Hi DMiradakis, thanks for sharing such useful file and info.. It works fine, schedule is refreshing and dashboards are updating accordingly in full screen and rotating. The issue that I am having is that when I Press esc and close the PBI ones I open it again, it’s automatically starting, there is no stop function. Is something that I am missing ?!
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.
Anyways, now the extension will not fire until you actually click the little Power BI icon in the upper right-hand corner. I plan to return to it again soon and add more options for users to work with, such as halting the extension after it has been started.
I have already pushed a new commit to the Github repository's Master Branch:
@Bernards6 and anyone else who is interested:
This will be tremendously better than the current version of the extension. I am about to commit it to my Github page (see above links) very soon. I'll post here again when I update it.
To all who are concerned, I have finally finished overhauling the Chrome Extension. I have redesigned the extension into a fully functional popup with a play/pause buttons as well as drop downs to separate the refresh time and slide time intervals!
It's really cool! 🙂 Check it out on my Github:
To answer your question:
However, I have an additional suggestion for you: navigate to the Release tab on my GitHub repository and download Pre-Release v2.0.0-alpha .
I highly recommend you do this. Why?
Essentially, in building this extension, I taught myself:
The extension is now capable of some incredible feats, such as:
You are probably aware that there is a refresh limit for Pro users and Premium users both in Power BI. However, there is no refresh limit for refreshes that are initialized inside the Power BI Service's user interface (😉). So if you know some JQuery and use those two Mutation repositories I linked above, you can change the webpage's DOM and listen for those changes and then respond to them. It is quite advanced but totally awesome to pull off. The result is Pre-Release v2.0.0-alpha.
Check it out.
Hi @DMiradakis !!
First of all, I really want to thank you for your hardwork, dedication and kindness to share this awesome solution!
I tried to use your latest GitHub release, but it seems not working for Power BI's Service New Look (neither refresh nor slideshow)
Do you know any workaround for this issue?
It’s time for another PBI Community recap!
