  1. Integrate PI Manual Logger into PI Vision

    PI Manual Logger is a product in need of a major upgrade. The web interface is a step in the right direction. Integration into Vision would be a big plus and give very good convergence between the two technologies.

    Allowing users to update a data item’s current value is planned for a future release. It is NOT in the scope of PI Vision 2019.

  3. Annotation/Comment on Data Values

    Be able to enter and visualize user comments made on a attribute/tag data stream.

  4. PI Manual Logger Web should honor the Conditional Manual Data Entry (CMDE) settings in the tour definitions

    CMDE provides a cleaner method of skipping tags, as it does not rely on the user to manually skip data entry for the correct tags during each tour.

  5. Tour Scheduling for PI Manual Logger

    In PI Manual Logger PC, you can set tours to run on a schedule.  This allows, you to set the tour run time as opposed to having the application round the tour run to the nearest hour.

    In PI Manual Logger Web, the tour scheduling configuration is not respected.  Add functionality for Tour Runs in PI Manual Logger Web follow periodic tour scheduling.

  6. PI Manual Logger should support picture uploading together with data entry.

    PI Manual Logger should support picture uploading such that when the user found something physically abnormal during the tour run, they can quickly take photo and save it for later reference.

    PI Vision's comment does accept picture uploading, so it should be possible for PI Manual Logger too.

  8. Notification/Event Acknowledgement: Support 21 CFR Part 11 Electronic Signatures

    Include functionality to support the pharmaceutical industry electronic record and electronic signature requirements (21 CFR Part 11) when acknowledging and event or notification. This would require the forcing of the Username / Password of the user and potentially some text describing the meaning of the signature.

  9. PI ML Web inactive tags

    If an instrument is temporarily inactive then values dont need to be included with active tags for reporting. It should be possible to grey out/ shut off individual tags on PI ML Webpage, while keeping them visible in tours.

    Currently this can be done with PIML PC with conditional data entry statements which are not supported in Web.

  10. Support manual data entry of future tag data in real time

    Manual data entry users want to write forecast data (e.g. 1 month into the future for tags belonging for many sites/assets) without the data being queued for sending.

  11. Support for Integrated Windows Security In PI Manual Logger PC

    Currently, only PIML Web syncs the user account to the active directory. All PIML applications (PC and mobile) should have the ability to have users login using Integrated Windows Security as opposed to what is setup initially from PIML PC.

  12. PIML Web: New Tour Run button

    In PIML Web, when I select a Tour from the Tour List, the page seems to soft refresh and load the tour page again and brings the page to the top. I then have to scroll back down to the bottom to select New Tour Run.

    It would be helpful to either move the New Tour Run button to the top of the page or have it scroll with you. This is a large inconvenience to my operators using iPads with large tour lists where they experience below freezing temperatures in the field and any improvement to efficiency would be…

  13. PI Manual Logger

    Currently, while using Manual logger on iPads, alphabet keyboard comes up while entering values and users have to toggle to number keypad each time while moving over from one tag to another to enter values. OSIsoft provided a workaround for this by modifying vb script files on Manual logger server. However, this workaround doesn't work for decimals and negative values as the workaround restricts number range from [0-9]. We would like to see this taken care of in future releases. We would like to see respective keyboard coming up as per the data type. Number keyboard for analog tags and…

  14. Improve Onscreen Keyboard Select for PI Manual Logger Web

    Currently the onscreen keyboard selection is defaulted to the alphabet keyboard. PI ML Web should be able to look at a tag and determine what kind of keyboard should be displayed. For example, if we are entering data for a numeric tag (e.g. int32), present a numeric keypad.

  16. Increase logging for PIML Windows Service failures

    When the PIML Windows Service is sending queued data to the Data Archive, it will fail if it encounters an "illegal" value.  However, the error logged only states what the illegal value was, but no identifying information about the tag or tour to assist with resolving the issue.  It would be helpful for troubleshooting if more diagnostic information was included with the error.

  17. Create Reporting Functionality on PIML Web

    Many users like auditing tour runs and verifying tour completions to ensure compliance to operational standards and procedures. 

    Currently, users must use Excel to build their own reports which queries the SQL Backend directly.

    Having this functionality in PIML Web will allow better user experience and complies with OSIsoft best practices with regards to the SQL Backend.

  18. PI Manual Logger Web-Notify when another user in the group is entering data

    Our users had mentioned they would like to be notified when other users are entering data for the same tour so they would not have to enter the data and they would also like to see the data that they entered on the Web.

  19. Ability for tour to have multiple tiers of approval

    As an administrator, I would like for PI ML to have the ability to create a multi-tier approval workflow so that manually entered data needs to be approved by one or more levels up the hierarchy before data is stored in the data archive?

  20. PI Manual Logger’s Conditional Manual Data Entry feature should allow conditions based on tags that are not part of the tour

    Tags within the tour may require data entry based on the value of status tags for which data is never entered manually.

    Use Case: Say there is an asset called Pump1 that has many related tags (e.g. Pump1.FlowRate, Pump1.Pressue, Pump1.PowerConsumption, etc.) which are members of a tag group within a PIML tour. If the pump also has an associated digital tag called Pump1.Running that can be either TRUE or FALSE, it would only make sense to enter data for that tag group if the value of Pump1.Running is TRUE. Otherwise, the tag group should be skipped. In this case, you…
