Overriding Dashboard or Report Scheduling limitations



I need to create a dashboard (or report graph) that will be displayed on a large flat-screen monitor for the entire office.


I need the underlying report to be refreshed every hour. Unfortunately, SF limits auto refresh of dashboards or reports to once a day.


Has anyone tried to override this by writing Apex / VF code to display the dashboard or report graph and refresh it every hour? Does it work? Any other ideas for getting this done reliably?


Thanks in advance!

Hey, Recently charting feature is been added in visualforce page. You can try builting dashboards using it in visualforce page.

And for auto refreshing every hour you can use apex:actionpoller tag in your page.
