I have a mutli-select field referencing about 32,000 records. Any tips on how to make it go faster?

You could rework the app to have that be a proper child table where users would add multiple child records. It could be the join table in a Many to many relationship.

If you describe the business purpose maybe there is a more traditional approach which would thus have b enter performance.

My understanding was that multi-select fields are limited to having a maximum of 100 choices, is that no longer the case? (I ask with hope!)
