When did the update happen?


#1

Hello everyone, good morning!

How to display update date / time on a dashboard?
This is important information to show, as it tells the manager when the data was last updated.

Hug to everyone!

Just create a custom question with SELECT GetDate() or similar depending upon your database:

Hi @AndrewMBaines
I want to display this information when the dashboard is updated,
when we put “# refresh = 120” in the dashboard URL.

Note: “# refresh = 120” will refresh the dashboard every 2 minutes.


Problems Incorporating Dashboards

Create a question with my query, then add the question to the dashboard. It will update each time the dashboard is refreshed.


#5

Okay, and if the panel contains questions from several different databases (MYSQL, ORACLE, MSSQL…), will it work anyway?


#6

It’s just showing the date/time when the SELECT GETDATE() ran. If your queries are cached or very slow, the time will be out a bit.

OK,
Thank you very much for your attention.
Metabase is awesome!

Hello, I returned

You need this label in this position.
To display when the panel was last updated. How to decrease the font size of this question? Not found this option.


#9

You can’t, it’s a limitation of metabase. You can change the format.


#10

I understand, however, I opened a request to Metabase to think about it.

There’s two issues discussing this - go and upvote by clicking :+1: on the first post

Question: Where did you “open a request” ?


#12

It was at: https://www.metabase.com/services/


Metabase has everything to become a rougher Analytics tool, but some adjustments are missing.
Starting today I will always be an enthusiast of this tool.

Thank you!

Okay, that page is not for requests. That’s for buying services - like paid support or professional help.

This forum is for questions, troubleshooting and other general inquiries - usually user-to-user support.
The Github page is for bugs and feature requests.

If you’re unsure what to use, then use the forum to start with.

Okay, thanks a lot for the tip.
Have a great weekend.
