Create Outlook Calendar Event

Jump to solution

Hi, Im just trying to create a simple vacation approval request here. 

Item gets created in SharePoint list with dates for leave

item get sent for approval for manager

if approved, the dates are entered into SharePoint leave calendar and the persons own outlook 365 calendar.

Now all that works fine, however the last step - add event into the persons (who created the item) OWN outlook calendar if approved.

Is this possible?, I am using Nintex workflow and forms online and SharePoint online. I do not see how this action is done?. I have added in the relevant actions for the exchange online create event option but that's where I am stuck.

  

any help would be great.

Go to Nintex store -> User interaction and subscribe to Exchange online actions.  

Then you get an action called "Exchange online create calendar item". To use this action you need a service account which has impersonate user rights in Exchange online.

The help for the action: https://help.nintex.com/en-US/O365/Default.htm#cshid=NL9DDEF5B1CAAE4F01A755C5F09F0C8822
