Resubmit multiple failed flow runs at once

I love the "resubmit" feature! But... wouldn't it be nice to be able to resubmit multiple Flow runs at once? Here's an example of a Flow of which one of the connections has expired:

After updating my Connection, I would like to rerun all of these failed Flows. Now I have to click the > sign, resubmit, go back to the list, remember which failed Flow I clicked last, click the next one, resubmit, etc.

 

Would be great if I could just select multiple failed Flows and click a resubmit button from right here.

Thank you for the suggestion, we now plan on adding a feature for resubmitting failed runs in bulk.

I am going through this now but some of my resubmitted items are not showing as suceeded even though they have run successfully - anyone else seen or had this?

It was a connection issued which triggered the Flow and with me being out of the office for a week they have stacked up so having to resubmit them all manually which is very time consuming and I about losing the will to live with it already - especially as they do not seem to be updating as successful - the first bunch worked but I have a load in the middle which are stuck - suggestions?

This has been a headache to resubmit and totally second everyone's sentiment on this one. Please fix/enhance this process ASAP

I completely agree with the need for the bulk resubmit option!  

 

I'm adding the below suggestions for users who need to resubmit failed Flows until a bulk operation is implemted.  I found these steps helped to reduce re-running failed Flows multiple times and avoided missing any Flows.

Option 1: Resubmit each record directly from the Run Histroy window 

Open Flow --> click "See all" in top right corner of Run History box on main page --> in top-right  corner of next page, click drop-down arrow and select "Failed runs"--> start at the top (or bottom) of the list and click on the first/last Flow record that failed --> click the "Resubmit" button at the top of the list --> move to the next Flow record and click "Resubmit" until all records have been resubmitted. 

Option 2: Open each record in a new tab

Open Flow --> click "See all" in top right corner of Run History box on main page --> in top-right  corner of next page, click drop-down arrow and select "Failed runs"--> start at the top (or bottom) of the list and on the first/last Flow record that failed --> press your mouse wheel button (to open the record in a new tab) --> Go to the next record and open it in another window (continue doing this for a batch number of your choosing) --> click on the first tab that was opened --> click the Resubmit button in the top-right corner of the window --> repeat with the next record in the next tab to the right (repeat until all open tabs have been resubmitted --> go back to the first tab that was opened, click "x" button to close the tab, leaving your mouse in the same position to close the next tab that was open --> go back to the original list of failed flows and pick up where you left off (the last record opened in a tab should be selected, just move to the next record and repeat. The good thing about this option is that you can quickly resubmit each record (each in a new tab), then quickly verify that the Flow ran successfully when closing the tabs (there will be a message in the top-left of the window that will shows "success".

 

Hopefully the workarounds above will be soon be irrelevant and not needed.

Love it!
How about adding it to the PowerShell CMDLETS?
Get-Flow -FlowName {} -Failed $true | Resubmit-Flow -BeginDate {} -EndDate {}

Looks like a few people find the same gaps with the flow

1- be able to resubmit multiple flows

2- be able to link the failed flow with the one you resubmitted otherwise it is so confusing which one went through or not

3 - Remove the fail name, maybe change from failed to resubmitted successfully 

4- Have some type of information which flow has been failed. Maybe the email address of who submitted or a print screen of the content of that flow.

Sad this is still "under review" after 1.5 years. Giant gap in flow in my opinion. Such a powerful tool with such a crappy interface for things like this.

Btw anyone needing this desperately, I highly advise you buy/use flowstudio.app It is very cheap and worth every penny for any flow power user. You can filter/bulk run (and rerun!) flows using this as well.
