Is it possible to shorten the loop to under 5 minutes?

Jump to solution

I have a loop that loops through a repeating section and creates a list item for each row in the repeated section, but I must have it working faster than a loop every 5 minutes. How can I accomplish this without causing the workflow to fail, or crash?

Are you putting your repeating section items into a collection variable? If you do that, you can use a "For Each" loop which will make sure each is complete before advancing to the next and thus shouldn't crash your workflow

Thank you for your reply.
I'm not putting them in a collection variable. Is this a best practice for this, and will it run faster than every five minutes?

I would think it would run faster, as creating an item wouldn't take 5 minutes. It should basically queue up the next item to create as soon as the previous one is finished. This way, you're not creating items simultaneously but you're also not wasting/losing time between item creations either.

Great! that's exactly what I need. I get the five minutes from the loop. When I used the loop to do this it only ran the loop every 5 minutes, and this is not acceptable when you have several items to create. Thanks again i'm going to try this out.
