  1. Ad-hoc trend with multiple selected attributes

    Build trend with multiple traces based on a display data (for instance, from a table). PI Vision user should be able to select multiple items on the table and then trend them on a single ad-hoc trend to compare. The ad-hoc trend should appear in a pop-up window (which you can move) in the same browser tab and the user should be able to switch between the main screen and the ah-hoc trend window to drag and drop more attributes from tables and value symbols on the screen. It's very important to see both ad-hoc trend and the main display…

  2. 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.

  3. Trend: Multiple Trend Cursors

    As a process engineer, it is helpful to see values at several points of interest on a trend at the same time.

    We are currently working on providing the ability to add multiple cursors to a trend for the PI Vision 2019 release.

    UPDATE: It will be possible to add multiple cursors to trends on displays as well as popup trends and to the trend in the new ad hoc workspace that is being introduced in PI Vision 2019.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    Options to select a data frequency when exporting data from a display will be included in the PI Vision 4.0 release.

  8. 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…

  9. 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

  10. Ability to change time when trending an individual attribute/tag value in a pop up trend

    For a ProcessBook display published to Coresight, if a user selects single object - value, trend, multistate, etc - and double-clicks to bring up a full screen adhoc trend, the Coresight time controls are still at the bottom and can be used to control time range and move around in history.

    If a user tries same in a native Coresight display - the time inherited in the popup trend is from the main display with no capability to modify.  The user must set the time slice in the main display before going to an adhoc trend.

  12. 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".

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. "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

  19. Increase Number of Values that Can be Exported

    In PI Vision 2017 R2, 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.

  20. 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.
