Create Event

Overview

The Create Event activity uses the Microsoft Graph CreateEvent API to create a new event in a specified calendar (Calendar).

When creating your event, you specify the date and time (Start Time, End Time, and Time Zone) and the content that you want to include (Body and Subject). Additionally, you have the option to assign this event a category from your specified calendar (Categories).

After creating the event, the activity outputs an Event object that you can use as an input variable in subsequent activities (e.g., Add Attendee, Add Location, etc.).

How it works

The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example how the activity works from design time (i.e., the activity dependencies and input/output properties) to run time.

  1. Complete the Setup steps.
  2. Add the Microsoft Office 365 Scope activity to your project.
  3. (Optional) Add an activity or run an external process that outputs a Calendar object (e.g., Get Calendars).
  4. Add the Create Event activity inside the Microsoft Teams Scope activity.
  5. Enter values for the Event Content and Event Scheduling properties.
  6. Create and enter a Event variable for the Output property.
  7. Run the activity.
    • Your input property values are sent to the CreateEvent API.
    • The API returns the Event value to your output property variable.
