Time limit on a desktop flow

Is it possible to set a time limit on a desktop flow? I have about 30 automations, some quite lengthy, if for what ever reason it gets "stuck" everythign is held up til I clear it. 


Is it possible to set a max time limit on a flow? I tried doing this from the Parent flow in the cloud but it doesnt kill the process after the time limit set


Any advice would be appreciated.

If it reaches a high duration due too looping through data, I'm pretty sure you can do the following:

Timestamp at the beginning of the flow, add 30 minutes to that datetime variable, then timestamp each loop round, and check if the timestamp of the loop round is greater than the beginning+30mins datetime.
