The queries generated by the filters Last Snapshot (xxx) add sub queries that can greatly increase the refresh time of the reports.

Here is an example of a report using Last Snapshot (mono CMS)


The general idea for this work around is to separate the filter results from the main query. Then use the results as a filter for the main query

First we need to create a new query that we can name SNAPSHOT_ID.
Using the Snapshot Id object and the previous filter Last Snapshot (mono CMS) or (multi CMS).

See the example below:

Run this query, then we can go back in the main query and replace the Last Snapshot filter by a new filter on Snapshot Id.
This filter should be set to Equal to the Result from another query (select Snapshot Id from SNAPSHOT_ID query).

See the example below:
