Do you see the delay when you open the second popover or after you click a service check box?
Yes, there is a delay when I open the 2nd popover, however, the delay is not as long. I selected all the departments and the 2nd popover took about 5 seconds to open (which showed all the services available).
The long delay of over 20 seconds is after I click a service check box. This 20+ sec delay happens when all the services show in my 2nd popover.
Thank you for the response.
I found this:
which sounds like what I'm experiencing at the moment, with the only differences being that 1) I'm not using a portal, and 2) I'm not using a dropdown menu.
The issue has been solved.
It turns out I was creating my value list by using a table occurrence that was based on a humongous table.
I created another TO based on a different table that contained significantly less values and that fixed it. No more delays
In other words, both tables (the big one and the small one) contained the information I wanted. I just made the mistake of grabbing that info from the big one.
