Run all flows at specified time

Hello all - I have about 40 flows that are based on Microsoft PowerBI Alerts. The alerts send an email to the users impacted. However, I want to run all the flows at a specific time, like 6 am CST. Right now they are all staggered. Is there a way I can say run all my flows at 6 am? I saw one option would be to add recurrence inside each flow but I'm hoping to avoid manually updating 40 flows...

 

Thanks

@RustyNails:

 

I don't see any way around updating all of your Flows.  The most obvious way to approach this is, as you said, using a recurrence trigger and scheduling when the Flows run inside of that trigger.

 

Alternatively, you could create a single Flow that runs on a recurrence trigger that calls all of your other Flows.  That way, you won't need to update all Flows if you want to change when they run.  Here is a link to a blog post that discusses nested Flows.
