  1. Support AF Identities from Multiple Servers

    Currently, only 1 AF server is configured to provide identities for vision display security. Displays can show data from multiple AF servers, which could have different security mappings. It would be nice to be able to pull identities from multiple AF servers for display security that matches the AF security that already exists.

  2. Trend: Allow custom titles

    This feature is currently planned for an upcoming release of PI Vision.

  3. Tree View / Structure in PI Vision - Not consistant with other products.

    Not a fan of the Asset Framework tree structure in PI Vision. It needs to work as a tree structure just like PI System Explorer. The setup in Vision is too clunky and is hard to navigate.

    Again, I would like to see the tree structure consistent in all products to mirror System Explorer.

  4. Alert when not the owner (write access) of a display when entering "build mode"

    Often work has been done on a PI Vision display (with a known/published URL) only to realise you were not the owner when hitting the "save" button. A prompt when editing starts, or keeping the save button in the "inactive" state if not the display owner would help prevent this re-work.

    If you have a chance, we’d like to learn more about the use case behind this request.

    By default, PI Vision will automatically pick up and use the time zone of the client machine a user is running their browser on, so all times should be displayed in a user’s local time zone.

    If this isn’t the behavior you are seeing, or if you have a use case where users need more control over the time zone being used to display data please let us know.

  6. Improve display loading performance

    Large displays can take 30 seconds or longer to load. Load times are particularly slow in Internet Explorer. Displays needs to load faster.

  8. Add display pane to navigate through available displays

  9. PI Vision - "Internal Server Error"

    PI Vision "Internal Server Error" are not detailed enough to properly troubleshoot.
    As PI administrator, it would be great to have more granular and specific PI Vision "Internal Server Error" messages in order to get more insight as to what is going on.
    Our users have been experiencing intermittent "Internal Server Error", and we can not tell what the issue is either from the message log text neither when looking at the message logs level.
    If we have the ability to troubleshoot the root cause of the "Internal Server Error", we will be able to start looking at the problems…

  10. Display Utility: Support adding prefix to PI tag names when copying displays

    The PI Vision Display Utility allows modifying the PI or AF Server/Database when copying displays from on PI Vision server to another, but it does not support modifying PI tag names.

    We are syncing tags between environments and using prefixes to denote the environment. The PI Vision Display Utility does not support this scenario currently, since both the point ID and the tag name are different in the other environment, the tags cannot be resolved after displays are copied.

  11. Add the ability to only allow data entry users to change the date, but not time, for Manual Logger Web tours

    Customer wants to have an option to enter all tags at midnight, without having the user to select the time, therefore user only select the data and the time default to midnight (they can modify if required but it should always default to midnight).

  12. Have the entered data from PI Manual Logger Web be view-able from the PI Point trend and historical data table without refreshing.

    It is very important in the case of downtime to see the changes in Manual Logger Web immediately to ensure the downtime and run-time events are accurately measured. Therefore having the data not update immediately in the tag trend display in the manual logger web view or the historical data view is detrimental because it is difficult to know if the event was accurately entered.

  18. PI Vision Page Authoring Tools Improvement

    I noticed quite a number of issues while attempting to author a new PI Vision Page. Here are a list of things that are lacking in PI Vision compared to PI ProcessBook and needs to be included into PI Vision as soon as possible:
    1. Unable to Copy and Paste the Format from one Graphic/ Object to other Graphics/ Objects
    2. Limited Color Options in Format Shape/ Text/ Background/ Display
    3. Unable to Resize Grouped Graphics/ Objects
    4. Unable to set up Layers
    5. Value Text does not reflect Multistate color settings, only the shades behind the Value Text reflect…

  19. Have dynamic links that are AF attributes redirect the current display instead of opening new tab

    Currently, a "dynamic" links on PI Vision displays are Asset Framework attributes using StringBuilder that are displayed using a value symbol. When the symbol is clicked, a new tab is opened.

    Having the display redirect in the same tab would be more ideal.

  20. Removing Displays

    As an admin, I should be allowed to remove displays that other people created. I currently don't have that ability.
