  1. Deleting individual data points inside a bucket

    This request comes from an issue of sometimes a multisensor in my Home Automation System sends out a crazy wild erroneous reading and it then totally throws of the charting/graph visual.

    Would be nice to be able to delete single data points or a group/chunk of data points inside of a bucket for times like this. Thanks!

      Real-time expressions provide the ability to filter out unwanted data points and data ranges in Tiles and Waves (http://support.initialstate.com/knowledgebase/articles/1093294-real-time-expressions-filter-out-unwanted-data).

      For accounts that do not have real-time expressions, you can set the min/max y-axis for line graphs and min/max range for gauge views to prevent an erroneous data point from dominating the view in Tiles. See http://support.initialstate.com/knowledgebase/articles/871260-tiles-set-line-view-min-and-or-max-y-axis for details.

    • 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.

      • 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).

        • 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.

          • View Timestamp of cursor location when mousing over Tile

            I would like the ability to see the timestamp of the cursor's location when mousing over a visualization in Tiles. This would allow me to see both the current value of the cursor for that stream as well as the timestamp associated with that event value.

                • 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.

                                  (you have to reflect the changes on the sensors, that's ok)

                                    • Allow for a stream to be defined as the result of an expression where the input could be other stream values.

                                      I have a use case, where I am collecting to values, but what I would like to display is actually the result of something like:

                                      virtual stream = (2*value1 + value2 ) / 3

                                      • 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.

                                          Currently one tile is automatically created per data item. It will be useful to create multiple tiles with same data. The purpose is to have different views (Line, Gauge etc..) for same data item.
