How does CalendarHero work with Microsoft Flow
Microsoft Flow (https://flow.microsoft.com) allows CalendarHero customer to expand CalendarHero’s skills externally without “coding”. MS Flow connects into 50+ additional vendor’s application to query of trigger a change.
Connecting Microsoft Flow to CalendarHero involves configuration of both a Microsoft Flow “flow” and a CalendarHero “integration”.
- Create a new integration on CalendarHero. Click “Add+” to begin adding a new integration. - As an individual user: https://app.calendarhero.com/settings/integrations- As a corporate admin (for all users): https://app.calendarhero.com/org/apps/integrations
- Name your new integration. This name will be used by users to trigger this flow. Eg. “run french translation for hello”
- Select the “Microsoft Flow” type
Add Parameters. Parameters can be questions that ask the user, or can be Fixed values. Either way, each parameter’s variable will hold a value that will be sent to MS Flow.
We now need to leave CalendarHero and go to MS Flow and create a new flow to get the rest of the required information for our CalendarHero integration. Open up a new browser while not closing the CalendarHero tab. Navigate to https://flow.microsoft.com/. Create a new flow.
The trigger that starts this flow MUST be an inbound HTTP request. Search for “Request”. That trigger will not initially have an HTTP POST URL value nor a Request Body JSON Schema value. The POST URL will be generated once you save this flow, so for now, we will wait to get this value.
