Hi @PradeepSingh,


Can you please test if this is only happening to this one specific flow by creating a new simple one? Because that I can not reproduce your issue with my existing flows. Also, take a screenshot of the problematic flow.

So, you're building a flow with a 7 step approval process? How many actions do you have in your flow? Flow officially supports 250 actions, but many people, including myself, find there are performance issues in the browser with a couple dozen. If this is the case for you, general suggestions include breaking the flow into multiple flows, or redesigning it to have fewer actions.

I am using around 6 action in one approval so it will be around 40 actions.didnt clearly understand your point breaking flow into per my understanding rather than writing whole process in one flow create two flow in one 3 approver and in other 4 approval so now  witting two flows for approval process.tried this but problem is can break the flow into two section as both will be triggered annoyonmously any one ahead and behind
