Select/deselect some period of time

Hi all,


we want to offer the possibility for the end user to select/deselect some period of time for which the historical data of certain PI tags must not be taken into account (for example due to maintenance operations on the site). The end user must be able to easily add some new period (and optionally to add some informations about this period) or to remove some periods.


At the beginning, we thought about storing these days in a PI tag (1 for a day selected and 0 for a day not selected) but it seems not so easy for giving an interface for the end user allowing him to visualize the period selected and to make some changes on the period (PI Datalink + macros + UFL?)

Moreover, in order to achieve this goal, the eventframe notion seems perfect.


What is the best way for visualizing and creating/ modifying/deleting such eventframes? Is there a way to do it by Excel or must it be done by a custom application (.Net by the use of AF SDK)?


Thanks in advance for your answers,
