We are trying to mount an interactive TV in our office so people who walking by can play with the dashboards and reports. But there are some problems that need to be solved. Any suggestions are welcome!
Some problems that need any input:
Or, did you encounter any problems in your organization that need a heads up?
Any suggestions will be helpful!
Thanks a lot!! This is super helpful!!
An additional question. Do you have any suggestion on Chrome Auto-refreshing the dashboard/report? Assume I have scheduled refresh twice a day.
When a dataset is refreshed, the dashboard should be refreshed automatically shortly after. The report should always query the latest version of the dataset when navigated to. If you expect it to sit idle for long periods, then I'd include a page refresh in your idle-navigation script. If people will interact with it regularly, it shouldn't be a problem. Chrome might have a scheduled refresh capability, but I don't know.
@greggyb - Thanks for the info on the chomeless option. I couldn't find this information anywhere. I've put suggestions to PowerBI to make the "Full Screen" option have extra features (i.e. Auto refresh / Auto Page Change).
There doesn't seem to be much support for the presentation side of PowerBI. We have multiple big screen TV's with our KPI's on, but I've had to tweek stuff to get it working.
If you are running Windows 10, there is a PowerBI app for viewing reports. However, I don't think it automatically refreshes and may not be suitable for showing on presentation screens.
For anyone out there looking for an auto refresh, there is an excellent Chome plugin called "Auto Refresh Plus" - It's free and allows you to refresh the current webpage on a timer.

Thanks a lot for the chrome extension! I'm going to try this out today!
an additional questions, In your organization, do you currently have a way to make the report go back to dashboard page/main page after Windows is inactive for a while?
