Too many requests error on startup



I made an app which allows you to edit about 100 different Excel tables in one app. All of these tables need to be loaded in on startup as the different datasources. Since I have so many to load in at once I keep getting multiple 'Too many requests' errors. I can continue in the app after clicking away all the error messages, and I can open the datasources that failed to load by simply hitting the refresh button.

This isn't very user friendly so I was wondering if I could only load the datasources when they are needed in the app, so not all at once? This way I wouldn't get the error messages and users could acces all the needed Excel tables by just refreshing the ones they need, this would lead to a lower workload on the server side and a lower workload on the app itself.


I already enabled the Delayed Load function but it doesn't help...

(I was thinking mayby something with the OnStart function but I'm not sure how...)

Hi @ArneVTR ,

Do you want to load data sources in batches?

I'm afraid it's not supported currently in PowerApps.

It will load all the data sources when you start the app automatically.

I suggest you express your views about adding this function on PowerApps Ideas Forum. Your precious feedback will be very helpful for our work.

You could also consider using collection in PowerApps.

If you store some data in collection, the amount of data sources could be reduced.

Loading collection will not result in error because it will not increase the restress of server.
