Running the animation is a great feature of Enlighten. It would be nice to be able to go back further than seven days but the limitation is understandable.If you have a special date or event that you may like to review in the future, you can save the browser screen as a Archived Web page (using IE) by clicking on the "File" menu then selecting "Save As". Change the "Save As Type" to web archived page (.mht) and save to a location of your choice. The file can be opened at a later time using IE and you will see the original web page and you will also have the ability to play the one day and seven day animation.

Two things that would make this better are: 1) have a time lapse start automatically on page load and 2) have the time lapse loop continuously. When we showcase a system in "kiosk mode," like at a tradeshow or in our showroom, we have the page reload every X minutes. There is currently no way to automatically start the animation or to make it run continuously.
Tanner hit the nail on the head. We have a large government installation where they have a screen in the lobby that displays system performance. We set it up with an Internet Explorer extension that reloads the page periodically. Unfortunately, the output is quite static and boring. Real time updates without page reloading, animated time lapse, full screen sizing, and configurable output criteria would be great for a kiosk mode setup. Taking it to the next level, a VGA port on the Envoy would be dreamy - no computer required!
Interesting idea of adding a "loop" function for animations. This would be a great feature for a kiosk. Enphase Energy is listening to your ideas and this functionality may be implemented in the future. :)
For folks who do currently display the output on a screen or kiosk at their office, there are an addon that can be used within the Firefox browser to automatically auto refresh the screen.
Here is the Internet Explorer add-on that does the same thing. It's quite frustrating to set up. Once you run the installer, it does not appear to have done anything. Follow the directions carefully to set it up.
