How do I make Admin changes without impacting workflow in my model?
After certain Administrative changes are made, the calculations stored in memory in your instance are deleted. This is so that the next time sheets are loaded or reports are run, the data has to reload and recalculate. This happens so the data is most up to date. In instances where calculations are more complex or where there are very large data sets, this can cause a noticeable impact for end users.
If Administrative changes cause noticeable impact for end users, it is recommended to schedule Admin changes outside of times when end users are making updates and running reports. There is an option called Admin Publishing that allows administrators to make updates and publish them at a later time.
For more information on Admin publishing and how to enable in your model, please see these documents:
