Pack formula invocation is slow

Hi there,

I’m discovering pack creation.

For the moment, I tried a simple little thing: Taking a date and returns the previous or next month.

That’s all, but the invocation from Coda seems really slow.

I understand that pack formula are run on server, but any really simple operation takes between 1 and 2 seconds to run (which is huge, I think a simple FaaS would take only some milliseconds)

Is this the expected behavior?

Thank you.

Hello @Cactus ,

I’m not a pack creator :(, but the slowness can come from many things.

For example, the browser that has a large cache, start by emptying it and if it’s still slow, change the browser to see if the problem persists, no matter which one you use.



Anyway I realize that I won’t be able to do what I wanted.

Using a Pack Formula in a table filter will make a POST request for every single row of the table…

Pretty unusable…

Yes, but there may be a solution that I don’t know about. There are many professionals on this forum who will surely have a solution :slight_smile:

Thanks for your feedback :slight_smile: @Scott_Collier-Weir, I didn’t think directly to check if there was already a topic about this problem ^^.
