Chatter Desktop Polling intervals
|Knowledge Article Number||000004672|
Currently Chatter Desktop polls for new feed information every 4 minutes when it is the active window. If the Window is inactive it polls every 5 minutes. If the local system is detected as idle (no keyboard or user activity) polling is suspended until activity is detected on the local machine. Polling intervals may be changed by salesforce with subsequent releases of the Chatter Desktop client.
