Performance optimization tips for widgets

Hi All,

Is there any documentation/blog posts related to performance optimization tips for widgets?

I use 4 out of the box chart objects and 4 custom objects in a sheet, custom objects are taking more seconds to load.

2 seconds - response time for out of the box

8 seconds - response time for custom objects

Performance difference is so obvious, trying to bring down at least few seconds. 

Thanks in Advance!

There are many ways to make an object slow, but the most common is that calculations take a long time.

Try to identify which of your objects is the slow one. Then try adding the same data to a standard object and check if it's also slow. If it is, the problem is your calculations. If not it might be your object:

- does it make a lot of calls to engine?

- does it fetch more data than needed ? Like thousands of rows where you only see a few.

Good luck!


It's a KPI widget with simple expression like sum({<Filter1={1}, Filter2={'Value1'}} Sales)

Wondering whether there is any best practises or optimization document for widgets/extensions.
