Is there a way to exceed the 8 level rule when creating a workflow

Is there any way to exceed the 8 level rule when creating a workflow? 


I've built an extensive approval workflow that exceeds the 8 levels. I have a basic plan but was wondering if I can surpass that 8 level if I purchase or upgrade my plan. What are my options? Also, how can I go about requesting one-on-one personal help with power automate?


Thanks in advance!

There is no way, even with a premium license to exceed the nesting limit.  That said, you can usually redesign your Flow to work around this issue.  Here is a link to a post that discusses this issue.

Regarding one on one help - that type of thing is almost always a paid service and this forum can't be used to offer services of that type.  



If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.

Thank you @ScottShearer. I will take a look at this link and hope it solves my nesting limit issue.
