  2. Ability to disable Calculations feature

    In some situations, PI Vision administrators may wish to globally disable the Calculations feature, or selectively limit who may use it.


    • Backwards compatibility with PI ProcessBook Data Sets is not needed

    • Policy requires exclusive use of Asset Analytics

    • Concerns of increased load on the PI Server due to lack of restrictions on Calculation creation

    • Etc.

    PI Vision should offer the ability to limit the use of Calculations throughout the system, or to only a select group of trusted users.

  3. On Trend symbols, have the option to specify database limits from AF or from the PI Data Archive

    Trend symbols can be configured with Scale Range using Database Limits.
    Have the option to specify database limits from AF or from the PI Data Archive

    A Trend for a pi point attribute has AF Limits based on formula, analytics or pi point.
    If the trend time context is in the future, but the limit attributes do not have future data, then the trend will use the PI Point's Zero and Span tag attributes from the Data Archive.
    If the Database Limits are set for AF, then the last limit attribute value should always be used for the y-axis scale

  4. Make the results of the PI Vision Calculations reusable

    Example:
    Calc1 = a * b
    Calc2 = Calc1 + c

  5. Grid clearance settings

    PI Vision 2020 Grid display settings is very helpful. Please prepare option to define the grid clearance by user. Some display panel of PLC have this functionality so want to define the grid clearance by myself also in PI Vision.

  6. Display time difference between trend cursors

    Want to know the time difference between trend cursors. Some display panel of PLC have this functionality so want to display the time span also in PI Vision.

  7. XY Plot: support to add attributes in time range

    By adding the ability to accept an attribute in the time range settings in the XY Plot object, the screen could be updated faster than with the fixed time range.
    Points with a value of "No data" would also be avoided, when the fixed time range is greater than the one you want to plot.

  8. Zoom in on a trend under 1 second

    The trend zoom is good functionality to specify time range to show but we cannot select under one second, it means the maximum time range for a trend is 1 sec. Please enhance this zoom functionality to point under 1 second.

  9. Format data point on existing gauge in Vision Display

    It would be nice if you were able to keep a Pi Vision board and change the pi value that is associated with a given visual. For example, I'd like to keep a stack of Horizontal Gauges and just change which pi value they are showing. Instead I have to navigate to the correct tag, and pull in a new item, and configure it as a Gauge. It makes formatting boards a nightmare unless you use all of the default sizes.

  10. Include Target attribute limit in Multistates in PI Vision

    Currently only the target attribute limit is not included when pulling attribute limits from AF limits. It would be nice for it to be included so that I can configure multistate colors based on whether or not the value is above or below the target. This would make Multistating more consistent with the Target indicator avaliable on Value and Table symbols.

  11. Support AF SDK Bulk calls for custom data reference

    As a custom data reference developer, I would like my bulk AF SDK call implementation to be supported in PI Vision as this should improve the custom data reference performance when multiple custom data reference attributes are in the same display.

  12. Custom Symbols using PIWebAPI in PI Vision

    Dear OSIsoft Support Team,

    We are currently developing with WebAPI for some custom symbols in PI Vision.

    We know that currently PI Vision 2020 no longer requires PIWebAPI and we would like to know if the PIWebAPI is going to be deprecated in the future or if it's a tool that is in OSIsoft roadmap for the future

  13. Rearrange PI Vision Folders

    Currently, you cannot rearrange PI Vision Folders. Adding the ability to drag and drop folders to restructure the hierarchy would be much more efficient than having to create a new structure and then move all displays into new folders.

  14. Click and Drag to Pan the PI Vision main application window

    For large dashboards, users often want to zoom into particular sections and then have the ability to easily pan up/down/left/right. Request is for the ability to click/drag to "grab" the display to pan in any direction (similar to what was available in Processbook, or Adobe PDF files).

    You can currently go up/down with the mouse wheel. Perhaps if you just enable the keyboard arrows to do panning?

  15. Add in the display report the number of ad-hoc calculations found per display

    We need to track which PI Vision displays are using ad-hoc calculations so we can monitor how they are impacting the PI Data Archive.

    Best would be to limit this usage (https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/320517-pi-vision/suggestions/42635995-ability-to-disable-calculations-feature) but using the report feature could also be a viable solution and enable us to really go to the 2020 version and further releases.

    Now we stay on 2019 versions just because we cannot control the ad-hoc calculation usage by end-users.

  16. PI trends precision to be dynamic with the timeframe

    When displaying a year of data from a PI point that logs data every 5 seconds, PI Visions reads all 6 million points and displays them even if it's not useful to have that precision considering that on a year trend, we won't see much of the seconds changes.
    PI Vision should retrieve the PI tags in a "smart" way depending on the timeframe to be able to be more responsive and much faster! This will allow us to display 10 pi tags in the same trend over 2 years without the performance issues we have today.
    Thanks

  17. Overlay event frames in a single display (like PI Batchview)

    The ability to overlay batches within Processbook using PI Batchview is critical to our continued focus on process improvement. Having something similar within PI Vision for event frames would allow us to transition from PI Batch to Event frames. With the phasing out of Processbook in the next couple of years replicating this type of view capability is essential for our site.

  19. Change "This display is not available" message to be more descriptive

    The message "This display is not available" when user does not have access to display can be confused and does not entirely describe that access was not granted.
    The error message should be changed.

  20. font size of trend cursor
