Is there a particular update interval google calendar is updating at? I am curious how long after making a change I should see the change in the display. Is there a place to modify this setting? If we would like to see it update faster?

Hello,

There isn't the ability to modify the refresh interval on the calendar widget.  That's a great suggestion though.   Currently, it's set to update every 5 minutes.

if the calendar is not updating after 5 mins, are there any options to update the presentation, i.e. adding to the head <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="350">

You can sure try that but I'm not certain what your results would be.  If you do try it could you post back here your results?

There are some other thing that folks have tried that you can read about in this thread: https://community.risevision.com/rise_vision_inc/topics/google-calendar-not-updating-after-event-tim...

/bumping this because we'd also like to have the ability to set/force a refresh. Currently, I've got two machines that appear to randomly stop updating.

Dan,

I've converted this to an idea, so be sure to vote for it if you want this functionality in the Widget.

Regarding the two machines that appear to stop updating, are you referring to the Calendar Widget in those Presentations?

We have this happen as well- I am not sure if its the widget or the presentation that stops responding. But the calendar will be stuck on the day befores information. Even though our box's power cycle each night. It doesnt happen alot but, a power cycle always fixs it and that's what I typically do.

Arthur, Dan,

Can I ask you to email a link to your Presentation to support@risevision.com so we can investigate?

Thanks!
