I’ve had a request from a customer that has apparently seen this feature on someone else’s software (or at least thinks they have.) They would like the ability to do two things:
On Charts, be able to add a note to a specific point (ex: low tank level) that would stay tagged to that point in the chart. That way, if they go back to look at the chart history, they will be able to see the note at the spot it was added.
One any screen, they want the ability to right-click anywhere on the screen and create a note. They would like the note to either stay on the screen (like a post-it), or possible collapse down to an icon that they can click later on to re-open the note.
It appears that this functionality is going to nearly be a deal breaker for them. I discussed the Comments Panel with them, but the rationale I got back was “we used to make notes on the 20 year old circular chart recorder paper, so we could just pull the chart and see what the operator wrote down. New software should be able to do the same thing!”
Has anyone set up anything similar to this? Thanks in advance.
