It is a very simple issue but all users should be aware

 

Scenario: Making a copy of a Form Pro Project

 

Impact: Copying Project will also copy all Flows related to surveys in the project.

 

Consequence: We use a schedule to send a weekly survey to all staff. When we made a 'backup' of our Form Pro Project, the flows that prepare and distribute the invites, and handle the responses, all copied. Because the original Flows were set to 'Run', the copies were set to 'Run' when made. The Scheduled flow ran once upon creation and then ran again when scheduled.

 

Microsoft - Can you please provide an option 'Copied Flows will be set to Off'
