Pause Data Queries in a Workbook

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

You can quickly configure a visualization without having to wait for data updates after each change.
  1. On the Home page, select a workbook, click the Actions menu, and then select Open.
  2. Click Visualize.
  3. Click the Auto Apply Data button to pause data queries.
    Data queries are temporarily disabled.
  4. Make changes to a visualization in the workbook.
    Your changes are displayed but data isn't updated, and a bubble is displayed indicating the number of data requests that have been skipped.
  5. Click the bubble if you want to refresh the data now.
    Data queries are still disabled.
  6. Click the Auto Apply Data button to re-enable data queries.
