  1. Display multiple value symbols for the same tag at different timestamps

    For example, a display containing two value symbols that display data for a tag. One value symbol shows the value for the tag at a specified time yesterday and the other one shows the value if the tag at a specified time today.

  2. Trend with error bands/ limit bands, See attachment for visuals

    Is there a possibility to add error bands (or error bars) to a line plot in PI Vision? The error band could be based on an error signal, or two absolute value signals for the min and max. The error band most often show a confidence interval for a signal, and can vary across time, so visualizing a standard deviation only is not necessarily sufficient.

  5. Show the scale for a trend on the right side of the trend

    Trend y-axis scales should be able to be shown on both sides of a trend.When plotting two tags with different scales, having one scale on the right and one on the left would improve trend readability.

  6. Display attribute traits on PI Vision tables

    It would be nice to display attribute traits such as maximum and minimum on PI Vision; it can only display targets

  7. Set symbol size independent of font size

    Currently, the font size is directly related to symbol size. This is problematic when migrating button symbols from PI ProcessBook to PI Vision, since they will not retain their width. This leads to manual work being required to adjust the display layout after displays are migrated.

    An alternative solution would be to add a button symbol to PI Vision that can be sized independently of the symbol's font size.

  8. Option to disable trend cursor sync

    Not all users like synchronized trend cursors (placing a cursor on one trend causes it to appear on other trends at the same time), some find it very distracting. There should be an option to disable this functionality.

  9. Allow multistate for asset comparison columns to be based on the value of another attribute

    Want the ability to set multistate behavior on a attribute column based on another asset value – similar to Value, gauge and drawing symbols. If this can be done – should be able to do it as well for attribute columns which are strings. I would think it is based on a cell in a table at that point.

  10. Fill under trend

    Fill the area between the trend line and 0 (or a configurable value) with color. This makes deviations from a desired value much easier to see.

  11. Trend: Multistate trend graphic

    We are using PI Vision to provide a single dashboard view of our dams across the state. However, not all dams use the same suite of level indications. As such, we are using derived templates to discern the differences.

    It would be wonderful if we could keep the levels for (say) dam-type 'A' as one trend graphic, then multistate the graphic to that it "disappears" when dam-type 'B' is selected; at which time the dam-type 'B' levels trend graphic is displayed.

    Similar functionality is currently available for the "value" graphic. Hence, would it be possible to apply equivalent logic for…

  12. Allow NaN on limits for PI Vision 2021

    We evaluate alarms that are not configured to NaN so that we can properly display alarm limits to the user for only the limits that are used.

    We upgraded to Pi Vision 2021 to correct an issue we found during one of our support cases for slow call-up performances when minimum/maximum limit traits were used. While the performance has been significantly improved to open the gauge element, the multi-state evaluation shows as "Bad Data" due to multistate limits attributes that evaluate to "NaN". In the previous version of Vision, "NaN" attributes were ignored and the color animation would display properly.

  13. URL parameter to configure trend scale range

    Using URL parameters I am aware of being able to select either single or multiple scales for ad-hoc trends.
    I would like to be able to specify the zero and span of the ad-hoc trend via URL parameters. This would standardize all ad-hoc trends shared between our PI Vision Users without needing to update the database settings for our data items or manually adjust each ad-hoc trend.

  14. Make a Group of Costume Symbols or personal Symbols

    Hi
    When you have many users, it would bee nice to have an \ext\ area where you did not make trouble for other users.
    This possibility could open this good Custome Symbols for more people :)
    Regards
    Ulf

  15. Access to PI Vision Display events?

    Symbols have their own initialization function (init()) that allows me to run script when a symbol is loaded on a display.

    I am wondering if I can accessa similar onLoad() or Init() an a PI Vision display.

  16. 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?

  17. Change default symbol to "Value". It's currently "Trend" that is default now.

    Or maybe it's possible to change the which symbol that comes first when dragging a tag out in a display?

  18. Allow end users to filter Collection symbols on standard PI Vision displays they do not own.

    Displays with collections may have standardized filtering applied and it would be useful to allow other users to modify the criteria.

  19. Filter asset collections by existence of active event frames

    Add symbol collection search criteria to filter assets by the existence of related event frames active over the time range of the display (HasEvents?)

    Allow the acknowledgement state of those events to serve as an additional filter (HasUnacknowledgedEvents?)

    Integration would then be seamless between symbol collections and event tables, where events may be acknowledged from within PI Vision directly.

  20. Couple/decouple a symbol's data reference with its multistate reference

    Provide a multistate toggle to synchronize a symbol's data reference with the multistate reference. When changes are made to the symbol's data item (e.g. display reuse) the multistate will reflect that change too.
