When there is need to show multiple demos in succession it is often required to reload/reset a single workbook only (Refresh Book is not enough). When updating to PAW 2.0.57 the option to Reload Book was lost.
When preparing the demos, all sheets in all books should be preloaded to create smooth demos. However, for several reasons there may be need to reload/reset a book in the middle of a demo. The reasons include images not loading, inresponsiveness, need to update an embedded website view, a stuck process, and the need to reset after creting changes to the book on the fly.
If reloading the whole browser page then the preloading of sheets in other workbooks is lost. Also, if there were any temporary edits that one wish to return to during the session but not save then these are also lost.
The current workaround is to always open a new browser sheet for each workbook.
The reload option would also useful for returning to last saved state even when working with a single workbook especially if the other selections on the page would not be affected. For example, if one has opened a Databases side bar and navigated somewhere within it then they may wish to maintain that sidebar view even when reseting the book itself.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||As a consultant, I want to be able to smoothly demonstrate several workbooks and features in succession.|
How should it work?
When pressing Reload Book (or Reset Book) the book should return to last saved state. However, all other books open in the same browser sheet should to be unaffected. Also, any side bars that are open should not be affected.
|Priority Justification||The feature smooths several workflows but workarounds exist.|
