File creation on OneDrive very slow

Hello

Since PowerApps still doesn't support printing, I'm trying to build a workaround in PowerAutomate.
My flow gets SharePoint data, fills it into a word template, saves a docx on OneDrive and converts it to PDF.
The PDF shall then be opend in the browser, allowing users to save or print it.

Problem: the flow takes 20 to 25 seconds. More than half of this time is used to create the docx and PDF on OneDrive.

Since we are talking about 100 KB or less per file, 13 seconds for two files is hardly acceptable.

Is there any way to speed this up?

Thank you for your help.
Marcel

Greetings Magra,

I reckon it still depends on your file content from my test(it would cost 1 second if I input noting in file content )

I tried with 10 KB file content and it also would cost 3-4s no matter for Sharepoint or OneDrive for business.

 

In addition, I checked some blog and other's post where file creation operation usual cost 10 seconds. Currently there's no OOB method to speed up the file creation.

Hello Johnny

Thanks for checking. Not quite what I hoped to hear. But I guess I gotta accept that.
