Increasing Item Limit in Power Apps: A Step-by-Step Guide up to 2000


Power Apps is a versatile platform for building custom applications, but its default delegation limit of 500 items can sometimes restrict the handling of larger datasets. Fortunately, Power Apps allows users to adjust this limit, extending it up to 2000 items for improved data management and application performance. In this article, we'll explore the process of increasing the delegation limit in Power Apps through the app settings.


  1. Handling Larger Datasets: Increasing the delegation limit enables Power Apps to handle larger datasets, providing users with greater flexibility in managing and analyzing data.
  2. Enhanced Application Performance: With access to more items, applications can perform more efficiently, resulting in faster load times and improved responsiveness.
  3. Improved User Experience: Users can work with more comprehensive datasets within the app, leading to a smoother and more productive user experience.
  4. Expanded App Capabilities: Extending the delegation limit unlocks new possibilities for app design and functionality, allowing developers to create more sophisticated applications.


  1. Resource Consumption: Working with larger datasets may consume more resources, potentially leading to higher costs or resource contention in shared environments.
  2. Performance Considerations: While increasing the delegation limit can improve performance, apps with extremely large datasets may still experience performance issues, particularly on devices with limited resources.
  3. Data Sensitivity: Handling large datasets within Power Apps may raise concerns about data security and compliance, particularly when dealing with sensitive or regulated information.
