How often is the ODS used in Advanced Reporting updated with changes made to the source data, e.g. Employee Central?
SuccessFactors Online Report Designer / Advanced Reporting
Changes in the source application are recorded every minute, but the server applies the backlog of changes to the ODS on each instance in a cycle. The time between updates for a given instance (in effect the time it takes to come around to the same instance again) can vary greatly; for legacy ODS it can take up to several hours (or over a day if there is an issue causing lag) whereas an instance using Realms on a server with no issues can update after as little as 10 minutes.
Note that this only applies to the Detailed Reporting submenu; all Live Data is taken directly from the source so no loading is necessary.
