Event Connector not respecting minimum

OK. I am trying to pull events from a calendar that have the words "Registration Period". I give the minimum date as utcnow(). When I test my flow, it is pulling events from April. Why would it do that and not respect the utcnow()? Am I doing something incorrectly? Also, how do I get it to only pull entries that have both Registration and Period in them? Thank you for your time!

Hi @ellean,

 

The List the events on a calendar action would return events notify the Start Date or End Date is in the range of Min Time and Max Time.

As a workaround, you could set a Filter array action under the List event action to filter out events that Start time is greater or equals to utcNow():Annotation 2020-06-12 133343.jpg

Hello @ellean 

 

I just tested this on my own Google mail calendar and it worked perfectly! Try to recreate the action.

Kind regards, John

Screenshot (7).pngI don't understand what I am doing wrong. I recreated the flow as you suggested, and still it isn't working right. Did I set up my connector wrong @JohnAageAnderse?

At this point, the only thing I can think of is if the end-time is in the Min-Max timeframe, then it is included. For instance, I am using an academic calendar and the registration fee event is from 4-11 to 6-15, and since the date is 6-11 the  event shows up in my query. Though if the event was looking for both Registration and Period as I specify, that shouldn't factor in. Any thoughts, anyone?

Hello @ellean 

 

I have 3 events in my calendar:

"Registration for the event", 09.06.2020 - 04.07.2020

"Registration start period", 11.06.2020

"Registration period", 12.06.2020

 

Using your criteria as Min = utcNow(), Search query = Registration period

I get only the last event.

Do you get the first event also? If yes, does the subject then contain "registration period"?

Kind regards, John
