I reproduced this issue. When using auto refresh on Chrome, it will exit the full screen mode of your dashboard. I suggest you consult the developer of "auto refresh" to avoid this behavior.

Re: Power BI Dashboard on full screen with auto refresh

The best we could do with this exact issue is switch to Firefox. It's not perfect as there is a window title bar you can't hide but it's better than chrome.

I used the Hide Navigation Bar, Hide Toolbar and you may need HideScrollbars as well. Combine this with Tab Auto Reload and it works. All be it with a small Firefox window header. It's the best we can do for the time being without paying a fortune for dedicated screen display software.

Re: Power BI Dashboard on full screen with auto refresh

Are you saying Chrome does the auto refresh (i.e. reloads the URL), or the Power BI Dataset refresh?

 

If you are using a Dashboard, rather than a Report, then you do not need the browser to auto refresh.

Turn off Chrome auto refresh then.

 

Alternatively, if you are using Windows 8+ you could use the Power BI Windows App instead.

In the URL for the Power BI dashboard add the switch ?chromeless=1 to the end of the URL. This will force the dashboard to full screen.

@Daveed1973 i've tried that, but after the refresh still got the url at the top and task bar at the bottom.

Re: Power BI Dashboard on full screen with auto refresh

So is there no current Msft/Power BI supported solution that will refresh the data on a report/dashboard while viewing it on a browser in Full Screen mode?

 

How do existing clients that use TVs to display dashboards in their office go about refreshing the data that's being displayed?

Thanks,

Re: Power BI Dashboard on full screen with auto refresh

I am also having this issue.  We have 4 tvs setup next two each other.  2 tvs are running on 1 PC and 2 tvs are on another tv.  Because of the configuration, I cannont use the Dashboard Rotator to manage the jobs, as this application can only have one instance running at a time.  So, I have one browser loaded on the each screen and my "Live Pin" on the Dashboard displayed in Full Screen Mode.  The presentation looks good...however the data won't auto refresh due to being in Full Screen Mode.  Any assistance on this would be appreicated!  I have more dashboards being prepared that will be displayed throughout my company and I will continue to run into this problem if it isn't resolved.
