  1. Add left pane toolbar visibility for PI Vision mobile users

    A custom menu extension was created for users to navigate PI Vision Displays, but it cannot be seen since the menu is hidden on certain mobile devices. A URL Option to allow for the navigation menu to be viewed would allow access to the custom menu extensions.

  6. PI Vision has no hierarchy widget so representing AF hierarchy is very difficult

    PI Vision should have a hierarchical widget like many other products that would allow you to display AF hierarchy or load a hierarchy from XML.
    Displaying a tree in a table is a tedious and visually unappealing option for users.

  9. Compare data over different time ranges on the same trend

    As a process engineer, I need to be able to overlay traces on the same trend with data from different time ranges so that I can compare different point in time. This may be the same data item over different time ranges or multiple different data items over different time ranges.

  10. Event Comparison: Table of events

    Allow adding a table to event comparison displays so that different information for each event can be displayed (for example recipe, cell-clone, ...). This would allow this information to be available similar to how it is displayed in the search results in BatchView

  12. Event Comparison: Trace configuration options

    Ability to configure trace line style, weight, and color for traces on event comparison trends. Color should be able to be based on attributes and style/weight should be able to be based on event or vice versa.

  13. PI Vision Digital State change attribute as plain text

    PI Vision Digital State simply do no show a long path and you can't see the full path of an assign attribute.

    Otherwise, it is better to change the attribute as plain text, Isn't good change an attribute as drag and drop from AF as provided

  14. PI Vision Change Tag manually

    Several times is hard to navigate through PI AF structure to change a assigned attribute and it is easier to change manually the path as plain text.

  16. Use ISO 8601 Date & Time Format

    In my humble opinion, the most sensible date/time format uses 24-hour time and is organised in a most-significant to least-significant sequence,

    e.g.  2019-07-17 15:15:15.123
    

    The military uses this format because they cannot afford ambiguities, such as when day number is between 1 and 12, or when hour number is 12.

    So the desired format is: YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss.sss

    where:-
    YYYY = four-digit calendar year number
    MM = zero-padded month number between 01 and 12
    DD = zero-padded day number between 01 and 31
    HH = zero-padded hour between 00 and 23
    mm = zero-padded minute between 00 and 59
    ss =…

  17. PI Vision folder access

    Customers would like to fully controll access to folders and sub-folders without having administrator access to the entire PI Vision server.

    Multiple organization specific folders with their own "administrators"
    Theese folder-admins can take ownership and modify displays in their folder but no other folders.

    At the moment only administrators and the owner can change owner on displays.

  19. Prevent users from opening display if they don't have access to data

    If a user does not have access to any of the data items (tags/attributes) on a display, they should not be able to open that display.

  20. PI Vision install kit should prompt to set app pools users

    The PI Vision install kit should allow the user running the installation to set the users that the application pools (PIVisionAdminAppPool, PIVisionServiceAppPool, PIVisionUtilityAppPool) run as.

    Particularly when upgrading to PI Vision 2019, a new app pool is created but by default it will run as Network Service, which may not be the desired account or the same account that the other app pools are running as.
