Sometimes excess manipulation and filtration of large datasets can cause PowerApps to lag.

PowerApps Delegation is a feature of Microsoft PowerApps that allows users to optimize their data sources for better performance. This feature allows users to define certain data operations that are delegated to the data source for execution instead of being done by the app.

This allows the app to run faster and more efficiently, as the data source can often process the data more quickly than the app. Delegation also allows users to access larger data sets, as the data source can break down large data sets into smaller chunks and process them in parallel. This can help to improve the performance of the app and reduce the amount of data sent to the app.
