                  An additional item I would like is to disable the flyouts for data previews. If you ave a big query that is pretty intensive, accidentally pausing on it to trigger the fly out can cause Excel to focus on the refresh and consume resources.

                      Having the ability to set an easy filter to "The Last Year" in addition to "Last Year based on Today's date" would certainly add a bit more robustness to date filters. I think this could be especially useful for accountants as we are often dealing with finishing our year end in January, and the current date filters cause us a shift in our reporting filters before we are ready for them.

                              Hi all,

                              I wanted to share with you that the new query caching mechanism in Excel has been deployed to Office Insiders starting from Excel version 1801 (build 9001.*). At this stage, we would like to allow some “baking” time as we monitor the feature health metrics.

                              In this scope, we need your help to ensure a quality release! I encourage you to try the following scenarios and share your feedback:
                              1. Run Refresh All on a complex workbook with multiple query dependencies. Does it work faster?

                              2. Run Refresh All on a complex workbook with multiple query dependencies. Do you see any issues with your data?

                              3. Refresh a single query several times. Do you see any issues with your data?

                              - The Excel Team

                              One thing I wish we could do is rename this to "improve performance in Power Query", and not just limit this to the scope of one issue. This particular one is a problem, for sure, but there are many others, like this one http://www.thebiccountant.com/2017/07/20/sql-query-folding-bug-still-alive-sucking-powerbi-powerquery-excel/

                              Right now we need a considerable focus put on improving performance anywhere and everywhere it can be improved. I think many of the comments on this thread to date are made with this view in mind, but wanted to vocalize it myself.
