    This functionality is extremely important when creating an complex workflows. It should be straight forward to accomplish. I currently accomplish this by leveraging Document Properties, IronPython Scripts, and the data functions to accomplish the synchronous execution of the list of data functions. A document properties to hold the list of DFs and the pointer to the current DF that triggers an Ironpython script that pulls the document properties that contain the list of DFs and the pointer to the current DF to run and executes it from within the IronPython script. I.e. not trivial and not many people are even aware that it is possible.

    Controlling data functions and the order they are executed in can be difficult currently due to limited configurations, and also being unable to set an order of execution like in the Data Canvas. Being able to control a flow of data functions and when they trigger in some form of data canvas style flow would be very powerful and useful for producing data science tools in Spotfire
