Can we disable/deactive an action

I am modifying our flow, but i need to disable/deactivate some of the current actions as i do not need them right now, but i might need them in the future.. so is there a way to disable/de-active some actions?

You can put them inside a condition block, and just put in a condition which says if 1 = 2 (which it never will)

Hello @johnjohn123 

Depending on the actions, you can use "static result", which is in preview. Basically, you add static values to output of the action, so the result is always the same. Have a look at this post: Just 3 clicks to disable an action in Power Automate (


Have a look at this sample: Solved: Static Result option in action settings? - Power Platform Community (





Hope it helps!

Surely you want those actions on the "Yes" side! 😉

I have a solution for this as well using the "Configure Run After" settings on actions.
