Do flows overlap each other? or do they queue?

I have a question regarding basic Flow functionality 🙂


I am currently designing a Flow where I refer to a Sharepoint List to retrieve a unique number then increment that number for the next flow run. I am concerned of the possibility that consecutive Flow runs would retrieve the same value (the increment Action would not be fast enough for the next run). Of course, this would not be a concern if the Flows do queue instead of run simultaneously


Thanks 🙂

Hi @PaulCarl,


The flow would overlap each other and will not queue.


If you want the flow to run queue,I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.


If you would like the flow to run queue in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:


Best regards,
