Hi @Anonymous,


Could  you share how you tested and found this issue?

Do you use the same files and performing the same network environment when testing?

I did a test on my side and configured a flow such as "When a file is created in a folder -> Copy file". The difference is that the action---copy file is different.

In this way, as long as a new file is created, the two Flows will be triggered together, on the same network, and the execution time will be different.

Although the time spent does vary, the difference is a little bit.

The new version of the action can provide you with more convenient configuration operations and more flexible features.

Hello @v-bacao-msft


I have been using the sharepoint site and moving between the folders, where as the new one takes a longer time to fetch the file and move it to the desired path where as earlier one was doing the action quickly. I have tried comparing the actions today with new share point and old sharepoint, i could see a predominant difference. 


New Sharepoint action took 25 seconds where as old action took just 3 seconds. of course i agree new connection is flexible due to this time difference i was forced to use the old one.
