Leave Request App



I'm trying to create leave request, for my apps I have 2 screen (dashboard and request), I trying to show leave balance for each user and their request status on the dashboard page.


My question is: Is any way to set auto update for leave balance on the dashboard after user submit request and it's got approved.


Thanks for your help.

If your app is connected to a data source, then it will automatically get the latest data from it and show the approved requests.


But I'm assuming you're looking for something that feels more Live, which means users should be able to see that their request got approved without reloading the app. You can try one of the solutions below,

  1. Provide a refresh Icon on dashboard and on the OnSelect property, use a Refresh function to get latest data. Also make sure to reinitialize your collections to keep them updated

  2. Use a timer (for x seconds/minutes) and use it to refresh the data source after certain intervals.
    Make sure to set the AutoStart property to true, Duration to your preferred interval, and the visible property of timer control to false to hide it. In the onTimerEnd or OnTimerStart use your refresh functions.

You can implement the same in many other ways, depending on your preference, like the user changes a filter or transitions between screens etc.,


Hope this helps 🙂
