  1. Trend: Time Range: Duration and Offset - Add option to support start time

    Currently the Trend object's Time Range has a Duration and Offset option which will take the End Time of the display and a specified duration for the trend's timerange. We need to have the ability to do the same based on the Start Time and a duration. Can you please add a new Time Range option "Duration and Offset from Start"?

    The use case for this is that we are comparing batch phases against a golden batch's phase, but the phase duration can and do differ. Having an option to have the trend start at a selected batch phase's start…

  2. Allow pixel parameter management for PI Vision Mobile Devices

    As a PI System Admin, I would like to have the pixel parameters configurable for PI Vision Mobile device redirection. Currently, some of my mobile devices will not automatically redirect to the mobile view.

  3. XY Graphs - Hard Coded Limit of 10000 Events

    If in the XY graph there are traces with a point every minute and a user selects the standard interval "1W", nothing is shown.

    There’s an explanation already present in the knowledge base in the last paragraph of the link: https://customers.osisoft.com/s/knowledgearticle?knowledgeArticleUrl=Errortoomanypointsindataset : “Starting in PI Vision 2019 XY plots have a hard coded limit of 10,000 events "

    The combination of a point every minute and “1W” requires 10080 events per track (the number of minutes in a week), so over the limit of 80 events.

    Rather unpleasant that it happens on the value "1W" which is one of those…

  4. Data line graphs points color changes for different value ranges

    For graphed data in PI Vision, I would like to be able to use limits on the data (either direct to the point definition or local to the PI Vision page) to either have the data plot line change color on the display as it passes from normal to hi to hi-hi to OOT. (or the background to change so if you cross HI, the background is now yellow at this point moving up).

    This would be similar to Multi-State options which do not, today, exist for graphs.

    I use dozens of plots in a column with from 1 to…

  5. Add option to specify Calculation Basis in PI Vision Calculations

    Add a configurable option for Calculations in PI Vision to specify a Calculation Basis of Continuous or Discrete when performing summary calculations.

    Due to a limitation on the PI Data Archive, PI Vision summary calculations currently can treat results as Continuous even if the underlying calculation expression uses only Discrete (Stepped) PI points. Adding this option will allow users to choose how the calculation should be handled and clear up confusion about calculation results.

  6. Highlight trend when hovering over the tag name

    When a user selects the tag name in a trend symbol, the trend is highlighted. User would like the trend to be highlighted when hovering over the tag name without selecting it.

  7. PI Vision - Tag search results should show both name and description

    As a user creating PI Vision displays, I would like to see the tag descriptions as part of search results so that I can quickly and easily spot the right tag I am looking for.

    In the current version of PI Vision I have to hoover the tag search results to see the tag description which is time-consuming.

  8. XY Plot: Asset Description option for Labels

    In [ Configure XY Plot > Format > Legend ] there are 3 available options:
    - Data Source Name
    - Asset Name Only
    - Use Custom Label

    Please add "Asset Description" as a futher option.

    I have a PI AF hierarchy like the following very simplified one:

    Reference Curves
    Equipment A
    Curve1 "Status 0%"
    Curve2 "Status 10%"
    Curve3 "Status 20%"
    Equipment B
    Curve1 "Status 0%"
    Curve2 "Status 5%"
    Curve3 "Status 10%"
    ....
    Equipment X
    Curve1 "Status 0%"
    Curve2 "Status 15%"
    Curve3 "Curve3 25%"

    In a XY Plot I can change the Equipment via the Select Asset menù, changing coherently the…

  10. Create Multi-State limits based on tags.

    On Multi-state limits, we could insert tags/attributes instead a static value. For example, a tank level:
    TAG Tank Level: 333-001-233.PV
    Limit Tag for 90%: TanksChemicals.LIM.HH
    Limit Tag for 80%: TanksChemicals.LIM.HL
    Limit Tag for 30%: TanksChemicals.LIM.LH
    Limit Tag for 15%: TanksChemicals.LIM.LL

    And if I have 30 tanks with the same limits on multi-state, I can change the LL limit from 15% to 10% for every one once.

  12. Display Slope/Derivative of PI Vision Trend

    Users can easily make a plot of a process value as a function of time. It may be useful to know how that process value changes with time, so users would benefit from having an easy way to analyze the slope (derivative) of a process value as a function of time.

  13. PI Vision - Table - Dynamic Name column

    For tables the name column should have the same dynamic feature as charts, to only display attribute name if only one element is added to the table. Today I avoid using tables for single element displays due to the current fixed Element|Attribute setup.

  14. Find and replace/update tag names using PI Vision Display Utility

    The PI Vision Display Utility should be able to find and replace PI Points and AF Attributes by name.

    A situation where this could be necessary is as follows:
    1. A PI Vision display was built for using PI Points from a certain data source
    2. A new data source, possibly a new instrument, is added to read the same process data. The old data source is taken offline.
    3. To keep data separate between different instruments, new PI Points are created for the new data source. New AF Attributes referencing the new PI Points would also be created for…

  15. PI Vision display search should return results from subfolders

    With the PI Vision display search bar, the filter will only search among displays that can already be seen in as display thumbnails.

    Searching "within a selected folder" should also include results from any child folders as these are a sub-sets of the parent folder.

    The current behavior where you must already be looking at a display thumbnail to be able to find it is un-intuitive and makes folders a less useful organizing feature

    User Guide:
    Create folders
    https://docs.osisoft.com/bundle/pi-vision/page/create-folders.html
    Search for an existing display
    https://docs.osisoft.com/bundle/pi-vision/page/search-for-an-existing-display.html

  16. Move Fit-All option to checkbox on Format Display

    There is no way to determine if fit all option is on or off, if a display is edited, fit all is reset and most times the display is saved again without fit all. (and you cant just select fit all and resave)

    Move the fit all option to the display format screen as a checkbox and add a fit width check box option also.

    (I hope you will reconsider this idea, since it has been rejected before, it would save my users lots of time and confusion)

  17. Provide more granular control of ad hoc calculations in PI Vision

    Administrators need to control who is allowed to create ad hoc (display level) calculations in PI Vision to prevent expensive queries from untrained users.

  18. Display Current Value on Hover

    When searching for a tag, hovering over the tag will currently display the description. It would be helpful to also show the most recent value for the tag, along with the time stamp.

  19. Allow all limit attributes to be added as columns in Tables

    Currently only the Target limit attribute is able to be added as a column in Table symbols. It would be nice to be able to add the other limit attributes (e.g. HiHi, LoLo, etc) to be added as columns too.

  20. Disable display export

    Starting with 2016 R2 data from displays can be exported to a file. It could be useful to be able to toggle this functionality so that an administrator could configure whether display data could be exported to file.
