    • Regular Expression Statistics

      Would you possibly consider adding the ability to calculate averages and standard deviations from regular expressions? This would allow the calculations of Z scores for signals on the fly - whilst knowing an average is great, knowing that the current value is significantly different to average is useful too! Thanks! :)

        • "Show Events Since" based on submitted epoch rather than date sent to IS

          Currently, in Advanced Settings, the "Show Events Since" is based on the date/time the data point is uploaded to IS, not based on the time/date stamp sent with the datapoint. This matters when the datapoint is sent at a later time than the datapoint was created. It would be helpful to see events since a time aligned with the uploaded epoch field.

          • Free support via email or chat for the free tier

            Just what it says, I got stuck and all your support choices are is just to look at the documentation, which doesn't have anything about what my symptoms are. If you can't offer free support via email or chat, then please consider a user forum where we can bounce problems off each other.

            • Changeable Time Zone

              Allow the data in the visualization apps to be shown in a user-specified timezone other than the browser's default. Additionally, allow this feature in the raw data view as well.

                • Ability to annotate data in lines or waves

                  A way to add notes to data streams. Adding a text box that is linked to a certain time in a certain data stream. Finance.google.com has this where they have little lettered flags in the charts, and on the side they have news items related to the flags.

                  • Copy Data Streams from Different Buckets into Other Buckets

                    I want to add tiles from different buckets to create a Master control panel. In this panel I could see alarms at a high level and then select the necessary bucket to see details. In other words, I want to be able to copy data streams from different buckets into another bucket.

                    • Sort "Source" in chronological order

                      The "Source" view should be sorted in chronological order.
                      For a list of 1 through n rows, it appears to be adding new rows at the top (at 1) most of the time, but when I have the InitialState app open, it adds new rows at the bottom (at n). The end result is that the chronological sort is broken.

                      • Deleting a bucket should free up the bucket_key used to create it

                        I want the ability to delete a bucket and reuse the bucket_key of that deleted bucket to create a new bucket.

                        I understand that bucket_keys are unique per access_key (currently) but when I delete a bucket, I want to be able to use the same key again to create a new bucket.

                        • Simplify searches about your service

                          Find yourself a nickname for initial state, searching for a topic about you on google is like searching a car company named car, you can never get a good result.

                          • Provide Web Inerface Options to 3rd party Applications/Websites

                            It would be great if Iniital State can provide licensed software to allow websites and applications to use the visualization engine on their websites, to view data streams owned by 3rd party.
