  1. Provide a parent/child template approach to PI Vision displays

    Creating a base display template from which other PI Vision display templates could be derived could save a lot of time and keep standardized displays updated with corporate standards.

  2. Have the ability to left align charts on the Y axis rather than than the object edge

    When putting scale labels outside the chart and left aligning the charts the axis does not line up if the labels are significantly different in significant digits.

    This is especially obvious in collections.

  4. Asset Page Nav top and Bottom

    When browsing assets with more than 1 page of assets found, you have to scroll to the bottom to move to next page, it would be handy to have page navigation arrows at top and bottom of asset list

  5. Detach Asset Menu

    Have a detachable asset menu so that when designing a full screen layouts, you can have asset menu/events/graphics in a window on a second monitor

  6. Symbol Properties: Set exact symbol position in pixels

    As an addition to the feedback item "Symbol Properties: Set exact symbol size in pixels", it would be really useful to be able to set the exact position of symbols. This would make it a lot faster to line up symbols with each other.

    The option to align left/middle/right or distribute horizontally/vertically helps somewhat, but often fails to do exactly what is needed. Being able to directly enter the position would alleviate that problem and make authoring Displays a lot faster and less frustrating.

  7. Hide "Create Display" Button Option for Explorer

    e.g. AD Groups which should have only access on displays not on creating. At the moment all users have the ability to create displays allthough displays cant be saved.

  8. Basic Layout and Visual Manipulation

    Request: Be able to edit data charts formatting.

    We can currently change a background or foreground color, but cannot change text color for axis, or choose to have no axis labels. Custom Axis names are not available either. Granted, this can be done if you import data into excel, but excel is not live data, which is what makes pi great.

  9. Alert when not the owner (write access) of a display when entering "build mode"

    Often work has been done on a PI Vision display (with a known/published URL) only to realise you were not the owner when hitting the "save" button. A prompt when editing starts, or keeping the save button in the "inactive" state if not the display owner would help prevent this re-work.

  10. Access Vision Displays By Name Instead of ID

    When migrating displays from one environment to another using the Vision display utility there is no guarantee the ID will remain the same in the destination environment. Since Vision displays can only be linked to via ID, all links in both Vision and ProcessBook files would need to change. This significantly complicates the migration process and makes it very error-prone.

  13. PI Vision Page Authoring Tools Improvement

    I noticed quite a number of issues while attempting to author a new PI Vision Page. Here are a list of things that are lacking in PI Vision compared to PI ProcessBook and needs to be included into PI Vision as soon as possible:
    1. Unable to Copy and Paste the Format from one Graphic/ Object to other Graphics/ Objects
    2. Limited Color Options in Format Shape/ Text/ Background/ Display
    3. Unable to Resize Grouped Graphics/ Objects
    4. Unable to set up Layers
    5. Value Text does not reflect Multistate color settings, only the shades behind the Value Text reflect…

  14. Set the size of the display

    A way to set the maximum size of a display, with the number of pixels or inches/centimeters, or even its size based on a common screen display would be really helpful.

  17. Allow multistating based on conditions from multiple data items

    As a PI Vision user, I would like to add multistates to my display's symbols that depend on conditions of multiple data items. For example, when the pump status tag has a value of "Active" and the pump flowrate tag has a value less than 10, turn the value symbol red.

  18. Allow the manipulation of PI Vision Displays using PI Builder

    It would be very beneficial to be able to export the attributes/tags with some simplified symbol column (so you could tell which was which in large displays) in order to update displays as your AF Hierarchy or AF Templates mature.This would also help with many other aspects of building consistent PI Vision displays.
    Another aspect of this might include the multistate associated with the symbol.

  19. Add keyboard shortcuts for object resizing

    Add keyboard shortcuts for resizing objects (e.g., embedded images). In PowerPoint, for example, you can resize shapes by holding Shift (or Shift+Ctrl) and using the arrow keys.
