Export Progress window to show estimated time remaining

0     2     Edited Oct 3, 2017 by Anonymous

I just wanted to let you know that I think the load to RAM feature is the best new feature in RB. Last year, I had to export a large set of tables overnight, but this year, I ran 900+tables for the same project (and more data!) in an hour.

This also made me think of a new feature idea—provide an estimate of how long the export will take.

Your idea is genius! I’m always looking at that progress window wondering how I can make the progress more obvious. I most recently re-configured it so you can see more elements in the window without scrolling, so I can get a better idea about time remaining. But I never once thought about showing an estimate!! This is definitely what needs to be done. A perfect suggestion. Thank you!!

Also, thanks for the note about loading into RAM. I’ve been working on a version with faster computation times, and your note encourages me that it’s a good thing to work on.
