  2. Sampled Data Symbol

    Please add a Pi Vision Symbol for Sampled Data (similar to Data Link in Excel) to show a row column timestamped historical data table for selected tags. This would be similar to the Trend, only in table format for the time period at the bottom of the screen at a given interval (15m, 1h, 1w, etc).

    This would help Pi Vision expand to be more of a basic reporting platform in addition to HMI trend and single value viewer.

  3. Integration with Power BI

    Ability to have some better integration between PI Vision and Power BI.

    Power BI is good at doing daily summary values but not good at trending. PI Vision is the opposite.

    It would be useful to be able to jump between the two or embed one in the other.

  4. Symbol Properties: Set exact symbol size in pixels

    Ability to size symbols by pixels. In other words, we can manually define the size of the symbols by entering height/length and width properties.

  6. Better handle incompatible data type event in PI Vision trend

    Scenario: Your company has a PI tag set up as string that primarily gets float values. It is a string because it sometimes contains messages explaining why a result was not obtained.

    The tag is set up as a double attribute in AF and plotted in Vision. This works fine unless a non-numeric value is encountered within the Time Range you are looking at. If this happens, the trend is blank and No Data is displayed.

    While PI annotations would have been a good use in this situation, it is difficult to go back and change this when you have…

  8. Bar graph of power flow into directional arrows

    Instead of just an arrow showing flow. How about a green arrow that fills up with a red color as loading goes up. That way you can quickly see how close you are to your line or path limits.

  9. Improved filtering options in PI Vision Display Utility

    In addition to being able to filter and sort by display name and owner, several other fields might be considered as well. For example, date last accessed, date last modified, and date created. These fields would be useful to include in case a user wanted to manage/remove only displays that are no longer used. I'm certain there are plenty of other categories to include that would make Vision Display Utility even more robust and user-friendly, especially when making changes in bulk.

  11. "Related attributes" feature in PI Vision

    As a maintenance operator, I want the ability to select a symbol in PI Vision (symbol, image. e) and have a Related Attributes pane show other attributes that belong to the same element. This would allow me to quickly drag the attributes from that pane onto a trend and observe how my asset behaved over time

  12. Set Permissions for Root folder "Home"

    As already implemented for subfolders, we would like to set permissions also on root folder "Home".

    Use Case: We would like to make sure that only creation of new displays in subfolders is possible and not in home folder.

  13. Multistate: Ability to control symbol rotation based of the data value

    Based on the value of the tag, add capability to also define the angle at which the symbol should rotate. This would come very handy while indicating wind directions, drop/rise in value etc.

  15. Make Element and Category Drag and Drop Consistent for Child Attributes

    Comparing three of the available methods for dragging and dropping multiple attributes onto the display for table or trend symbol shows inconsistency in how child attributes are handled.
    1. Dragging and dropping the element name brings all root and child attributes into the symbol.
    2. Dragging and dropping an attribute category name brings only the root level attributes.
    3. Drilling into a root level attribute to display its children and then dragging and dropping the root level attribute name will only bring this attribute but not its children.
    The behavior should be consistent. I this case, the user would prefer…

  16. Copied text box keeps moving up and down if we try to change the text in it

    Once a text box is copied and pasted and the user tries to edit/change the text in it, the text box jumps across the display as the user is typing. The user then has to manually drag it back to the desired location. Not sure if this was only with the specific customer I was assisting or if the issue is more widespread.

  17. Copied text box doesn't paste in the location that is clicked before the paste, but instead is pasted right next to the original text box

    Copied text box doesn't paste in the desired location that is clicked before the paste occurs, but instead is pasted right next to the original text box. The customer then has to drag it across the display instead.

  19. Drag to manipulate trend scale values

    As a process engineer, I should be able to manipulate trend scales by dragging the top or bottom of the y axis so that I can align curves and similar patterns of data for comparison.
