    • Sort "Source" in chronological order

      The "Source" view should be sorted in chronological order.
      For a list of 1 through n rows, it appears to be adding new rows at the top (at 1) most of the time, but when I have the InitialState app open, it adds new rows at the bottom (at n). The end result is that the chronological sort is broken.

      • Add application examples for National Instrument's LabVIEW.

        Add application examples on how to send event from LabVIEW. A specific LabVIEW API would be perfect.

          • Deleting a bucket should free up the bucket_key used to create it

            I want the ability to delete a bucket and reuse the bucket_key of that deleted bucket to create a new bucket.

            I understand that bucket_keys are unique per access_key (currently) but when I delete a bucket, I want to be able to use the same key again to create a new bucket.

            • Support for multiple SmartThings hubs in one Initial State account.

              I'd love to be able to configure multiple SmartThings hubs to stream to a single Initial State account.

              • Connect to BMS controllers under Modbus and Bacnet

                I can see this how this product could become universally used in HVAC system. But it must be able to talk the language. Modbus is an easy protocol, and used in anything industrial, bacnet is one of the mostly used in HVAC.

                • Simplify searches about your service

                  Find yourself a nickname for initial state, searching for a topic about you on google is like searching a car company named car, you can never get a good result.

                                  • Simultaneously Display Two Log Files

                                    Provide ability display two log files simultaneously for comparison. Thus, log file A from software version 1.0 can be compared to log file B from software version 1.1.
                                    Suggestions:
                                    - log file's being displayed can be independently scrolled along x-axis to allow alignment of signals
                                    - allow for mechanism to "lock" the x-axis after alignment so as to not lose alignment when scrolling
                                    - allow ability to compare/display the same log file so signals in one portion of the log file can be compared to signals in a different region of the same log file

                                          I'd like to be able to stream in some text and use Expressions to parse this data. Similar to how the mapping functionality works, but just grabbing parsed information.
