How To Display on a TV?

One of my customers has created a report which is displayed on a full screen TV hosted on production line

The Report has a SQL Server Direct Connection (they have manufacturing machines that write data in SQL every few seconds...)

 

He needs the report to auto-update every 30 seconds to show near real-time information about production

 

At the moment he is using Chrome as browser, with a 3rd party extension to "auto-refresh" every 30 seconds.

Is there an option in PowerBI Service to automatcally refresh to see "live" data? (I know about scheduled refresh and auto-update from SSAS). I am talking about auto-refresh from SQL Direct Connection...

@autodafe I am only aware of the 3rd party way to force a refresh of the browser. This refresh initiates another query to the source database. The only option I know of that will automatically change data in the browser is when you are using Real Time streaming...

Hi there

What if you rather create a streaming dataset, that will stream to a dashboard that can then update in real-time?

Re: How To Display on a TV?

Hello i did'nt mean to intrude but i have the same concern but differently. I need to display on tv some data which is not mine, i work in my job with different areas at least four ones.  So they have their only exclusive data and we agreed all of us to share one dash board each, the problem is first off i need to dash board in one panel every data and display it on tv stream thus everytime they update their data. I created a work space where they can share their data to me and in my case create the dash board of all of them. Honesty i do not have any idea to stream the data to be honest.

Hi there

It would appear that it would need more details around the exact requirements in terms of how often the data must be updated.

And possibly if they are using different logins for each TV you could look at Row Level Security.

Re: How To Display on a TV?

Hello there. Every area here have their own source some from sql others from excel, they update their data at least two times per day,morning and at the end of the day. In my case i need the data fresh on tv no matter the time they updated their data. So i created a panel where they can publish their data. But to have it fresh on tv i do not have any idea. What can i do?

Re: How To Display on a TV?

I forgot my boss idea is to see the dash board like a video or just like a power point moving across every page. So im gonna have at least five or more different dash boards of several areas in one presentacion like video moving across every one.

Hi there

 

What you can do is to have each dashboard and then use a Google Add In like Revolver which scrolls through alll the open tabs.

 

This can all be running at full screen so that it moves thorugh them each and every time on a defined schedule?

Re: How To Display on a TV?

Thank you pal for your suporting i have found a solution using a programm named dashboard rotator is simple to use and practical. All i need to do is to paste every url on that programm and it does the rest. Have a good day.

@GilbertQ  does it matter which method you use in the background to update the data ie. direct query or scheduled updates ?
