How to know when KPI updates?

Path Finder

I am trying to add a "time last updated" field in my beta Glass Table, but I do not know how to access the exact time that a KPI updates. I have them set to update every 15 minutes, but that is really all I have to go on right now, it seems.
I have read that they also stagger by default, but as long as I can get the time the first one updates, that should be good.
Please let me know if there are any solutions you know of! Thanks

Hi Logan, this sounds like a question of whether a KPI keeps the timestamp of its last update somewhere. And I haven’t seen that. I would guess that we don’t keep it directly, but there might be some trick to infer that from the search job info. The search job has info about when it was dispatched. But to find a search job from a KPI should be pretty hard if possible.
