Do not refresh screen when editing Field Settings during View Prepare

When editing Field Settings, after moving to a new object the window refreshes, collapsing the left navigation folder system. This means that the admin has to reselect the folder to find the next object. This is time consuming when making edits to a long list of objects. It is frustrating to wait for the screen to refresh and frustrating to have to go hunt down the folder and the next object. It makes building views take twice as long as it should.

The screen and selection should stay where you are at.

Disable Auto Refresh, so that it allows you to finish your task.

Hi Jess,

Thanks for reaching out to support with your issue.

Disabling the auto-refresh setting Janardhana referred to below should keep the window from refreshing on you, does this help achieve the functionality you're looking for?

Thanks,

Eric

Hi, it looks like you're referring to the Auto Refresh toggle that is on the Prepare screen in View building. I turned this off and it has no impact on this experience. I actually can't tell what Auto Refresh being off is supposed to do. Nothing changes when I tick it off, I still get the loading animation whenever I change anything in the Prepare screen, and I get not data results when it's on.


If there's a different location for the setting you're referring to I'm interested in trying it. The fewer times I can get that loading animation the better.


I've attached a quick video of the experience with Auto Refresh off. In it you can see that I have to expand the Dimensions folder each time I make changes to a field and want to move on to the next one.
