How trustful is Microsoft Flow?

I mean, Flow Contacts Services, Triggers Data and Takes Actions.. This works, in the perfect situation. But I have perfect (simple Flows) those work most of the time, but not always. 

 

For instance, on one of my Network computers, I have Windows Fax installed, and its set up that it saves new Faxes into a OneDrive for Business folder, and for that folder, I have created a flow to forward that file to a specific recipient. Again, this works perfectly, most of the time though. Sometimes, I fond new faxes received, and their files are stored in the specified folder, but Flow fails to forward them via email.

 

This is a simple example. But imagine that I am going to manipulate CDS data using Flow, and in any good data, there must be no errors. If I design a Flow to do something and it misses that thing, sometimes, it is a disaster, as you can imagine.

 

Thinking about Data Macros, they do not miss an event so why Flows misses some?

Re: How trustful is Microsoft Flow?

Hi Yahya,

 

When the flow failed to forward them via email, could you please help check the file size? I’m afraid there is a file size limitation when sending email using flow. And what error messages did you get when the flow failed?

 

I have seen a documentation about Troubleshooting a flow, please check it at here:
https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/fix-flow-failures/

 

When a flow failed, we could check the error message and try to find out a solution for the error. We could also re-run the flow by clicking the Resubmit button to get the exact same data.

 

Anytime you got issues when working with Microsoft Flow, please feel free post your issue at here. We are always ready to help.

 

 

Best regards,
Mabel Mao
