Can't undo changes on a large Data Studio report

 Hi,

 

Since yesterday, my report started behaving differently.

For example, I cannot undo any changes.

Also, I cannot see multiple face icons next to the SHARE button anymore, when other viewers are seeing the report.

And I started to see "This report is too big for collaborative editing. Your changes may be overwritten by other editors" warning.

I'm wondering if they are expected behaviors for a relative large report (with 30 pages)? If they are glitches, it would be great if one of devs could fix the undo feature at least. Thanks!

 

EDIT:

Below are errors I'm seeing in Chrome DevTools JS Console.

These issues cannot be reproducible in another 1-page report.

Hi Hideki,

 

I spoke with one of our developers. Unfortunately, this report has gotten too big for the realtime service to be able to handle collaborative editing. This also has the effect of disabling undo/redo (the only way to keep that working, I believe, would be to lock the report somehow to a single editor, which could cause even bigger problems with shared reports). 

 

The best advice I can give is to shrink that report, maybe break into a couple of linked reports. 

 

Hope this helps!

 Hi Hideki, 

 

Can you share your report with data-studio-help@google.com? 

 

I will have a developer take a look.

 

Best, 

 

Rick

Hi Rick,

Thanks for a quick response! Splitting the report into multiple ones sounds like a good idea.

Having the same issue on EVERY report.

 

When I create a new fresh report, undo/redo actions are grey out by default from the beginning.

 

I'm having this issue on several G-Suit accounts from the same company.

Hi David,

 

How large is that report? # of pages, # of charts / page? What is the data source?
