Any other wya I can trigger a flow when sharepoint list item is created/changed

I have a working workflow that checks if a certain sharepoint list has a new item or modified item. My issue is it detects it too late for my liking. 

 

Our intended use for this workflow is:

  • We use Nintex form for the sharepoint list.
  • After creating, nintex workflows will run that they can only do (takes around 30 seconds more or less)
  • Microsoft flow will run supposedly to send an HTML email that nintex workflow cannot do on its own and for other reasons as well

Few months ago, when we launched this, flow would detect it really fast less than 5minutes, now it takes around 8 minutes to 10 minutes before it would detect something is new or changed in the list.

 

I plan to change it so the Microsoft flow runs as soon as the nintex workflows are done working. Is it possible to do so?

Is this a SharePoint Online List being used? If so, it should trigger the Flow nearly instantaneously. Have you performed tests of the Flow to see where the holdup within your Flow is occurring? 

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you.

I deleted all the items in the sharepoint list, and it did indeed become faster. The hangup is the time the trigger gets "triggered". I initially thought it was due to the 5-minute check by Microsoft Flow API, so I am not really sure.
