Improving performance for read-only users

When the dashboard first starts up, it loads a large set of information upfront. This information is related to editing actions and it makes the editing user experience much smoother.

However, this can cause a bit of a delay when a user first logs into a dashboard.

You can mitigate this delay for users that simply consume charts by disabling their permission to apply Temporary Filters (which relies on that editing information). This stops the logic related to any editing from being downloaded and run on the user’s browser and makes the dashboard and the charts load faster the first time they login.

To do this, edit your desired user, ensure the User Type is set to Chart Viewer and under Chart Viewer Privileges, untick Can Apply Saved Filters, as shown in the following screenshot.

Make sure that the user does not have any role that would allow them to have Can Apply Saved Filters.
