Hi all when I publish a Google Docs text file onto the web, it is set to update automatically every 5 minutes.

I would like it to refresh itself more frequently.

I was wondering is there anyway to set it to refresh at a shorter interval, like 3 minutes (or every minute if possible) ?

Setting the refresh rate to a custom time interval does not seem to be supported at this time.

You could check the Google Docs Product Ideas to see if anyone has suggested this feature. If no one has suggested it, you should just submit it as an feature idea.
