Change project data source without breaking project?

Content

Has anyone figured out a way to change the data source without breaking the project?  The requirement is simple:

1) Sometimes we want to copy a project and keep existing built graphs and canvas but change the data source to a different version (same fields, just different data)

2) Go back and forth between versions of data (project 1 is last month's data, new copied project would have new data)

It looks like you can only "reload" a data source, never change it or use a new version.  We can upload a different Excel file and reload, but this defeats the purpose.  To show an older version of the data you'd have to go back and keep changing the Excel file, you could never really have two separate projects without completely re-creating a new project.  It also looks like you can't rename a data source either.

Howdy, Stranger!
