Is it possible to write data witout field?

Hi everyone. I have some data containing only time and tags. Like the data is just a mark on time.
I have no idea what to put in the field now. I’ve looked up a lot. But no one really got the exactly the same situation like this.
I saw ppl recommend to just put boolean in filed. Is that a good approach?

I suggest you give us an idea of what you want to do with this data - how do
you plan to use it, what sort of queries do you want to perform on it, do you
want to combine it with anything else…?

Hi Antony,

Right now I’m storing Tipping Bucket data.
The data is just timestamp, quality flag and tipping depth.
Quality flag and tipping depth are metadata. There are 4 types of quality flag and 2 types of depth.
I wonder what should I do to the field column.
There isn’t some fancy way to perform on it. Probably just query data within a range of time.

Actually I also wonder what schema design should I use.
Should I put all station in one measurement with each tipping have a tag of station ID?
Or I should make each station a measurement with one uesless field?
I did some research but I didn’t get enough information about this kind of schema design discussion.

Today I do some process to get rainfall intensity using tipping time.
And now I have a time series data represent intensity (mm/min) with the resolution of 1-min.
Also I delete all 0 value.

For this kind of data. I feel like it’s better to store them in different measurement with different station ID.
