  1. Allow sharing a display (to users) with edit permission

    Vision 2020 lets you share edit permissions with AF Identities, that is far short of useful at our company. There aren't discrete sets of groups that each display belongs to. Displays are collaborated on by any number and combination of people. To make this new feature work we would have a limitless number of AF identities. We need the ability for users to share edit permissions with other users, not identities. This gives the user full control of access and does not put a ridiculous managerial burden on admins. Thanks!

  3. Conditional formatting

    Please give us 'on the fly' multi state options. F.e. when working with multiple assets , being able to enter a simple line of logic coding to be able to color fill objects accordingly (like how it is done in Excel If-Then and conditional formatting).

  5. Now button Text and Color

    If the page is not showing current time then the "NOW" text should state "Past" and the background of the now button should turn red (or some other color)

  6. search by description

    Search by a tag description on search. Currently you must search by when using PI AF, we use tagnames, so using tag descriptions would make the queries esier when searching for a specific system with just the description.

  7. PI Vision 12hr interval time range

    PI Vision default search time range, that are available (1h, 8h, 1d, 1w, 1mon) do not offer a 12 hour search option. As this is mining standard shift length, it would be very convenient and helpful to have the 12h time range option as default.

  8. Trend: Set lower or upper limit only for scale range

    Currently we can set the Y-Axis limits to be dependent on the plotted values or set both the upper and lower limit.

    I would like to be able to fix either the upper or lower limit, and have the other limit still be dependent on the plotted values.

  9. Drop support for TLS 1.0 & TLS 1.1

    Please drop support for TLS 1.0 & TLS 1.1. These have been known to be insecure protocols for a while now and have been superseded by TLS 1.2 & TLS 1.3.

    "Compatibility with older browsers" is not a good reason to keep them around, since even Internet Explorer supports TLS 1.2 & TLS 1.3. Anyone using an older browser should upgrade for their own good.

  10. Mobile view for displays

    As users of PI Vision on cell phones, we think it would be very
    necessary to be able to design the same PI Vision display for being use in a PC and in a mobile environment. Then, when changes are made in a display, they will be applied in both design versions (PC and Mobile). Just as an example, Power Bi uses a very similar approach.

  11. Show the scale for a trend on the right side of the trend

    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.

  14. PI Vision Display Utility: Copy displays between PI Vision databases on the same machine

    The 2019 PI Vision Display Utility was changed so that displays from a PI Vision Server cannot be copied over to a different database on the same PI Vision Server. We keep a backup of the PI Vision SQL database on the same machine as PI Vision in case we need to restore a display from the database backup.

    To support this, we would like the ability to copy displays between different PI Vision databases on the same machine.

  15. Optimize PI Vision with WebAssembly

    Generally, WebAssembly code is smaller than JavaScript code and executes faster. However, WebAssembly is not supported by very old browsers such as Internet Explorer.

    Please consider replacing some of PI Vision's JavaScript code with WebAssembly. Since PI Vision is arguably the PI program that users use the most, it is important for it to be as good as possible.

  16. Asset Page Nav top and Bottom

    When browsing assets with more than 1 page of assets found, you have to scroll to the bottom to move to next page, it would be handy to have page navigation arrows at top and bottom of asset list

  19. XY Plot: ability to change the X-axis labels text direction to vertical

    The x-axis scale values of XY-plots can look cluttered because they are horizontal (Parallel with the scale). There should be a check-box that allows you to rotate these scale values to be perpendicular to the x-axis to improve visibility. Attached is an image of this feature in Excel.

  20. Export PI Vision displays with the Vision full-path folder name that they belong to to a CSV file.

    As right now, there is a KB introduce how to list all the PI Vision display with it's Display Owner and Shared Identity
    and how to list PI Vision displays with the Vision folder name that they belong to using SQL.
    But the SQL could not get the folders full path(ParentFolder and ChillFolder), neither the path of Processbook displays shared in PI Vision.
    If there is a function that could list PI Vision displays
    information(Name, Owner, Sharing with, full-path folder) it would be a big help for users and administration.
