New Dashboards auto refresh

    Do the new dashboards auto refresh or use AJAX or similar to auto update the reports and data on them?  Otherwise I had a code page link on my old dashboards to a javascript code page that would refresh but I am not sure if it is necessary anymore.  I just moved our first group of users to the new dashboards so fingers crossed they survive tomorrow lol

    The new dashboards do not have Auto refresh, although I know the Product Manager has heard of that request.  I suppose that votes with UserVoice would help.  Let us know if you find a "hack" work around?

    I do have one that works well.  I created a code page called refresh.html and placed the following code in it:
    <script>
    setTimeout(function(){
    parent.location.reload(1);
    }, 900000);
    </script>

    After that, I just create a web page on the dashboard referencing this page so it auto refreshes if it is open for a lengthy period of time.  Only hiccup is it is noticeable as it "blinks" to the user but well worth the price of the data being up to date.

    I am not sure how this will play with new dashboards and tabs.  I am thinking I might need the web page widget on each tab but not sure yet.
