I’ve mentioned a few times – and I’ve seen the same commented via LinkedIn – that viewing data from multiple building floors at the same time would be beneficial. As a reminder, here’s what happens when you change floors with the current implementation:
The UX to implement some kind of “pinning” mechanism was non-trivial, but possible. The way I ended up thinking about this was as follows:
- We still want generic panels that will show data for a particular sensor type from whichever level is currently being displayed (as we have in the above GIF).
- These panels can be “pinned” for the current level, which will change the panel’s title and pinning status.
- It’s possible to have both a generic panel for the current level as well as one that’s been pinned: these will look the same, except for the title.
- In this case it shouldn’t…
