Hi, My reporting are caching I think which is ok if data doesn't change, but at this time of the year, data is changing every hour, so is there an option to 'force refresh' the report from the browser, so report will refresh the data ?

Here is the call to my report:

  $report = new PlannerGoals();
                $report->run();
                return view("report",["report"=>$report]);

Here is the view:

 Table::create(array(
            "dataSource" => $this->dataStore("PlannerGoalsFile"),
                    "searching"=>true,
            "fixedHeader"=>true,
                "showHeader"=>true,
                "showFooter"=>"bottom",
            "columns" => array(
                "name",
... columns

here is the report class:

   $this->src('mysql')->query($PlannerGoalsFileQuery)
              ->pipe(new CalculatedColumn(array(
                     "TotalEst"=>function($data){
                         return ( $data["ETPlannerEst"]+$data["ETQuoterEst"]);
                     },
                 )))
            ->pipe($this->dataStore('PlannerGoalsFile'));

Note: I am using

use Friendship;
    use \koolreport\amazing\Theme;

I have not added any cache feature intentionally. thanks

Hi Paulo,

Which PHP framework are you using together with KoolReport? Thanks!

paulo commented on Mar 17

Laravel. Thank you

it seems it fixed itself somehow ? I don't see it's being cached now. Not sure if the reboot fixed or not.

Hi Paulo,

If this issue somehow happens again, please try clearing Laravel's cache like this:

Thanks!

thank you. I do that when deploying the app only. I was trying to find a way of adding a button and clicking on 'refresh' , but that is ok. I will monitor for now and let you know. thank you very much for getting back!
