I have a chrome tab with a website that contains a table that changes dinamically without refreshing the page. I want to detect a specified word, checking every 5 seconds, without refreshing the page.
More specifically, I’m trying to detect a player’s name here, without refreshing the page every 5 seconds.
Is it possible? How should I configure Distill?
Thanks in advance.

You should be able to monitor an auto updating page using “Live” schedule. For live monitors, Distill will keep a pinned tab open and observe it for changes. As soon a change is observed within the selected parts of the page, it is recorded as a change.
You can use the following steps:
- Select all of the tables in the page. If you are only interested in the names, following CSS selector can be used to select all of them in one shot:
- Save the selection in the visual selector
- Options page should open. Change schedule to “Live”. By default it is set to Interval.
- If needed, add a condition:
text has <key phrase>
Try it out and let me know if you need any help.
