How to run 1 instance of any automated cloud triggered Dektop Flow at a time

Is there a way to set up so that only 1 Desktop Flow runs at any given time? 

 

I have 3 cloud flows that all monitor their own respective dropbox folder for changes.  Upon changes they trigger a specific desktop Flow that parses a json, launches excel and cleans data via power query, then copies and pastes each tabs data in to a respective google sheet tab.  The flows break if there are more than 1 of them running at the same time.  All 3 desktop Flows reside on the same machine.

@oldedb On your trigger,
Click the 3 dots,
Now click settings.
Enable concurrency, and set it’s value to 1.
For more clarification refer this: https://flowaltdelete.ca/2020/09/28/power-automate-limit-runs-to-trigger-one-at-a-time/

 

Hope it helps!!

 

Cheers,

I have enabled that but it appears to only limit one instance at a time of that specific flow.  I have 3 different flows triggered by 3 different cloud automated triggers.  I am trying to prevent Flow A and Flow B from running at the same time.  I believe your suggestion limits Flow A from running multiple times concurrently?
