  1. Tile Zoom

    Allow tiles to be resized on the fly. This would apply to a URL share. Allow users to click and drag to re-position tiles or change size; and get full screen with a double click. The re formatting would apply only to that user instance, not affecting any other viewer. It would allow users to get a more detailed view of areas of interest.

    • Add legend to the Pie Chart tile

      A small legend with the colors/values for the Pie Chart tile would make it easier to understand without having to hover.

      • Calculate new values based on existing data

        Say I'm sending Voltage and Current to be displayed and I would also like to display power. The option to display

        Power = V * I

        is now available - Thanks! Taking that a step further, say for AC power if I also know the phase angle (phi) between V and I then I could calculate and display real power thus:

        Real Power = V * I * cos(phi)

        • 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.

          • zoom / scroll historical data while using "show events since"

            Hi InitialState

            When using the time limit function "Show event since" (- which is very nice!!), it would be good to be able to manually zoome - or scroll back into historical data - older then the time limit in the "default view" for the data set.
            The default view is what I want to see on a daily basis - on a normal day. When something happens, and I get some kind of extraordinary data - I want to look at previous data to see what leed up to the event.

            Hope it makes sense - otherwise please do…

            • Support for devices behind a HTTP/HTTPS proxy

              For devices that are behind HTTP/HTTPS proxies, there is no ability for me to send data up. We have several datacenters that we would like to be able to create IoT sensors for, but in testing I have been unable to get data up to the cloud due to all network traffic having to go through corporate proxy servers. Exporting http_proxy and https_proxy environment variables was unsuccessful - help is appreciated!

              • Ability to configure tiles programmatically

                The ability to configure tiles (tile type, size, order, etc.) through the API will allow you to automatically create a dashboard and set its view before the data is ever viewed in the UI. This configurability should be provided as an option in the Python ISStreamer module.

                  • Would like the API to return http or other error for invalid bucket key

                    It would be useful if the event post returned an error for an invalid bucket key. We could use that to then create the missing bucket via error handling in our application.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                                        • ugh, i dont like that I cant set the tiles to exactly the size I want, keys resizing themselves

                                          let me easily turn off all of that resizing options, I cant seem to figure out what is still turned on
