Hi PISquare,


I'm trying to find an alternative to something my senior leadership team have initiated which I think could be implemented better.


We run a 24/7 site and updates are sent out at 6 hourly intervals by the shifts via email.The update email includes a screenshot of a PI display from a fixed timestamp (6am, 12pm, 6pm, midnight, depending on when the email goes out). Is there anyway of automating this screen capture and then using PI Notifications to issue the email?? I've already got emails which are sent to vendors at defined intervals, so I thought this might be an extension of that, but I have no idea how to do the screen capture and appending to the notification.


I'm also interested to know if anyone done something similar but using Coresight, or anything else which would fulfil this presentation of plant data. I'm sure I can't be the only one who has tried to do this!!!
