So I found this thread that delt with this issue:
Even when I turn off automatic updates on the worksheet in the desktop tool and publish the server defaults to automatic updates on, and I'd like the ability to control that. The work around offered in the above thread I don't see working as part of the motivation is the number of filters being applied is already an issue.
Any update as two progress? Is this classified as a bug or feature request?
This would be classified as a feature request. I would recommend adding it to the Ideas section!
