Combining Multiple Workflow together

Hi, I have more than one workflow that each start with a trigger e.g. "When a File is Created or Modified"

All of them are part of the same work flow and they depend on each other.

Is there a way that I can combine all these workflow into one?

Hi @mowafakgabal,

 

If you want to combine your four flow together, you need to go into flow 1 and add when I you do in flow 2, 3 & 4.

And there is no any other way to combine (Export, Combine, Import).

Hi @mowafakgabal,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flows?

Please share more details about your flow so we would identify if the flows could be combined to one flow.

Also you could take a try to combine the flow with more tests.

 

Best regards,

Alice

Not sure how to share the Flow, I've exported it, but I cannot attach here. I've added photo's for the flow. If you give me a place to upload the flow or an email to send them to.

Hi @mowafakgabal

 

You have three flows have the trigger "When a file is created or modified in a folder", are those trigger all for one same folder or there different folders?

Does the "Assigned to" field of three "Start an approval" actions are the same or different?

 

Overall, you could create the combine the step2, step3, step4 flow all in your step1 flow, just all the actions of step2, step3, step4 flow under the "Create file" action of your step1 flow.

 

Best regards,

Alice

Hi, 3 different folders, but each is depending on approval. When a file is created, once approved, copy to place-01. then 2nd flow, when the file is created in place-01, once approved, copy to place-02, then a 3rd flow, when the file is created in place-03, once approved, send an email with options.

Start approval action go to different approvers.

If I can combine, do I have to go into flow 1 and add when I did in flow 2, 3 & 4 or is there is aanother way to combinme (Export, Combine, Import)

Hi,

I followed your recommendaion of adding triggers into one flow as attached.

1st part of flow ran fine, but froze on 2nd part with when a file is created.
