  2. Make XY-Plot available for collections

    Most symbols can be dynamically organized into collections, which is very handy for comparing assets of different sites, where the number of assets vary.
    The XY-Plot does not support this function at the moment.

  3. Add "Sequence of Events" Symbol Type

    Add a table symbol which consists of the following 3 columns:

    Tag Name
    Tag Value
    Tag Timestamp (default sort on this column, ascending order)

    This table would consist of a set of tags over a specified time range.

    The purpose of this "Sequence of Events" table is for users to analyze the root cause and order of events that took place for a set of equipment. Typically your symbols in PI Vision and the way Datalink works is that each tag is separated into a separate column or row. The key feature here is to merge the tags into one…

  6. TABLE: Allow Asset Comparison table to be transposed

    In the paper industry, there are fewer assets at a site, but those assets tend to have many attributes (e.g., there may only be 3 paper machines, but each has 100 attributes of interest). It would be helpful if the Asset Comparison table in PI Vision could be transposed so that asset names were Column headings and attribute names were rows.
    For example, instead  of a table with 5 rows and 100 columns (that can't be seen all at once on one display page), it would be better to have four columns of assets names with 100 rows of values,…

  8. 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.

  9. Position of trend cursor should update other symbols in the display

    When scrolling a trend cursor, all other symbols in the screen (e.g. gauges) should display the value corresponding to the cursor's timestamp.
    This will enable better and simpler analysis of data directly in the screen.
    In the screenshot attached, one is trending "Engine's RPM" and one would like to see the gages update (Transmission, pedal position, etc) according to where in the trend the cursor is placed.

  10. Multistate Symbol / Symbol Formatting Bulk Editing

    Be able to bulk edit multistate symbols on a display by multi-selecting the symbols and editing the state's limit values in bulk.

    Be able to bulk edit formatting from multiple symbols at once.

  11. Trend: Ability to multistate trace pen color

    As a PI Vision user, I want to be able to configure a trend's trace color to be conditional based on the trace value. Each section of the trace should be colored appropriately based on its value at that time. See attached image for example.

  12. Request for Radar Plots

    A radar chart is a graphical method of displaying multivariate data in the form of a two-dimensional chart of three or more quantitative variables represented on axes starting from the same point. The relative position and angle of the axes is typically uninformative.

  14. Trend Legend Options

    It would be useful if the trend legend could be moved to below the trend as a table.

    This would have the following benefit:
    1) The size of the trend is not impacted by the length of the tags/attributes.
    2) You could have richer information in the table (current value, min, max, ....)
    3) The same table could be used for trace configuration

    To be honest I would provide the ability to have both the table below and the legend to the right. The user then has the option of showing/hiding the one they don't want.

  15. Ungroup collections

    Currently, Collection symbols cannot be ungrouped. It is possible to modify the collection criteria in order to decide what symbols and attributes to include. But there is no way to revert from a collection and re-use the symbols separately.
    The current workaround is to "Modify Collection" -> Copy the content of the collection -> Exit the collection -> Paste the content
    It should be natively possible to Ungroup collections as easily as it is to create one.

  16. FFT Trend

    Please provide a FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) frequency analysis trend. Best case scenario would be to right click (or otherwise select) a trend trace and convert back and forth between FFT and linear trends. It is indispensable for troubleshooting and determining frequency relationships and anomalies.

  18. Stacked area trends

    I would like to have the possibility to use most of the plot types present in Excel in Coresight.
    One of the most useful for me would be stacked area trends.

    We use it really often at corporative level to show, for example, plants contribution to the total production of the company.

  19. PI Vision Symbol Collection - Asset Order By Any Attribute

    I really like the new symbol collection in pi vision.

    I would like to have the possibility to order the assets in the collection not by name but by any attribute of the asset.

    That could be quite useful for sorting asset f.e. by sales or amount produced.

  20. Allow rotating and scaling groups of symbols

    Allow rotating groups of symbols! Once you've grouped symbols, I'd like to be able to rotate them as a group and to scale or enlarge them as a group as well, similar to how you can rotate and scale grouped drawing objects in Microsoft Office.
