Conditional Analytics within event frame templates
As a PI Admin, I'd like to be able to calculate conditional based analytics within my event frames rather than in an outside calculation that you need to reference within the event frame. This causes timing issues when trying to schedule that calculation and the event frame generation. Having an expression analysis and event frame generation analysis is additional work to set up and to maintain.
Work around is to use Datalink or another client tool.
Like: during a batch, frequently update the volume produced to a PI Point?
We need a frequent update to trigger other analysis, like checking for limits to generate e.g. an out-of-control EventFrame and/or trigger a Notification.
Now we need to do the cumbersome work of first finding the start of the batch and then do the analysis to calculate the volume.
NOTE: simplfied example, i know there are other ways to achieve this

Jessica Rammo, I think I added already the same request. Hereby the link to the idea. Analytics in an Eventframe.
