      Hello Mohsen,

      There is an option to Reimport your data to the dataset which you must have created following the content of this blog.

      You can go to your story -> edit -> Select Data -> Select the data set you want to update -> Select Reimport data option from the toolbar above .

      Hope this solves your case of updating your dashboard every month.
