    . Edit/All time records
    . Edit/Monthly Records
    . Edit/This month's records
    . Edit/This Year's records

    (All above including the "Fetch log/dayfile data" options.)

    . View/This Period (No need for the This Year/Month etc as they all can be created by the This Period function)

    . I guess people will want the RG11 input function - assuming it is not implemented already.

    . also, I know you have listed dayfile.txt editor but specifically the "Create Missing" function. Little used (but important) items like this could be implemented as standalone executables if it is easier that way. (The "Fetch log/dayfile data" options in the records editors could be done this way too - again, if it is easier to implement that way).

    User-defined time period on the graphs that appear on the trends page. My C1 installation uses 3 days.

    The code is already in the engine, but there's currently no settings UI.

    The ability to force an FTP update as per the Update Now menu feature (currently have to wait 15 minutes to see if a change worked with data etc. and I like to test it NOW :D ).

    Edit: Whoops this might be there if FTP Manual update means the same?

    These for Me...
    • Alarms
      Manual ftp-update
      Errors like ftp-time out / sensor contact lost
      Flashing New Record
      Flashing Catch Up
    I know this isn't in C1, but how about an rss feed in the sunset/rise box (console). This could be used to add your weather forecast of choiuce or weather warnings perhaps.

    Hello Steve,

    If there is a place in improvements CumulusMX?

    - #CURCCOND

    Direct access to the "Curccond" as the Cumulus Version 1

    - #SNOWLYING, #SNOWDEPTH, #SNOWFALLING

    Direct access to the components as in SNOW Cumulus1 Version

    Thank you for everything.

    Best Regards

    On the dashboard - Current E.T. and Wind Run

    and Apparent temperature, possibly?

    Wind run is on the wind rose in the latest (next) version. Apparent temperature is already supplied to the dashboard, so it can be added as required (I'll provide instructions at some point). I'll add ET to the supplied data so it can also be added as required.

    I'd like to see the storm rain figure displayed on the dashboard and similar to above the RG11 data. Perhaps the RG11 data could be optional as I assume not many of us have these.
