How to create a Teams Invite using Power Automate?


In this blog, we will learn how we can create a Teams Invite using Power Automate. So, Let’s get started!

Business Requirement:

When a SharePoint List Item is created, we want to create a Microsoft Teams Invite with the help of Power Automate! We have a list structure with the following list schema. Now, let’s start building the flow.

Step 1:

Add a Trigger – “When an item is created”. Provide Site address and URL.

Step 2:

Initialize two variables with the type String and Array.

Step 3:

Create Attendees array using the following JSON structure. Here, we need to provide “AttendeesDisplayName” and “Attendees Email”. This will automatically add Apply to each loop.
  "type": "required",  
  "emailAddress": {  
   "name": "@{items('Apply_to_each')?['DisplayName']}",  
   "address": "@{items('Apply_to_each')?['Email']}"  

Step 4:

Set Meeting Body with the following structure.
  "subject": "@{triggerOutputs()?['body/Title']}",  
  "body": {  
   "contentType": "HTML",  
   "content": "@{triggerOutputs()?['body/Description']}"  
  "start": {  
   "dateTime": "@{triggerOutputs()?['body/StartDate']}",  
 "timeZone": "UTC"  
  "end": {  
   "dateTime": "@{triggerOutputs()?['body/EndDate']}",  
   "timeZone": "UTC"  
  "location": {  
   "displayName": "Online"  
 "attendees": @{variables('vAttendees')} ,  
  "isOnlineMeeting": true,  
  "onlineMeetingProvider": "teamsForBusiness"  

Step 5:

Add an action – “Invoke an HTTP request”
Add Method as “POST”
Add URL of the request, Headers, and pass “MeetingBody” for the body of the request.

Click on ellipses and select - "Add new connection"

Provide Base Resource URL and Azure AD Resource URI for Microsoft Graph.

Step 6:

Now, let’s save & test the flow.

Flow ran successfully.

Teams invite has been generated successfully.


This is how we can simply create Power Automate flow to create Teams Meeting invite! Happy Power Apping!
