  1. 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.

  3. Table: Support Different Table Styles

    Similar to tables in Word / PowerPoint, support several different styling options for tables. Additionally, support the ability for a user to style a table exactly how they want it (with background fill colors, text colors, etc.).

  4. Allow option to prevent trend interpolation after the most recent data value

    Currently, trends interpolate a line after the most recent data value--which means that if the last value occurred two hours ago a flat line will be drawn on the trend from the last value until now, which can erroneously give the impression that data has been received during that time period.  If interpolation could be disabled, this would have the trend not draw a flat line after the most recent value, but rather simply terminate the trend line at the last data point.  This is related to the following related item: https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/555148-pi-server/suggestions/18496177-add-new-pipointattribute-for-staletimeout; however, adding this option to the trend…

  6. Analysis Expression Tooltip in PI Vision like in PSE

    The customer would like to see when hovering on an attribute that shows calculated data which is the expression that gives that output.

    Something similar of what you see PSE (image attached)

    They have users requesting for it, they would not like to have to give access to the users to see this information in PI Vision.

    They would like to know if the analysis expression has the correct functions and variables.

  7. Table of data from an external database

    As a PI Vision user, I want to view a table of data from an ODBC data source on a display alongside my PI data so that I can see related information from other systems of record.

  9. Polar plot

    I want to be able to do a polar plot! We have the need to monitor deformation in the stator of a hydro turbine. The you can see if the stator is oval.
    The time-series data behind must have an configurable time space.
    Start time, period.

  10. 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…

  12. More flexible data table/matrix

    I need a more flexible table tool where I can decide exactly what goes in each cell. They could come from related attributes or from PI tags, and each box in the table shows something separate.  Here is a screen shot of what I would like, but currently have had to create by brute force in ProcessBook.

  13. Ability to change image/graphic based on a data item's value

    Hi there,

    Please add a feature for "MultiState Graphics"

    This would be a simple feature where if a value for a tag or asset was equal to something then the image would change.

    An example of this would be if you had an image of a moving turbine which indicated that a turbine was active as the status tag was equal to 100 but if the status tag was equal to 0 then the turbine was not active and an image of a still (not moving turbine was shown.

    This would be a very helpful feature, I am happy to…

  14. Stacked Y-axis Event Frame Gantt symbol

    The X axis is time based. Event Frames are “stacked” on the Y axis with the length of each determined by the event duration.

  15. Adding / Configuring the Marker Size/Format in XY Plot

    Adding / Configuring the Marker Size/Format in XY Plot.
    Having a lot of markers in the XY plot the point cloud gets unusable because of Marker Size is to big
    So either definition of own smaller Marker ( hair cross - single pixel ...) or an option to change marker size would Help

  16. Load Duration Curve (LDC) in PIVision symbol

    Symbols in PIVision for displaying load duration curves based on PItags.

    I have created two PI vision symbols for LDC with using extensibility. (I have modified the xy-plot symbol).
    The first one creates LDCs for each series dropped on to chart. Different periods are set using the custom dates feature.

    The second one creates LDCs for the same PItag where the periods of data is given by a PItag (ie the Pitag holds maintenance dates).

    I will provide my code to OSIsoft on request.

    Wikipedia gives this definition of LDC: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loaddurationcurve
    Search Duration Curve on google for more…

  17. Easier multistating of grouped symbols

    As a PI Vision display creator, I would like to be able to easily multistate objects after I have grouped them together. This way all of the objects can have the same conditions for multistating (e.g. multiple adjacent sections of piping in a process diagram, or multiple adjacent electrical components in an electrical diagram).

    Currently, it is necessary to individually configure the same exact mulitstating behavior on each separate symbol in the group.

  19. 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.

  20. Exporting table symbols directly (as it is) to Microsoft Excel or Word
