    How to STOP Tableau Server from reloading views in browser pages?

    Clare Bayley

      If I open a view in a tab and then go view another tab/window for a while, when I go back to my original view after 5 minutes or so it will immediately begin re-loading the view. (not the whole page, but the view/dashboard inside the Tableau interface)

       

      I understand that it could be useful to check for new data, but I use a series of Tableau dashboards for a weekly presentation and it is incredibly frustrating to open them all beforehand only to have to wait for load time when I re-visit the tabs during my presentation.

       

      I just want them to load the first time they open, and then not refresh unless I hit the force refresh or reset buttons.

       

      I DO have my Server configuration set to "Refresh Less Often," But I think that's for data connections and not in-browser views.

       

      Any ideas? Thanks.
