  1. Split the PI DataLink install kit into 2: PI DataLink (Legacy) and PI DataLink (not legacy)

  4. Provide DataLink functionality in a Google Sheets add-on

    A significant number of companies are moving from the Microsoft Office suite to "G Suite" (Google). This move takes customers from MS Excel to Google Sheets, and they would like to retain PI DataLink as a functional add-on.
