  1. AF Templates with no data or pi tag not found

    We have an AF structure that uses templates for a few device types. Our templates are setup to resolve PI tags for the device if we have them available. If we don't, it says PI Tag Not Found - which is fine. Once the device is added in the field (out of the office), that AF element will update and work.

    When in PI Vision, the user gets thousands of errors saying the PI tag is not found. I would like an option in PSE to set the element attribute to ignore the error if the tag is not found,…

  3. Add RootPath functionality to Event Frame Table

    I would like the ability to leverage the RootPath URL parameter to return all event frames tied to child elements of the selected asset. Currently, this seems to work only if the display is created against an asset with all of the same child element names as the context-switched element. I would like this to work for any set of child elements regardless of the child element names.

  5. Access display settings from a display

    As a user, I want to be able to access display settings for the currently open display without having to go to the home page, identify the right display, and then edit settings.

  6. Set the size of the display

    A way to set the maximum size of a display, with the number of pixels or inches/centimeters, or even its size based on a common screen display would be really helpful.

  7. Access Vision Displays By Name Instead of ID

    When migrating displays from one environment to another using the Vision display utility there is no guarantee the ID will remain the same in the destination environment. Since Vision displays can only be linked to via ID, all links in both Vision and ProcessBook files would need to change. This significantly complicates the migration process and makes it very error-prone.

  10. Allow sharing access to data when sharing a display

    When a user shares a display, give the option to allow them to share the data contained in the display (PI tags/AF elements and attributes) with the AF identities that the display is shared with.

  11. 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.

  13. Provide Select, Select All, and Move Displays functionality from the "My Displays"/"Favorites" folders.

    If my displays are located in different folders I must navigate to each folder, select the display(s) and move them to the desired folder.

    It would be great to be able to move all of my displays at once from the "My Displays" view.

    It could also be useful to have the ability to select and move displays from the "Recent", "Favorites", and "All Displays" views as well.

  14. Ability to remove graphics from Graphic Library

    As a PI Vision admin, I would like to be able to remove graphics/images from the graphic symbol library so that I can ensure that display creators are only using approved graphics in order to standardize the look of displays.

  15. Display Keywords support for special characters

    Please add support for the '-' character.
    Trying to add equipment names, like '60F-1A', into the display Keywords drops the '-' (gets adjusted to '60F1A')
    This is not useful when searching for displays containing the equipment.

  16. Add description to search results

    Show more information in the search results when searching PI Data Archive.

    Just showing the Tag Name is not helpful on sites with large volumes of complexly named tags.

    The ability to specify which attributes to display in search results would be ideal, so you can see description or Point Source or ExDesc in the results.

  17. Add element name and description to display

    We should be able to add element's name and description to symbols, without the need to create another attribute for that. So we could easily have element relative titles and labels...

  19. Remove x-axis scale values from XY Plot

    When we make an XY Plot small, the scaling for the x-axis overlays on top of the trend. We'd like a way to make the values of the scale invisible.
