Q:  Is it possible to wait for a flow run to complete before the next run starts?

A:  If it is a single flow that is handling all of your updates you may be able to make use of the concurrency control on the trigger. Within the settings for the Trigger step of the Flow, it is possible to force the process to wait until the previous run has completed by reducing the concurrency control Degree of Parallelism to 1.

I have had this successfully working recently with the Microsoft Forms trigger. If multiple Form responses are submitted at the same time, they will sit in a waiting state within Flow until they can be processed.

Is it possible to wait for a flow run to complete before the next run starts?
