  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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

  6. Ability to Click on Text Rather than ">" to see what is in a folder

    Any other program where I navigate in folders, I can click on the folder name to see the sub-folders inside. In PI Vision, the ">" symbol has to be clicked. I have had to remind people multiple times in site training to click the > and not the name. Is there any way to set it up where clicking the name and clicking the ">" have the same result?

  7. Trend Scale : minimum set to zero when derived template used

    We are using PI Vision to display dashboards for our dams around the state. Due to different level measurement systems used for the different types of dams, derived templates are used. Hence, ALL levels/level types can be placed on the one graph and only those that have data for that dam type are displayed. No problem.

    However, when viewing a dam level trend from the base template, the graph minimum always reverts to zero; as there's no derived template attribute to use max/min traits/limits for. If NOT using derived template levels in the trend graphic, then the max/min traits are…

  8. Have a fixed start time and a dynamic end time in displays

    I have set up several displays showing a process. I want to see the graph of different attributes showing a fixed start time and the end time should be actual time and updated all 5 seconds.
    At the moment it is:
    Start Time is based on the time interval i set.
    How i would like to have it:
    Start time is a fixed date and time. the interval that is shown will scale up automatically because the end time is set as *

  10. Ability to Change AF Elements shown on an Existing Display

    We have a display with 8 AF elements. We would love the ability to change the display to show a subset of those elements with the user being able to control this. Perhaps a click or right-click of an element takes it off the trend and then when necessary this can be added back.

  11. Option to store the (trends)displays to the users’ desktop which is currently limited to store in the PI VISION server

    There should be an option to store the (trends)displays to the users’ desktop. That will resolve the storage issue for the trends of the few hundred users in our refinery to store their trends/displays for their own usage. Common displays could be stored thru server storage
    It is a very essential feature and it is to be included ASAP.

  13. Add additional columns to the PI Vision Display Utility to provide additional display information

    Sometimes, when migrating displays using the PI Vision Display Utility, there are displays with the same name from the same user. It would be helpful to have additional display information to help determine which displays to migrate.

  18. 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.

  19. Display Scroll

    I often have very full display windows, leaving little room to add new trends. Why can't I scroll down like in Process Book to creak some space for the new trend?
