Ability to refresh reports in dashboards, in case they fail to load.

I build many reports and Dashboards. Thanks to Dashboard sharing ability now, I am able to send out dashboards to concerned team members regularly. But sometimes if I have more reports on the dashboard, few of the reports fail to load (As shown in below screenshot).



It would be very helpful if we can have a refresh option for each of the reports that failed to fetch, this would allow us to choose for reports that we want to load in case they are not loaded in the first attempt. (It would be very delightful experience if the application itself checks frequently and loads unloaded reports), would be happy to know GS community's opinion on this.

I have encountered this as well.  Partial workaround - if you clear filters on the report in question it will reload the individual report.  Of course that's only helpful if the end user doesn't employ custom filters.

@Venkatesh, Its a valid ask.Thanks for posting!

Changing a filter refreshes the report. Using this technique you workaround this problem by making trivial changes to the filters. As we keep improving performance of reporting this issue should not occur in the future.

Thank you @Dale & Sairam,
I have tried the work around it is working. In fact I need not modify any filter to load the report but just by clicking the "Apply" the report is reloaded. Thank you again!
