e-mail with options waits for response before sending next

(sorry for the weird looking subject of this post ...)

 

I have built a Flow that ffirst gets items from Sharepoint list with a date based Filter Query, then sends an e-mail with options.

The issue is:

if the Filter Query matches more than one item (and it always does), then the first e-mail is being sent, and then the Flow waits until the recipient has clicked one of the options buttons, before the second e-mail is being sent. 

This meaning, that if a run of the flow is supposed to send five e-mails (one for every item fetched), and the recipients do not respond until 5 days, the Flow takes 25 days to run, which makes no sense.

Is this expected behaviour? And is there a workaround?

 

This is the Flow

Your send an email should be inside an Apply to each loop if get items retrieves more than one entry.  Then you need to change the settings on the Apply to each loop to enable Concurrency and set the number of parallel actions you want to run at a time.  The maximum is 50.

Thanks! I knew there must be a setting somewhere. It all works perfectly now.
