2604574 - Charts in stories open significantly faster for the second time in SAP Analytics Cloud

  • SAP Analytics Cloud 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon to SAP Analytics Cloud.
  2. Open a story for the first time.

  4. Go back to Browse >> Files and open the same story again.
  5. Notice that the charts are displayed significantly faster.


  • The "Enable Progressive Chart Rendering" option is enabled in the System >> Administration >> System Configuration menu.
