Hi

I've got the following code, which creates an appointment from our web based system in Outlook Calendar. But, the location just shows the address as text and not as a configured location. Can someone help in what I've done wrong?

                        $app_location = [
                            'displayName'  => $location,
                            'locationType' => 'Default',
                            'address' => [
                                'street'          => $property->AddressLn1,
                                'city'            => $property->AddressLn2,
                                'state'           => $property->AddressTown,
                                'countryOrRegion' => $property->AddressCounty,
                                'postalCode'      => $property->PostCode,
                            ],
                            'coordinates' => [
                                'latitude'  => $property->Latitude,
                                'longitude' => $property->Longitude,
                            ]
                        ];
                        $locations = [
                            'displayName'   => $location,
                            'address' => [
                                'street'          => $property->AddressLn1,
                                'city'            => $property->AddressLn2,
                                'state'           => $property->AddressTown,
                                'countryOrRegion' => $property->AddressCounty,
                                'postalCode'      => $property->PostCode,
                            ],
                            'coordinates' => [
                                'latitude'  => $property->Latitude,
                                'longitude' => $property->Longitude,
                            ],
                        ];
                        $newEvent = [
                            'subject'                    => $event_subject,
                            'isReminderOn'               => $isReminderOn,
                            'reminderMinutesBeforeStart' => $reminderMinutesBeforeStart,
                            'isAllDay'                   => $isAllDay,
                            'showAs'                     => $showAs,
                            'sensitivity'                => $sensitivity,
                            'body'                       => [
                                'content' => $notes,
                                'contentType' => 'text'
                            ],
                            'start' => [
                                'dateTime' => $app_start_date,
                                'timeZone' => $viewData['userTimeZone']
                            ],
                            'end' => [
                                'dateTime' => $app_end_date,
                                'timeZone' => $viewData['userTimeZone']
                            ],
                            'attendees'     => $attendees,
                            'location'      => [$app_location],
                            'locations'     => [$locations],
                            'transactionId' => $appointment_id,
                        ];

Thanks for any help in advance.

    Thank you for reaching out.

    If you're organizing an event that involves a meeting location:

    Set the location property of the event accordingly.
    Set the optional locationEmailAddress property if the meeting location has an email address.
    Additionally, if the meeting location has been set up as a resource, or if the event involves some equipment that has been set up as a resource:

    Invite the resource as an attendee.
    Set the attendee type property as resource.
    Set the attendee emailAddress as the resource email address.

    Sample code for creating an event that occurs in multiple locations (Javascript)

     const options = {
         authProvider,
        };
    
        const client = Client.init(options);
    
        const event = {
          subject: 'Plan summer company picnic',
          body: {
            contentType: 'HTML',
            content: 'Let\'s kick-start this event planning!'
          },
          start: {
              dateTime: '2017-08-30T11:00:00',
              timeZone: 'Pacific Standard Time'
          },
          end: {
              dateTime: '2017-08-30T12:00:00',
              timeZone: 'Pacific Standard Time'
          },
          attendees: [
            {
              emailAddress: {
                address: 'DanaS@contoso.onmicrosoft.com',
                name: 'Dana Swope'
              },
              type: 'Required'
            },
            {
              emailAddress: {
                address: 'AlexW@contoso.onmicrosoft.com',
                name: 'Alex Wilber'
              },
              type: 'Required'
            }
          ],
          location: {
            displayName: 'Conf Room 3; Fourth Coffee; Home Office',
            locationType: 'Default'
          },
          locations: [
            {
              displayName: 'Conf Room 3'
            },
            {
              displayName: 'Fourth Coffee',
              address: {
                street: '4567 Main St',
                city: 'Redmond',
                state: 'WA',
                countryOrRegion: 'US',
                postalCode: '32008'
              },
              coordinates: {
                latitude: 47.672,
                longitude: -102.103
              }
            },
            {
              displayName: 'Home Office'
            }
          ],
          allowNewTimeProposals: true
        };
    
        await client.api('/me/events')
         .post(event);
    

    Thanks
