Suggestions: Timezone and refresh options

It would be great to be able to customize the timezone, ie when reviewing data sources and the refresh time I wouldn't need to convert the time from EDT to CET by an external source to interpret when it was refreshed. I believe this would be a highly appreciated addition for all non NA customers such as myself.

I also feel myself wanting additional options for data source refreshes, see below.

  • An 8 hour refresh option. This way a data source used for daily/weekly reporting will always be up-to-date when getting into the office while minimizing the refresh usage.
  • An option for setting the time to refresh a data source, potentially combined with an option of daily/weekly/monthly or certain days and weekdays/weekends.

At the moment I had to review many of my data sources and change the refresh window to 4 hours from previous 24 hours. This was due to some klips and it's respective data sources not being up-to-date when I get into the office on monday mornings.
This is due to a data source being refreshed at the time window based on when it was created and I feel there is a lack of options to interact with this (hence, see above suggestions).

    Hi team, 

    I want to reinforce the below request:

    • An option for setting the time to refresh a data source, potentially combined with an option of daily/weekly/monthly or certain days and weekdays/weekends.

    Setting the time of the data sources refreshes are a must-have feature, because we need to syncronize this with our ETL processes and right now this gets very hard and frustrating.

     

    Thanks in advance!
