The Profile Group control is a Display control that is used to display user profiles in the form of a group.

UI Properties

  • Description : The option to provide a description that you can add for your control. It is visible when you switch on the visibility toggle property.

  • Caching : When the caching option is selected and if a LOOKUP formula is applied to this control, the value that the LOOKUP returns will be cached and the user will be able to see this value in the fields even when he accesses the microapp later with no connectivity. This option is required when you want your app to be accessible in offline mode as well and getting the latest data from the sheets is not always critical.

  • Hidden : The hidden option helps to hide the control from the user. This helps when you don’t want the user to view the control.

  • Trigger Dependents : When you Disable Trigger Dependents, it helps you to reduce or optimize the unnecessary evaluation of the dependent control’s formula. For a detailed explanation refer to this article here ..By default Trigger dependents are enabled. However, in complex apps by switching it off, you would limit the evaluation in the dependent control and in turn ensure quicker response times.
