Smartsheet to Array - Has to be a better way.

I need to get a modest sized Smartsheet into Flow or Powerapps.  This is quite doable, but wow... it takes forever because of the double nested loop it has to do to extract the data.  Smartsheet is a table, there has to be an easier way to get a table out of a table.  This is what it takes.  It takes about 1sec per line.  Its a few hundred lines, so its just not practical to use.

I suppose we are just subject to the file that Smartsheet is giving up for us to hack into.  

 

The instructions and the hints in the action imply there may be some way to get the data you want, but it doesnt seem to do anything.  That would be the "

Hi @martinav ,

 

You could try setting all apply to each to set Degree of Parallelism to the maximum.

@v-bacao-msft ,

 

Oh!  I did not know about this setting.  I would like to know if there are any negatives to using this at a maximum on ALL of my flows?  For what reason would someone not want full possible performance?  Are there caveats to doing this?  I have a feeling there must be.

 

Hi @martinav ,

 

This will only improve the execution efficiency of Apply to each contained in a single Flow. It does not affect other flows.
