- Date range: Try breaking a large date range down into smaller time frames, as smaller export files will use less resources.
- Amount of data (number of records, number of fields/columns, etc.): Add filters to help narrow down the amount of records included in the export, or minimize the amount of columns that are viewed.
- Server traffic: If possible, try exporting the data early in the morning or late at night, in case heavy server traffic is at play.
