Hello,

 

We currently have a list that records data almost every day from users. The list has exceeded the 5000 item threshold by quite a bit (around 25000 current records) and this is causing slow performance in the attached Power Automate.

 

How can I access this list and delete older items so that the Power AUtomate performs smoothly?

Have you tried a programmatic approach?
Hi, aside from programmatically deleting items from the list, have you considered looking at how your power automate flows are running? Do they run every time a new item is added? If so is that required or could it be ran as a daily/ weekly task?
