Best Practices Report Detail Page



Hi all,


Anybody has any advise on best practices in building details page in reports?

Somehow I managed to make my details pages in my report to "crawl" and move slower than molasses. I know it's because of the big amount of conditional calculations and charts that I have in the details page.


Do you have any good piece of advise to give in terms of using calculations, virtual fields, and parameters?


In particular: 


1. Should I use more virtual fields (with data source as the calculated fields) and have the calculated fields hidden?


2. Should I limit conditional calculations and use more scripts instead?


My page sure is slow.


Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.


Best regards,

Hi @Elena,

What I suggest for you to lessen the slowness of your page is:

- limit the use of List- strings, drop-downs, images, and other fields that will load multiple data or large amount of file size.

- Also limit the script code that you use.

I think the calculation, virtual fields and parameters won't take affect the slowness of your page.
