Is there a way to make the flow wait at the bottom of 2 parallel branches before proceeding?

Hi,

 

Is there a way to make the flow wait at the bottom of 2 parallel branches (for each branch to finish) before proceeding?

 

Thank you.

 

Regards,

 

Daniel

No It wont. It will wait for both approvals to be completed and only then proceed with the Get Properties.  Please refer following article.. https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/parallel-actions/

Using Scope, you can group multiple actions together and anything declared within that scope remains accessible to that scope only. This is like writing a Private Method in the code and putting all code inside that. Practically, kind of a grouping that you can collapse and make workflow readable instead of long tower of actions.

Can you upload flow design? If you apply parallel branches logic, flow wont proceed until all branches are complete...

 

Your design should look like this. Use Scope so that you can keep all actions together.

Hi @PrasadAthalye ,

 

Here's what I'm trying to accomplish:

 

Essentially two parallel approvals. I want the 'get file properties' action to go ahead once both approvals are completed. I'm concerned that it will go ahead if one approver approves and not wait for the other.

I'm also mindful of the nesting limit of 8. I on 5 at the moment so I'm ok for now. I'm just worried scopes will push me over the limit

 

Thank you for your help.

Hi @PrasadAthalye ,

 

What is the purpose of the scope action?
