1. Use a batch file / Command Line controlled by Windows Scheduler every hour.
2. For an all internal Qlikview method I've used a timed switch between 2 sheets ie: if the time is anything other than on the hour exactly Sheet A displays but for the second of on the hour Sheet B appears and there's a reload Action launched by an OnActivate Sheet Trigger. I've used this for QV docs published via a live PowerPoint link on information screens - cycle through tabs every 30 seconds and after each cycle do a silent reload to keep the data 'Live'.
Thanks for your response, I am brand new at this !!!
I have a Qlikview doc that has 5 sheets , its loaded in only from Excel files ( we are new to Qlikview and are waiting to get database access!!)
Basically, we would like as live a feed as possible onto the Qlikview dashboard , presently every hour or so I am ( as the main administrator!!!) literally just pressing the Reload Icon to refresh the data. I'd like to avoid having to do that !!!
Can you give me some more informationas to how I can maybe apply any of your options above ?
Open the application on QlikView Desktop. Go to Settings-> Document Properties -> Server -> "Refresh Mode when Document is Updated on Server" Set this to "Server performs refresh automatically without clients action"
