Tips for improving the performance of various actions

- Computing layouts: If layouts are taking too long, consider simplifying your visualization
- Connecting to data source: Slow connections could be due to network issues or issues with the database server
- Executing query: For live connections, if queries are taking too long, consider using an extract to speed up performance
- Generating extract: To speed up extract generation, consider only importing some data from the original data source
- Geocoding: To speed up geocoding performance, try using less data or filtering out data
