Retrigger flow at point of failure option??

It would be really great to have the option to be able to retrigger a flow at the point of failure. For example, we had approvals completed and the rest of the flow failed but don't want to resubmit the entire thing for approvals again....

Possibly do something similar to SQL Server Agent "start at step" !! Please help implement asap

Perhaps you can work in a "Do Until" loop, or set a "configure run after" for a failure?  Not quite sure what you are needing to do.  Maybe  you can share some of your flow and we can bantor a bit and get it to do what you want!

Re: Retrigger flow at point of failure option??

Thanks! Some of my flows failed after the approvals were already completed and I need to run the rest of the flow starting at the point of failure (don't want to retrigger the approval piece). The failure isn't actually part of the flow, it was a connection bug that has since been resolved Smiley Sad

Re: Retrigger flow at point of failure option??



Ok, i totally understand this now.  You have a bunch of items that went through part of an approval, and the flow failed do to a MS issue.  This is a big problem to date.  It is a huge issue when the underlying framework of Flow fails.  As you know, its painstaking to go through everything to be sure flows complete, and data is complete and intact.  I am lucky I only have a handful of users, or what you are doing would take me so much time.  It seems there are outages of some degree about once a month that puts everything in a lurch until investigation can be done with everything to be sure data is complete.


Good luck!
