Description

Currently, the eLog doesn't update if in the background/minimized/ect. I assume this is from a performance rationing point of view. However, if you minimize the eLog and then someone makes a note, there's no way to tell the note was made when you minimize the window.

In the current (read: old) eLog the Current/Update button serves this purpose, with it turning yellow when there is an update available. One could preform similar constant polling in the background and change the refresh image/text/ect.

Alternatively (if JavaScript allows) it would be much more cleaver to refresh the eLog on page activation. That is when the user un-minimizes or clicks back to the tab the eLog is in it automatically refreshes itself with the current content, then resumes the normal active refreshing. This scheme would be my preferred behavior while still reducing server polling while the eLog is not being looked at.
