Hi,

at the Moment the Dashboard are automaticly refreshed with the Standard filters. It would be nice, when we can configure, if a Dashboard automaticly refresh or Manual refresh from a user.

Hello Carsten,

Thanks for reaching out with your Idea. At present it's possible to define 'Autorun Report on Load', which defines whether the report loads automatically when a user loads it. When this is not enabled the report does not run until the user clicks 'Go' on the filters pane.

There is also an option to set this per report at a Dashboard level:

The above will only refresh the report data when the tab is loaded, or upon updating the filters and clicking Go.

Does this sound like what you're after?

Thanks,

Ryan

I'm experiencing something different using 7.3. It seems that the autorun feature is ignored for reports on the dashboard. Also, when the report runs, it ignores the default filters.

Hi,

ee have some Dashboard, where are many datas in. So it would be nice, when we can also configure that the Dashboard doesn't refresh when its loaded.

Hi Carsten,

Another option is to set the Reports contained on the dashboard to refresh on a schedule. This is possible for reports that don't contain user-prompt filters, and can be accessed on the 'Refresh' tab when publishing a report:

Reports on the dashboard with this set should provide the behavior you're seeking.

Does this particular choice fit your scenario?

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi,

no not really. ;-)

I think the best way is, that the user must go on "run" to "refresh/activate" the reports on the Dashboard.

Hi Carsten,

Thanks for the reply. While the report caching is much more involved in configuration than your proposed Dashboard-level solution, it can be used as a way to achieve the functionality you're after. Since Dashboards are collections of Reports, configuring this at a Report level is the current solution to the above scenario.

In the meantime, I've logged your Idea and will keep this post updated on further information regarding whether it's chosen for future development. My suggestion will be in the form of a cache of sorts that will show the last state of the Dashboard as it was run. If I've misunderstood your suggestion please let me know.

Thank you,

Ryan

Hi Ryan,

Do you know if this idea has been implemented, we are looking for a way to disable the auto refresh the dashboards. Disabling auto-run on report level do not help us.
