Trigger not running on SP Create/Modify

I have a flow that starts whenever a Sharepoint list item is created or modified. This list is updated quite frequently via a PowerApp. 


The issue I'm running into, is that the flow doesn't start now. I'm not sure if its because it is getting bombarded with multiple requests in such a short time that it is causing an error or what.

The list has quite a few columns, and some of those columns are being changed just by opening the record within the app (this keep multiple users from editing the same record at the same time).


I have noticed that if I turn the flow off for a few minutes, then turn it back on it will grab ~15-20 runs and complete them. Then it will stop responding again. The flow doesn't report any problems, nor does it give an error.


Has anyone experienced this before?

Hey Mate @NathanFra 


A Flow may take a number of minutes to start after an item has been updated - You find your Flow recurrence by click on ellipses (...) > Peek Code.




Please note - the if there are more Flow trigger they will be simply queued up.
