Refresh only one data source

The refrsh button refreshes all data tables. I'd like to have a button that gives me a dropdown list so I can only refresh 1 data source. I have eg a spotfire dashboard with data from 15 data sources. Sometimes I only want 1 data source refreshed, it is a waste of waiting time and system resources to also refresh all. And going manualy to Edit, Data table properties, etc etc is a bit too much work.. :-)

    This is possible in Spotfire Analyst and Spotfire Business Author today. Please see this documentation.

    Good day,

    Your suggestion still requires quite some clicks to get to that data table level. My suggestion is to replace your current ‘data refresh’ icon in the toolbar by an icon that also has a drop-down list of all data tables used in the analysis. If the user just clicks on the icon in the toolbar, he refreshes all data (current functionality); if he right-clicks the icon he gets a list of data tables and he can select the one he wants to refresh.

    I hope this is possible to implement.

    Best regards,
