Hello Lloyd,

Could you please be a little more specific regarding the scenario? There are a lot of things that should be taken into account like:

  • What data source components are being used to feed data to those tables and charts? Are report parameters used?
  • Is the report being displayed in a report viewer?
  • How often does the data need to be updated?

Generally, if you display the reports in a report viewer, the HTML5-based Report Viewers have methods that can cause the Report Server to re-process and re-render reports for preview - refreshReport().

If the reports are to be sent to users you may try to use Data Alerts - Data Alerts Management. A Data Alert runs at a scheduled time and checks whether specific data conditions are satisfied. If the data conditions are satisfied a report document or a collection of reports documents are generated and sent to the alert's subscribers. A data alert can be run only once or on a recurrent basis, for example: daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly. Within the recurrence rule, you set the intervals and range for how often a data alert is to be run.

If you need further help, please be more specific regarding the scenario and the requirements for it. Thank you for using Telerik Report Server!
