Refreshing Dashboards

Hi everyone,

 

Is there a way for us to build a dashboard to refresh each time it is viewed?  Or do we always have to manually click on the "refresh" button at the top of the dashboard to update?

 

Thanks!

Virginia, 

There is a known bug in the Dashboards for this. It is scheduled to be fixed with the next release currently scheduled for this Sunday (Apr-26).

Hey Boris,

 

Awesome!  So does that mean that once the bug is fixed, the dashboards will update each time we open them?

 

Thanks!

Virginia, 

Thank is correct. I believe the behavior will be similar to doing a Run Report when you open or refresh the Dashboard.

Hi Boris,

I too would like a dashboard automatically refresh when a user opens it.  Is this still in the pipe work to be fixed?

Thanks,

Pete

This is still an issue today. Can someone check into this again? 

I built the perfect dashboard for consultants to keep on top of things and it's always out of sync...

Put me on the list for this one also. Dashboards that can only auto-refresh once per day... and even then only if you specify a 'Run as' user, which prevents you from having any user-specific reports/panels in the dashboard... are very limited usefulness anywhere but at the managerial level where they just want to see the day's numbers.

Dashboards have the potential to be so much more than that and I suspect that users are trying to implement them in much more dynamic capacities and are seeing them fall short.

Paylocity would like dashboards to refresh when accessed as well.
