Plugin: Defer Report Load on Tab focus
I am happy to announce my new Dynamic Action plugin: “Defer Report Load on Tab focus”. Get it ap apex.world!
This Dynamic Action plugin is meant to be used for slow reports that run under a tab container. Put another way, it’s for reports that are not visible right away and perhaps may not be unless the user clicks on the tab.
The plugin assists in deferring the load of an IR or Classic report until the tab gets focus. In reality, the report does run, but it should use a “trigger” item set to ‘N’ the first time it loads. Then, the DA will switch the trigger item to Y when the tab receives focus and refresh report and load the data.
I made a quick video to show how it’s used.
