  1. Trend: Allow custom titles

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

  2. Option to Disable Snapshot Values on Trends

    As a PI Vision end user, I would like an option to disable snapshot data on trend symbols. Currently, when a display's end time is set to "Now" and trends update in real-time, incoming snapshot values are cached and included as part of its traces whether those values are later compressed out or not.

    This can cause issues with connector data as PI Connectors do not support exception testing and often send very high frequency data. The resulting traces can become noisy to the point of uselessness even at fine-grained time ranges (ex: one minute).

    Ideally, trend symbols should have…

  4. Set symbol size independent of font size

    Currently, the font size is directly related to symbol size. This is problematic when migrating button symbols from PI ProcessBook to PI Vision, since they will not retain their width. This leads to manual work being required to adjust the display layout after displays are migrated.

    An alternative solution would be to add a button symbol to PI Vision that can be sized independently of the symbol's font size.

  5. Allow adjustment of the position of trend cursor labels

    When we want to show the timestamps and values at 2 very close points of time, the trend cursors (sliders) will overlap each other by default, obscuring the timestamps.

    Of course, we can zoom in the trend so that the sliders are further apart.
    But there will still be times when a broad range of duration is needed to be shown at the same screen with multiple slides and information needed at different points of time. Hence, it'll be good to have such a feature to allow users to freely adjust the height of the slider boxes.

  7. Single Gauge with Multiple Values

    Configure gauges using multiple attribute values. As an example, if you have a tank that has 2 level sensors, it would be helpful to show both levels in 1 gauge. Currently we accomplish this by creating 2 gauges and putting 1 on top of the other, but having a single symbol with both would be more functional.

  11. 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.

  12. Add Processbook Electric T&D Symbol to PI Vision

    PI vision currently does not have the Electric T&D symbols library that is included in Processbook. In the next release of PI Vision we would like to see these symbols available in processbook. Using the PI ProcessBook Migration Tool (PI Vision 2019) is not a viable workaround to use these symbols.

  13. Option to disable trend cursor sync

    Not all users like synchronized trend cursors (placing a cursor on one trend causes it to appear on other trends at the same time), some find it very distracting. There should be an option to disable this functionality.

  17. Trend and Event Frame superimpose

    Would be great to superimpose Event Frames within a trend: in the same symbol. Really interesting when analysing a process or when troubleshooting.

  19. Out of spec (min/max) shows up as bad data

    Data that is outside of the range of the Min and Max set in AF show up as 'bad data' in a multi-state display. This means instead of the display on the screen flashing red they turn blank (how our multi-state is setup)

    I think this shouldn't behave this way. If my temperature drops below the min I want it to be shown out of spec, not bad.

    I also can't just change the min and max as it drives the scale on the gauges.

  20. Multistate: Ability to control symbol rotation based of the data value

    Based on the value of the tag, add capability to also define the angle at which the symbol should rotate. This would come very handy while indicating wind directions, drop/rise in value etc.
