Local Folder Scheduled Refresh Inquiry

Hi Everyone,


Excuse my trivial question.


Does my PC have to be online if I am scheduling refresh?


if yes, How can I schedule refresh to these folders if my computer is offline/turned off.

Re: Local Folder Scheduled Refresh Inquiry

If the folders are on the local hard drive of your computer then yes. If it is not online, then things won't refresh. Note, if the folder is on your local machine, you will need a gateway installed in order for the Service to refresh the dataset.
