Hi everybody,

Since there's no built-in function for that yet, I've created a tiny Chrome extension that takes control and refresh your Data-Studio reports every X minutes ans also paginate between report pages. Great for big screen dashboards Smiley Happy

btw, it's not the F5 regular refresh, but the real internal dashboard refresh

Hi, thank you for sharing - this is awesome! I try to visualize data from our database and because ssl is not supported by data studio actually, we decided to export a csv and use it in data studio with a google sheet. When I update or insert data the plug-in works fine. Because this is a bit work by hand I thought I'll ask you if this is the best way to do it at the moment...? Thank you and all the best

If your DB is mySQL, then DS just announced support mySQL SSL. I guess soon it will be supported for other DB's as well.

Another option, you can use (like I do) Supermetrics plugin for Google Drive, get your DB data to Google sheets, plus they have a feature to schedule refresh the data, and there you go. no more CSV and manual stuff.

It's a Chrome extension, hence, works only when Chrome is open.

Thanks for a great tool!

I have one problem. The pagination doesn't work properly. I have 13 pages on my report and only pages 1-3 are showing.

Any ideas on this?

Thanks again!

Hi,

Just tested it with 20 pages report and it goes well. from 1 to 20 and back from 20 to 1.

Maybe try to reinstall the extension.
