Flow Doesn't Trigger Immediately?



My Flow: Microsoft Form --> Capture Request Submit Timestamp --> Approval --> Capture Approval Timestamp --> Send Email --> Store in DB


I've seen couple of posts mentioning that the flow doesn't trigger when the response is submitted. Sometimes the flow even skipped execution for some of my repsonses. Can anyone tell me how to configure flow to execute for every response submitted? The delay in triggering this flow is giving me inaccurate "Request Submit Timestamp". Also, I am not sure how to manually run flow if for any particualar response execution is failed.




This is great. Thanks @v-micsh-msft

I have issues in microsoft flow. I have built a Flow from template: 

- Response submitted in Microsoft Form

- Send email to respondent


Last week it worked just fine, however now it seems the trigger is not activating the email. When I save my flow again, all unactivated triggers will activate and emails will be send.

However: this is an automatically flow -> it should directly trigger when a response is submitted.



same here. The average delay is of about 30-40min
