  1. Show the scale for a trend on the right side of the trend

    Trend y-axis scales should be able to be shown on both sides of a trend.When plotting two tags with different scales, having one scale on the right and one on the left would improve trend readability.

  2. Table: Labeling Options for Name column

    Add ability to control what is shown in the Name column. This should have the same options as other symbols: attribute name only, description, asset name, or use custom label to provide a friendly name

  3. Display attribute traits on PI Vision tables

    It would be nice to display attribute traits such as maximum and minimum on PI Vision; it can only display targets

  5. Filter asset collections by existence of active event frames

    Add symbol collection search criteria to filter assets by the existence of related event frames active over the time range of the display (HasEvents?)

    Allow the acknowledgement state of those events to serve as an additional filter (HasUnacknowledgedEvents?)

    Integration would then be seamless between symbol collections and event tables, where events may be acknowledged from within PI Vision directly.

  7. Single Gauge with Multiple Values

    Configure gauges using multiple attribute values. As an example, if you have a tank that has 2 level sensors, it would be helpful to show both levels in 1 gauge. Currently we accomplish this by creating 2 gauges and putting 1 on top of the other, but having a single symbol with both would be more functional.

  8. Option to Disable Snapshot Values on Trends

    As a PI Vision end user, I would like an option to disable snapshot data on trend symbols. Currently, when a display's end time is set to "Now" and trends update in real-time, incoming snapshot values are cached and included as part of its traces whether those values are later compressed out or not.

    This can cause issues with connector data as PI Connectors do not support exception testing and often send very high frequency data. The resulting traces can become noisy to the point of uselessness even at fine-grained time ranges (ex: one minute).

    Ideally, trend symbols should have…

  9. Custom text for symbol label

    Hello,

    is it possible to assign the symbol to one attribute of the AF element/ tag but to present the label (name) from another attribute (string) of that same element?

  10. Couple/decouple a symbol's data reference with its multistate reference

    Provide a multistate toggle to synchronize a symbol's data reference with the multistate reference. When changes are made to the symbol's data item (e.g. display reuse) the multistate will reflect that change too.

  12. Add events table to collection

    To be able to have event tables within Collection (this is mandatory)
    Event tables are feed with events matching the collection asset.

    It is different than the idea https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/320517/suggestions/35062504

  14. Set symbol size independent of font size

    Currently, the font size is directly related to symbol size. This is problematic when migrating button symbols from PI ProcessBook to PI Vision, since they will not retain their width. This leads to manual work being required to adjust the display layout after displays are migrated.

    An alternative solution would be to add a button symbol to PI Vision that can be sized independently of the symbol's font size.

  15. Allow adjustment of the position of trend cursor labels

    When we want to show the timestamps and values at 2 very close points of time, the trend cursors (sliders) will overlap each other by default, obscuring the timestamps.

    Of course, we can zoom in the trend so that the sliders are further apart.
    But there will still be times when a broad range of duration is needed to be shown at the same screen with multiple slides and information needed at different points of time. Hence, it'll be good to have such a feature to allow users to freely adjust the height of the slider boxes.

  16. Compare data over different time ranges on the same trend

    As a process engineer, I need to be able to overlay traces on the same trend with data from different time ranges so that I can compare different point in time. This may be the same data item over different time ranges or multiple different data items over different time ranges.
