Save Icon Status
I recently created a sheet that has 303 rows by 26 columns with a lot of LOOKUP() functions in formulas (about 2040 formulas). I use the sheet to compress raw timesheet data that ultimately ends up in an Excel database. When I was debugging it was configured to handle 75 projects and it worked fine although it was a little slow. When I increased the number of projects it would handle to our 120 project maximum it basically stopped working in Chrome forcing me to reload Smartsheet to get things working again. Oddly, the identical sheet works fine, but slow, in Safari and also in Firefox.
I noticed that the Save icon stays dark grey for about 15 seconds in Safari then turns light grey and then everything works fine. However, in Chrome the same sheet keeps the Save icon dark grey forever or until I reload Smartsheet from scratch. In Chrome I get the screenshot below.
Does anyone know what the app is doing when the Save icon is dark gray? I have noticed it typically taking from 1 - 4 seconds to go light gray after a sheet loads and more complex sheets take the longest. Should I not be doing anything until it goes light gray? If instead of killing Smartsheet I tell it to wait I get the "Aw Snap, something went wrong" message from Chrome after a minute or so.
