Limits to Actions per Flow

Hello, 

 

I am working on a series of flows that run a simulation for a training within my organization. In short, I have 6 flows that check inboxes for new emails, mark them as read, and then forward them to an individual based on their name in an excel row. All of this works fine. 

 

I am moving these to a solution so that I can activate them, and other elements of the Simulation with one parent Flow. I am considering consolidating all 6 separate flows into a single flow with parallel actions but I am concerned this might cause time-out issues. My understanding is that a flow may only generate 500 'actions' per run, and I am just not sure what is considered an action. For context, the flow checks the inbox every 20 seconds for the maximum amount of "Do Until" which appears to be 60. Am I likely to run into time-out issues if I create a flow that has 6 of these running parallel?

You are not correct.

 

A flow can have up to 500 actions on the edit screen. But if some actions are in loops, then those loops can run those actions hundreds of thousands of times or more.
