Is there a web-part, or some way of forcing a page to auto-reload/refresh, at a given interval - say every 5mins?

Thanks

  • Most people have their PCs on our intranet page open. They forget to CTRL-F5 their browsers. We put up news items that simply don't get displayed in real-time – Fandango68 Mar 28 at 2:33

There is no readymade webpart for this, however, an easy way out would be to add a script editor web part and add a reload script

<script>
window.addEventListener("onload",reloadInFive);

function reloadInFive(){
 setTimeout(function(){
   window.location.reload();
 },30000);
}
<script>

Once you test it, you could publish this webparts dwp file in the web parts gallery
