Any plans to expand on eSeries info in active IQ?     It's very... limited and i find myself having to dig through raw autosupports for any info. 



Great question. I don't want to have any roadmap discussions here on a public forum. That being said, the Product Management of Active IQ definitely understands that being multi-platform is one of our key differentiators and value-adds. We know that there are some gaps for E-Series, but we have been closing those as development time permits.
