Can i run multiple flow?

Hi EveryOne 🙂

 

I have a flow, which populates email, attches file from oneDrive and then sends it to the person. 

And then i have another  flow which will save the same emails from "sent " folder in outlook to sharepoint. 

 

My question to this amazing community is that, is it OK to run both flows at the same time, Or it will give issues?

 

Thanks in Advance for help 🙂

 

BR,

Currently everything looks fine. I hope thats 1 email per 1 flow, not 600 emails in a single flow. Hehe :D.

 

Just check limitations for all your actions. Like send email of outlook 365 has a limit of 30 mails per minute and 10000 mails per day, which I am not sure increases with purchased license of Power Automate or not. Are you using free or purchased license?

Check limitations once of all the actions and also do test your flows with 1000 emails. If you are sure there will be 600 mails per day. Just test it with 1000. And if it runs perfectly, you will be good.

 

Saw that 30 mails per minute limit in this post: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Power-Automate/PowerApps-Office365Outlook-SendEmail-limi...

Hey @Khan321 

 

Yes, they can work simultaneously. But I see some issues here. Maybe the 1st flow isnt finished, then the second flow might give an error. Btw, what is the trigger for second flow?

 

My suggestion would be to use parent and child flows here. So, in your parent flow, you can keep the 1st flow and as the 1st flow finishes, it will call the second flow, which you can make a child flow. By, this there would be no issues I mentioned above.

 

For parent and child flows, you can only make them in a solution. Giving you some links that will help you in your approach.

@Sundeep_Malik  Thanks for your reply:)

 

Let me explain both flows 🙂

 

The first flow(Manual flow) populates and sends email

and

the second flow (Automatic flow) "When a new email arrives" in send folder.   

 

The second flow will only triggers when a new email arrives.  Will it stil give an Error?

Yup, now it looks fine. Now there will be no error.

And now no need to create parent and child flows.

The question that you had asked above, that both flows will run at same time, thats not there anymore, second flow will run after first flow ends.

 

Just the only concerning part will be, the subject filter you have given in the 2nd flow. I hope you have given it right, that it only captures the email that was made in the first flow. Rest everything looks good. 🙂

@Sundeep_Malik  Thanks again  🙂

 

Sorry have problem in explaining.  There is  one more detail 🙂

 

Flow will be sending about 600 mails so there will be sending email and saving emails at the same time.  So both flow will work at same time.  🙂 

No Issue ?

Yup that per user plan shows that you have a purchased license. So, just test your flow once, that it is able to handle everything. From my side it looks good. It should run without any problems.
