Do you know how to make the SharePoint refresh automatically.  I am not an expert in SharePoint and we have a signout sheet that needs to be refreshed automatically like the old sharepoint site used too.

sorry but I do not understand your question.
What do you mean with "signout sheet"?
What should be refreshed?

What kind of authentication do you use?
Has the SharePoint farm being upgraded from an older version?
Which SharePoint edition (foundation, server standard, enterprise)?

Could you perhaps attach (anonymized / scrabbled) screenshot(s)?

The signout sheet is where our employees go to sign out for the day and insert a reason and a return time or date.  The old SharePoint refreshed every 30 seconds.  The refresh is for the secretary to view when answering phone.

The old sharepoint did this and was on the terminal server.  The new sharepoint site is on the Domain.

I sounds as if there is an auto refresh on the page the secretary was viewing, not the entire SharePoint. You can add that to the new SharePoint, or more accurately to the page the secretary is viewing from the new SharePoint.

You can add the web part directly in to the Rich Content section of your page.
