  1. Allow Event Frame Variable values to be used in a Notification Rule email

    I have a scenario where we are sending alerts on how well a fermentation batch has performed. I need look at attribute values at a specified timestamp and compare the other values at that same time. Easy enough right? The problem is I cannot send those values in the email alert because the attribute/pinpoint may have already received some new values or some may have been entered out of order causing the values in the email alert to not match up with what actually happened for that particular batch.

    I can get the email alert to go out no problem…

  2. Keep escalating Notification until it is acknowledged, even if no longer active

    I would like the option to configure a Notification to continue to be escalated until it has been acknowledged, even after the trigger condition has become false and the Notification is no longer active.

  3. Change Event Frame Analysis Category of the Specific Element

    If I have an element template with event frame analyses and notifications, I might want to change the event frame analysis category of a specific element. I thought this could be done by selecting “Allow Extensions” for the element template, but I can’t seem to change the analyses category or notification category for a specific element even when I allow extensions. From a management standpoint it would be nice to filter on these categories to turn on/off specific analyses and notifications.

  4. Specific Number of Required Acknowledgements for an Escalation Team

    A way to require a certain number of acknowledgments for an escalation team? (ie: Only stop notifying if 3 or more people of my 5 person escalation have acknowledged the notification)

  5. Show different status icon for Notification when it's Event Frame is not Running

    For notifications triggered off of an event frame analysis, it is possible for the event frame analysis to be turned “off” (not showing green checkmark) while the corresponding notification still shows a green checkmark. This seems slightly misleading because the notification is technically not running or being evaluated because the event frame is off. Is there a way to show a different icon for the notification if it’s corresponding event frame is not in a running state?

  6. Add functionality to tables to make it more dynamic and easier to configure in a format.

    As a notification user I want to see a table of all the attributes and its values on the target element in my email, furthermore when I add or remove attributes I want to see it automagically updated in my email without me having to reconfigure the table in my format.

  7. Shift based sending

    As a Plant manager I would like to assign specific people to receive notifications based on the time of day since they work in shifts and different people are responsible for the equipment at different times of the day.

  8. Create Analysis and Notifications when limits are set on attributes

    As a Notification user I would like a one-click way of configuring a notification on the limits I have set on the attribute so that I spend less time configuring a simple notification such as this.

  9. Embed a rendered view of a web page in the email before sending it.

    As a notification user I want to see a view of the web page when I receive an email notification so that I have all the information I need on one screen.

  10. Location based sending

    As a Notification user I would like to assign specific people to receive notifications based on the location of the equipment since my equipment travels all the time and different people are responsible for the equipment based on the location of it.
