I'm very new to QuickBase, and I'm having a hard time figuring out how to auto-refresh a dashboard.
One of my dashboards is going to be on a standalone display, so I need to make sure it updates every couple of minutes without user interaction.
How do I do this?
Thanks in advance,
Then place the page on the bottom of your application dashboard using the web page widget option. You can adjust the timer (5000 milliseconds) to suit your needs. The reason to put it at the bottom is to not overtake the information currently displayed on the dashboard.
Here are my more detailed notes.
It’s like you said. You make a user defined html page. Then to see its URL click the magnifying glass icon. The page opens with the URL in the pop up window’s address bar. (ie that means make a code page using the settings like you would use to make a dashboard page except choose a Code page as the page type)
Pull an html widget into the dashboard with that user defined page URL. I put my widget at the bottom so as not to take up valuable top of browser real estate.
Works like a charm.
e.g. URL that gets pasted into the dashboard widget will look like is yqc.quickbase.com/db/be53mi1234?a=dbpage&pageID=4
This is what goes in the Code Page
Setting the delay to 1ms will seem instant, but is there a way to automatically go to a different page, which is a form, rather than a reload? 2 snippets relating from above:
