Youcalc Homepage Tiles

Reproducing the Issue

  1.  Login to your BizX environment.
  2.  Currently, all the Youcalc homepage tile gets auto execute which sometime reduces the Homepage performance.


  • When the data displayed in the “tiles” is not an aggregated content, the database queries will fetches a huge number of rows.
  • Displaying huge amount of non aggregated data is of not much value in the home-page and resulting in many performance issues.


New approach for running Youcalc tiles on Homepage:

To get rid of the big database queries which currently gets auto execute as soon customer login to BizX homepage, Product has come up with below new approach.

  • Only if the home page tile contains a “group-by” clause (in the underlying query), the tile will auto execute and display the data.
  • In case the home page tile does not contain a “group-by” clause, we will NOT auto execute the tile upon user login, and the users will be expected to explicitly click a “refresh” button to populate the tile with the latest data. See below screenshot



  • This enhancement will only impact custom and some standard models. Tiles created through Tile Builder functionality will not have any change.
  • Tile created through Tile builder always have a "group by" clause therefore Tile builder tiles will not be impacted with this enahcement.
