Dashboard 2, changes in one viewer not reflected in another

If I have a Text In or Dropdown widget configured and view the dashboard on two machines (or even two tabs in the same browser) and then enter new text and/or select a different dropdown value in one, then the other browser does not reflect the update. If I refresh the page then it does update.

I imagine the same issue is present for other widgets.

Is this expected behaviour?

I was using the wrong tag for D2, so have corrected it.

Hmm, that's an interesting one that I actually don't think the Events Architecture I have accounts for, my thinking is that it will corectly update anything after the modified widget, but not the widget itself.

In D1, normally all viewers see the same information (unless the flow uses the socket id to prevent this).
