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. Native Mobile App

    A native mobile app would improve using Initial State on a mobile device. The mobile-reactive website is fantastic, but I'd like to see more features built for mobile

      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.

      • Create a custom tile view with data from different buckets

        Maybe it would be good to be able to create a custom tile view with tiles from different bucket feeds.

        • Simple Controls Tile

          Would you consider a couple of simple control tiles?

          Toggle Button Control. Provide a visual representation of a toggle button, allow the user to select and have it toggle. Each toggle would timestamp the event. Provide a HTTP GET to allow for the reading of the latest value and timestamp of the toggle button.

          Slider: Provide a visual representation of a slider with the ability to define min/max/step/[horizontal|vertical] values. Allow a user to move the slider and timestamp the settled on value. Provide a HTTP GET to allow for the reading of the latest value and timestamp of the slider.

                    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).

                      • Provide secondary Y-axis for dissimilar signals

                        For both Lines and Tiles... Provide a secondary Y-axis so signals with dissimilar values (such as a freezer with temperatures around 0, and power/wattage which exceeds 100), so one value doesn't get overshadowed by the other.

                        • Trigger on no data received

                          Add a new Trigger when data not received for stream key within a period of time.

                          For example, send an SMS or email when <Stream Key> has not been received for <X>mins (or <Y>hrs).

                          This would be useful for background performance monitoring.

                          • Ability to send configuration back to the device

                            Field entry tiles on the Events screen... boolean switch, dropdowns, fields etc.

                            As the iot device executes a push event, it receives a return object which contains these parameters.

                            Use these to remotely change device parameters, reconfigure, enter different behaviour modes etc.

                                        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.
