AUTO REFRESH DASHBOARDS
Auto Refresh Dashboards every time you click the Home Tab.
Tired of seeing the wrong numbers displayed on the Dashboard? Oftentimes, users forget to hit the refresh button on the Home Page Dashboard. This can result in Salesforce users seeing inaccurate data which can be confusing and frustrating. This TIP will help keep your Dashboards refreshing with the most up to date information.
Go to the setup menu:
Click customize, Home, Homepage Components.
Edit Messages and Alert.
Paste this code anywhere in the data entry box:
var dashboardButton = document.getElementById("db_ref_btn");
//Runs the Refresh function every 5 minutes using Milliseconds (1minute = 60000)
run = setInterval(sa_refresh,300000);
The code will refresh the dashboard every time you click the home tab or every 5 minutes.
