Data processing capability (lack thereof) is really frustrating

Trying to process a few thousand rows of data which in a normal environment is a piece of cake. Since its different in Bubble I’m using several API workflows for each step with half second intervals for each step which seems more than reasonable.
Still getting timeouts and random gaps in the data and its extremely unproductive, unreliable and frustrating.
So then I have to delete the data and start all over again with a different approach, and deleting bulk data is a whole other ugly animal altogether.

I’m not necessarily looking for help, just venting…
