  1. Display a question mark in trends when an event is questionnable and an icon when the event is annotated

    Display a question mark in trends when an event is questionnable and an icon when the event is annotated with the possibility to read the annotation by hovering the mouse over the icon (as it is done in Processbook)

  2. Fill under trend (area chart)

    Fill the area between the trend line and 0 (or a configurable value) with color (otherwise known as an area chart). This makes deviations from a desired value much easier to see.

  3. Plot markers for all archived events for step tags

    When plotting a tag with the "step" attribute on in a PI Vision trend with the scatter plot trace option, not all archived events are shown.
    A workaround is to create a Formula Data Reference attribute in AF that points to the tag with the stepped option off.

  7. Change fontsize for trendscale, gaugescale etc

    The fontsize of the scale for the different symbols, is sometimes to small. I would be nich if this could be adjusted.

  8. rounded rectangle

    PI Vision should support rounded rectangle symbols.

    Currently, the only option to make a rounded rectangle is to group several lines and arcs, which leads to more time rendering and cleaning up the extra symbols.

  9. Have static or excluded attribute not change the trends limits

    As verified with tech support, static and excluded AF attributes effect the trend limits when chosing the "database limits" option.

    Static attributes have a min and maximum automatic limit of zero, so if you put them together with PI Point attributes in a single scale trend, the bottom y-limit will be forced to zero using the "database limits" option, even if the PI Point/PI Point attributes lower limits are above zero. So if you want to show horizontal line of 5,for example, in a trend, that will force the lower limit of the trend to 0.

    Excluded attributes also cause…

  10. URL parameter to configure trend scale range

    Using URL parameters I am aware of being able to select either single or multiple scales for ad-hoc trends.
    I would like to be able to specify the zero and span of the ad-hoc trend via URL parameters. This would standardize all ad-hoc trends shared between our PI Vision Users without needing to update the database settings for our data items or manually adjust each ad-hoc trend.

  11. Trend: Multistate trend graphic

    We are using PI Vision to provide a single dashboard view of our dams across the state. However, not all dams use the same suite of level indications. As such, we are using derived templates to discern the differences.

    It would be wonderful if we could keep the levels for (say) dam-type 'A' as one trend graphic, then multistate the graphic to that it "disappears" when dam-type 'B' is selected; at which time the dam-type 'B' levels trend graphic is displayed.

    Similar functionality is currently available for the "value" graphic. Hence, would it be possible to apply equivalent logic for…

  12. Markers on a trend for a PI Point with Step=1 show two values at the first event's timestamp when it should only show the new value

    Currently, when using markers on a trend symbol in PI Vision and the PI Point has Step=1, the timestamp of the first event in the display time range will show two values stacked vertically. These two values are the old and new value at the first event's timestamp. When I select the Scatter Plot option to remove the connecting line between markers, it is impossible to tell which marker shows the old or new value. It is not useful to display two values at the same timestamp on the trend, when I can't see which is newer.

    As a PI…

  13. Allow all limit attributes to be added as columns in Tables

    Currently only the Target limit attribute is able to be added as a column in Table symbols. It would be nice to be able to add the other limit attributes (e.g. HiHi, LoLo, etc) to be added as columns too.

  14. Allow NaN on limits for PI Vision 2021

    We evaluate alarms that are not configured to NaN so that we can properly display alarm limits to the user for only the limits that are used.

    We upgraded to Pi Vision 2021 to correct an issue we found during one of our support cases for slow call-up performances when minimum/maximum limit traits were used. While the performance has been significantly improved to open the gauge element, the multi-state evaluation shows as "Bad Data" due to multistate limits attributes that evaluate to "NaN". In the previous version of Vision, "NaN" attributes were ignored and the color animation would display properly.

  15. Is there an API that allows access to PI Vision?

    I am wanting to access features within PI Vision such as:
    -Creating a new display
    -Saving a display
    -Moving a display from one folder to another
    -Querying information about each display (such as number of symbols, symbol types, display owner, etc..)

    Is there some kind of API that can be accessed to do all of these things?

  16. Control visibility of Image symbol through use of multi-state

    Would like to control the visibility of an image symbol by setting its fill value to "Transparent" via the Multi-State functionality.
    Bonus: Would be nice to display different image files dynamically based on the values set in the Multi-State functionality. IE: image1.png <= 1, image2.png <=2, image3.png

  17. Official support for an iFrame symbol in PI Vision

    Currently many customers are using custom extensions to provide iFrame support to PI VIsion.

    Use cases include integration with 3rd party applications (o365, Power BI, video feeds, maps, etc.)

  18. Display multiple value symbols for the same tag at different timestamps

    For example, a display containing two value symbols that display data for a tag. One value symbol shows the value for the tag at a specified time yesterday and the other one shows the value if the tag at a specified time today.

  19. Add option to hide 'No items match the Collection Criteria' banner in Collection

    I want to show flows where only one source is active at a time. Using a number of arrows and gauges - but the orientation changes on the display.

    Collections are a great option here, but I want to hide that banner when the criteria is not met (the particular source is not active).

    Make this a switch that I can turn on/off in the criteria dialog.

  20. Include Target attribute limit in Multistates in PI Vision

    Currently only the target attribute limit is not included when pulling attribute limits from AF limits. It would be nice for it to be included so that I can configure multistate colors based on whether or not the value is above or below the target. This would make Multistating more consistent with the Target indicator avaliable on Value and Table symbols.
