I am trying to display the variaous visualizations in my report as a slideshow. I am planning to use Chrome's Auto Tab to rotate each tab in a specified interval. So, I will put each visual in it's own tab.
My question is, if power bi refreshes the data while chrome auto tab is running, do the graphs get updated or do I need another plugin to refresh the tabs? Has anyone tried this ?

Hi @Bernards6 ,
Thanks for the feedback! It has been a little while since I last posted that, and I was wondering if anyone was still going through and searching for the same thing I was.
In regards to your question, I know exactly what you are referring to. I noticed the same issue when I was testing this extension several months ago, back when I setup the Github repository.
There is some documentation on Google Chrome extensions and how to communicate certain events and triggers to the browser, and I haven't had the time to go back and teach myself how to implement them. That might be a good place for you to start, unless I can return to it and figure it out before then. When I was troubleshooting it a few months ago, that is where I had left off.
My company is actually waiting for me to finalize some department and executive-level Power BI Reports to release to our Production Floor where I will be using my own extension, so I have to return to this very soon and figure it out. If you want, fork my Github repository to your own so you can keep up with any commits that I make.
It's so nice to know I was able to help someone else out! The Power BI community is a really nice group of people.
This extension is cool it works!
I have another question, does it refresh the dashboards?
I have an auto-refresh add-on on Chrome browser along with your extension, but when the Page refreshes the slideshow goes on but it exits the full screen mode. Any solution to this?
Why do you need refresh the page?
If you have schedule updates in Power BI, you do not need to refresh.
I still working in the extension, I want leave the slide time adjustable.
Any idea will be welcome 🙂
Is it possible to display a play/pause button? Or to pause the timer automatically when a user interacts with the report? I'd like to use it on a big screen with touch functionality.
This extension is superb!
Excellent extension. Just want to ask also for a 'Pause/Play' button/feature. The ask is to have people that walk up to a touchscreen to be able to pause the slideshow and change a report filter.
@_picoloto43 Hey. I am having a issue with data on the dashboard not refreshing anymore even though my data set refreshed. It is still flipping through the tabs though.
Can you try add in end of your report URL "?chromeless=1" and start the extension?
I think this trick will solve your problem
