  4. Smart Guides for Aligning Objects

    "Smart" guides would be really helpful for lining up symbols when editing or creating a display. For example, similar to what PowerPoint has when you move an object around on a slide. It tells you when you're aligned with another object on the display.

  5. TABLE: Allow Asset Comparison table to be transposed

    In the paper industry, there are fewer assets at a site, but those assets tend to have many attributes (e.g., there may only be 3 paper machines, but each has 100 attributes of interest). It would be helpful if the Asset Comparison table in PI Vision could be transposed so that asset names were Column headings and attribute names were rows.
    For example, instead  of a table with 5 rows and 100 columns (that can't be seen all at once on one display page), it would be better to have four columns of assets names with 100 rows of values,…

  6. Add "Sequence of Events" Symbol Type

    Add a table symbol which consists of the following 3 columns:

    Tag Name
    Tag Value
    Tag Timestamp (default sort on this column, ascending order)

    This table would consist of a set of tags over a specified time range.

    The purpose of this "Sequence of Events" table is for users to analyze the root cause and order of events that took place for a set of equipment. Typically your symbols in PI Vision and the way Datalink works is that each tag is separated into a separate column or row. The key feature here is to merge the tags into one…

  9. Tour Scheduling for PI Manual Logger

    In PI Manual Logger PC, you can set tours to run on a schedule.  This allows, you to set the tour run time as opposed to having the application round the tour run to the nearest hour.

    In PI Manual Logger Web, the tour scheduling configuration is not respected.  Add functionality for Tour Runs in PI Manual Logger Web follow periodic tour scheduling.

  10. Layering functionality for PI Coresight similar to that of ProcessBook

    PI Coresight currently does not support any functionality for layers. It would nice to be able to create custom layers that could toggled on a single Coresight display. ProcessBook currently has layering feature that is very useful for simplifying a complex display when not all of the information is necessary for every user.

  11. Use PI AF substitution syntax for naming of elements on a display.

    With the new Collections feature in PI Vision it will be critical to keep the names of our elements to a few characters as it will pull the name from its element.
    It would be a great feature to allow the use of AF substitution logic so that I can use an Attribute within the element as a short name which will keep the visual in PI Vision tidy.

  12. Hide data when attributes don't exist for dissimilar assets

    Assets and machines are never quite the same. Be able to swap the asset/element context (may be different template) and if the selected asset doesn't have certain data available on the display, don't show it on the display rather than an error message.

    This should apply to collections in addition to individual symbols.

  13. Trend: Ability to multistate trace pen color

    As a PI Vision user, I want to be able to configure a trend's trace color to be conditional based on the trace value. Each section of the trace should be colored appropriately based on its value at that time. See attached image for example.

    As a PI administrator I want to be able to make announcements to the users on the PI Vision start page from time to time.

    Examples of announcements is planned upgrade dates and times, information about new features, problems with data capture from interfaces, etc.

    A suitable place for these announcements could be the lower left corner of the start page.

  17. Add ability to Collapse/Expand Attribute category sections in Asset Search Pane

    By default, the attributes shown for an asset in the Asset Search Pane, are all shown under their categories with no ability to collapse a given section. The can mean that the user has to scroll down a considerable amount in order to find the attributes they need (see screenshot 1). Screenshot 2 shows an example of how the "Real-Time Data" may be beneath under attribute sections, that while may be important at times, are not collapsible to make it quicker and easier to get to a section the user may access much more frequently. Of course, one can make…

  19. Compare data over different time ranges on the same trend

    As a process engineer, I need to be able to overlay traces on the same trend with data from different time ranges so that I can compare different point in time. This may be the same data item over different time ranges or multiple different data items over different time ranges.
