Re: Power BI Dashboard on full screen with auto refresh

@vrocca If I put the report in Full Screen (F11) and use the method you describe, how to I hide the other bars ( side and Top), to pick up even more space?

Re: Power BI Dashboard on full screen with auto refresh

Add the parameter ?chromeless=1 to the end of your URL string.

Re: Power BI Dashboard on full screen with auto refresh

That's how I got it to work. Type the parameter at the end of your URL, hit enter, hit F11. (This worked for me in Google Chrome)

Re: Power BI Dashboard on full screen with auto refresh

Hi

 

I'm not sure I'm doing this right.

 

I have an app that contains one dashboard based on a report.  I have pinned a live page to the dashboard from the report.  The dataset is direct query to SQL on premises.  I've set the cache to refresh every 15 minutes.

 

My problem is that I can't get the dashboard live page tile to refresh.  I'm displaying the refresh time and shows that it has refreshed, but the data in the tile doesn't change.  If I refresh the browser page however the values do change.

 

I've tried the normal TV mode and your ?chromeless workaround.  It looks amazing, but it's not showing new data.

 

What else am I missing?

@RichardtS I had to switch away from the Pinned Live Dashboard and just do this via the Report.  Once I did ?Chromeless=1 with super auto refresh, everything started working.

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.
