Ability to prioritize / set order of the updates, other than the order I are added to the job definition.

I would like the ability to set the refresh order of the queue, in scheduled updates, without having to unload all jobs and then add them again.

User comments and use-case:

"We have a number of jobs defined in the Scheduled Updates page to pre-load data into reports. We have restricted the maximum number of concurrent jobs to prevent excessive server load, so that system performance of non-preloaded reports is not impacted whilst the scheduled updates are running.

However, when all jobs are put into the refresh queue (for example, when the server has been restarted) I execute in the order in which I have been placed into the schedule. We would like to be able to prioritise our most important reports so I are available to I sooner than less critical ones.

The only way to achieve this currently is to unload all jobs from the schedule and re-add them in order of priority, from most important to least important.

The request is to add a prioritisation parameter to the scheduled update job definition which is then used to determine the order in which the jobs are executed."
