Add auto-refresh to dashboard widgets

Leigh_KildayLeigh_Kilday Member Ninja IT Monkey ✭✭✭✭

Like the standard grid views, it would be ideal if the widgets could auto-refresh. I'm using a SQL Table Widget to pull WI data with custom fields. It's limiting without auto-refresh.

    Hi guys!
    Try this code in custom.js

    (function() {
    	$(document).ready(function () {
    		var url = window.location.href;
    		if(url.indexOf("/Page/") === -1){return;}
    		var mainPageNode = document.getElementById('main_wrapper');
    		var observer = new MutationObserver(function(mutations) {
    			var Element = $(".dashboard");
    			if (Element.length > 0) {
    		var observerConfig = { attributes: true, childList: true, subtree: true, characterData: true };
            observer.observe(mainPageNode, observerConfig);
        var Action = function() {
    		console.log("In action");
    		var timerRefresh = 30000;
            $(function () {
                window.setInterval(function () {
                }, timerRefresh);

    Not tested but looks great. Very nice work!
    Just edited your post to say to add to custom.js, not css but very cool customisation.

    Yes, of course JS.

    Geof, tell me please how I can use a widget method of reload data instead of my workaround?

  • Geoff_RossGeoff_Ross Cireson Consultant Super IT Monkey ✭✭✭✭✭

    I think this would work very nicely as a new widget type that can be put on any page and have the refresh interval as a setting.

    Anyone think that would be interesting?

    I think that would be amazing!

    I think we need this, particularly for tables where staff want to manage tickets on custom pages. In this case I would settle for them being consistent with the refresh settings in the portal admin section.

    @Geoff_Ross This would be great. We would like to have custom pages but the refresh is an issue. For example, there are some old Microsoft promoted views on the portal that we would like to replace them. We have SQL tables. The feedback is that they are great but its just the refresh isn't quite working in our environment.

    Is this any chance that this would become a new widget?
