How to load data in automatic way every time I open an QlikSense app.

I'm new on Qlik Sense, I had the conection to Progress Data Base and I saw the chart perfectly, but In order to see the chart I need to load the data every time I need to see the chart. My question is there any way to load the data in automatic way every time I open the app.  I will appreciate your response.

Good Morning.

What I did was to créate a trigger in order to reaload the data.

This trigger is tied to the application that needs to be reloaded.

I put the option to reload every  2 hours and Works perfectly.

Hope this help on the future.

Regards.

hi

after a reload make sure you save your app

you don't need to reload data every time

unless you mean that you want to fetch new data everytime

from your question i assume you use qlik sense desktop

you can't auto-reload qlik sense desktop for this you'll need qlik sense enterprise

Yes, I want to fetch the data every time the end users open the App.

And I would like to have updated the charts at all.

Thanks for your support.

I don't think it is possible to trigger a reload when the user opens the App.  You can trigger data reloads on a timed schedule (at a set time each day/week/month) or you can trigger them based on completion of another data reload (eg. if you want an app to reload only after a preceding app like an app that creates a calendar QVD reloads), but I don't think it is possible to trigger based on user input at this time.

I'm working on a dashboard for colleagues that are NOT developers.  I was looking for an easy way for the users to refresh the data and found this refresh button plugin:   http://branch.qlik.com/#!/project/56728f52d1e497241ae69836‌ . 

It may be an easy (but not perfect) way to get users to refresh with minimal instructions.  I also included a KPI on the dashboard that shows, "Last Updated mm/dd/yy" and colored the date red when mm/dd/yy was less than today.  Hopefully this will prompt them to hit the REFRESH button.
