Can you add a parameter when uploading historic data, so that when you upload eg. a csv file you can give the samples their correct moment in time?
Something like field1=2,34 stamp=2013-02-17T12:06:03Z

And it would be nice that the value is ignored when there is a sample at that moment already. (So no error situation)

Historic data can be added by the .csv file upload.
There you can add a datetime and values in for all fields.
Mind you, ALL fields, so updating only one field is not possible.

When you do upload, the new data is just added. So that means that when you upload the csv file 3 times, you have 3 times the amount of data points: for every timestamp 3.

Sounds logical but is not really.
What I would like is an option to correct data of specific fields at a specific datetime stamp
- An option to overwrite datafields when one is present for that field at that datetime stamp. (Measured up to the second)
- When you can set that option at the field level, you have also made it possible to correct only one field. For a given timestamp, make one field overwrite: The field to correct, and the rest not overwrite: stay as they are. (And there is not another value added)

For example:
2013-06-15 08:03:00,4,5,4
Updates three fields, removes old values at that date time stamp

2013-06-15 08:03:00,#,5,#
Updates only Field2, Field1 and Field3 remain as they are (# is the code for that)

Also an option to delete single field values at a given datetime stamp would be nice
2013-06-15 08:03:00,#,@,#
Removes the value for Field2 at that DateTime stamo (the @ code) and leaves the rest unchanged (The # code)
