Pre-programmed scheduling for refreshing data

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Is there a way to set up a scheduled refreshing of a report? I'm trying to create a dashboard using a google sheet, but its obnoxious to refresh the data every time I open the report to show my colleagues (it takes some time to update the charts and such with the refreshed data).

 

Sometimes when I refresh my data, the charts with throw a configuration error and I'll have to reconnect the charts to the same data source, which will for some reason fix the charts. Any tips for that problem as well? I can explain this specific problem in depth if anyone doesn't understand.

There's no automatic refresh officially supported but someone has created a Chrome Plugin to help:

You can also disable the cache which forces a refresh each time you open the report, but sounds like this may not fix your problem:
