    FileMaker 15's new portal in-line progress bar is a fantastic performance improvement!


    We would love this exact same feature brought to unstored calculation fields and summary fields.


    Currently, if you are on a list or detail layout that has a bunch of unstored calculation fields on it (especially if those unstored calculation fields are trying to aggregate thousands of related records), you might be stuck staring at the spinning beach ball for a few minutes while everything gets calculated... without you being able to do anything else in the system while the fields calculate.


    It would be amazing if FileMaker would let us continue working in the system while those unstored calc fields continue to crunch in the background.
