Should NI show external calibration temperature in MAX

We are trying to determine whether or not NI should continue displaying the external calibration device temperature (see screen shot below) in MAX. Is the external calibration temperature useful information that you use to help make decisions, or is it confusing and probably should be removed?

 

I would appreciate any input on the manner.

I don't see how it could be confusing.  The only thing I can think of using the temp for is to compare it to the current temperature and you could expect good numbers.  If the two temps are very different then you might be able to predict some sort of reading drift due to temperature.  I would imagine there are bigger problems to fix than weather or not to show calibration temperature Smiley Wink

 

Has NI had a lot of complaints/questions regarding cal temps?

I would leave it!  It's part of the external calibration data.  Nice to pull up a "report" in MAX without having to create a new VI, drop the appropriate constants/property nodes down, then pull the data out that way.
