Virtual channels for feeds

by teslasapprentice on Sat Mar 23, 2019 12:15 pm

Hello!

Is there a way to create a virtual channel to perform basic computation tasks like scaling or unit conversion? Or maybe a dashboard object that reads in the feed data the performs a calculation and displays the result on the most recent data point?

I know all this can be done prior to sending the data to the server but there is some value add in post processing data.

Thanks!

This feature doesn't currently exist within IO, most of the conversions/scaling should be done from the client. Though, supporting this with a dashboard block is an interesting idea...

Could you add it to the feature suggestion thread over here: viewtopic.php?f=56&t=139746
