Point Reader

This is a simple application that can takes a VSE (official) export JSON file with the points enabled and display them in a table and optionally to a CSV file.

Enabling this feature in the new VSE tool is not public information, you will need to discuss it with your local Solutions Architect.

The VSE tool is being updated regularly so expect breaking changes to this tool.
