Refresh data source
I think it would be useful to have an ability to quickly re-read a data source using some kind of button in the ribbon. For example, if I have an XML data source and its structure is changing while I'm working on a report, I have to go to the Data Sources, click Edit, Test, OK.
I am happy to share that this functionality is finished and released in our 20.1 version of Designer. Please find the documentation here: https://ohana.windwardstudios.com/m/76878/l/1256777-20-1-0-update-connections-reference . Thank you for your idea and please submit any other suggestions you have to improve our software.
While in the AutoTag Data Bin it would be useful to be able to right-click on a node (table, view, etc.) and press "Refresh" to re-read the columns of the table or view, etc. Currently, one needs to go to edit the data source in order to do this which is inefficient.
