Trigger to launch "Automated cloud flow" when the content of an event in the Office 365 Outlook calendar is updated.
The information of updated events can be used to send notification e-mails or to record them in a file, for example.
There is "When an event is added, updated or deleted", but there is no difference in functionality for adding events.
It is recommended that you use these different functions depending on whether you want to manage events in a single flow or separate flows for different operations.
