You now have the ability to automatically update SPICE (Super-fast, Parallel, In-memory, Calculation, Engine) datasets in Amazon QuickSight based on a schedule. You can specify the Time Zone, the Time of Day, the Frequency (Daily, Weekly, or Monthly), and the Starting Date for your SPICE dataset refresh. This capability eliminates the manual process of updating SPICE datasets and allows you to easily share dashboards with up-to-date information. Scheduled refresh is now available in Amazon QuickSight for all supported AWS, cloud and on-premises data sources, for both new and existing datasets in all regions. For more information, see the AWS Big Data Blog post on Scheduled Refresh.
