A utility that can safely delete custom measurements from PME

Admit it. We've all done it... From beginners to pro's.

Created a device via MDI / DTE / ETL and accidentally misspelled the register or quantity name....? Good luck.

Forget to name the output of an Arithmetic module in VIP and you end up with something silly like "Art32 Result 4" under Custom Measurements...

It's an easy mistake - but an exceptionally difficult one to rectify.

There are other great utilities out there that makes our jobs just a little easier e.g.: Manual Data Editor, Power Manager Settings etc.

Why can't we have a utility that can safely execute the script to delete an unwanted custom measurement? Why contact tech support over something so mundane?

Who agrees...? Vote now

I'll be the first to make a suggestion for this awesome new utility - Custom Measurement Deleter

Re: A utility that can safely delete custom measurements from PME

I agree. It's a real pain to work with custom measurements in PME. I'd prefer utility not just to delete them, but to create as well. I'd love to have the ability just to set the name, aggregation type, units, local name and so on and be able to see that measurement everywhere in the system.

Re: A utility that can safely delete custom measurements from PME

Nice idea and discussion! Actually, thinking about it some more - it would be nice to have a wrapper framework around all these utilities. For example, Microsoft Management Console (mmc) is the framework that has the concept of "snap-ins" to house all the different configuration tools. Programmers can even build their own snap-ins to share the look-and-feel and behavior. Something similar would be elegant.
