  2. Display Slideshow

    Functionality so choose multiple Coresight displays and have Coresight automatically show the displays rotating from one to another in a slide show type fashion.

    This is typically for showing displays in 'public areas' such as a big screen in the company cafeteria.

  4. Tool to list all PI Tags and AF Attributes mapped to any display

    Right now I get errors in Event Viewer on my Vision server saying "Server is not available".  The server it mentions is our Dev server, which means somehow a tag or attribute got to Prod without being converted.  But the error doesn't tell me the tag or the display.  So I have no way of troubleshooting this without individually checking each and every display or spending all my time digging through the SQL to figure out where all the config information is hidden.

    The other use case is: if as a PI admin I want to change the name of…

  5. Increase the update rate of data in PI Vision displays

    As a PI Vision user I would like to be able to increase the update rate of PI Vision displays to less than 5 seconds and even sub-seconds so I can use it for trending.

  7. Collection template and instances

    It would be great to be able to define a "collection template" and use "instances" of that in different displays. If the Template is modified, all Instances are modified too.
    That feature is already done in AF with template and elements.
    The logical consequence would be to have that in PI Vision too.
    I use a certain collection many times by copying and pasting it and adjusting the collection criteria for each. If i need to modify the collections, i either need to do it for each manually or modifying one and copy paste them all over again. Both is…

  8. Easily choose between AF attribute name and actual PI tag name

    When creating a display using attributes (i.e. - Agitator Speed), I would like to be able to easily toggle between the name and the actual tag ID. I have access to PI System Explorer, so I can go and find it, but my end users do not and in some instances would like to display the actual tag and not the attribute name.

  10. PI Vision Trend: Option to Display Full AF Attribute Path in Trend Legend

    Currently in a PI Vision Trend you can only see the full Attribute Path by hovering over the attribute name in the legend. If the attributes have differently named parent elements, then the legend will show the Parent Element and attribute name only, it will not show the parent element's parent element or more than that. If the parent elements are named the same, then the PI Vision trend will only show the Attribute name. For example, in the attached image there is a trend with 2 attributes named "Attribute", the first one has the following path: "\\AARVM1\854090\Parent1\Child 1.1\Child 1.1.1|Attribute",…

  11. Migrating Folder Structure Between PI Vision Environments with the PI Vision Display Utility

    As of right now, there is no easy way to copy the folder structure. It would either have to be recreated manually or the entire database restored via a backup.

    If the PI Vision Display Utility could also migrate the folder structure it would be a big help for users and administrators.

  12. Sort displays in a different way (e.g. by name/title) other than by last time accessed

    PI Vision puts the most recently accessed display on the top. I would like to sort the displays by name/title (in alphabetical order).

  13. Fully customisable Homepage/Landing Page

    A Homepage/Landing page that we can place navigation buttons on is a much nicer user experience than browsing folders to find a display.  While the planned folder structure of organising displays is better than what is currently offered, and there are a couple of Homepage "ideas" already posted, they don't really have a clear idea of what they want. A user friendly way of navigating the hundreds of pages and trends that we have is required.  Currently 300 or so pages and probably more again in trends.  See attachment as an example.

  15. Replace values with Drag and Drop - Previous Functionality Lost

    The previous version of Coresight allowed users to choose a new asset from the asset tree and drag it onto the screen to either add new values, or replace the previous values. This was very beneficial, however the 2016 version does not provide this option it appears.

    Can we get that functionality back? I'd like to pull a new asset from the left and be prompted to either replace values or add it to the existing screen. Thank you!

  16. Displays Page Asset View: Display Navigation by AF Hierarchy

    Have a 'Asset View' on the Displays Page to enable a user to browse / navigate the AF hierarchy tree, click on an element, and see the displays related to that element.

  18. Display Utility options for duplicate displays

    I would like the PI Vision Display Utility to give me a warning and options if I try to move displays to a target database that has existing displays with the same names. This would avoid unintentionally creating duplicate displays with the same name.

    It might also be useful if the tool gave me options in this case such as:
    1) Acknowledge the warning and create the duplicate displays
    2) Rename the new displays before adding them to the target database so  that they are no longer duplicate names
    3) Overwrite the existing target database's displays with the new displays…

  19. Expose display hierarchy in run mode to help navigate between linked displays

    If a display contains navigational links to other displays it would be nice to see this hierarchy and be able to easily switch between linked displays.

  20. Trend Cursor - Slow Data Values

    I've the noticed when adding a trend cursor, that the data values take a very long time to show up. This happens instantaneously in Procesbook, but takes 10-15 seconds in PI Vision, which doesn't make the tool very friendly to use.
