  1. Trend: Time Range: Duration and Offset - Add option to support start time

    Currently the Trend object's Time Range has a Duration and Offset option which will take the End Time of the display and a specified duration for the trend's timerange. We need to have the ability to do the same based on the Start Time and a duration. Can you please add a new Time Range option "Duration and Offset from Start"?

    The use case for this is that we are comparing batch phases against a golden batch's phase, but the phase duration can and do differ. Having an option to have the trend start at a selected batch phase's start…

  2. Plot markers for all archived events for step tags

    When plotting a tag with the "step" attribute on in a PI Vision trend with the scatter plot trace option, not all archived events are shown.
    A workaround is to create a Formula Data Reference attribute in AF that points to the tag with the stepped option off.

  3. Bring back column filters in event frame tables!

    the column filters in event frame tables were great! with the addition of other attributes in tables, I was really looking forward to having column filters on these as well. this allows for much greater slicing of event frames and much better performance.

  4. Allow all limit attributes to be added as columns in Tables

    Currently only the Target limit attribute is able to be added as a column in Table symbols. It would be nice to be able to add the other limit attributes (e.g. HiHi, LoLo, etc) to be added as columns too.

  5. URL parameter to configure trend scale range

    Using URL parameters I am aware of being able to select either single or multiple scales for ad-hoc trends.
    I would like to be able to specify the zero and span of the ad-hoc trend via URL parameters. This would standardize all ad-hoc trends shared between our PI Vision Users without needing to update the database settings for our data items or manually adjust each ad-hoc trend.

  6. Fill under trend

    Fill the area between the trend line and 0 (or a configurable value) with color. This makes deviations from a desired value much easier to see.

  7. Control visibility of Image symbol through use of multi-state

    Would like to control the visibility of an image symbol by setting its fill value to "Transparent" via the Multi-State functionality.
    Bonus: Would be nice to display different image files dynamically based on the values set in the Multi-State functionality. IE: image1.png <= 1, image2.png <=2, image3.png

  8. Trend: Multistate trend graphic

    We are using PI Vision to provide a single dashboard view of our dams across the state. However, not all dams use the same suite of level indications. As such, we are using derived templates to discern the differences.

    It would be wonderful if we could keep the levels for (say) dam-type 'A' as one trend graphic, then multistate the graphic to that it "disappears" when dam-type 'B' is selected; at which time the dam-type 'B' levels trend graphic is displayed.

    Similar functionality is currently available for the "value" graphic. Hence, would it be possible to apply equivalent logic for…

  9. Allow NaN on limits for PI Vision 2021

    We evaluate alarms that are not configured to NaN so that we can properly display alarm limits to the user for only the limits that are used.

    We upgraded to Pi Vision 2021 to correct an issue we found during one of our support cases for slow call-up performances when minimum/maximum limit traits were used. While the performance has been significantly improved to open the gauge element, the multi-state evaluation shows as "Bad Data" due to multistate limits attributes that evaluate to "NaN". In the previous version of Vision, "NaN" attributes were ignored and the color animation would display properly.

  10. Include Target attribute limit in Multistates in PI Vision

    Currently only the target attribute limit is not included when pulling attribute limits from AF limits. It would be nice for it to be included so that I can configure multistate colors based on whether or not the value is above or below the target. This would make Multistating more consistent with the Target indicator avaliable on Value and Table symbols.

  11. Make a Group of Costume Symbols or personal Symbols

    Hi
    When you have many users, it would bee nice to have an \ext\ area where you did not make trouble for other users.
    This possibility could open this good Custome Symbols for more people :)
    Regards
    Ulf

  12. Include border of polygons when setting transparency through Multi-State

    Would be nice if all components of a polygon symbol were included when setting the fill to "Transparent" via Multi-State. Currently, if you want to turn on or off the visibility of a polygon (IE rectangle) only the fill is affected and the border is left behind still being displayed. Either that or give us Multi-State control over the border as well.
    Currently, the work around is to create two rectangles and set the layering so one is slightly bigger and behind the front rectangle so it looks like a border and set the Multi-State on the two symbols using…

  13. Custom Symbols using PIWebAPI in PI Vision

    Dear OSIsoft Support Team,

    We are currently developing with WebAPI for some custom symbols in PI Vision.

    We know that currently PI Vision 2020 no longer requires PIWebAPI and we would like to know if the PIWebAPI is going to be deprecated in the future or if it's a tool that is in OSIsoft roadmap for the future

  14. Add option to hide 'No items match the Collection Criteria' banner in Collection

    I want to show flows where only one source is active at a time. Using a number of arrows and gauges - but the orientation changes on the display.

    Collections are a great option here, but I want to hide that banner when the criteria is not met (the particular source is not active).

    Make this a switch that I can turn on/off in the criteria dialog.

  15. On Trend symbols, have the option to specify database limits from AF or from the PI Data Archive

    Trend symbols can be configured with Scale Range using Database Limits.
    Have the option to specify database limits from AF or from the PI Data Archive

    A Trend for a pi point attribute has AF Limits based on formula, analytics or pi point.
    If the trend time context is in the future, but the limit attributes do not have future data, then the trend will use the PI Point's Zero and Span tag attributes from the Data Archive.
    If the Database Limits are set for AF, then the last limit attribute value should always be used for the y-axis scale

  16. Asset comparison table symbol to show child attribute only in column name

    This is needed to fit all (or maximum) column on one screen in the table
    Currently we have to see column name as Parent attribute|Child Attribute. If this is enabled to have only child attribute in column name then maximum number of columns can be fit into one screen and table will look more better

  17. Display multiple value symbols for the same tag at different timestamps

    For example, a display containing two value symbols that display data for a tag. One value symbol shows the value for the tag at a specified time yesterday and the other one shows the value if the tag at a specified time today.

  19. Trend with error bands/ limit bands, See attachment for visuals

    Is there a possibility to add error bands (or error bars) to a line plot in PI Vision? The error band could be based on an error signal, or two absolute value signals for the min and max. The error band most often show a confidence interval for a signal, and can vary across time, so visualizing a standard deviation only is not necessarily sufficient.

  20. Access to PI Vision Display events?

    Symbols have their own initialization function (init()) that allows me to run script when a symbol is loaded on a display.

    I am wondering if I can accessa similar onLoad() or Init() an a PI Vision display.
