can you put parts of a flow set on pause (interrupt)

If you have a flow that is very long, can you put parts on pause so that it can skip?

Hi @frixel ,


As far as I know, the features related to your needs may be the following.

  • Configure Terminate action and set Status to Cancelled. Configure the Condition and if the set conditions are met, cancel the flow to continue execution.
  • Add multiple parallel branches, with the setting of Condition, only perform the actions in the partial branches.
  • Set Configure run after to execute the current action only when the previous action is skipped.


These are some feature that is currently available. If you need other features to configure your Flow, you could consider submitting your idea in Flow Idea forum to allow more features to be supported by MS Flow, it might be considered for future Releases:

What about this situation:


I run a flow that updates an excel row,  then adds a number of rows to a table in teh same sheet.  After that it than gets the excel file and sends it as email.


I have found that the add rows are often not complete and the attached file to the email is missing the  last few.  If I go to the raw file in onedrive all teh rows are there so I am assuming the file is being grabbed before it is complete even though the flow says complete.  Any ideas.


I put an update a sharepoint list in between to see if that solved the issue but it is now hit and miss


There is a delay action, that might help?
