How do I make a zap that deletes a google calendar invite when i delete it from Outlook?

Hi @shubhabala! It’s not currently possible to trigger a Zap from a deleted even in Outlook, sorry about that! We’re not able to build the action because it’s not allowed using Microsoft’s API (a piece of code that allows other apps to talk to Outlook).
One workaround would be to first add change the subject of an event in Outlook to ‘Deleted’ and delete it later. You could then trigger a Zap from an Updated event and add a filter to the Zap that only continues if the subject of the event is ‘Deleted’. You’d need to wait a few minutes before then deleting the event (how long depends on which Zapier plan you have - between 1 and 15 minutes), so this isn’t an ideal solution, sorry about that!
