  1. Statistics between cursors

    When adding multiple cursors to a trend, have a way to show the statistics (min/max/avg/duration) between the two cursors.

  2. Trend: Allow custom titles

    Allow specifying titles for trend symbols, similar to how ProcessBook allows specifying a plot name.

  3. Compare data over different time ranges on the same trend

    As a process engineer, I need to be able to overlay traces on the same trend with data from different time ranges so that I can compare different point in time. This may be the same data item over different time ranges or multiple different data items over different time ranges.

  4. 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.

  5. Set Permissions for Root folder "Home"

    As already implemented for subfolders, we would like to set permissions also on root folder "Home".

    Use Case: We would like to make sure that only creation of new displays in subfolders is possible and not in home folder.

  6. Automatically adding Start Time and End Time to the PI Vision URL

    Allow adding the timestamp automatically into the PI Vision link. The scenario is if you open any PI vision page and zoom into the timeframe which you required then the timestamp range which zoomed in should be automatically added up in the PI Vision link instead of adding the start time and end time parameter in the PI Vision URL.
    This will help the process engineers to identify the issue at a particular point of time and send that link directly to others without any manual intervention.

  7. Convert ProcessBook display to PI Vision display

    Can we have a tool to convert ProcessBook display to native PI Vision display? So we can leverage the full features of PI Vision displays,.

    A migration tool to migrate PI ProcessBook displays to native PI Vision displays is currently in development for the upcoming release of PI Vision 2019. This will also include functionality to analyze your ProcessBook displays ahead of the migration to determine which displays are using features like VBA that will not be supported in PI Vision.

  8. Faster Login Experience on Mobile Devices

    Be able to login to the app on a mobile device quickly (in less than 5 seconds) SO THAT it’s easier to get access to the displays he needs to view quickly and on the go.  

    Ideally, not having to type in a password every time by leveraging your mobile device's native authentication mechanisms (ex: TouchID/FaceID on Apple iOS) and/or persisting credentials on the mobile device and protecting with a pin number like other banking mobile apps do.   Or another approach ...

  9. Allow sharing a display with edit permission

    As a display creator, I want to give other users edit permission on the display so we can collaborate in creating the display and so that other users from my team can make needed changes when I'm not available.

  10. EF Template Attributes Displayed in Event Table Columns

    Allow for display of EF Template specific attributes on an Events Table when a specific template is selected. Much like how specific attribute data can be pulled through DataLink, but only when a specific template is selected in the Explore criteria.

  11. Drag to manipulate trend scale values

    As a process engineer, I should be able to manipulate trend scales by dragging the top or bottom of the y axis so that I can align curves and similar patterns of data for comparison.

  12. View users connected to PI Vision

    PI Vision administrators should be able to see who is actively connected to PI Vision, similar to the way Network Manager Statistics in SMT shows all active connections to the PI Data Archive.

  13. Trend: Ability to multistate trace pen color

    As a PI Vision user, I want to be able to configure a trend's trace color to be conditional based on the trace value. Each section of the trace should be colored appropriately based on its value at that time. See attached image for example.

  14. Events table: search for event frames by asset root path (including all descendants)

    It would be useful to be able to configure the events table symbol in PI Vision to search for all event frames that reference elements below a certain root. This would allow you to see all EFs related to a certain branch of your AF hierarchy very quickly.

  15. Make XY-Plot available for collections

    Most symbols can be dynamically organized into collections, which is very handy for comparing assets of different sites, where the number of assets vary.
    The XY-Plot does not support this function at the moment.

  16. Export event frame data to CSV from event details and comparison displays

    From the event details or event comparison displays in PI Vision, it would be useful to export event frame data (including attributes and values) to CSV/XML.

    I think autosaving the displays would be a good idea to add.

  18. Navigate to parent of selected element

    In a collection you can use 'Set asset context' to open a new display and show data regarding the selected child element.
    But when you want to use a link\button to navigate back to the previous display you cannot use this functionality. Because it will use in the current (the child) element instead of the parent. When you don't use 'Set asset context' it will open the correct display, but the selected element will be the one used when the display is last saved.

    Notes:
    - The option to open displays in a new tab of the browser is not…

  20. Event Frame Comparison Hide Multiple Event Frames

    Currently in the event frame comparison page, you can hide event frames from trends by right-clicking on the event frame and selecting the hide option.

    Provide the ability to hide multiple event frames in one go instead of one at a time.
