activate/ deactivate actions in flows

Could be useful for not to delete an action included into a flow branch.


Also for isolate possible failing actions for having the following actions in that branch to get running.

 I just came here to post this same idea.


This would be so useful for me to simply disable a bunch of flow actions to test just a part of it.


Pretty please, Microsoft.

Until we get this, I just had a great idea.


I create a Scope on a parallel branch for the actions I dont want to run and set that scope to "Run after" a previous item fails or times out. That ensure it doesnt get run.  Now I can just run the actions I want to test on another branch.

Agree - lot of time wasted trying to modify a flow.
