NOTE: This limit has now been changed. You can now create more than 250 flows in Microsoft Flow!


As a consultant, I often do demos and it can be very annoying if just before you do a Microsoft Flow demo and you get a warning telling you that you have 250 or more flows within your Flow environment created by your demo account. I still really don’t understand why this limit even exists, but at least I’m not getting any surprises during my demos.

Below you can find a flow that I have started to implement for all my environments.

The 250 flows limit in Microsoft Flow Microsoft Flow, Microsoft Office 365 count flows

In the Compose actions I’ve simply used the following expression:

[code lang=text]

After the above flow you could add some a condition where you could send out an email if you exceed for example 240 flows.


Note: In the above flow I’ve used the List Flows as Admin. This will give the flows of all users. In my demo environment however I only use 1 user account for my flows.


Note 2: If you hit the 250 limit you can raise a support ticket and then the limit will be raised.
