  1. 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.

  3. Alignment of text in events table is inconsistent

    Alignment of text in events table is inconsistent. Event frame table always shows text centre aligned e.g. Name, start time,endtime etc and column names are always left aligned

  4. Alarms/Shutdowns

    Having the ability to view alarms/shutdowns and status' on the trends would be valuable in troubleshooting. For instance; currently you can see the unit shut down but do not know why.

  6. Default time range for Event Frame trend

    Set the default start time for all EF trends to be 5 minutes before the EF start time and make it configurable. Use case is attached.

    Root cause EF are of no value here unless the default view when you first view the event is the start time of the trend is the start time of the root cause EF. In that case, the root cause EF overrides the default start time offset mentioned above. Also format it so the user can see the start of the event on the trend.

    Sometimes, an EF triggers when a condition has been…

  7. Filter Events Table by Severity

    Would like to be able to filter Events Table using "severity" column, whether above a certain "severity" (>Warning) or selecting individual severity (Warning OR Critical)

  9. Add "Can be acknowledge" filter in PI Vision Event table

    In PI Vision it is not possible to get rid of not acknowledgable event il the table filter appearing on the configure table on the right of the display while it is possible to do in manually on the table.
    Add that feature will enable to get a display for real time alarming with only not acknowledge event appearing.
    Currently we have not acknowledgeable event appearing.

  10. Allow text formatting and to left center text on events table

    As now the text is aligned in center! It does not look good!
    It should be possible to choose this for individual fields in the events table.

  11. Multistate behaviour for event table row background and text

    As now it is just event severity that gives different colours. It should be possible multistate the background color and text for events table rows to use the standard colours in a Alarm list as it is in the plant DCS Alarm list.
    Active alarms with red background, Not active and not acknowledged is yellow background. Critical events is blue. The rest is grey.
    This function should be possible to use with multistate and have the controlling attribute in the event frame.

  12. Ability to change acknowledge button color

    We are using event frames as alarms and in the event tables having the acknowledge button being green indicates there is no issue, it would be nice to be able to change the color to red or base it on how critical the event is.

  13. Grouping and showing the event frame attribute

    RIght now I am not able to filter and group the attribute from event frame, I need to show on the trends and hide others. It would be nice if we can pick and sort the attributed of event frames to be displayed on trend.

  14. Event Frame in time line form

    To have a new symbol, which has the similar function as Event Table. Instead of table symbol, hopefully we can have bar chart kind of symbol instead, as shown in the attached pic. It will much cleaner that way and let user have a better view of the events happened for the past shift.

  15. Event Comparison - Link secondary reference elements to Attribute list and display

    Currently, the attribute window in the Event Comparison displays shows a link from the EF to the primary reference element, and then drill downs to attributes of that element.  Attributes selected through this window would dynamically link other EFs displayed in the trend to their respective reference element.

    We would like the attribute display to allow multiple reference elements to be accessible through the attribute window, not just the primary reference.

  16. Stacked y-axis on Event Details trend

    As an engineer, I would like the ability to show the Event Details trend with a stacked y-axis to provide an alternative and clearer view of my data so that I can compare attributes during the event duration without the trend lines overlapping.

  17. Move forwards or backwards in time on the Event Details page

    As an engineer, I would like the ability to move the trend time range forwards and backwards in time on the Event Details page so I can investigate what happened before and after an event.

  18. Support 'Apply Time Range' and other event actions from the Events Table

    As a PI Vision user, I want to be able to right-click on an Event in the Events Table and select Apply Time Range to update the time range of the Editor display. Adding this functionality would be consistent with the Events Search pane, where this option already exists.

    The other events pane options should also be possible from events table:
    Compare Similar Events by Name
    Compare Similar Events by Type

  19. Customize Event Frame Details Window

    As a user of PI Vision I would like to be able to add a customizable Event Details Hyperlink to a notification. Instead of having the trend with all of the related attributes underneath I would just like the display to show the trend, or at least have the attribute tables minimized.

  20. golden batch designation for EF

    When pinning an event frame to create a golden batch set a property on the event frame so that the user can use other tools like DataLink to find golden batches that were defined in PI Vision.  Nedd to be able to also put some kind of identifier on a golden batch to tell it what it refers to since I can have many golden batches for different recipes.  One custmer I worked with recently had over 100 recipes.
