Problem:

Creating a questionnaire, a survey, and responding to a survey to chart the data is cumbersome.  Is it possible to load external metric data directly into Enterprise View Express for analysis through charts?

Resolution:

Yes, external metric data can be loaded by tag, using the import feature, bypassing the need  for mulitple users to respond to a survey.  Please see the XML file in the attached zip as an example. After importing the XML, the trending snapshot needs to be updated in Modernization Workbench before the data is visible in an Enterprise View chart.
