Metadata does not load unless app is run


I have several apps in our Alteryx gallery where users can select the operational facility from a dropdown list or a list of checkboxes. Recently we have added a new facility, but that facility did not automatically show up as an option to select. I found that it would show up if I open the app in designer and run it regularly (not running it as an Analytic App). Is there a way to ensure that the metadata will be there without this manual step? I know I could set up a chain analytic app to load all possibilities for facility, but some of the apps are more complex and would require this process for multiple questions. Is there an easier solution than a chained app?
