  1. 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…

  2. Multistate Symbol Bulk Editing

  3. Trend: Scale grouping

    On the trend symbol, we would like to select specific tags to share a single scale which auto-updates, while the other tags use independent scales. All on the same trend.

    For example on the same trend,
    • PICXXXXXX.PV & PICXXXXXX.SV need to share a single scale which auto-updates using the range of their plotted values.
    • PICXXXXXX.MV & ZTPXXXXXX.PV need to share a single scale which auto-updates using the range of their plotted values.
    • Tag PICXXXXXX.MODE needs to be on its own axis scale

    The solution provided for the idea titled "Trend: Shared dynamic scales" creates a single scale…

  6. Add PI Vision display option to show XY plot Regression line equation

    In PI Vision 2019, it is now possible to add a regression line to an XY plot (See: User Guide PI Vision 2019>XY Plot>Format data pairs for an XY plot) However there is no way to see the equation of this line.
    In PI ProcessBook it was possible to see the regression line's coefficients on hover.

  7. Trend: Time Range: Duration and Offset - Add option to support start time

    Currently the Trend object's Time Range has a Duration and Offset option which will take the End Time of the display and a specified duration for the trend's timerange. We need to have the ability to do the same based on the Start Time and a duration. Can you please add a new Time Range option "Duration and Offset from Start"?

    The use case for this is that we are comparing batch phases against a golden batch's phase, but the phase duration can and do differ. Having an option to have the trend start at a selected batch phase's start…

  8. Custom time ranges in custom symbols

    Set the new functionality introduced in PI Vision 2020 (Custom Time range) available for custom symbols too, as right now is is built into the native Trend symbol for PI Vision 2020 only

  9. Allow for PI Vision Attribute Collection Filter to Filter on Digital States

    As a PI Vision user, I would like to be able to perform an attribute filter on my collection symbol to filter out attributes with certain digital states so that I can have a collection which does not contain assets with an attribute which has a value of "I/O Timeout" or some other digital state value. Currently, if you want to filter out a digital state, you need to set a rule like "Attribute =! 246", where 246 would be the numerical value for the digital state. This is inconvenient because this would then also cause the collection to filter…

  11. Bring back column filters in event frame tables!

    the column filters in event frame tables were great! with the addition of other attributes in tables, I was really looking forward to having column filters on these as well. this allows for much greater slicing of event frames and much better performance.

  13. Show exact archive value on PI Vision trend cursor

    As a PI Vision user, when analyzing trends I would like to see the exact archive or interpolated value for Trend data items when I place a cursor. Currently the Trend data set is used to interpolate an approximate value.

    In PI Vision 2020, we added trace options for data markers which show the archive values with the markers. Dropping a cursor at the timestamp of an archived value will show that archived value.

    Does this meet the requirements for this feedback request?

  14. 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

  15. 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.)

  17. 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.

  18. On Trend symbols, have the option to specify database limits from AF or from the PI Data Archive

    Trend symbols can be configured with Scale Range using Database Limits.
    Have the option to specify database limits from AF or from the PI Data Archive

    A Trend for a pi point attribute has AF Limits based on formula, analytics or pi point.
    If the trend time context is in the future, but the limit attributes do not have future data, then the trend will use the PI Point's Zero and Span tag attributes from the Data Archive.
    If the Database Limits are set for AF, then the last limit attribute value should always be used for the y-axis scale

  19. Add the ability to reset PI Vision's cache for a particular PI Tag

    As a PI Vision user, I would like to be able to reset the snapshot cache for a particular PI Tag.

    This would be useful in the scenario where the most recent value for a PI Tag has been deleted or backfilled as it would provide a way to ensure that PI Vision value symbols are showing the correct value without having to recycle the PIVisionServiceAppPool, close out of the display, or wait until the PI tag receives a new snapshot value.

  20. Add filtering options to the columns of Asset Comparison Tables

    Currently, we can modify Asset Comparison Tables by editing the PI Vision display and applying dynamic search criterias. I would like to do it in an easier way, where I click on the column that interests me and it suggests some filters, like Excel tables.
