Timeout - approval emails

Wondering if there is a timeout for approval emails? I have some emails that went 2 months before being approved or rejected and the flow failed as a result. When the approver selected approved they received "an error occured.." and the flow failed.

 

If it is approved in a timely manner, no issues at all with the flow.

thanks.

Hi mat_it_guy,

 

Please take this documentation on Limits and configuration in Microsoft Flow for a reference:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/limits-and-config

 

Run duration of flow is 30 days, includes workflows with pending steps like approvals. After 30 days the pending steps will time out.

Is there anything i can add to the flow to sort of reset the 30 days automatically once it has expired?

Old thread but under the approval settings you can configure the timeout period and change the retry policy.
