The parallel processing can be achieved using the Linked process. But it is only helpful if we want to start the Linked process only once.

How about raising multiple folders for the same linked process and also using Rendezvous action to wait for all to complete? 

Loop back action to Linked Process stage does not work.

Also, tried raising a separate flag in child process in that loop back action. It, obviously, created new child folder but still rendezvous action doesn't wait for all to complete.

The way linked processes [are supposed to] work is the other Linked processes are called by the flag and the calling processing stops.  The calling process resumes when one, or all depending on "Wait for all/eny linkd processes to complete" (All or Any one), of the linked processes reaches its/their archive stage.

If you want various other processes to run while the main folder continues along its own path, or to halt without using linked processes (perhaps in a system stage), you can raise other processes and call flags between then as needed/desired.  That is how we handle parallel process of preliminary approvals and billing while the main process continues.

Yes, but using the Linked Process stage can multiple folders of the one linked process be created?

By "multiple folders" do you mean in the same subprocess or in multiple/different subprocesses?

I believe linked processes are designed to work more with multiple/different subprocesses since each is started with a flag action.

If you are looking to create multiple folders against a single process, then raising flags for each condition will likely be needed.

Yes..you got that right..
I am trying to create multiple folders against a single process.
So I have to raise flags for that.. I just tried using Linked Process stage with the loop back action in it but it was not working.
