  1. Event Frames Table & Features enhancements

    • The ability to view event frame attributes/annotations (or referenced element attributes) within the Events table in PI Vision
    • Select multiple events in the table and define a reason code and/or comment for all events selected
    • Input/View comments from the event table instead of having to open a new window in PI Vision for each event
    • Ability to use the event table with tablets/phones (Not sure if this is possible already? I tried on our system and was unsuccessful)
    • sort/filter based on the highest production targets which are event frame attributes
    Use Case:
    • During well…

  2. Provide alternative navigation link in events table

    The Event frame drilldown can be useful but in many cases we would prefer to link directly to a pi vision screen for the primary elements for each event. It would be great if we could set up a link like can be done for most other objects in vision to another pi vision dashboard and set the event's element as asset context, with the event frame timeline auto-populated. This would allow for more flexibility than the current event trending to meet the specific use case needs.

  3. Start/End/Duration in Gantt Chart

    Need the ability to see start/end time and duration when hovering cursor over event frames in the Gantt chart (process book currently has this functionality)

  4. Composite Batch Overlays

    Ability to select a series of good batches to create a composite trend profiles for with avg, +/- 1 and 2 standard deviations for the composite group.

    Ability to plot individual currently running batches against the composites so you can see how current batches are performing vs. the best historical batches.

    Similar to how PI ProcessTemplates used to work.

  5. multiple ways to show values

    Hi - there should be a possibility to add multiple thresholds to the trends, to compare and easier display high and low values. Also it would be great if the lines could change from vertical to horizontal to show the range.

  8. Export event frame data to CSV from event details and comparison displays

    From the event details or event comparison displays in PI Vision, it would be useful to export event frame data (including attributes and values) to CSV/XML.

  9. Event Frame Comparison Hide Multiple Event Quickly

    Currently in the event frame comparison page, you can hide event frames from trends by right-clicking on the event frame and selecting the hide option.

    It should be easier to hide events quickly: Optimize the way events can be hidden or provide the ability to hide multiple event frames in one go instead of one at a time.

  11. PI Vision Event frames should show child elements in the Attributes panel of the Events comparison page.

    When viewing event comparisons, the Attributes pane only lists the event frame attributes, the referenced element, and the referenced element's attributes. It currently cannot drill down and trend child element's attributes.

  12. Event Comparison: Add ability to set time range / end time (X-axis)

    Sometimes there are very long event frames in the event comparison and it would be nice to be able to set the width of the x-axis to cut these event frames off at a certain duration. It's inconvenient to have to manually exclude them, and sometimes one still wants to look at long and short event frames in the same display.

  13. Compare Child Event Frames by Name and not by Time Range

    I would expect that child event frames can be compared by name rather than by time range as in the current design of PI Vision.

    This would be very useful when exploring batches (operations, phases).

  14. Give us back BatchView functionality

    In the old batch view of PIM I could find a batch by name. This seem impossible in the present Event Frames viewer of PI Vision. I have tried pinning the batches of interst, they all go yellow. And I have to watse loads of time fishing for the batches to compare to. COME ON give batch the power we had with the batch view tool in PIM!

  15. Show Date and Time Stamps When Comparing Similar Events

    When comparing similar events, add functionality to see not only the relative time since the batch began but also the exact date and time as you click around the trend.

  16. Event Comparison Display - add trend configuration options

    Currently, Event Comparison trend has 0 configuration options.  I need the ability to show markers or a scatter plot similar to the pop up trend/ad hoc workspace.

    Trend configuration enhancements to the Event Comparison Display are being evaluated for PI Vision 2021, specifically the ability to show markers and setting value scale options.

    As this idea contains many suggestions for Event Comparison Display enhancements, we will update this description on the ability to show markers. There are existing enhancement requests for some of the other items listed. Please add your comments/use cases for the functionality in the appropriate enhancement item to let us know which ones are valuable to you.

    Event Comparison Display: Allow scale configuration

    Event Comparison: Freehand zoom on event frame overlay
    https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/320517-pi-vision/suggestions/18834874-event-comparison-freehand-zoom-on-event-frame-ove

    Event Frame Comparison Maximize Trend

    https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/320517-pi-vision/suggestions/36493633-event-frame-comparison-maximize-trend

    If you do not see the specific functionality you need in these enhancement requests, please let us know or create a new idea.

  17. Plot summary profile of all Events in Event Comparison

    I would like the option to plot summary calculation profiles (average, maximum, minimum of all the Event Frames currently in my Event Comparison) in order to compare each Event Frame to the average of the included Event Frames, i.e. if I have 10 event frames then I would like to display the concentration over time for each individual Event Frame (10 profiles) as well as the average concentration profile of all the event frames (1 profile). This is somewhat like a golden batch but is a statistically manufactured plot as opposed to being from a golden run.

    See https://pisquare.osisoft.com/thread/36396-how-do-i-plot-an-average-for-an-attribute-from-event-frames.

  18. Multiple Traces on Overlay Trend

    Ability to put multiple traces (like flow and temperature) on a single overlay trend, still with showing data from multiple events/ batches or comparison against golden batch/events.

  19. Drop-down list of available Event Frame comments in PI Vision

    When an Event Frame is selected in Events Comparison Displays, the user should see a drop-down list instead of or in addition to the "Add Comment" text box.

    This drop-down list should include possible comments (configured in the EF templates) that the user might select and add to the event.

  20. Events Comparison: Configure via URL parameters

    Allow configuring event comparison displays in an ad hoc way so that the search criteria and the attributes shown can be set through URL parameters.

    For example: As an operator, I would like to receive email notifications with hyperlink URL pointing to the correct Events Comparison display, along with configurable search criteria.
    The same automation could be used in an iFrame inside a 3rd party application to open (inside the iFrame in Kiosk mode of course) a related and contextualized Events Comparison display with targeted search criterias or using a simple mouse-over.
