  1. Enable DataLink to display the timestamps of calculated attributes in EF

    Enable DataLink (Explore Events) to display the timestamps of calculated attributes (e.g. maximum, minimum) of an Event Frame.
    Currently only the values are displayed. In PI System Explorer the requested timestamp is available.

  2. Display the values of the attributes from start and end time of each event frame that are pulled into the DataLink using Explore Events

    As a DataLink user, I would like to see the values of the attributes during the starttime and endtime period of each event frame that I pull into the DataLink using Explore Events tool. So that I don't need to ask for the compressed values during that time range for each of the attributes manually.

  3. Incorporate event frame acknowledgements into the event frame search features

    We are now able to acknowledge events via PI Coresight. This information is then stored in the PI AF back end. However, there is currently no way to retrieve this information via PI Datalink.

    While the EF search panes have a couple of options for "acknowledgements", these appear to be for legacy notifications acknowledgements rather than event frames. In its current form, I have to ack from Coresight + manually add an annotation which I am then able to view.

  4. Export Attachments or Attachment Path Attached to Event Frame Annotations

    We are able to currently see annotations for Event Frames but there is no easy way to quickly get a bulk export of Event Frames with Annotations along with what was attached to it, be it file name or path. It would be good to have another column that can pull in the attachment data that was associated with the EF and annotation.

  5. Select multiple child elements at a time when sorting event frames in Datalink

    When we use Datalink to select the child attributes, you have to select them one at a time. Being able to select several at once would be nice.

  6. Manual selection of Event Frame

    I would like to select Event Frame/ Event Frames from the Preview in Explore Events task-pane and result returns manually selected Event Frame/ Event Frames only.
