Flow Friday: Sync selected Calendar items between calendars

The other day I thought I would make myself use Microsoft Flow more… the best way I could think of was to force my self to write a series of blog posts every week… that should work 🙂

My first post is a description on how to keep your partner happy (or at least happier) when you need to work late.

I keep two calendar, one personal and one for work, where I share my personal calendar with my wife in order for her to know what I am up to. When I need to work late or have an event at work I would like her to know (since I often forget to tell her). This flow adds all events in my work calendar that end after 17.00 to my personal calendar and it also sends an invite to my wife.

We start with the trigger that triggers on all new events. Then we converts the time to Swedish Time Zone (1) and then we check if the event “Show As” field is “Busy” (2)

If the event is not busy we simply terminate the flow, if it is Busy we first validate that End Time is later than 17.25 (3) and if it is we create a new event in personal calendar with the same settings where I invite my wife as an optional attendee (4).

 

Automation is King!!
