The refresh interval is specified in seconds. A value of '0' disables the refresh.
For example, a refresh interval of 30 would refresh every 30 seconds whereas a refresh interval of 1800 would refresh every 30 minutes (1800 seconds)
The refresh interval is especially helpful for 'static' images (JPG, PNG) which show a new snapshot or image periodically
Create Media Item
At this point, your media item is created and its properties are stored in the SharpTools database. In order to use the media item on a dashboard, refer to the following section.
Use Media in a Dashboard
Once you have created a media tile, you'll likely want to use it in a dashboard. In order to do this, we can either modify an existing dashboard or create a new one.
Login to your account if you are not already logged in
Click the Dashboards link from the top navigation bar
On mobile devices, this option will be available from the left navigation as Tiles Dashboard
If you would like to use an existing dashboard, select the dashboard and skip to step 6
Scroll to the bottom of the list and click the "Create Dashboard" button
Enter a name for the dashboard and click Create
Click the `...` menu in the bottom right-corner of the page to open the menu
Select the 'Edit' option (pencil icon)
Click the green `+` icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen
Select your media item from the Media section of the Add Item window
As you click on each media item, the tile is added to your dashboard in the background
If you accidentally add an item more than once, you can remove it before you save the dashboard (see step 11)
Optionally, select any other Things or Media items you would like to add to the dashboard and click Done
If you would like to make any adjustments to the layout of the dashboard, you can drag items into different positions or tap the `...` drop-down in the top-right corner of each tile to edit it (if available) or delete it
Click the orange 'save' icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen to save your dashboard changes
Use Media Tile in Dashboard
At this point you should have a working dashboard with your media tile on it! Check out the help site for more articles or visit the community to share your dashboard or get inspiration from the community.
