  1. Timeline bar showing selected day/time

    When dragging the timeline bar in Tiles view, it would be great if the bar showed the day/time associated with the position of the mouse (i.e. in the same way that a cursor shows the date/time when being dragged).
    We could then display data between specific times more accurately.

    • Ability to compare the same data point for two different time spans.

      Provide the ability to compare the same data point against itself for a different time. For example, compare the temperature from 9am to 5pm today against the same temperature for yesterday from 9am to 5pm, or energy usage for today compared to the same day last year. This would apply at least to lines and waves.

        Tiles Timeline has been updated with new features that include showing selected day/time as well as the ability to compare two specified time periods. See http://support.initialstate.com/knowledgebase/articles/780828-tiles-comparing-two-time-periods for details.

        Waves has also been updated to allow comparison of two specified time periods. See http://support.initialstate.com/knowledgebase/articles/780870-waves-comparing-two-time-periods for details.

      • Integrate with Particle.io: https://www.particle.io/

        Particle.io (was Spark.io) has PHOTON, a WIFI-Arduino IoT.
        They already have a "cloud" service to capture data from each device, as well as push technology to control and instruct devices from anywhere in the world.
        2G/3G version is on its way, and a partner is doing Bluetooth.
        Definitely a quick way to get started with visualizing data.

          1 comment  ·  Events Api  ·  Admin →

          This integration is actually supported and used by some of our users. While it’s not a simple integration that can be enabled from Initial State’s own application, it is enabled by particle.io’s webhook implementation. By designing a webhook for your photon or other particle.io devices, you can have the devices send their events to particle.io (since they’ve made that really easy in their sdk) and then the webhooks can forward those events along to Initial State.

          You can actually check out some of the webhook syntax for sending events to Initial State at this link in the particle.io community board: https://community.particle.io/t/webhooks-defining-the-request-body-as-json-array/12263/3?u=davidsulpy

          Please message us if you’re having any trouble with it!

        • Ability to create a bucket through the web application

          I'd like the ability to create a new bucket inside the web app without having to use the events api. This would allow me to create a bucket to send events to from a separate service like IFTTT without having to create a bucket each time.

            • Create a mobile experience for Tiles

              I'd like to be able to consume Tiles on a mobile device, specifically a device with the height and width of an iPhone 6. Please comment with other device sizes if you'd like other sizes specifically.

                  This has been released to all professional tier users. If you’re currently a pro tier user, you can enable this today by clicking the share link next to a bucket, and at the top, you’ll see a public share checkbox and link that you can copy and distribute after you share!

                  If you’re not a pro tier user today, upgrading is easy and commitment free!

                • Allow ability to log into multiple browsers with same account

                  I would like to be able to select "remember me" when I log in to one browser, and not be de-authenticated when I log in to another browser. I have a project that would benefit from being able to have one browser on a separate machine logged in showing a visualization and still be able to access my account from another browser without logging the other browser out.
