Faster refresh rate than 60 sec?

Hello.  I have a followup to this question that has been asked in various ways.  In terms of refreshing content, are there any plans to have a faster refresh rate option for those organizations needing to display content (either a photo, text bulletin, or google spreadsheet cell/range) which needs to be updated more quickly than 60 seconds?

We have a custom lobby ticketing solution running through Google App Script and Sheets to call our next waiting client and it can't wait 60 sec between polls.

I really like Risevision, but this is one requirement that we may need to switch display platforms if only limited to 60 sec refresh.

Thank you all for your development and support.

Hi Kevin,

Can I assume that you're using the Web Page Widget to display this content, and have it set to refresh every 60 seconds? If that is the case, I don't believe there are plans to allow the web page widget to refresh more often than 60 seconds.

We have just introduced the Google Spreadsheet Component which you can set to refresh in whatever timeframe you wish. It's a little more technical to get set up, but I believe it will serve the purpose that you're asking for. The contributors to that article should be able to answer any questions you have.

Thank you Blake for the response.  If the Google Spreadsheet component can refresh more quickly, that would work.  I was under the impression that the overall system had a 60sec limit regardless of the component's capability.

I'll search for guidance on the spreadsheet widget, but if anyone reading this has specifics on the technical piece of getting it to run, it would be great to get pointed in the right direction.

Kevin,

For the spreadsheet component, it would probably be best to ask the questions within the thread that I linked. Those guys are the experts on it, they created it! :)
