    server: configure data connections (caching)

    Ross Moffitt

      To refresh less often (cache) or refresh more often (each page load) - that is the question.

       

      Scenario 1 - Data updates monthly. I have a very large dashboard (30 sheets, 30 dashboards). I want the best load times so the user does not have to wait for views/dashboards to load.

      Scenario 2 - Data updates daily. I have an extract that refreshes daily and feeds a dashboard. When the users opens the dashboard, I want them to have the most refreshed data available (no additional clicking).

       

      Does anyone have any experience or recommendations on cache settings that are optimal? Would either of these scenarios suffer due to one or the other settings?

       

      Please advise. Thanks!
