  1. 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.

  2. Trend: Set lower or upper limit only for scale range

    Currently we can set the Y-Axis limits to be dependent on the plotted values or set both the upper and lower limit.

    I would like to be able to fix either the upper or lower limit, and have the other limit still be dependent on the plotted values.

  3. 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…

  4. Option to not render bad data in XY Plot

    Add an option to the XY Plot to not render bad data in the trend when either x or y is bad. Currently plots the value along the axis when the x or y is bad.

  5. 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.

  6. Include border of polygons when setting transparency through Multi-State

    Would be nice if all components of a polygon symbol were included when setting the fill to "Transparent" via Multi-State. Currently, if you want to turn on or off the visibility of a polygon (IE rectangle) only the fill is affected and the border is left behind still being displayed. Either that or give us Multi-State control over the border as well.
    Currently, the work around is to create two rectangles and set the layering so one is slightly bigger and behind the front rectangle so it looks like a border and set the Multi-State on the two symbols using…

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. Parallel Coordinate Plot (PCP) Symbol

    Add a Parallel Coordinate Plot symbol that allows for analyzing many different variables at once to determine if any are drifting from their set point.

  11. 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.

  12. Asset comparison table symbol to show child attribute only in column name

    This is needed to fit all (or maximum) column on one screen in the table
    Currently we have to see column name as Parent attribute|Child Attribute. If this is enabled to have only child attribute in column name then maximum number of columns can be fit into one screen and table will look more better

  13. 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.)

  15. 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.

  17. Out of spec (min/max) shows up as bad data

    Data that is outside of the range of the Min and Max set in AF show up as 'bad data' in a multi-state display. This means instead of the display on the screen flashing red they turn blank (how our multi-state is setup)

    I think this shouldn't behave this way. If my temperature drops below the min I want it to be shown out of spec, not bad.

    I also can't just change the min and max as it drives the scale on the gauges.

  18. Bad value indicator

    Have a bad value indicator on value symbols - A triangular indicator specially in the value symbol which would indicate an exclamation mark when the quality of the data value is bad.

  20. Modify the scale step for PI Vision symbols (gauges, trend)

    When customizing symbol scale range, only top and bottom values can be specified. It would also be useful to set increment or step value to avoid unnecessary clutter on a display.
