Delay in triggering flow

I am running flow when new item gets added to SharePoint Online. Flow is very simple to send an email to user.

 

Problem - We are observing that flow instances are initiating very slowly on events. E.g. when SharePoint event occurs then after approx. 5-9 minutes flow instances are running. This is happening intermittently. Any solutions or recommendations?

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: Delay in triggering flow

Hi @PrashantKumbhar,

 

Which plan are you using? The maximum flow frequency for Plan 2 is 1 minute, however, if you are using Free plan, it will be 15 minutes. And if it is Flow for Office 365 and Flow for Dynamics 365, it will be 5 minutes.

 

Please check this doc on Pricing for more details, and check which plan are you using:

Re: Delay in triggering flow

Thank you for your responses. We are planning to get Plan 2 for flow to avoid delay...

Re: Delay in triggering flow

Mabel - Can you please clarify Microsoft's "per user" pricing?  Is that per user that has permissions to run a flow?

Hi Mabel Mao,

I'm using Office 365 plan. I hope MS recently changes the licensing. Still delay will be there (5 mints) for Officce 365 plan?

Hi @v-yamao-msft  - I don't see from that link where to see what Pla we are using. I am having a similar issue, time delays vastly vary from 1 - 20 mins. delay before the flow is triggered.

Re: Delay in triggering flow

Hi @v-yamao-msft 

 

I am running Power Automate, with flows which trigger once a SharePoint embedded Form is Submitted.

These were working without fail up until this week - with instant triggering which created an item in a SharePoint list and sent an email notification.

I am now experiencing trigger delays in excess of 6 HOURS on all of my flows.

I have an Office 365 Business Premium plan.

Can you offer any advice?  Thanks for any further responses/help.
