  1. Disable Build/Edit mode for displays when user doesn't have write access

    It can be somewhat odd and a little confusing for operators utilizing a pre-made display that they only have read access where they can still 'edit' the display. It would be helpful if there was a way to lock a display down where the only manipulation is manipulating the time ranges and going to full screen trends.

  2. PI Coresight import folder management should also be able to add folder from SharePoint site as this will be a great help to everyone

    As everything is getting maintained at cloud/SharePoint sites/One drive, I would say we should have a function where we can add ProcessBook files from these cloud database to PI Coresight display easily with using import folder management.

  4. Add Copy & Paste options to right-click menu

    As a PI Vision display designer, I expect to be able to right-click on a display symbol and select 'Copy'. Once I have an item on my clipboard, I also expect to be able to right-click on empty space on a display and select 'Paste'.

  5. Showing commas in numbers with display digits = 0.

    When display digits are set to 0, commas do not appear in numbers in PI Vision. There should be an option for those commas to appear.

  6. Auto reset display to "Now"

    It is useful to be able to scroll back in time on each Coresight display. However, operators sometimes forget to reset the display to "Now" and are looking at a good situation, while the current situation is bad.

    A automatic reset of the display to "Now" after a specific period of inactivity would prevent this from happening.

  8. Include data point description on trend

    I am not happy with the new Coresite. This is basically like Processbook - why offer two nearly identical UI's? I don't mind that you can't hover over the trend to see values anymore, but I want the box that displays the values to also include the data point it is indicating. On a busy trend, the colors start to look the same.

    I want more options for how to display the data like the old Coresite - min, max, etc.

    I can't even drag a data point from the search box on the left on to an existing trend,…

  9. Add support for HTTP/2

    PI Vision currently uses only HTTP/1.1. Please add support for HTTP/2 so that PI Vision will load faster. This is especially important for mobile devices, which are generally already slower compared to desktop or laptop computers.

  10. Tooltips: Show tag attributes

    As a user I would like to be able to see the commonly used tag attributes when I hover over a tag in a value, trend or other symbol so that I can effectively interpret and act on the data.

    Some important attributes for end users include:
    - Description
    - Engineering units
    - Zero and span
    - Point source
    - Instrumenttag

  11. Screen Ordering

    It would be ideal if the order of the screens could be configurable and static. Having the order change constantly based on last/recently viewed is not user-friendly.

  12. Sort/Remove Bad Values in PI Vision

    I need the ability to filter out Bad Values and also the ability to sort them. At Devon Energy we have very large Asset Framework databases for Production and there are scenarios where we do not have uniformity across all equipment, so we may get a 'No Data', 'Calc Failed', 'Bad' or 'Scan Off' sometimes in hundreds of rows of PI Vision and we need the ability to see the operational exceptions and remove these from view - or sort them to the top/bottom.

  13. Ability to view tag configuration from PI Vision

    Often users question compression settings while looking at data in ProcessBook. The user then has the ability to view the detailed tag configuration so they can determine if compression optimization is required.

    This would be a useful function in PI Vision.

  14. Use Attributes as Timestamps in PI-Vision

    Hi,

    Currently I'm working on a display which should always show the last event of a machine.
    I know there are event frames, but I think it would be nice if there was a way to use attributes as the start time and end time of a display's time span.

    In this way, it would be possible to change the timestamps of the display dynamically and you would only see the relevant period.

  15. visibility base on attribute properties or condition

    visibility base on attribute.
    For example, on one of the unit, there is an extra temperature meter. On all the other unit, the attribute is hidden or exclude on the AF template. Can pi vision show or hide a attribute base on some condition?

  16. Create folders by dragging a display on top of another display

    Add the ability to create folders by dragging and dropping displays on top of one another. Think of creating folders in iOS. R/O access should be set from the root folder.

  18. Layers

    "Layers". It would be great if attributes could be groupped and visualized in layers. The Vision Dashboards would allow to activate or deactivate the layers. An example of two layers could be process measurements and calculated values. With the layers concept, it would be possible to visualize both types of attributes together or only one of them at a time. This would enhance the visualization experience.

  20. Navigation Links Back Feature

    Hyperlinks should have an option to go back (to the last screen that navigated to this screen).
