RTI provided us a no charge plugin that automatically creates zones for a PI that have a sequential order. This is very helpful for clients that want to import PI Counts from an import file and want to include the ZONE value in there. Only caution to give is that will duplicate Zones imported if you press the generate button more than once.
In v8 Zones in the import file were created automatically.
In v9 the workflow was changed to force the user to create the zones ahead of time, before the import. THis plugin overcomes this change for users that wanted it the old way.
