. At least we'd know and stop nagging.

Hi All,

it seems I found a method to get events from a room mailbox calendar.

Have a look at this:

Make sure that the room mailbox  is shared to the account you are using to run your flow (test1@test.com on the picture). See this article to know how to share. 

Then you will be able to just select the room mailbox calendar from the list:

Hope that helps.
