Feature Requests

Please be as descriptive as possible! We rely on community submitted ideas and feedback to drive our product roadmap, so if you want the idea considered and voted on, make sure you provide use-cases! Enjoy! :)

What would you like to see next?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Can we internationalise the Date Format

    I'm in the UK and we use a the dd/mm/yyyy format for dates. Currently the platform defaults to mm/dd/yyyy format.

    It would be great to get the ability to choose you're localisation settings.

    • The ability to view multiple buckets simultaneously

      I have a number of buckets. I would like to be able to compare data from several buckets at the same time. Perhaps by allowing me to select multiple buckets on the left pane at the same time.

          • 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.

            • 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.

                • Delete Bucket Data

                  Hi,

                  I have only been at this a few hours and already have some 1000+ data points in my bucket and, unless I have missed the obvious, I cannot delete the bucket contents.

                  What I would like to see is a simple way of clearing the bucket contents.

                  I have read the other suggestion and it would appear that you can threshhold your data before it is uploaded but this is not what I'm after.

                  Alternatively, place the latest data entry at the top of the list and not at the bottom. At the moment I have to scroll through…

                  • Fullscreen Option

                    There should be an option to fullscreen the views for display on a kiosk screen of sorts. Essentially, what there is now would be fine, just take out the edit button or possibly even make a "view only" link to work this way.

                    • 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.

                        Make it possible to group streams into categories in order to make dashboards more readable. Also provide the option to give names (titles) to these groups.

                        • 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.

                                • "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.

                                      • 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.
