There’s nothing more disappointing when your flow run fails in Power Automate 💔
A lot of people don’t know, but you can configure actions to run depending on the success or failure of a previous step. This allows you to set up a back-up plan, which is especially important for those business-critical flows.
Configure run after setting is used for error handling in Power Automate. The setting is found here on an action:
In this example, let’s say we only want the Teams action to run if the Outlook Send an email action fails. We can change the setting so that the Teams step will only run if the outlook action: has failed, is skipped, or has timed out.
In a future post, I’ll show you how scopes can be used for the Try/Catch method of error handling. This allows you to have a series of actions that run as a back-up plan for error handling.
