Excel Source Data Load

Hi,

In Qlik Sense, is it possible to automatically reload a dashboard (with Excel data source) whenever a change has been made within the Excel spreadsheet?  Or do I have to manually re-upload the Excel spreadsheet every time a change is made?

If you are using the server edition you can schedule your reload tasks to a regular frequency desktop you have to reload yourself.

I am using the server edition. 

So if I create a scheduled reload task, and I change data within the source data > excel spreadsheet, will the dashboard recognize it and reload the new data from Excel?

Yes assuming your sheet structure hasn't changed and its just you've added more data to it.
