  1. 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.

      • Plan between $5/month and $25/month

        It would be nice to have a plan between standard and pro that offered the more advanced data tools included in pro but without the external services like sms and embedding. I would love to be able to use real-time expressions and import log data via the web app but its a pretty large jump from $60 to $300 per year.

        • Calculate Delta Between Values

          I have a signal (kWh) that continues to grow over time (ex. 1000, 1025, 1078, 1090). I want to see its change in a line graph or other view. Provide a tile that calculates the change between values (ex. 25, 53, 12).

          • Multiple temperature sensors (DS18B20) graphed from one Pi

            I'm wanting to have multiple temperature sensors from one Pi sending temperature readings to one graph. This will create a graph with a number of lines showing the trend for the different sensors.

            • Process Capability Values (Cp, Cpk, Ppk)

              Preferably under Tiles, but potentially under Waves or Lines, it would be very powerful to have be able to review a range of data and apply process capability statistics. Specifically:
              - Cp, Cpk, Ppk,

              Basics like standard deviation, mean, etc. would also be helpful.

                • Scaling and Virtual Streams

                  Add the ability for a virtual data stream to be calculated from one of more real the data streams.

                  Also allow the ability to apply scaling factors for display purposes.

                  Scaling factor should be able to applied in multiple ways (add, subtract, divide, multiply).

                  Example 1: Scaled data
                  Virtual Stream Key = Real Stream Key <+ OR - OR x or /> Scaling Factor

                  Example 2: Summed data channels
                  Virtual Stream Key = Real Stream Key 1 <+ OR - OR x or /> Real Stream Key 2

                      You can override the timestamp when you submit data. This will allow you to submit data with the actual timestamp it was taken (e.g. in the past). You can see details of the API at http://support.initialstate.com/knowledgebase/articles/590091-how-to-stream-events-via-restful-api. The timestamp can be in either ISO8601 format or epoch.

                      If you wanted to create a Python script that reads CSV data and streams it into a data bucket (so you can append this data bucket with live, real-time data), you can use a script like the one at https://github.com/InitialState/python_appender/blob/master/example_app/example_read_csv.py

                      You can stream in data with older timestamps at anytime into a data bucket and it will automatically be ordered correctly. 

                    • make it useful!

                      There is a lot of noise in real scientific data. We usually filter them out, postmortem (which means the poor undergrad will do it). So, let her/him do it online.

                          • Set Bucket Load Timespan

                            It would be very useful to set a specific timespan of data to load when opening a bucket. This would prevent my larger, longer running buckets from continuing to load historical data that's not relevant most of the time for my visualization and analysis.

                            • Bucket specific data rentention policies

                              To speed up historical analysis it would be great if it was possible to define a data retention policy on bucket level.

                              E.g. I've chosen to send a number of events every 5 seconds to get real time feedback from my tiles. However, I really don't need more than perhaps one set of events per 2 minutes in order to perform historical analysis of the data. Hence, if I could define some policy that would keep all the data from the last hour and after that only per 2 minutes, digging into the history would be a lot faster and…

                                I also requested for it. But if we may get the average value of a recorded data set it could be nice.
                                (for examle: we have 4 record 10 12 13 11, i need a gauge which gives the average of these vaules (10+12+13+11)/4 then we get a new record 12, our data set will become, 10 12 13 11 12, the average is (10+12+13+11+12)/5)

                                • Add expressions' feature as a signal key in tiles

                                  The new tiles configuration options are really good improvement!
                                  Have you thought of adding the possibility to add in the Tiles view in the signal key input box a signal with origin from the expressions' feature?
                                  That is, a user would be able to convert its device signal to something more user friendly and then track it on the tiles view too.
                                  For example, with my Thingsee device when measuring the battery level I receive a binary value, "0" or "1", but I would like to see on the tiles section an "On" or "Off" value instead.

                                      • Conditional formatting of a tile

                                        It would be helpful if a tile could display color or change format based on the data received. A simple example may be for a Last Value tile to be red if a value is below a range, yellow if in a range and Green when above a range. Or, perhaps two events are sent to the bucket, one event is the value displayed and the second event is the condition for formatting.
