  1. Display hand when hovering over objects with Navigation Links

    When hovering with the mouse over a display object that has a Navigation Link attached to it, the mouse cursor should change to a hand when not in edit mode and it should navigate on single-click instead of having to double-click.

    Having the mouse cursor change to a hand to indicate when a symbol is configured with a navigation link is in development for the PI Vision 2019 release. To make this behavior more intuitive for users, single-clicking the symbol will trigger the navigation instead of double-click. Trends will be an exception to this, single-clicking a trend will continue to drop a cursor and double-click will be required for navigation links.

  2. Timebar: Add control for flexible time manipulation

    Similar to the timebar in Coresight 2.x, add the ability for a user to finely control time using a slider and increase or decrease the time duration using the slider.

  3. Multistate: change text colors

    In multistate, we are able to change background color.
    Customer would like to see how to change text (letters, words) colors

  4. Multistate behavior in table object

    Hi!
    It would be great if the table object would be configured to handle multistate.
    Each attribute in the table should be possible to configure to multistate.

    Even better if it some how could be configured from AF, so that you would have a template in AF that are associated with a version of the table object.
    In that case when you pick a attribute thats associated with a template then everything is configured to the corresponding table object.

  5. Open attached files directly from PI-Vision

    It is great that I can attach files as an attribute to an element in AF and that these files are shown in the PI-Vision navigation (see attached screenshot). But why is it not possible to open these files directly from PI-Vision? This would be a great improvment.

  6. Trend: Edit trace name in legend or be able to add a description

    Edit the trace name or add a description in the legend of a trend in order to:

    1) Make clear the description of the Attribute in the trend
    2) Use an abbreviation for the attribute description in the trend legend
    3) Use a different language in the legend while respecting the attribute name (for example, an attribute name is written in English in PI System Explorer but we would like to see Italian in the Coresight trend)

    Customizing legend in the trend is planned for a future release.

  7. Gauge: Radial Gauge to show direction and magnitude

    Show wind direction and wind speed in a compass like radial gauge.

  11. Event Comparison Display: Allow scale configuration

    There is no ability to configure the Y-axis scales on the event comparison displays (database, autorange, custom). If there is an outlier value it can make the chart too compressed to see useful data.

  12. Hover/Mouse Over ToolTip for Hyperlinks and Navigation Links

    As a PI Vision user, it would be helpful to have a ToolTip showing the hyperlink when a Navigation Link is added to an object or symbol. Right now, this only occurs with a Text symbol, but it would be helpful to have this for other symbols, such as a shape or image.

  13. Heat Map

    A Heat Map is the universal method to show energy data over time and volume to provide a quick context to issues based on a pattern view.  This requirement is across all industries and mandatory in the facility market place.

  15. Sort Collection by attribute value

    When creating a collection, would like to sort the collection by a specific attribute value (what is shown in the collection).  For example, a collection of tanks showing percent full.  Would like to sort collection by percent full, to show the most full tanks at the top of the collection.  The Asset Comparision table has this functionality.

  16. Event Details: Allow scale configuration

    We are using EventFrames to catch Alarm states. Therefore we compare measurements to Limits we created in AF. Unfortunately in the PI Coresight EventFrames Display the trend always configures its y-axis automatically. So all the Limits are on the same line and you can not easily see which Limit raised the alarm or how the measurement value changed between the limits during the EventFrame. It would be nice if the y-axis would be scalable manually (single scale, multi-scale, etc).

  17. Show descriptions in tooltip

    In PI CoreSight 2014, when working with a raw Tag or attribute, one could hover over the tag and the description would appear in the tooltip. I loved that functionality. However, in the upgrade, this functionality is lost.

    Please reinstate it for the next patch or upgrade.

  18. Statistics between cursors

    When adding multiple cursors to a trend, have a way to show the statistics (min/max/avg/duration) between the two cursors.

  19. Replicate the Pi Table functionality previously available in Pi WebParts

    The Pi Table Web Part provided the ability to easily create powerful displays that included Pi Data and relational in a single Element Relative display. For example, you could create a view of an asset's current status, and combine that with defects and work orders.

  20. Gauge: Support Zones / Scale Ranges

    Support zone configuration on gauges so that the user has an indication of whether the attribute is in a good or bad state.

    If an attribute has limits defined for it in PI AF (LO, LOLO, HI, HIHI), the gauge should default to the limits by default.
