  2. Add Processbook Electric T&D Symbol to PI Vision

    PI vision currently does not have the Electric T&D symbols library that is included in Processbook. In the next release of PI Vision we would like to see these symbols available in processbook. Using the PI ProcessBook Migration Tool (PI Vision 2019) is not a viable workaround to use these symbols.

  3. Improve Digital State visualization in PI Vision

    The digital state visualization PI Vision needs to be improved to allow the observation of the value with the time. The visualization of digital state values in PI Vision with trends has the following limitations:
    • It is not possible to have trend stacking: https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/320517-pi-vision/suggestions/13734045-trend-stacking
    • It is not possible to customize ranges for the traces outside the digital state values: https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/320517-pi-vision/suggestions/43035336-trend-with-digital-state-show-only-digital-state
    What we need is a modern visualization symbol that allows stack trend traces and properly shows the digital state variation with time. When hovering with the pointer we would like to display all values for that timestamp in…

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. Offer a new Time Series native symbol

    As a PI Vision user I want to be able to add time series of an AF Attribute with PIPoint data reference or directly a PI Tag to a table and see each and every recorded values with their timestamps for the time range of the display's time bar. Of course with scrolling functionality like other existing table symbols.

    I need to visualize each individual recorded values to understand how production cycles are triggered for example. Other use case would be to visualize individual values around a peak.

  7. Plot markers for all archived events for step tags

    When plotting a tag with the "step" attribute on in a PI Vision trend with the scatter plot trace option, not all archived events are shown.
    A workaround is to create a Formula Data Reference attribute in AF that points to the tag with the stepped option off.

  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. Custom Symbols using PIWebAPI in PI Vision

    Dear OSIsoft Support Team,

    We are currently developing with WebAPI for some custom symbols in PI Vision.

    We know that currently PI Vision 2020 no longer requires PIWebAPI and we would like to know if the PIWebAPI is going to be deprecated in the future or if it's a tool that is in OSIsoft roadmap for the future

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Add tag name/AF path in sidebar

    Add the tag name/AF path to the sidebar. When modifying a symbol on a Vision display, the name of the tag or AF path is not in the sidebar. It would be very helpful to see this when editing a symbol.

  16. Adding title position selection for Trend plots

    With Trend plots there's an issue where the cursor index can cover the title of the trend - by default the title is located on the top left of the trend plot.

    The suggestion would be either:

    1.) Make the title move up if you hover with the cursor so that the cursor doesn't cover the title.

    OR / AND

    2.) Add the ability to select the position of the title for trend plots just as it is possible for XY plots.

  17. Is there an API that allows access to PI Vision?

    I am wanting to access features within PI Vision such as:
    -Creating a new display
    -Saving a display
    -Moving a display from one folder to another
    -Querying information about each display (such as number of symbols, symbol types, display owner, etc..)

    Is there some kind of API that can be accessed to do all of these things?

  18. 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

  19. 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…
