  1. Trend: Scale grouping

    On the trend symbol, we would like to select specific tags to share a single scale which auto-updates, while the other tags use independent scales. All on the same trend.

    For example on the same trend,
    • PICXXXXXX.PV & PICXXXXXX.SV need to share a single scale which auto-updates using the range of their plotted values.
    • PICXXXXXX.MV & ZTPXXXXXX.PV need to share a single scale which auto-updates using the range of their plotted values.
    • Tag PICXXXXXX.MODE needs to be on its own axis scale

    The solution provided for the idea titled "Trend: Shared dynamic scales" creates a single scale…

  2. Add tag name/AF path in sidebar

    Add the tag name/AF path to the sidebar. When modifying a symbol on a Vision display, the name of the tag or AF path is not in the sidebar. It would be very helpful to see this when editing a symbol.

  3. Offer a new Time Series native symbol

    As a PI Vision user I want to be able to add time series of an AF Attribute with PIPoint data reference or directly a PI Tag to a table and see each and every recorded values with their timestamps for the time range of the display's time bar. Of course with scrolling functionality like other existing table symbols.

    I need to visualize each individual recorded values to understand how production cycles are triggered for example. Other use case would be to visualize individual values around a peak.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Stacked bar chart

    I have summarized energy data for kWh consumption by day for buildings and plant that is written at specific end of shift day week points.

    I'd like to be able to have this display as a stacked bar where the various plant consumption components are shown as a proportion of the bar and the height of the bar is the sum of the components.

    Classic stacked bar chart.

  7. Adding title position selection for Trend plots

    With Trend plots there's an issue where the cursor index can cover the title of the trend - by default the title is located on the top left of the trend plot.

    The suggestion would be either:

    1.) Make the title move up if you hover with the cursor so that the cursor doesn't cover the title.

    OR / AND

    2.) Add the ability to select the position of the title for trend plots just as it is possible for XY plots.

  8. multi-line string of AF attribute value show multiline in pi vision table symbol

    Currently, some AF attributes' value is multi-line string. We hope pi vision can also display them in multi-line way .

    PI Vision 2021 introduces the ability to wrap text within the Table symbol.
    But it's for long text, if the AF attribute value is multi-line string, it will not wrap line according to line breaks.

  9. Improve Digital State visualization in PI Vision

    The digital state visualization PI Vision needs to be improved to allow the observation of the value with the time. The visualization of digital state values in PI Vision with trends has the following limitations:
    • It is not possible to have trend stacking: https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/320517-pi-vision/suggestions/13734045-trend-stacking
    • It is not possible to customize ranges for the traces outside the digital state values: https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/320517-pi-vision/suggestions/43035336-trend-with-digital-state-show-only-digital-state
    What we need is a modern visualization symbol that allows stack trend traces and properly shows the digital state variation with time. When hovering with the pointer we would like to display all values for that timestamp in…

  10. Ability to Add Limits to Gauges

    Using the AF limits, show the 'bands' or limits for the PI value. You can put a multi state which will change the colour of pointer, however you cannot tell by how much it is within the limits. See attached for a mocked up symbol built in PI Vision.

  13. Allow multiple traces to be selected at the same time in Configure Trend > Trace options

    Allow selection of multiple Traces in the Trace Options, and allow modification of the Legend Label for all of them at the same time so they all have the same Legend Label configuration

  14. Ad hoc trends from collections

    Select values from collections using Ctr to ad hoc trends.

    Right now we will get whole collection to ad hoc trend and need to remove unwanted values/atributes, we would like to get only selected values using CTL to ad hoc trends.

  15. XY Plot: Numerical formatting of scale

    Allow formatting of numerical values used in the scale to be configurable.
    E.g. use display digits set on attribute or be able to specify number of decimal places.

    Currently number formatting only affects the values that appear in the tooltip.

  16. Sizing logic for trends

    In PI ProcessBook, there is logic to show or hide certain formatting characteristics depending on the size of the trend symbol within the display. For example, as the symbol size gets smaller, the trend Title may be hidden.

  17. Create Collection of attribute for a single element using/not using template

    I would like to have the ability to create a collection of attribute for a single element which may be using a template so it will be easier if I have a collection of attribute and context switching so I can hide excluded attribute from a collection in a element.

    Display a question mark in trends when an event is questionnable and an icon when the event is annotated with the possibility to read the annotation by hovering the mouse over the icon (as it is done in Processbook)

  20. Fill under trend (area chart)

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