  1. Table: Labeling Options for Name column

    Add ability to control what is shown in the Name column. This should have the same options as other symbols: attribute name only, description, asset name, or use custom label to provide a friendly name

  2. Event Frames Table & Features enhancements

    • The ability to view event frame attributes/annotations (or referenced element attributes) within the Events table in PI Vision
    • Select multiple events in the table and define a reason code and/or comment for all events selected
    • Input/View comments from the event table instead of having to open a new window in PI Vision for each event
    • Ability to use the event table with tablets/phones (Not sure if this is possible already? I tried on our system and was unsuccessful)
    • sort/filter based on the highest production targets which are event frame attributes
    Use Case:
    • During well…

  3. Add PI Vision display option to show XY plot Regression line equation

    In PI Vision 2019, it is now possible to add a regression line to an XY plot (See: User Guide PI Vision 2019>XY Plot>Format data pairs for an XY plot) However there is no way to see the equation of this line.
    In PI ProcessBook it was possible to see the regression line's coefficients on hover.

  4. Possibility to add more than 2 most recent points to XY Plots for better analysis

    We would like the possibility of configuring more than 2 most recent points in XY plots to better understand the trend of equipment readings in the past. A better comparison can be made with recent points with different colors and more data in the graph.

  5. Multistate: Provide a way to refresh digital state information

    Digital states used for multistates are currently stored with a display, so if they are modified PI Vision does not currently detect this change. PI Vision should provide a way to update multistates with the new modified digital states. This applies to enumeration sets in AF as well.

  6. When building a trend in PI ProcessBook could a copy of multiple cells in Excel with tag names be pasted into the "Tags in Plot:"

    When building a trend in PI ProcessBook could a copy of multiple cells in Excel with tag names be pasted into the "Tags in Plot:". Currently a paste of such a copy results in only the first cell contents in the tags list. It would be great to copy multiple tag names and paste into the "Tags in Plot:" and get all of the tags added to the trend.

  7. improve display of table lookups in pi vision

    Currently PI Vision suffers from serious performance problems when displaying more than a handful of table lookups on a single page. What is the point in having table lookups in AF if we can't effectively visualize them in PI Vision?

  8. Pin your time when navigating displays

    Provide an option to pin the current time you are looking at on 1 display, and carry that time forward to any other display that you end up navigating to.

    Useless for dashboards but very powerful for process control system graphic replicas.

  9. trend scale right

    Trend y-axis scales should be able to be shown on both sides of a trend.When plotting two tags with different scales, having one scale on the right and one on the left would improve trend readability.

  10. Vertical Gauges: Fix width of bar, independently of the displayed digits of the scale

    Currently the width of the vertical gauge is taken up by the bar + the scale.

    This has the effect that the width of the bar is dependent on the maximum number of digits of the scale. This creates problems when copying & pasting a gauge or using a vertical gauge in a collection if different values with different number of digits are displayed.

    It would be better if the width of the bar would be fixed when copied or used in a collection, and the scales would be added outside of that.

  11. Symbol Properties: Set exact symbol position in pixels

    As an addition to the feedback item "Symbol Properties: Set exact symbol size in pixels", it would be really useful to be able to set the exact position of symbols. This would make it a lot faster to line up symbols with each other.

    The option to align left/middle/right or distribute horizontally/vertically helps somewhat, but often fails to do exactly what is needed. Being able to directly enter the position would alleviate that problem and make authoring Displays a lot faster and less frustrating.

  13. 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.

  14. Support Cross Domain authentication for PI Processbook to PI Vision 2019 Migration Utility

    On an architecture with Utility on a computer located on a different domain of the PI Vision server, the authentication fail.

    Could it be possible to prompt a login window (as for AF)

    Currently the migration utility will attempt to access PI Vision as the user who is currently logged into the machine. Could you please share more information about your use case and how would a login prompt be useful in this case? Does the user need to enter login credentials so that they can authenticate as a different user (a user other than the user currently logged into the machine)?

  15. Use the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable

    The PI Vision install kit currently includes the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2015, 2017, and 2019. There is a version available that combines these versions (https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads). Please include this version with the PI Vision install kit instead. This should make the PI Vision install kit a bit smaller and shrink the list of included programs.

    Of course, if the dependence on the 2015 and/or the 2017 version is eliminated, then it would be better to not implement this suggestion.

  17. Display propagation between environments in regards to hyperlinks

    We create PI Vision Displays in a Test environment, before Migrating them to Production. The Main display has many Hyperlinks to other Displays (and those Displays have Hyperlinks back to Main). When we propagate Displays from Test to Prod, all the links are broken and we spend quite a bit of time updating all of them. Is there a way to have the Hyperlink to another Display in the environment be independent of the Display number in the environment? Or is there a way to manually set Display's number? Related to that, is there a way to propagate a new…

  18. Support for dragging a data item from search to a custom symbol's configuration pane

    As a developer of a PI Vision custom symbol, I want to add the ability for the user to drag an af attribute/pi tag into a field and then use the path of the attribute/tag to perform a web api call. I am looking for similar functionality to how the multi-state feature works.

  20. Asset comparison table - add navigation links for each row

    Customer would like to be able to clic over a row on the Asset comparison table, and dynamically update some objects on the dashboard, just like PI Webparts Tree View used to work.
