"Apply to each" not applying to each

I have a flow that is set up on a recurrence to find and email anyone in a list that starts in 2 days. It is working to find the right dates; the flow results show it found three. But for some reason, it is only sending to the first person in the list.  Ideas?

@Anonymous What is the trigger for this flow (assuming daily recurrence)? I would suggest (potentially based on what you currently have) that you remove the delay and second email, so the loop only has the first email. Then add a parallel branch which returns items that are 23 days past the start date (equivalent of waiting 25 days) and send them the second email.

 

See example flow below.

Recurrence is set to run daily at whatever time you specify.

Add the first Get items, then click on Add a parallel branch and add the second Get items.

Then rename each of the Get items so you know which one does what.

For Get items 2 days from now, enter the following expression into the Filter Query.

StartDate eq '@{addDays(utcNow(), 2, 'yyyy-MM-dd')}'

For Get items 23 days ago, enter the following expression into the Filter Query.

StartDate eq '@{addDays(utcNow(), -23, 'yyyy-MM-dd')}'

Then, for each branch, Send an email to each item returned.

Because an error occurs on the second iteration.

Welcome to my web site.

Thanks Victorlvanidze. Still learning Power Automate. Can you share how you know an error occurs? And how I may be able to fix? I appreciate any wisdom!

Are you able to show everything you have within the Apply to each and what you put inside each of the actions (design view). I can see that the Apply to each has been running for 3 hours already, so maybe some sort of endless loop, delay, etc. but hard to tell.

 

I don't see any errors as the Next failed link is disabled indicating that no error has occurred yet. Can you try clicking on the Next link to see what you get?

Hi grantjenkins,

Thanks for writing. I think I figured it out -- and your comment makes me believe I may be on to something, but would love your thoughts. Inside the "apply to each" I have two steps -- send an email, then delay 25 days and send a second email. It worked during testing, but I only ever had item found at a time. I believe it's hung up on the 1st waiting until that 25 day is sent, then it will go onto the next item it found? Does that sound right? You are correct that there is no error or next failed. 

 

I read about concurrency over the weekend and checked that. Would that allow it to send the first email to all items it finds without waiting for that first loop to finish?

Appreciate any thoughts!

Yes the delay will pause all other items aswell since the loop does 1 at the time, unless you turn on concurrency. If concurrency is on you will have 50 loops waiting at the same time (50 is max). Just be careful, concurrency and variables doesnt work together correctly (In my case) if thats something you are using. 

Thanks StretchFredrik. Appreciate the confirmation of the role of concurrency! Learning slowly.....
