Flow run timed out. Please try again

If I Delay Until thirty minutes or so ahead, I get this error before the delay elapses.


Flow run timed out. Please try again.


Otherwise, the Flow designer still shows the Delay Until Action with it's little orange clock-like icon suggesting it is waiting, still.


I'm going to leave everything alone for a few more minutes to see if this is another red (no pun intended) herring. I seem to recall other cases like this that i did not expect to see the subsequent email appear.


In any case, what is the documented time out threshold for Delay Until?

Re: Flow run timed out. Please try again

Hi @mcorning,


I think the documentation should be based on the following articles:

Get started with the delay and delay-until actions

The article under the official learning library:

Run flows on a schedule

There is not so much information regarding the time out, please consider to submit an idea on this, to have the document updated the details.

By the way, could you please share some details (a screenshot is much better) regarding the message "Flow run timed out. Please try again."?
