  1. More control over pop up and ad hoc background color

    Currently the background for ad hoc and pop up trends is controlled by the background color of the display and the background color of trends on the display. It would be nice to have more control over this setting.

    For this particular use case, it would be helpful to be able to control the ad hoc background color globally. An idea would be to have this formatting option in the "Format Display" window that currently allows you to control the display background color.

    I can also see a use case for controlling this on a display by display basis. Perhaps…

  2. Show a dotted line indicating a common screen resolution when in edit mode

    Just like the dotted page break lines in Excel, it would be great to see some guides noting a common screen resolution to make it easy to create consistent screens across the site. Ideally this would toggle on and off and have one size for PC/tablet and another size for mobile (likely lower priority for many).

  3. Allow custom menu/navigation bars

    All the Pi Vision screens I have seen seem to include a custom menu bar that the user creates for internal navigation that is manually copied and pasted to each screen every time there are updates to the structure. Instead, there should be the ability to create a custom menu bar, just like a header on a document so changes automatically propagate from the template outwards. This has been lumped into other ideas, but I feel it could reduce scope as a stand-alone feature.

  6. Conditional formatting

    Please give us 'on the fly' multi state options. F.e. when working with multiple assets , being able to enter a simple line of logic coding to be able to color fill objects accordingly (like how it is done in Excel If-Then and conditional formatting).

  7. XY Plot: ability to change the X-axis labels text direction to vertical

    The x-axis scale values of XY-plots can look cluttered because they are horizontal (Parallel with the scale). There should be a check-box that allows you to rotate these scale values to be perpendicular to the x-axis to improve visibility. Attached is an image of this feature in Excel.

  8. Dynamically change font size to fit the area.

    Dynamically changing the font size to fit the string within the defined area or object. Text wraping could also help for the same task.
    Now the areas must be prepared for the worst case scenario - the longest string. But it looks strange while most of the time much shorter text is presented..

  9. Vertical Gauges: Fix width of bar, independently of the displayed digits of the scale

    Currently the width of the vertical gauge is taken up by the bar + the scale.

    This has the effect that the width of the bar is dependent on the maximum number of digits of the scale. This creates problems when copying & pasting a gauge or using a vertical gauge in a collection if different values with different number of digits are displayed.

    It would be better if the width of the bar would be fixed when copied or used in a collection, and the scales would be added outside of that.

  11. Allow DateTime columns to be sorted in chronological order

    Currently in the Table and Asset Comparison Table symbol, data in columns can be sorted in numerical or alphabetical order.

    For columns with timestamp format (e.g. DD/MM/YYYY), allow sorting of time stamps by the DateTime properly.

  17. Remove x-axis scale values from XY Plot

    When we make an XY Plot small, the scaling for the x-axis overlays on top of the trend. We'd like a way to make the values of the scale invisible.

  19. Trend: colorize area below tag-line

    I have a tag (0/1) and want to colorize the area below the tag to increase the visibility of the status... (Optimum would be a changeable transparency to avoid the hiding of other tags/attributes)... is this possible?

  20. Drop down for collections

    Have an option for collections to appear as a drop down list in the display. This would be beneficial for context switching in displays, so that the user could then select from a drop down on the display which element to view. Instead of having to scroll through a collection and double click the element.
