Easily create periodic event frames
I'd like an easy way of creating periodic event frames (such as hourly), so that the close of one event frame is at the same time as the open of the next.
PI Server 2018 has been released.
We have a longer term plan to migrate features of EFGen into analytics. As you know, EFGen has a lot of features would would take us some time to get there.

Should also be able to choose more than 1 day. Event Frames are very useful for production reporting and these typically occur monthly

Being able to do basic time triggered events frames with out the extra formula hoopla would be great. Often have need to keep users updated on a schedule time interval of a tank.
Sometimes Event Frame model of start and end doesn't apply. We only need a start and it only has a duration of Started. End time and extra formula just isn't needed in many cases.
THIS IS SOOOOO NEEDED! (I'm not yelling just emphasizing with Caps ;)

Along the same line, we should bring back support for step triggered event frames.
Use case: need to create an event frame at each reel change.

Agreed! Could the pulse and step trigger behavior from the EF Gen interface be ported over to the EF Gen analysis?
Think Batches, Phases, Products, etc. Changing from one value to the next, requiring EFs with no space in between. Currently very difficult to achieve.
