Partial Reload as a standard option for a QMC Task

The partial reload would be very beneficial for working with IoT or online data.

It enables to have almost real-time data in the user app without the need to reload the whole data model => requires fewer resources.

It can already be triggered with API, but should definitely be an option for a Task Trigger in QMC.

Along with this, there should also be an option to set a timeframe when an hourly Task will NOT be executed (skipped). For example, many companies run consolidation and cleanup procedures on their databases during the night, so it does not make sense to reload data in specific hours.

In the context of a partial reload that runs every minute, there needs to be a possibility to postpone a partial reload and run a full reload for the rest of the data model.

I'd even love to have an option to decide in script and do either full or partial reload based on conditions.

Yes! That is an excellent idea.

There is an IsPartialReload() system function, so why not ReloadMode() function or variable, similar to how ErrorMode works.
