How to make real-time data update (without Refresh button)

Hello, I have JSON file on my server and get data from it to the table with Repeating group. Can I make bubble pick up data from my json file on server and change it in the table every 3 minutes for example, without using refresh button in browser?

you can probably do this with scheduled workflow, or a zapier/integromat zap/scenario that runs every 3 minutes. By default, data on the screen updates immediately when it’s updated in the bubble database.

ah, right. What about a workflow on the element? There is a “do every 5 seconds” workflow at the page level.

So you need to have something different in your API Call.
