CSR Report taking increasingly long, need assistance determining SQL resolution.

This report I built initially took a few hours, then 5 hours, 10, etc. Now It's taking 2 days. I know the report is fine because it's been imported to other environments and it works well there. 

SQL team did some digging and found this recommendation from SQL. I need assistance determining the possible negative consequences of doing this, if any:


The Query Processor estimates that implementing the following index could improve the query cost by 99.9214%.


WARNING: This is only an estimate, and the Query Processor is making this recommendation based solely upon analysis

of this specific query. It has not considered the resulting index size, or its workload-wide impact, including its

impact on INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE performance. These factors should be taken into account before creating this index.


USE [mcafee_csr]


CREATE NONCLUSTERED INDEX [<Name of Missing Index, sysname,>]

ON [dbo].[csr_fct_exact_access] ([site_request_id],[datetime])

INCLUDE ([detail_record_id],[action_request_id],[category_one_id],[malware_id],[user_ip_id],[site_name])




My gut tells me this won't do any harm, but I know very little about SQL. Thank you.
