Get monday.com API subitems

Hi guys, I have a question.

I'm using the monday API to retrieve the platform data. Recovering the initial data was a piece of cake, but now I face a bit annoying problem. When trying to retrieve the sub-items (child activities) of a project, power bi fails, as it displays the query complexity message and gives a timeout.

Have you ever had this kind of problem?

Is there any way to paginate the queries in power BI and somehow give each query a 5 second pause so as not to time out the monday API's 1 minute timeout?

I'll put here the print of the error and also of my query

Hi Ibendlin,
I tried to use this function, but unfortunately it didn't work. Do you have any examples of how it works?

I have a similar issue, We have a Power BI dashboard set up to connect Monday.com with using the API key. We’re receiving a time-out error when trying to refresh the data, but the error is only coming across for only one of the boards, we have connected three boards in total and only one of the board is giving us the time out error. 

 

I did go through the below link https://blog.crossjoin.co.uk/2021/12/17/simulating-slow-data-sources-in-power-bi/ 
Could you please help where it has to be applied to the current M-Query we have been using.
