Thanks for the replies.
All I really need is to send a regular email (via scheduled events) which contains a single value ( a water meter reading) to the local council officer.
A normal report will work just fine if I select a date range of "previous 1 minute" as the data point is only logged every 5 minutes. It would just be cleaner not to have to send the chart graphic with minimum, maximum, average etc etc values in the email as well (all I really want to send is the one number a site identifier). See below
I'll have a crack at using the information you have provided.
I am trying to create a simple email in event handler triggered by a scheduled event that sends the current value of a data point.
The scenario is to report a weekly reading of a water meter to a local government department via email.
In the UI, I made a scheduled event then added an email to it in Event Handler, adding the required data point in the "Additional Context" section. The email; gets sent fine but there is never any data point value included in the email.
Any advice on how to get this working is much appreciated.
I'm not at all familiar with scripting if that is required.
