PowerApps saving very slow



I have a application which saves data to entity. I save data using SubmitForm. In the foem I have 40 controls which is text with some lookups. I have a attachments control which can take maximum 10 attachments.


When I fill the full form and do SubmitForm it takes 7 to 10 minutes to save to Entity. Is there a way to improve the time to save


Thanks And With Regards

Re: PowerApps saving very slow

Hi @kbpartha24 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you mean that your app would take 7 to 10 minutes to save form data into your Entity?


Actually, there are many reasons that an app can be slow to load, slow to respond, and slow to write to data sources. The following common issues as below:

1. The app has a large number of controls/objects that directly reference on-line data sources for many of their properties
2. Shaping expressions (i.e. Filter or Search) that contain clauses that require frequent server calls
3. Shaping expressions that are not delegated
4. Use of inherently slow data sources such as Excel on OneDrive

Please check the following blog for more details:

In order to improve your app's performance, please consider take a try with the suggestions mentioned within above blog.


In addition, please also check and see if the following Performance tips for canvas app would help in your scenario:
