Simplify the Report
Navigate to the dashboard with the report you want to edit. Locate the report feeding the chart (e.g., a donut chart) and click the link below it to view the report. Click "Edit" on the right-hand side to make changes to the report. Remove unneeded columns Ensure you only display necessary fields like groupings (owner of the individual activity) and the date for record count purposes. Click "Save" to apply the changes.
Use Fixed Timeframes
Use date values or date ranges to speed up the report. Use filters on the filters pane to narrow down the data Remove the filter if necessary. In activity reports, use an end date to exclude future activities that slow things down.
Improve Performance for New Reports
Save your current report and click the app launcher on the left-hand side. Click "Reports" and then "New Report." When building a new report, use only the object data necessary for the report itself.
Refresh Your Dashboard
Navigate back to your dashboard using the app launcher Click "Refresh" on the right-hand side to load the latest data. Note: Clicking "Refresh" multiple times within 60 seconds will be ignored. If the information is not displayed within 10 minutes, the report may have failed. Try again in a few minutes as the server caches data into memory.
