I had a custom website built months ago that ran on a SmartTV as an info kiosk (Running webpage in Chrome kiosk mode). It was coded to refresh every 10 mins and pull info from an Access database.
Then the IT department decided we can't do that anymore. They removed Chrome from all systems (so that we can't use apps), blacklisted my website and then locked both the SmartTV and computer from getting internet access ugh!!
I was told to use a looping PowerPoint presentation (boring!). I need to show current data pulled from my MS Access database and PowerPoint has to be opened/closed to refresh links. I asked IT if they could make a batch file to open/close the presentation and they said no that it violated IT policy. I don't even have access to the cmd prompt or powershell. :(
There is a third party program called DataPoint designed to do what I want but guess what? Nope! We can't use it. It's not approved by IT and we have no admin rights to install any third party solution to help with this.
Does anybody have another solution? Maybe use VBA to refresh the PowerPoint links?
