Condition searching through too many calendar events

Is there anyway to stop a condition from searching through all calendar events once it's found it's match?


The condition I have looks like this:


But when it runs, it actually searches through the whole calendar and takes ages to match up.




I'm worried that when I get hundreds of people filling out the form and it takes this long to complete that it might cause issues.


1) is it actually an issue that a full completion of the process will take 10-15 minutes when multiple may happen at once?

2) is there a way to stop it searching through the 256 calendar events when it's found the right one?

Re: Condition searching through too many calendar events

Hi @khaycock ,


There is no any way to stop it searching through the all calendar events when it's found the right one currently since the action in the apply to each is run synchronous.

I suggest that you could add a "Filter Array" action to check the match items firstly and then you could get each item with an apply to each.

Hi @v-alzhan-msft,


This didn't make it any quicker really unless I haven't got the order correct. Do you mind please checking it for me?




Many thanks,
