How to check if child flow is running or available?

Hi All,


Please help. I have a child flow that gets called by multiple other flows, is there a way for other flows to first check if the child flow is available before calling it?


I would like for my flows to be able to first check and if child flow is busy, they should queue up and wait until the child flow is available again.


Thanks in advance

Hi @Senzo ,


I am afraid that such a function does not seem to be supported in Power Automate. The open interface allows us to call this Flow, but it seems impossible to check the status of this Flow in advance.
