Manually control when to show / refresh visuals when there are a lot of records

There are instances where the initial load of the dashboard can be slow. Or the user wants to only the load the dashboard after they have made several filter selections (which would help reduce the data and avoid slow rendering).

There is a setting in dashboard that can manually control when to run queries and fetch data: http://documentation.arcadiadata.com/4.5.0.0/#pages/topics/enable-dashboard-manual-refresh.html

On initial load the visual area will be blank.

This will allow users to make as many filter selections as they need without causing the visuals to constantly refresh or load huge amounts of data. Once the user has completed all their filter selections they can click “Refresh Visual” button

Which will then load / refresh all the visuals with the appropriate filter selection applied:
