To much duplication and maintenance hell.

Is there a way to create a series of steps ONCE and just reuse it for other flows? 


As most probably do you start off simple. Perhaps you add a few steps to move files from one location to another. Great, it works, so you create 20 more flows for the business. Then you figure out you can then write to a history log and even send the person providing the file an e-mail that it was sent which you test with ONE of the flows.


NOW, you have to go and add all these new steps to the 20 flows you are created. This is ridiculous, and I am sure I am missing an obvious solution to create a series of steps once and resue within my flows?
