Widget auto refresh query

Simple question. In the example below, I have selected to auto refresh every 1 month. My question is, when in that month will it refresh? One month from the date I have set it, or (as I suspect) the first day of the month? Thanks' for taking the time to answer a (probable) "Duh!!!" question.

Hi Nick,

It will refresh 1 month from when it is rendered in dashboard. Widgets get data in real time at the point of rendering and then when refreshing. If you close dashboard and 1 day later run it again the widget will re-render and again wait 1 month to refresh. So basically you would need to keep your dashboard running without closing it for over a month to then see the widget refresh.

Hope that makes sense.

Cheers

Thanks @neilwj.

 It does make sense, not what I expected at all. I think I'll set it to daily. Viewers of that widget are expecting it to refresh at the start of the month, and that's not going to happen with those constants; at least refreshing daily it will be.

 

Thanks again for answering the question so promptly.
