GoldMine Contact Search is Slow/Delayed

I recently noticed that I was  having performance issues when searching for contacts in my GoldMine. When using the Search Center, I noticed there was some serious lag time while I was typing. It was almost as if  GoldMine was trying to  “catch up” with what I was searching for.

If you experience a lag when searching, you can try to increase the “Lookup alignment delay while typing” setting in GoldMine.  This setting tells GoldMine how long to  wait before querying your search term.

To change this value, go to Tools | Options | Lookup

Then change the “Lookup Alignment Delay While Typing”.  You’ll notice that the value is given in 10th of seconds, so adjust accordingly, perhaps to 10 or 15 (1 and 1.5 seconds respectively).
