Auto Refresh Dashboards

I have searched everywhere and am unable to find a solution for this.  We are using Odoo 8 solely for project management.  I would like to display an auto-refreshing dashboard of our current projects and gantt chart to our staff on a big TV in the office.  So I have 2 questions on this.  Can I setup a dashboard to auto-refresh when status/hours/projects change?  Also, can I remove the menu on the top and side so it runs full screen?  Can this be controlled for example through a querystring command?

My url at the moment looks like this: http://<webaddresshere>:8069/web#view_type=form&model=board.board&menu_id=96&action=88

Axel, thanks for the suggestion.  I have installed the module but it is not refreshing anything on the dashboard.  My board has 4 panels - gantt for tasks for user A, gantt for tasks for user B, list of open and pending projects for user A, and list of open and pending projects for user B.  I have set auto_refresh to 10 for window actions for: My Dashboard, Tasks (there were 2 actions so I set for both), Project's Tasks, Projects (there were 2 actions also so I set for both).  What am I missing??

I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

You could do it by using the module solt_autorefresh like it's described here:


just install the module and make sure that all the actions used in the dashboard have the auto_refresh value setted

AFAIK odoo does not have a native asynchronous communication mechanism, which is what you would need to implement something like this. However, you can probably implement it yourself using jobs from the connector framework: https://github.com/OCA/connector
