Make the client time-zone in Perspective changeable
Hi, our operators are monitoring projects in different timezones & so far we found Ignition’s model to be single timezone based. For now, we are working around things using Java classes in Python scripts (as recomended here: https://forum.inductiveautomation.com/t/handling-different-timezones-on-both-frontend-backend/46267 ), but we would also like to be able to change how the date & time is presented on the frontend. Example: We monitor projects in Australia, Europe & South America. We can choose the timezone Perspective will use in the Project Properties - so far, we set it to Client Timezone. This is fine as long as the operator is sitting in the same country as the project he/she monitors. But when the operator is for example in Europe & the project he/she monitors is in South America, we would like for them to see graphs etc. in the timezone of the project. Ideally, we would like to provide a dropdown menu in which the operator could choose whether to see the data in their timezone or in the project’s timezone. For this, we would need the property to be writable, which it’s currently not - see the attached screenshots. I presume there is probably a reason for why it is read-only, but we need to do this somehow. So, if it is possible, we would greatly appreciate you added an option to change the timezone settings with an expression or script on the client side - either as a general Perspective session property, or as a property on graphs etc. Thanks for considering, regards, JK
Disable Multiple X-Traces on Perspective PowerChart
Multiple x-traces are sometimes frustrating to the user. Every click adds another x-trace and they can get stacked on top of each other. It would be nice to have an option to only allow one x-trace and be able to click and drag it to new locations.
Intelligently Rename Tags
One of the biggest problems I've had in Ignition is the lack of ability to rename tags, popups, templates and the like because all links to them are broken. Could a smart rename feature be created that would automatically change all links to a tag when it is renamed, or at least point to all the locations it is used so the user could easily change them? Thank you
Perspective Power Chart - Expose datasets as property
Having the underlying dataset available as a property simplifies development/performance in a number of use cases. For example, if a user wanted to create a report from a power chart, it is much easier and more performant to pass the dataset from the chart to the report than to recreate the query in the report exactly.
make playSoundClip so it works on the client in Perspective
We have tried playing sounds in perspective, and seen the advice at https://forum.inductiveautomation.com/t/system-util-playsoundclip-only-work-on-gateway/33738/6 The iframe workaround works ok in Firefox, but doesn't work in chrome since autoplay has been turned off in Chrome for a few years. I would like to play warning sounds to operators if they make errors.
Perspective column configuration (auto add)
Recently, the ability to add/sync parameters to views such as an embedded view. I use tables extensively in my projects, and often there are many columns. This can be very time consuming with, 20, 30 or more columns. It would be nice to be able to click the '+' on the columns property and add all or selectively add columns to the table.
Perspective - Drawing Tools
Add basic drawing tools to Perspective (lines, circles, squares, etc.). If feasible, it would be fantastic to be able to group as well.
Vision Alarm Journal Export All Dataset
We need a simple way to do a full Dataset Extract from the Alarm Journal. This is a high customer want and a programming nightmare for integrators (much code or SQL statements). The component has this data already queried and a simple extract or access to the full dataset would be nice.
Hide/Show annotations on PowerChart
I would like to be able to control if the annotations in the PowerChart are visible or not. I want to add a toggle button that shows or hides the annotations.
