  1. Support multiple time ranges for trends on a display

    Have the ability to support multiple time ranges for trends on a display.  For example a trend might be configured as showing the last 8 hours, another one as the last 7 days, and another one the last month.

  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. 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.

  4. Replay Time / Playback Time

    Be able to go back in history and "replay" what happened while looking at a display.

    Also potentially integrate this with event frames, i.e. the ability to replay what happened leading up to an event, during event, and after an event.

  5. Export Data Supports Data Frequency

    As a process engineer, I would like to be able to control the data frequency (minute, hour, etc.) of how much data is exported for my time range rather than a fixed number of data points SO THAT the data that I export can actually be used for some analysis rather than data that is too sparse to be used.

  6. Visualize Questionable Flag

    The visualisation of the questionable flag on trends. We map ‘suspect’ SCADA quality to the questionable flag, and it is very useful visualising this on trends as it indicates an issue, and the data on the trend can be held in question

  7. Trend Digital States and Enumeration Sets

    Trend Digital States - Currently on a Trend Graph that is trending digital state tags, viewing the Y Axis, you can only see the bottom value and the top value within a given timerange, whereas any state that is in between this range is not represented on the Y Axis, unless you change the timerange, or hover over the in between state to see the value. Please add all Digital States in there proper location on the Y Axis.

    While trending AF attributes that are linked to an enumeration set, and all the attributes share the same enumeration set, then…

  8. URL Parameters for Ad Hoc Trend properties

    Configure properties of Ad Hoc trends using URL parameters. For example, add "&backgroundcolor=white" or "&multiplescales" and other parameters to set Trend properties that are otherwise only set by selecting "Format Trend".

  9. Asset Comparison Display

    Be able to easily create an asset comparison display where the same attribute on an asset is compared against other similar assets (for example, based on template) over a time range.

    For example, compare the MW produced on all Wind Turbines over the last day, which on a trend the traces would be the name of each asset.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 93111.

    In the PI Vision 2017 release, we introduced Collections and an Asset Comparison Table, both of which allow you to quickly and easily compare attributes across similar assets.

    We are looking for feedback on whether or not these features satisfy this request for an Asset Comparison Display.

  11. Asset Comparison: Trend with multiple elements with specific attributes

    Testing Coresight 2016. After searching for all the elements I want to display on one graph, I want to be able to select the attributes I want to display. Currently, can only drag all the elements onto the display, which creates a trend with all the elements and all their attributes.

    I would like to be able to select the elements I want, then drag an attribute from the Attributes section and have it create a trend of all the selected elements with the selected attribute or even multiple attributes.

  12. Drag to manipulate trend scale values

    As a process engineer, I should be able to manipulate trend scales by dragging the top or bottom of the y axis so that I can align curves and similar patterns of data for comparison.

  14. Trend Matrix Display / Auto Sizing Trends

    Have the ability to create a display of trends organized in a configurable matrix (1x1, 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 2x4, etc.). The sizing of the trends on the display would be automatically sized by the Coresight application to auto-fit the screen and minimize white space.

    A key point here is to make sure the trend area has the same width so comparison across trends is easy.

  15. "Related attributes" feature in PI Vision

    As a maintenance operator, I want the ability to select a symbol in PI Vision (symbol, image. e) and have a Related Attributes pane show other attributes that belong to the same element. This would allow me to quickly drag the attributes from that pane onto a trend and observe how my asset behaved over time

  16. Increase Number of Values that Can be Exported

    In PI Vision, only 3,600 values can be exported from a display as CSV and XML. It would be great to be able to increase this limit.

  17. Export data in kiosk mode

    A display that is in kiosk mode no longer has the option to export data to an XML file. Adding this feature would be useful whenever the vision display is embedded in another website.

  18. Show the Tag and PI Interface for an Attribute on a Display

    Have a way to see the source PI interface somewhere on the display for monitoring and troubleshooting reasons. For example, if there's a flat line on the data.

  19. Ad Hoc XY Plot

    Double-clicking on a XY Plot trend creates a popup time-series trend with all points instead of zooming XY Plot. It should maximize the XY plot to create a full screen popup XY Plot instead.

    Also, it should be possible to have XY plot in the ad hoc workspace.

  20. Time range zoom: zoom in on a trend while fixing y axis

    Would like to have more functions to play around with a trend in Vision.
    Instead of drawing a box, it will be nice to have functionality like fixing in the middle and drag left or right to adjust the width of x axis while keeping the y axis range the same to zoom in on the time range of a trend.
