          • Two Waves Displays for the Same Data Bucket

            Can you have two wave displays referencing the same data bucket? I have it with my smart things data and there is a lot of data. I'd like a wave tab for most used data, one for battery levels and one for other activity data.

                I'd like to have the ability to specify a Tile on my dashboard that shows the current, local time so that I do not have to stream it in.

                                        • Customizable Embed Elements

                                          Provide a means to customize which elements are visible through the embed.

                                          Specific use-case: I'd like to be able to put an embed somewhere without the timeline and show a specific time range of data.
