Hi @gidon500 

You can do that with a QlikSense Extension to reload the data, like this one: Qlik Sense Reload Button  or from its GitHub page: QlikSense Reload Button; follow the directions to install the extension in your application (the one the CFO wants to refresh on-demand); your application may end looking like this:

This extension, like any other extension you may find just run the Application's Load Script, keep this in mind when handing this improvement to the CFO; if the changes they apply to the business application's front-end are included in the tables loaded by the QlikSense's Load Script everything will work as expected BUT if the business application's front-end data is written to tables un-related to the QS application's Load Script, you have to change your approach to this issue, regardless, you will need the extension.

If the Business Application's data is written to tables un-related to the QS application's Load Script, then you may have to introduced tasks to reload this data into the QVDs loaded by the QS App; Tasks is a feature of the Qlik Management Console (QMC)

I hope this helps,
