  1. Hide "Create Display" Button Option for Explorer

    e.g. AD Groups which should have only access on displays not on creating. At the moment all users have the ability to create displays allthough displays cant be saved.

  2. Check if source PI Data Archive/AF Server is a stored server reference in display utility

    When changing AF or PI Data Archive server names using PI Vision display utility, check if the source entries for the servers are stored server references for the displays. In case, I don't specify the correct source server name (FQDN vs hostname) or have misspelled or made a typo, it is clear that the Display Utility will not make changes to the displays.

  3. Improve display loading performance

    Large displays can take 30 seconds or longer to load. Load times are particularly slow in Internet Explorer. Displays needs to load faster.

  4. Allow DateTime columns to be sorted in chronological order

    Currently in the Table and Asset Comparison Table symbol, data in columns can be sorted in numerical or alphabetical order.

    For columns with timestamp format (e.g. DD/MM/YYYY), allow sorting of time stamps by the DateTime properly.

  5. Remove requirement for SQL setting 'disallow results from triggers' to be set to 0

    When 'disallow results from triggers option' SQL feature is enabled and set to 1 on the SQL serverwhere the PI Vision database is hosted, PI Vision displays cannot be saved resulting in error:

    "A trigger returned a resultset and the server option 'disallow results from triggers' is true"

    Existing versions of PI Vision do not support this feature to be enabled and must be set to 0 for a proper functioning of PI Vision saving displays capabilities.
    However, this SQL feature is reportedly recommend to be set to 1 by Microsoft and it is mandatory for some customers to have…

  6. PI Vision - "Internal Server Error"

    PI Vision "Internal Server Error" are not detailed enough to properly troubleshoot.
    As PI administrator, it would be great to have more granular and specific PI Vision "Internal Server Error" messages in order to get more insight as to what is going on.
    Our users have been experiencing intermittent "Internal Server Error", and we can not tell what the issue is either from the message log text neither when looking at the message logs level.
    If we have the ability to troubleshoot the root cause of the "Internal Server Error", we will be able to start looking at the problems…

  7. Display attribute traits on PI Vision tables

    It would be nice to display attribute traits such as maximum and minimum on PI Vision; it can only display targets

  8. PI Vision 12hr interval time range

    PI Vision default search time range, that are available (1h, 8h, 1d, 1w, 1mon) do not offer a 12 hour search option. As this is mining standard shift length, it would be very convenient and helpful to have the 12h time range option as default.

  9. Mobile view for displays

    As users of PI Vision on cell phones, we think it would be very
    necessary to be able to design the same PI Vision display for being use in a PC and in a mobile environment. Then, when changes are made in a display, they will be applied in both design versions (PC and Mobile). Just as an example, Power Bi uses a very similar approach.

  10. Hide trend scale range

    For digital tags or Enumeration AF attribute, do not want to see the scale or scale range, because these values is not relevant to my values.

  11. Overwrite a display in different folder

    In Pivision - if I use the 'Save As' function to save a display from Folder A to Folder B and that display name already exists in the destination folder - I should be given the option to overwrite the target display if I am the owner of both displays. I think having the warning message 'display already exists' is helpful, however, I should be able to proceed with the overwrite/save.

    If want to stage an update to a display in a limited access folder before copying the update to a public folder I am unable to do so -…

  12. Trend: Set lower or upper limit only for scale range

    Currently we can set the Y-Axis limits to be dependent on the plotted values or set both the upper and lower limit.

    I would like to be able to fix either the upper or lower limit, and have the other limit still be dependent on the plotted values.

  13. apply event time range to pi vision display to show time before and after event.

    We have events of short duration and often use the "apply time range" option from the events table or events search in Pi Vision. We then have to manually adjust the time frame in PI Vision to be able to see a wider time range and understand what happened before the event. It would be really useful to be able to have a configurable time frame that PI Vision uses to show x minutes before and x minutes after the event when using "apply time range".

    This functionality would also be useful on the event event details page.

  15. PI Vision Display Utility: Copy displays between PI Vision databases on the same machine

    The 2019 PI Vision Display Utility was changed so that displays from a PI Vision Server cannot be copied over to a different database on the same PI Vision Server. We keep a backup of the PI Vision SQL database on the same machine as PI Vision in case we need to restore a display from the database backup.

    To support this, we would like the ability to copy displays between different PI Vision databases on the same machine.

  17. Support AF Identities from Multiple Servers

    Currently, only 1 AF server is configured to provide identities for vision display security. Displays can show data from multiple AF servers, which could have different security mappings. It would be nice to be able to pull identities from multiple AF servers for display security that matches the AF security that already exists.

  20. Multistate: Provide a way to refresh digital state information

    Digital states used for multistates are currently stored with a display, so if they are modified PI Vision does not currently detect this change. PI Vision should provide a way to update multistates with the new modified digital states. This applies to enumeration sets in AF as well.
