Creating a flow to send and email to each employee asking them to respond

I have a flow that retrieves records from an SQL table in order to send an email to each employee requesting their confirmation that they are actually working.  The flow is set to trigger at a specific time each day, gets the rows from the SQL table then, using "Apply to each", sends an email with options.  The problem is that it appears to be waiting for the response to the first email before sending the next email.  Any suggestions?

Re: Creating a flow to send and email to each employee asking them to respond

Hi @Kgrange,

 

Yes, the flow won’t move on to the next action until the response is given. Cause flow will do the actions under the Condition according to the response. If it is Yes, do the actions under Yes branch, if it is No, do the actions under No branch.

 

So it is a default behavior for flow. Please ask the receiver to choose a choice so that the flow can move on to the next actions.
