So, we've moved the container fields from a contacts table to a containers table, with the understanding that these containers (files of MB in size) won't be downloaded when the user requests a found set of contacts. This should improve performance of the solution.
However, to streamline interaction with these related records, we've added the related container field off-layout to use in scripts.
The question is, did we just lose the performance gained by having the related field on the layout (but off-layout where the user can't interact with it directly)?
Thanks in advance,
