Google data studio reports refresh

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I created a report with data coming in from a Google sheet but when I add data into the already existing fields, I dont see a way to refresh the data and the report.

 

So for example, I have month and amount as fields. If I add new months and amounts to the fields, how is it possible to refresh the data on my reports?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

 

There is a refresh button where the page controls are:

The Refresh Data button isn't working for me: https://www.screencast.com/t/Aq8lmSlSMpP

That means only editors can refresh the data. What about refreshing a report while viewing it? Can a refresh be automated as soon as new / changed data is in the source?

On the top right there is a refresh button when viewing the report. I dont think there is an automation for this.

Yuval,

 

This isn't answered... As I mentioned above, the Refresh button isn't working. Here's a screencast of what I'm talking about: https://www.screencast.com/t/Aq8lmSlSMpP

But the refresh button is there only for editors, but not for viewers. I.e. the editor always has to manually refresh the report so view see up to date data. That does not make much sense to me. Either the refresh button is there also for viewers or the reports can be automatically be updated, e.g. event-based when the report is opened/loaded or at regular time intervals or programmatically through Google Apps script.

I've created a tiny Chrome extension that enables the viewers to refresh the report on chosen intervals. it does not do the regular page refresh (F5) but use the internal refresh method.
