Wanting to create text boxes in an Organizer page that will persist in that date range


Recommended Posts

I write a weekly unit report (currently using excel) I want to use Seeq for this report but one functionality I need is to be able to save the comments I put in and look back at them. 

Basically in 3 years form now I want to be able to enter a date into Seeq and pull up my old report even with the comments I made back then.

Is this possible?

Hi Jesse. Thanks for this input. While text boxes cannot yet be tied to date ranges in Organizer, our team has been thinking about ways to improve the process of entering and discovering comments around data.

What some of our customers do in this scenario is have an Organizer Topic for each week, and they can navigate to a Topic representing a week in the past when they want to see what comments they had entered alongside the data. Some users duplicate that report each new week and clear out comments that may not be applicable when entering in new comments, and step the date ranges to now. This would be my recommendation for the time being.

Another route you could explore is Annotations in Workbench. They have a date/time context and can appear on the trend as a little chat bubble, but the information added there is not yet available in Organizer. We hope to bring the concepts of Annotations in Workbench and Comments entered in Organizer together some time in the future. We might reach out for more feedback from you on these ideas.

Thanks Joanna! The idea of a new Organizer Topic each week had not occurred to me but may work pretty well.


The other thing I tried was to make a seeq data tag for comments and just insert a data table with the comment but I can't format the font or text size.
