    Collect history on button push

    Is it possible to create a history record when a button is pushed? I have a timer that enables a label to promt the service guys to check the filters. There are 2 buttons one for filter check and another for filter change. Is it possible to collect a time stamp and hrs the filter has ran (from a bound label) and which button was pressed as a history record?
    This takes me back to my SQL server days. I jotted down a sql statement only to remember I couldn't use it lol.

    Starting over is so much fun!

    How about using an action button to trigger a latch component that the output is connected to a COV history?

    Yes, using a COV trend. A totalizer extension has some benefits over a timer. With two buttons you get two records. The buttons, through a bit of logic, could be combined in to a single enum writable and single record. (i.e., -1=button 1 on, 0=neither button, 1=button two on).
