        A way to add notes to data streams. Adding a text box that is linked to a certain time in a certain data stream. Finance.google.com has this where they have little lettered flags in the charts, and on the side they have news items related to the flags.

        • 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.

          • 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.

                • Show bit signals in Tiles

                  Truthy/falsey signals (on/off, up/down, active/inactive, ...) should have a visualization in Tiles much like Waves shows them as bit signals.

                        • Cognitive Analytics Engine

                          I have 2.7 million datapoints sat in Initial State. It would super cool if we could run analytics (Watson like). Obvisously I could squirt all my data in to Watson but I'd rather keep it all under one provider.

                          I realise its a big ask.....

                            • SSL/TLS MQTT Packet Forwarding with Self-Signed Certificates

                              Love the site that you've developed here. Everything works well but I've hit a small bump. Using AWS as an IoT backend means the outgoing MQTT messages can only be accessed by self-signed certificates. IS and Flowthings do not support this so I had to build a patch to run locally. Would be nice to see this get implemented.

                                      • Easier Lines Tracking of Real Time Data

                                        I want to bring up the Lines data and just let it fill in, currently the cursors get in the way or new ones get created when I click, and the screen doesn't always auto-fill with new data if cursors are defined. I'd just like a plain screen with no cursors on it that continually adds new data as it comes in.

                                        • Y-axis in Tiles could be expanded to the min/max values on the selected range

                                          Make Tiles spark line y axis min/max the current selected timeline range instead of the total stream min/max range
