The iDashboards SugarCRM connection uses a third party application to sync the data of SugarCRM back to a database. When properly configured the sync application will allow you to sync the data as frequently as every 15 minutes. This will allow your iDashboards application the ability to display the data from your SugarCRM application.
The document that is available below will walk you through the setup process of the CDATA Sync application.
