Turn off Automatic Updates to Boost Performance
When you place a field on a shelf, Tableau generates the resulting view by querying the data source. When you create a dense data view that involves many fields, these queries can be time-consuming. You can instruct Tableau to turn off automatic updates to improve performance.
Automatic updates for worksheets
By default, automatic updates are turned on and the toolbar button is highlighted . However, it is sometimes more efficient for Tableau to execute the queries you need only for your final view, rather than for every intermediate step required to compose that view. You can turn off updates for worksheets by clicking the Pause Auto Updates toolbar button.

Thank you Ritesh. I am aware of automatic update, but please note that this question is about a published workbook that the users will be viewing on Tableau Server. I will update my original question to make sure it's clear.
