Creating a SharePoint List with Columns from template or code

Hi,

 

I currently have a Power Automate that creates a new SharePoint list with 56 columns upon trigger. The trigger is a button in a Power App that I have. The problem I am facing is that the Automate takes 2-3 min to run since there are so many steps (100+) due to there being 56 columns created. This causes the user to have to wait 2-3 min after they click the button in the Power App for their SharePoint list to create. 

 

Is there a way for me to optimize of quicken the flow process using either an existing SharePoint template or some kind of code to quickly build the list?

 

Here are some screenshots from my Flow

There are a few ways that you can improve performance, one of those are concurrency controls:

 Another is to run operations in parallel branches:

Another option is refactoring your logic, including utilizing things like Filter Arrays, and OData Filtering, before your apply to each loops.

Basically, if your loops are checking every single item, you have an opportunity to prune that data down before the loops. Loops are the biggest time sink.
