Hardware Requirements

Hi Team, 

 

I noticed that complex flows with more than 50 steps are so slowly opening. 

Literally, I can not do anything when developing a flow for a few minutes after opening.

 

My machine has 8GB RAM and Core i5 CPU. I know, this is not sufficient to be recognised a developer machine, but flow and powerapps are positioning as power user tool and not as developer tools)

 

Are there some official recommendations for the developer machine to be the most productive with building flows/powerapps?

 

Cheers, 

Pavel

Hi @Anonymous,

 

I could not find any official recommendations about Hardware Requirements of Microsoft Flow in computer, I think the issue that you mentioned is not related to hardware of your machine.

 

Just as you said, Microsoft Flow and PowerApps are positioning as power user tool and not as developer tools, if you want to use Microsoft Flow on your machine, you just need a modern browser (such as, Chrome, Edge and IE) on your side.

 

If your flow opens slowly, please check if your Network is in a good condition. Sometimes, the Network state would take effect on the issue that you mentioned. Also please consider take a try to clear cache of your browser and try your flow again. In addition, there are also some limits in Microsoft Flow, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/limits-and-config

 

Different Flow plans would take effect on building flows/powerapps productively, please consider take a try to upgrade your Microsoft Flow to Flow Plans 2. More details about different plans of Microsoft Flow, please check the following article:

Best regards,

Kris

Hi @v-xida-msft,

 

Thank you for your response, I appreciate it.

 

I just noticed that when I open flow, the machine resources like CPU and RAM consumption significantly increase and I cannot do with the flow anything for a minute or two while I guess the flow schema is loading.

 

However, this is still suitable if just to wait for a few minutes.

 

Regards,

Pavel
