When adding a dimension to a view, the processing time is longer than expected.


  • Tableau Desktop


The greater the number of marks, the more processing power and memory that is required to render them. Further, when creating a dense data view, the underlying queries might be time-consuming and significantly degrade system performance. 

Additional Information

The number of marks is indicated at the lower left corner of the Tableau Desktop window in the status bar.
