In Topic: Reports - Extending the use of Date filters (default value: now)

13 February 2015 - 02:18 PM

Maybe I'm the only one using dates in reports but to dynamically have the options like "field before [[TODAY]]" or similar would save a lot of time with default values for my users. Even a field of "last X days" where you dynamically can add your own instead of 7 or 30 would be helpful.


Am I alone in actually using date fields in reports? :)

In Topic: Handling multiple contacts with same name (Product module)

It can be done but it requires some custom coding. If you would like some help let me know and I can do my best to help you out!


Sorry for the late reply but I didn't get a reply notification this time. I'm interested if it's not too much trouble for you. 

In Topic: Exporting Reports to CSV

You should check this out: https://bitbucket.or...-large-datasets
Worked wonders on my exports.
Also for a shared host edit in /app/protected/modules/export/ExportModule.php these 3 variables:

 public static $asynchronousThreshold = 1000;

 public static $asynchronousPageSize  = 500;

 public static $asynchronousMaximumModelsToProcess = 2500;


First one is "how many records before background export".

The last one is maybe more important as it defines how many records to process in each batch. It looks like you never finish a batch, so lower this value to 250 or something as a start and work your way up.


On a shared environment I'd lower all of these values + the background process is single threaded so you won't gain anything by adding vCPU's either.


Good luck!

In Topic: Best practise to add a task "to call"

02 April 2014 - 01:25 PM

I am glad that not only me is facing the same issue regards tasks to remind about calls. If we could get the instructions on the best possible way of using this feature - that would be great.


So, did you reach any consensus regarding how to handle calls? I'm curious on how to handle them myself...

Good idea.
