Letting the customer specify the time zone in which to represent the data would be a nice enhancement.

Option for PI Point Number Inserts instead of Tag Names - tag renames stop spreadsheets from working.
ProcessBook stores tags by their pointid. If you change the name of a tag, It will still show up in ProcessBook. We would like to have the option to store tags in Xcel by the tag number instead of the name.
As an example, we are getting ready to change allot of PI tag names, it would be nice to convert the spreadsheet to save current tags by pointid, then save the file. Change our PI tag names, then reopen the file and reconvert it tag names. When we change PI Tag names, we want the spreadsheets to still function.10 votes
As a creator of DataLink spreadsheets, I would like to have the option to disable DataLink automatic grouping so that I can apply an input to one function (ex. filter expression, conversion factor, etc.) without it being applied to the entire group. Currently DataLink automatically groups similar functions when using the task pane, even if they are created by copy paste or by dragging the fill handle.7 votes
I would like the ability to disable automatic connections to specific AF Servers. Currently client applications (DataLink) are implicitly connecting to all AF Servers in the AF "KST". This results in very slow startup times for Excel. For customers with many AF Servers or off-shore servers connected via satellite, this could save a lot of time.4 votes
Only include the worksheet in a formula if a sheet other than the one the formula resides is referenced
Copying formulas from one sheet to another is tedious because you must replace the sheet that Datalink forces in with the sheet you paste into even if all referenced cells are all on the same sheet. Please make the behavior similar to how Excel does it - only include the sheet name in formulas if a cell on a sheet that is not on the same sheet as the formula itself is references. Or at least an option to pick.2 votes
Restrict the "Root path" field on the "Current Value" menu to only display PI Data Archive servers previously connected to this machine.
We have 12 PI Data Archive Servers and another 12 PI AF Systems. I currently have to sort through a list of 124 "servers" when I setup to collect some PI data. Many of the 124 "servers" are old servers no longer in use or databases under PI AF Systems or accidental misspellings of a server name. It would be able to clean the list up.1 vote
