Co-presence in Power Automate | Multiple users working on a Flow

Here’s a cool feature that is just announced!

Now see who’s also Editing the Flow in parallel with you. Microsoft just announced this update is super-useful in teams working parallelly on a Flow – https://powerautomate.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/announcing-co-presence-in-power-automate/

Here’s a quick summary

Co-presence in Flow

Once a Flow is shared and if both the users happen to be on the same Flow in Edit mode at the same time, here’s how you identify

  1. Let’s say this Flow is being edited by CRM Admin and it’s shared with the user Priyesh Wagh too.
    And it appears like a usual Flow which you are editing


  2. Now, on the other hand, Priyesh Wagh also logged in and opened this Flow to Edit. And when CRM Admin too is already editing parallelly, both parties will see the other participants like so –




  3. Both parties can continue to Edit. However, when either of them saves First after both have entered, there will be no issue.
    Now, once any other party after that Saves their change i.e. 2nd save by other user than who first saved, they’ll see the below warning asking to choose an option to avoid the clash.


  4. Let’s say the user chooses to Save a copy, you’ll be asked to save this into a new Flow.



    The new Flow saved will not be shared with other users and hence, will continue to exist outside of the Shared with me section into Cloud flows section
