How do I get the auto-refresh app?

I have a dashboard that is based on a summary sheet that has summary data based on a cell that has today's date. In order for the dashboard to update to today's data I have to open the sheet and refresh it. I don't want users of the dashboard to have access to the summary sheet.

I assume the auto-refresh app will help.

    Hi @Sissy.Jones

    As far as I know, there isn’t an auto-refresh app from Smartsheet.

    Where did you read/hear about it?

    There are some other workarounds.

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

  • I found it in this thread. https://community.smartsheet.com/discussion/70447/auto-refresh

    But I assume the poster is not with SmartSheet.

    @Sissy.Jones

    Yes, that's correct. I am, and they are Smartsheet Partners, so it's probably excellent, but I haven't tested it.

    Some other 3rd party options/workarounds like Zapier and copy row combined with cross-sheet formulas (untested) could also work.

    Would any of those options work?

  • @Andrée Starå I'm not that savvy with applying 3rd party apps. I looked at the link you provided for Zapier, but I am not sure how to find the function I need and implement it.

    Also, I'm not sure what copy row combined with cross-sheet formulas would look like.
