How to disconnect visuals and stop visuals in same page from refreshing?

Using the PowerBI Performance Analyzer, selecting an item on the page triggers the page itself to refresh all other visuals within the same page. These visuals should have no iteraction with one another and the page should not refresh the visuals. I turned off interactions by going to the Format tab, Edit interactions but the problem persists. There are two tables and two item boxes that display a calender date and time. 

Similar issue


The picture attached is the user selecting an item from the table, Cross - Highlighted, the rest of the visuals below are Date Range, Refresh Date, Text box, and Table should not be in this query. How can I go about removing/disconnecting these four visuals?

I have a similar issue.  If I'm running Performance Analyzer and make a change to a slicer then the queries behind all the visuals are re-run - even those where the interaction has been set to "None."  When Performance Analyzer is stopped, this doesn't happen.

Hello @parry2k ,


What I mean by "selecting an item on the page" is the interaction with the page itself. There are two tables filled with data and if the user selects, for example, a row of data from that table, the entire page refreshes the rest of the visuals. This is the case for any interactions with the visuals on this page. I would like for the page not to refresh any of the visuals as its slowing down the performance and not neccassary.
