Hello

I am trying to build a flow that:

1. Waits for an email

2. If it does not arrive after 30 Minutes stops the flow and sends an email.

@JFM_12 there's no trigger that can wait for an email, you'd have to have something else that triggers the flow.

Hi Rob

Thank you. Is there not a possibility to stop the action "when a mail arrives".
What I meant. The flow starts and waits for emails. If it takes to long then another action stops the flow.

@JFM_12 I think you are misunderstanding what the flow can do. There has to be something that triggers the flow, that makes it start. For example when an email arrives or when a SharePoint items is created. A flow can't just sit there waiting to see if an email hasn't arrived, the email has to arrive for the flow to trigger.

Hello Rob 

Thank you very much for your answer.

I was unclear and made now a printscreen.

This would do my question clearer.
