Had a similar issue in my system I found out that there is a feature in Quickbase that by default is not enabled called AJAX Report Loading. Have you Realm admin request this be enabled for your account by submitting a help Support Case. This has to be done at an account level not by an App Administrator
Hope this helps
Sorry was not clear on this it is at a domain level so it would effect all applications created on you domain by any App Administrator regardless of user setting
There is an option after load to disable the feature at an individual application level
this will actually improve the user experience
I just tried it and it�s very intuitive. I have a form with tabs and they do not load until I select the tab. But once I do select the tab, then the data �stays loaded�.
I think that this would be a great feature to roll out in a self serve basis where the Admin could set the app properties on how to behave. It could be marketed as a performance booster as it will just make apps run faster. There could be many apps where users wish they would be a bit faster, and where you have forms with tabs, those forms will load faster for the main tab. Often the tabs which are not the first tab contain secondary information which is not used very often.
There are also some cases where a record is edited triggering an Action or an Automation. This would be a technique to introduce a delay Long enough for the action or automation to process. So then when the user goes to the tab, the data will be there. There are situations now where the record refreshes too quickly upon saving and say a bunch of child records need to be created, but the form refreshes before the Action /Automation completes.
