Pause Data Queries in a Project

You can disable the Auto Apply Data option to pause issuing new queries as you change visualization content in a project.

You can quickly configure a visualization without having to wait for data updates after each change.
  1. Open or create a project.
  2. If you've created a project, then add a data set to it.
  3. Confirm that you’re working in the Visualize canvas.
  4. Click the Auto Apply Data button to pause data queries.
    Data queries are temporarily disabled.
  5. Make changes to a visualization in the project.
    Your changes are displayed but data isn't updated, and a bubble is displayed indicating the number of data requests that have been skipped.
  6. Click the bubble if you want to refresh the data now.
    Data queries are still disabled.
  7. Click the Auto Apply Data button to re-enable data queries.
