Add / Remove record from excel table takes ages

I have a button that uses UpdateContext (populated by 2 dropdowns) and then SubmitForm to add a new record to an excel table stored in OneDrive , and another that removes the currently selected record. The thing is, either of these actions takes 15-20 seconds to complete, and sometimes seems to just time out without a message. Am I doing something wrong or is this expected behaviour?


Thanks in advance for any help offered.

Re: Add / Remove record from excel table takes ages

Hi  @RS


As of my experince and @Mr.Dang, we have tested OneDrive, DropBox and GoogleDrive, so far,

only DropBox can response within 3-5 seconds.

OneDrive and GoogleDrive can go for about 20-50 seconds.


You are not wrong but have chosen a slow response cloud storage service platform.

We have no idea why OneDrive and Google Drive is Slow but frankly, Dropbox is almost par with CDS.


Please have a trial.

Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a go. Frankly it is beyond absurd (but not really surprising) that I have to go outside of the microsoft ecosystem to get decent data link performance.
