Data Profiling in the Browse Tool | Alteryx 11.0 - Possibility to turn profiling off

When working with large amount of data the browse tool profiling causes the program to stop responding.

 

A feature to disable the profiling per browse tool.

or even better

After a set threshold (e.g. amount of rows), the auto profiling is disabled and requires an action to run.

Why not a Cancel Button? And more options on the browse tool for profiling :

-sample (%, number of rows, time)

-calculate or not

This, plus dataprep's comments would be a great idea. The profiling is great when working with up to several million records, but beyond that ends in a non-responsive Designer (though it comes around eventually).
