Open Panel from Non-Actionable Tiles

Jeff Lightfoot 7 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 5 years ago 3

I'd like the option to open a Panel Shortcut by clicking on a Sensor / Contact tile.

My example:  I have an aggregate simulated contact sensor that shows the status of all my contact sensors.  Click on that tile to open a panel with the status of all my contact sensors.

This would save me from having a neighbor panel shortcut tile.

This is a great idea, Jeff...

We have had several requests for "group lighting Control Tiles" and "aggregate sensor Tiles", but your idea is a good compromise stepping-stone that is much easier.

While we know that adding our own implementation of groups & aggregates natively in ActionTiles will be super appreciated, there are a lot of reasons we think this is best left for implementation using other SmartThings's tools (e.g., basic group lighting can be done via the Smart Lighting SmartApp).

However, this Idea you have posted is isolated from that complication and worth discussion and Votes.

Hi Terry

Any progress on this idea or was there something else that replaced it.

Hi Moe,

This is particularly complex to implement in our current architecture and only has 7 Votes, so we're likely to give other ideas higher priority.

Some major back-end work is underway that might make this and some other stuff easier to build - But we don't pre-announce specific development roadmaps. Each part has to fall into place. Please refernce: When are Feature Ideas in the Forum going to be implemented?
