Let tasks happen in parallel

My desktop flow task tries to open an application, and during this process anther popup appears from the application which I require to click OK before the first action can complete. So I need 2 steps to run in parallel to be able to do this as one task has not yet finished while another is required to take place. Is this possible?

Did you try to use Wait for window content or Wait for image action after the first action is : Open an application?


From my point, when you have your first action is "Open an application" and right after that you can have another action that "Wait for window" or "Wait for image", so with these actions you can recognize that the popup appears from the other application so that you can click OK button from there. 


That was my thoughts. 

Hope it can help you.

Thanks for the reply. The issue is however that within the application there is an action that includes the ticking of this box, and thus it cannot take place in sequential steps, but needs to take place in parallel. I tried your solution but unfortunately no luck.
