  1. Trend: Allow custom titles

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

  4. Allow sharing access to data when sharing a display

    When a user shares a display, give the option to allow them to share the data contained in the display (PI tags/AF elements and attributes) with the AF identities that the display is shared with.

  6. Allow users to request access to data

    If a user doesn't have access to view the data associated with data items (tags/attributes) on a display, provide a way for them to be able to request access to the data.

  8. Prevent users from opening display if they don't have access to data

    If a user does not have access to any of the data items (tags/attributes) on a display, they should not be able to open that display.

  9. Add description to search results

    Show more information in the search results when searching PI Data Archive.

    Just showing the Tag Name is not helpful on sites with large volumes of complexly named tags.

    The ability to specify which attributes to display in search results would be ideal, so you can see description or Point Source or ExDesc in the results.

  10. PI Vision Displays Management Process

    Hi,
    We have noticed as PI Vision gets adopted, organization of displays and content is becoming more and more cumbersome.
    It has become obvious that PI Vision is easy enough for any average person to design good quality displays that could be considered as part of the company's knowledge retention strategy.
    Therefore, similar to the concept of crowed sourcing, our vision is to "crowed design" in which James Dryden described it best in a reply Group Ownership Of A Display - PI Vision 2017 .
    I can envision a system in which users save personal copies of "published" shared displays…

  11. Add element name and description to display

    We should be able to add element's name and description to symbols, without the need to create another attribute for that. So we could easily have element relative titles and labels...

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Allow multistating based on conditions from multiple data items

    As a PI Vision user, I would like to add multistates to my display's symbols that depend on conditions of multiple data items. For example, when the pump status tag has a value of "Active" and the pump flowrate tag has a value less than 10, turn the value symbol red.

  16. The PI Vision Admin site PI Vision Database configuration page UI should be altered to avoid misleading the user.

    When on the PI Vision Admin site's Configuration > PI Vision Database page, the user is presented with either a green check-mark representing a successful connection to the SQL Server and Database by the user, or a red x representing no connection. In order for the connection to work from a client machine, Kerberos delegation should be set up between the PI Vision Admin site and the SQL Server.

    However, this can be misleading, if the user doesn't need access to the SQL Server, and their SQL Administrator configured the SQL database ahead of time with a GO.bat script. When…

  17. Better handle incompatible data type event in PI Vision trend

    Scenario: Your company has a PI tag set up as string that primarily gets float values. It is a string because it sometimes contains messages explaining why a result was not obtained.

    The tag is set up as a double attribute in AF and plotted in Vision. This works fine unless a non-numeric value is encountered within the Time Range you are looking at. If this happens, the trend is blank and No Data is displayed.

    While PI annotations would have been a good use in this situation, it is difficult to go back and change this when you have…

  19. Sampled Data Symbol

    Please add a Pi Vision Symbol for Sampled Data (similar to Data Link in Excel) to show a row column timestamped historical data table for selected tags. This would be similar to the Trend, only in table format for the time period at the bottom of the screen at a given interval (15m, 1h, 1w, etc).

    This would help Pi Vision expand to be more of a basic reporting platform in addition to HMI trend and single value viewer.

  20. Have displays automatically inherit folder permissions

    As a PI Vision admin, I would like displays to automatically inherit the permissions of their parent folder so that permissions are set automatically when users save displays to the appropriate folder.

    Currently permissions for folders and displays are not tied together but they can be propagated manually using the 'Propagate permissions' checkbox in the Folder Settings dialog.
