  2. Moving the trends or inserting trends in the display is difficult even with snap grid. Copy and paste a groupe of trends is not very easy.

    Moving the trends or inserting trends in the display is difficult even with snap grid. Copy and paste a group of trends is not very easy.
    Make the movement of trends easier without having to drag it slowly across whole display. Copy and paste to a selected cursor location will be helpful.

  3. Save Snap to Grid Setting

    If the Snap to Grid spacing is adjusted and a display built and saved. When the page is reloaded, the snap to grid spacing is lost and it then becomes difficult to get the spacing 'just so' again to allow for easy display maintenance or modifications.

  4. More configuration options with multiple Text symbols selected

    Currently, when multiple Text symbols are selected, the only format option available in the Configure Symbol dialogue is Font Size. All other options should be available such as color options and rotation so that all selected symbols can be standardized to a particular format.

  5. More configuration options with multiple Value symbols selected

    Currently, when multiple Value symbols are selected, the only format options available in the Configure Symbol dialogue are Font Size and Text Alignment (see image). All other options should be available such as color options, number format, and visibility so that all selected symbols can be standardized to a particular format.

  6. PIVision tool for URL re-writes/redirects(301 perm, etc)

    Was surprised to find there is no current way to set custom URLs or set redirects for PIvision displays. We understand there is a display number appended to the URL migrated or created displays.

    After doing hundreds of processbook migrations and updates.
    It would be a huge advantage, not only for migrating old display hierarchies, but also designing new hierarchies and structure for PI vision displays.

    You could develop a tool that could allow the display admin URL re-writing into the ISS host. Like a 301 perm rewrite.

    If you are worried about it breaking any existing migration URL links,…

  7. Snap to Grid pixel size adjustment

    Snap to grid is great, but needs to have a smaller pixel area available down to 1x1 for more intricate display work. I believe the slider only allows down to 10x10 right now. After working on hundreds of displays as a web designer, this would be a huge improvement and time saver for not only processbook to pivision display migration issues but also new and existing update and design. Also suggest the grid size input text box instead of slider for time management and efficiency while working.

  8. Multistate: Preview option

    As a PI Vision display builder, I would like to test the multistate setting to make sure it triggers/visualizes correctly.

    A "Test Functionality" option to see if the multistate on that page are functional

  9. Button / Text to pre-set start/stop time range.

    Provide configuration options on shapes / text / symbols to write values or expressions to Start Time and End Time of the current display.

    I have a production report table that uses the Range property of a bunch of totalizers to determine production quantities. Management often wants to know these over the time frames: Last Month, Month to Date, Last Day, Current Day, Last Night Shift, Last Day Shift, and Current Shift. I can only save the display with one of these presets, which means I have to create a copy of this display with each of these presets for…

  10. Move Fit-All option to checkbox on Format Display

    There is no way to determine if fit all option is on or off, if a display is edited, fit all is reset and most times the display is saved again without fit all. (and you cant just select fit all and resave)

    Move the fit all option to the display format screen as a checkbox and add a fit width check box option also.

    (I hope you will reconsider this idea, since it has been rejected before, it would save my users lots of time and confusion)

  12. Keep time range constant when changing time range in PI Vision

    PI Vision should keep the time range constant when changing the end time in a display. The current behavior (verified with tech support) is:
    - If the end time is * (now), one can type a valid timestamp in the end time box and a start time is calculated based on the current default span, such as -8h.
    - If the end time is not *, and has a timestamp string, when the string is edited and the user hits enter, the edited time is copied to the start time and the end time value prior to editing persists.

  13. Objects within SVG file should be detected by PI Vision

    The customer has a complex isometric drawing saved as an SVG file. It contains many objects (i.e., pipe sections, valves, etc.). The SVG file is currently being used as a background image in an existing PI Vision display. The customer would like to assign multi-states to the sub-objects within the SVG file, although it is currently not possible to do so out-of-the-box, as PI Vision treats the SVG and its objects as one image.

    The customer is looking for this feature for the following reasons:
    - It would avoid the need to manually create the complex isometric drawing within PI…

  14. Enable adjustable Y-scale for boolean values.

    When comparing multiple on-off Boolean values in Trend symbol, they all overlap over each other. It would be useful to have a setting to be able to adjust the Y-scale height of each bollean values so we can compare them better.

  15. Enable the ability to add a comment or description when saving a display

    It would be good to be able to add a comment/descriptor when saving a PI Vision display. Especially now that PI Vision 2021 is working on saving a display to a file this becomes even more relevant, as we will be able to indirectly create versions of displays.

  16. Open Multiple URLs

    I have displays that contain data for the site level (multiple assets - look across). The site level display allows for selection of any of the assets at the site with an appropriate time period where the asset is operational. Each site level display contain hyperlinks to several asset sub-system display (~6 subsystems). The user can select any of the subsystem displays to view detail information.

    A feature enhancement for users would be to allow a single link to be selected and multiple subsystem displays would open in new tabs with appropriate time/asset context. User clicks could be greatly reduced…

  17. Edit rights on home folder

    Possibility to change rights for the home folder.
    Currently, anyone with publisher rights can save and share displays in the home folder, even when they only have write access on the lowest subfolder of a folder. This results in thousand displays in the home folder, making it a mess.

  18. Display child element attributes of Collection assets

    I would like to be able to display the attribute values of child elements from repeated assets in a Collection. For example a Unit asset may have child elements (also assets) of Gas Turbine and Steam Turbine.

    In PI Vision 2020 you can repeat the Unit asset but any attribute values of a child element (e.g. Gas Turbine speed) are not displayed - their path is changed so that the attribute is associated with the repeated asset:

    Original attribute path: \server\afbase\unit1\gas_turbine|speed
    Collection attribute path: \server\afbase\unit1|speed

    This functionality is available for asset swapping - the 'use current asset as root' option.

  19. Customize Right Click Options

    Ability to customize the right click dropdown box. Adding functions that I use frequently would be awesome instead of having to go to the toolbar EVERY SINGLE TIME I want to align the center of 2 or more objects is aggravating.
