  1. Add descriptions to trends

    Be able to view the tag/attribute descriptions on the bottom of the trend the same way that you are able to in ProcessBook. For those of us with large DB, it is very important to have this functionality.

  2. Trend Cursor: show values while dragging

    As a process engineer, while dragging a trend cursor I'd like to see the process values. Currently, I can only see the value once I drop the cursor, I need to see the values WHILE dragging the cursor so that I can quickly identify problems in my process.

    This feature was available in previous version of Coresight (2014 and 2015) and in ProcessBook.

  3. Display hand when hovering over objects with Navigation Links

    When hovering with the mouse over a display object that has a Navigation Link attached to it, the mouse cursor should change to a hand when not in edit mode and it should navigate on single-click instead of having to double-click.

    Having the mouse cursor change to a hand to indicate when a symbol is configured with a navigation link is in development for the PI Vision 2019 release. To make this behavior more intuitive for users, single-clicking the symbol will trigger the navigation instead of double-click. Trends will be an exception to this, single-clicking a trend will continue to drop a cursor and double-click will be required for navigation links.

  4. Edit Trace Name in Trend Legend or be able to add a description

    Edit the trace name or add a description in the legend of a Coresight trend in order to:

    1) Make clear the description of the Attribute in the trend
    2) Use an abbreviation for the attribute description in the trend legend
    3) Use a different language in the legend while respecting the attribute name (for example, an attribute name is written in English in PI System Explorer but we would like to see Italian in the Coresight trend)

  5. Show descriptions in tooltip

    In PI CoreSight 2014, when working with a raw Tag or attribute, one could hover over the tag and the description would appear in the tooltip. I loved that functionality. However, in the upgrade, this functionality is lost.

    Please reinstate it for the next patch or upgrade.

  6. Trending

    Trending Must Haves:

    I recently installed PI Vision here and I am getting feedback about the trending capabilities, or the lack there of. Please fix the following in the trends

    1. The ability to click on values on a page and create an Ad-Hoc Trend. This is another major need.

    2. Need to add descriptors to trends

    3. MUST BE ABLE to un-zoom in a trend and keep your current place in time. For example if I have a 24 hour trend and I scroll back 10 days and then zoom in, when I un-zoom I still want to be…

  7. We would like to be able to have a sound play as part of a multistate

    We would like to be able to have a sound play as part of a multistate. Ex: on an upper limit we may want it to play an alarm sound.

  8. Busy Indicator

    It would be useful to have an indication that the data is still being loaded. Currently when you add an attribute to the display, change the time range of a display, execute a dynamic search, etc you don't get an indication that something is happening. Some of our operations are quite far away with limited bandwidth.

  9. Unit of Measure (UOM) setting per user

    As a PI Coresight user I want to be able to switch the units of measure on my displays between Metric and Imperial so I can see data in units I expect.

  10. Email errors to administrator

    Provide a way to quickly email an administrator an error message seen on a display. Message should include the context of the issue (corresponding display, symbol, data item, etc).

  11. Folder-related URL in PI Vision

    It would be great if it were possible to set up a URL that takes the user directly to a folder within Vision.

    For example something like https://.../PIVision/Site1/ would show only the Displays of the folder Site1

  12. Show ToolTip Statistics in PI Vision

    As a PI user, I would like to see the same ToolTip statistics for symbols as we are used to see at PI ProcessBook (min, max, avg, etc). It is automatic when any user sees a value and wants to check further information on an attribute with PI Point Data Reference.

  13. Trend Zoom - Undo

    I need the ability to undo, revert time ranges or go back a step or steps when zooming in on data in a trend. Currently the only way to do this that I'm aware of is to start from scratch with your default time range at the bottom.

    When in full screen mode (pop-up) for a trend the only option you have is to go back and from there you have to start from scratch again.

    Being able to undo/revert time ranges would definitely increase the usability and make analyzing data more efficient.

  15. Support AF UOM Groups

    For international companies, it would be good having the possibility to use the new AF UOM Groups in PI Vision, so that each user could see data with the UOMs he is more comfortable with.
    It would be even better if these would be selected automatically depending on the user region (though it should be possible overriding this setting).

  16. internet explorer vs Chrome

    I realize that this very well may be out of OSIsoft's control. However the very noticeable performance difference between Internet Explorer and Chrome on displays, particularly ones utilizing many objects is problematic. Internet Explorer is still such a heavily used browser within the organization. Its confusing for many since we would recommend Chrome usage, but that results in users having to juggle applications requiring IE in the organization and Chrome.

  17. Align items with first clicked

    Modify the object alignment so the objects all align (top middle bottom...) with the first object selected. This way the first object does not move, everything else aligns to it.

  18. Change text alignment in a Table symbol

    Currently, text alignment is hard-coded in the Table symbol. I would like to be able to configure text alignment (right, left, center) for each column within a Table.

  20. Coresight 2015R2 Trend Behavior

    Coresight 2016 Trends are missing functionality from Coresight 2015R2. Namely:

    1) Have the Tracer follow the mouse as opposed to having to drag the trace around.

    2) Have the Tracer constantly update as the mouse moves as opposed to having it update after the mouse button is released.

    3) Have a button (x in 2015R2) to hide traces as opposed to right-clicking the attribute in the legend to hide

    4) Have the ability to hide traces in Kiosk mode
