Consider the situation where you have a large table that has lots of data as inputs and is slow to compute, and this table is then used as an input into other tables and visualizations. If the large table does not need to be regularly updated, you can instead:
- Create a Calculation, linking it to the table (by typing the name of the table in the R CODE field).
- Uncheck Automatic.
- Link all your other tables and analyses to this Calculation (created in Step 1).
- Delete the original table or move it to a page that you don't click on.
When you do this, Displayr only has to retrieve the results of the table, which is typically much faster than re-creating the whole table from scratch.
