Event Scheduling
  • End Time - The end time for the event. This field supports only DateTime variables.

    Note:
    • Your DateTime values must be formatted as MM/DD/YYYY Hour:Minute:Seconds (e.g., 10/31/2019 12:00:00).
    • The DateTime format is auto-corrected if you enter enough details. For example, if you enter 10/31/19 3pm it auto-corrects to 10/31/2019 15:00:00.
  • TimeZone - The time zone in which the Start Time and End Time are interpreted. The default value is Your system's time zone (not displayed). Enter a valid String (e.g., "Pacific Standard Time"). This property supports String variables and string formatted values.
Input
  • Account - (Optional) The email address with which to interact. This may include any shared mailbox to which the current user has access rights. If left blank, the current user's account is assumed. This property supports String variables and string formatted values.
    Note: Account field is mandatory for ApplicationIdAndSecret and ApplicationIdAndCertificate authentication types.
  • Event - The event to modify. This field supports only Event variables. Enter the output property variable from the Search Events activity (Events) and specify the item in the array that you want to use (e.g., myEvents(0)).
Misc
  • Private - If selected, the values of variables and arguments are no longer logged at Verbose level. This field supports Boolean values.
Options
  • Categories - The categories associated with the event. This field supports only String[] variables. Your value must match a name from your specified Calendar list of categories (see example image below). To enter one category, include it between { } and declare it with " " (e.g., {"Purple category"}). To enter multiple categories, include all between { }, declare each with " ", and separate each by a comma (e.g., {"A CustomCategory", "Purple category"}).


  • Is All Day - If selected, the event is scheduled for the entire day. If selected, the values that you enter in the Start Time and End Time properties are overwritten. Entering values in the Start Time and End Time properties is required even when you select this property. This field supports Boolean values.
  • Show As - The user's availability during the event. Select one of the six options: Unknown, Free, Tentative, Busy, Oof or WorkingElsewhere. The default value is Free.
