How can I refine this Flow?

I have got this flow working now and it doesn't give any problems but..


I wonder if there is a way to refine it?

Ideally I would like it to check every 5 minutes but as you can see from my image I would have to double up all the 10 min checks and make them 5 minute checks.

This is only a small snip of the whole as it checks 10 mins till 30mins then sends a Slack message then check again after 15 mins and sends an email.

Can anyone suggest a method or change?

Not trying to be wise, but if it ain't broke don't fix it.😉

Not applicable

Could you parameterise the "delay minutes" and call the flow from another flow that passes the appropriate number of minutes for the delay?  Or have I got the wrong end of the stick here?


But in general I agree with the "If it ain't broke" sentiment!

Continuous improvement is a thing though, we can always try to make things better.

Sounds really complicated to me, it's a shame we don't have functions like in code, so we call that function to do the check every "x" mins etc.
