Google Sheets Slow to Update

Recommended Posts

I have a page which I let the user complete a form which then stores the data in a Google Sheet.  That works great.  On the same page I display the same Google Sheet by embedding the google sheet in a code block.  The problem is that after the user submits the form it doesn't immediately show in the embedded Google sheet.  It takes maybe 1 or 2 minutes later then it shows.

Is there anyway to force SP to update the page immediately or more frequently?

The page is -->https://www.phgagolf.com/spring-scramble

You can go ahead and click and complete a Join Event and observe the delay between the completion of the form and the update to the embedded google sheet a minute or two later by refreshing the page

That's what I thought. Google says shared html and csv sheets are updated in 5 min, I do not think there is a way to force this unless use their API, but that's sure far more complex than pasting an embed code to Code block.
