Updating Appointments in Outlook using Web Request

Hi everyone,

 

I have this workflow that will run when a maintenance was created in the calendar app in sharepoint. I successfully sync it to my outlook calendar using a Create Appointment action. But I encounter some issues when updating or modifying the schedule of the maintenance it updates in the sharepoint calendar but not on the Outlook calendar. I can create another workflow that will run when the maintenance is modified but using the Create Appointment action will only create another appointment so there is a redundancy of appointments. For example:

 

I created a maintenance that is scheduled

April 1, 2016

1:00 PM to 3:00 PM

 

It will be sync in the Outlook Calendar

April 1, 2016

1:00 PM to 3:00 PM

 

But when I modified the maintenance in the SharePoint Calendar it will not sync in the Outlook Calendar.

 

Modified Maintenance in SharePoint Calendar

April 1, 2016

5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

 

Outlook Calendar did not sync

April 1, 2016

1:00 PM to 3:00 PM

 

Is the Web Request action is the right one to use here? But I don't have enough knowledge or experience in using XML
