Creating multiple contacts in Dynamics from one Formstack Form

Hi, I'm very new to Power automate but enjoying playing around with it. I've theoretically worked out a way to use Power automate to do what I want, but it seems like it will be a very long and arduous to set it up and wanted to check if there's an easier solution out there.

* I have one Formstack form to collect contact details of staff from external partner orgs. One manager can register their whole team, which could be up to 50+ people using a radio button "do you want to register another person" to navigate to additional fields.
* On submission I want to check for duplicates in Dynamics, update record if a duplicate exists or create a new contact if it doesn't.
* I am using the CDS (legacy) connector.

My current solution:
* I have set up this flow (see below pics) for 1 contact, currently mapped to the manager's contact fields. I adapted this flow from a blog post, so not sure if this is the best way.
* To run the same process for the remaining potential 50+ contacts, do I have to create 50+ parallel flows to map to the different fields for each person in the form e.g. team member 1 email, team member 2 email etc?

Very happy to accept any suggestions. Thanks in advance!
