Look back at your reports and updates the queries to only the get the data you really need. To the top projectdata/Tasks? $select=TaskName,ProjectName,TaskActualDuration,TaskFinishDate,T askPercentCompleted&$orderby=TaskPercentCompleted desc&$top=20 $top to reduce the scope When you only care about the top Race to finish Top 3 Filter on some properties projectdata/Tasks?

$select=TaskName,ProjectName,TaskActualDuration,TaskFinishDate,T askPercentCompleted&$top=20&$filter=TaskActualDuration gt 10 $filter to improve perf $filter out inactive projects, non relevant tasks to reduce the size of your download even more. Logical Operators Equal, Greater than, Or . Filter on a project Get the ProjectID

You can also do this programmatically Use it in your query projectdata/Projects(guid'b28fc3ef-99bf-e111-9f1e00155d022681')/Tasks Functions Date functions Int month(DateTime P0) - $filter=month( TaskFinishDate) eq 2 String functions bool substringof(string po, string p1)
