Managing multiple machines



We built a flow that triggers when an email arrives, downloads the attachments to a machine (using the file system action) and then processes them in power automate desktop (using the cloud action run UI flow). 


We plan on adding more capacity to this flow by multiplying the number of machines (flows can already work concurrently and the desktop part is the longest by far).


By using multiple machines and putting them into a machine group, we could easily dispatch our flow runs across many computers and scale to our needs. However, when we download the attachment using "file system" action we have to specify a gateway (dispatch isn't automatical and there are no gateway groups).


Are there any ways to scale our flow easily (without using two mailbox and completely different flows)?


Machine groups is a very good idea, why not going "full in" and also allow file system to use a machine group (or linking a gateway and a machine)?


Best regards
