Dashboard doesnt update visuals

I have a dashboard that I published a week ago from my report in the desktop app. It refreshes completly fine and all of the data changes. However, since I published it I have changed one of the visuals and added a page to the report. The dashboard does not show either of these updates even after doing manual refreshes. Maybe it needs to be published exactly how it will look but I feel like this should automatically update. Am I doing anything wrong or how can I fix this? 

Thank you

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

To my knowledge, if you change the visualization type in the report after you pinned it to your dashboard, the dashboard tile does not automatically update

 

When you pin an entire page, the tiles are live. That is, you can interact with them there on the dashboard. Changes you make to any of the visualizations in the report editor, like adding a filter or changing the fields used in the chart, are reflected in the dashboard tile as well.

 

After the dataset is refreshed, the dashboard tiles will be basiclly refreshed within 15 minutes. You can also force tile refresh by selecting Refresh dashboard tiles.

I have a dashboard with a tile visualization that won't update, while the others are updating.  Each week I go into the dataset. refresh it and change a filter date on that visual.  I save and publish it.  All of the other tiles update, except the one I changed the filter date.  I end up having to re-pin it.  You mentioned forcing a tile refresh, but I do not see this option?  Will this resolve it? and if so, where do I find this?

If i  i understand what you saying - You create a dashboard, which you published and since then the data refresh is fine.

 

After that you added a page and some other visuals to the report.   If you added a new page you will need to repin that page.
