Coresight - Questions for programmers

We have been using Coresight successfully for a little over a year and have found it to be a quick, neat tool for visualizing the data. While using it, I have noticed that two items, that if tweaked, would provide much more information to the user.


1) The Coresight trend has a configuration option for adding a line to show the max, min, or average. The usefulness of these lines would be much greater if a value would be available to the user on the trend. The max/min/ave could show up when hovering on the line or on the left scale or right scale. Adding the value would decrease the need for a table below the trend to show the actual number for these calculations.


2) The Coresight table has a configuration option to add the time to the table. This field displays the right most time value, a value which is already displayed in the time box (next to the NOW button). I find this field a bit pointless. To make it useful it could be altered to show the time the max occurred, or the min.


I am hoping this is the right place to post this so one of the PI programmers will see it, and comment on the possibility of these small tweaks making it into production.




Thank you
