A couple of UI feature requests

These may be issues with the app rather than the plugin, but I thought I'd ask:

1. In neither the desktop app nor the web UI can you see the assorted "Custom States" (e.g., humidity, outdoor temp, etc.) that you can see in the iOS app. Is there some way to get those to appear?

2. When you create an action for a thermostat, the setpoint temperature is hidden in the "Edit Action Settings..." button, and when you see the action in an action list, it simply says something like "heat setpoint". It would be nice to have the setpoint in an editable text box when creating the action, and in the action list it would be nice to see "set 'Bathroom Thermostat' heat setpoint to 64°".

Are either of these things that can be done in the plug-in, or would you need application help to make them happen?

In the Mac client when you have a device selected, notice that there is a split pane handle (a dark gray dot) between the list and the tile detail area. Drag it up and you'll see custom states. They aren't available in the Indigo Touch for Web UI at the moment.

Cool! I never noticed that before.

The custom states do appear in Indigo Touch (at least they do for these thermostats), but not in the Web UI. I guess that's a feature request for you guys. :wink:

Indigo Touch (which is often used to refer to specifically to the iOS client) is in fact the name of all of our client apps. Right now, there are two: iOS and Web. ;)

We have plans for the web on our long-term roadmap.
