  1. y-axis scale options

    Currently the y-axis options are Auto, Database, and Custom. The problem with Database and Custom is that they are static and fail to capture unusual events outside the normal expected range. The problem with Auto is that during normal operating times it tends to zoom too far in, thus highlighting some normal fluctuations. A combination of Custom/Database and Auto would be very useful. Allowing the axis to expand during the unusual time frames but then restricted it to only shrink back to the Custom/Database settings. Thus preserving the original context.

  2. XY Plot: Logarithmic scales for both axes

    It would be useful to be able to implement a logarithmic scale to either/both axes of xy plots. 

    Specific use case: Diagnose well conditions in real time by looking at conditions based on elapsed time since an event frame.  To be able to identify trends and perform diagnostics, this will need to be plotted as log Y vs log X (elapsed time).

  3. Asset Comparison Table does not show "No Data" when assets are missing attributes

    As a user of PI Vision, I would like my asset comparison table objects to not show "No Data" when I compare differing assets that do not necessarily share all of the listed attributes.  I would rather they appear as blank boxes as it more appealing to the user and gives them a better understanding of the actual asset behavior.

  4. Trend data from an external source

    As a PI Vision user, I want to trend relational or time-series data from an external ODBC data source alongside my PI data on a PI Vision display.

  5. Editor improvements


    1. I would like to be able to mark multiple symbols by drag and drop, now the only way is Ctrl+Click

    2. I use Ctrl+Drag to copy symbols in ProcessBook as I find it quicker and more precise when adding new objects to the display.

    3. Quick edit the tag/attribute on a value symbol: Change the tag/attribute on a value instead of having to add a new value from right hand menu

    4. Sizing: It would have been great having a sizing toolbar to set an absolute size, now it’s difficult to add two symbols with the same size

    5. Text alignment: I would love…

  6. Total

    In the Table column option could the Total also be included?

  7. Multistate driven from Event Frame context

    Drive a multistate symbol on a display from an Event Frame context. For example, turn the circle red if a 'Downtime' event on the asset is currently active.

  9. Configure regression line format on XY Plot

    As a display author, I would like to configure the format of a regression like (e.g color and line weight) so that the regression line stands out from the points on an XY Plot.

  10. Calendar view symbol for viewing data

    A tool that I have had many uses for is a calendar view tool that shows attributes, tags and the ability to MultiState them in a properly formed calendar.

    Attached is an example that we had to build with some other web controls talking to PI Web API.  I have several cases where this type of display tool in Vision is required.

  11. Shading in Trend Symbol

    With future tags and predictive data growing since PI 2015, it is good that PI Coresight can accept future tags.

    However, rarely do these data come as a discrete value. They usually have an associated prediction interval/uncertainty. For that reason, I put forward this enhancement request:

    The trend symbol needs to be able to accept an upper and lower bound and display a shaded region. E.g. https://www.knowledgeminer.eu/img/composite_2.png

  12. Event Type Duration Pie Chart

    Pie chart showing cumulative duration of event frames by event type for an asset(s) over a time period (ex: 24 hours).

    Trying to determine how much time you've spent in particular states over the past day.

  13. Multistate Change Shape / Image

    Be able to change a symbol shape and color. For example, green circles, orange triangles, red squares. This will help colorblind users.

  14. Allow drag drop replacement of X or Y variables in XY charts

    XY Charts are very versatile and allow substantial customization, from setting time ranges to point types, sizes, and colors.  Once considerable effort has been invested into customizing a plot to ones satisfaction, it is common to want to copy/paste that chart again and then simply change the data sources.  Right now, the XY Chart only allows you to add additional X or Y variables and then delete the old ones, but when you do this all of the settings return to their defaults.  I think it would be extremely valuable if, rather than adding a new series and deleting the…

  16. 3D navigable and filtrable plot (XYZ)

    Similarly to the XY plot, a XYZ 3D plot would be useful to inspect the trend of 3 variables in a 3D space and visually deduce correlations. Example could be the Environment Temperature, the Gas Valve Opening, and the Produced Power of a gas turbine. This graph should also be filtrable (e.g. I only want to see this data when the machine is operating under maximum power conditions).

  17. Clean up the Symbol Library to make it easier to find items

    The current symbol library of canned symbols is a little inconsistent, dated and would benefit from a clean up.

    For example, in Military you have a Fuel Truck, in Mining you have a number of Haulage trucks, but neither of these appear in Vehicles, if you are looking for a vehicle. I would expect to see all the vehicle symbols under Vehicles, as well i sin the industry segments.

    In Operator Interface you have Panels, but they do not appear in Panels.

    The symbol list should be clear what is by industry segment, and then what are generics. Under the…

  18. highlight above/below the limit trend section

    Highlight the PI Vision trend section that above/below the limit by changing the color of the trend in that section. Limits can come for PI AF (traits) but there should be an option to configure limits from PI Vision too (similar to how you configure multistage symbols).
