  4. Upload ProcessBook display file to Coresight

    The current mechanism to add ProcessBook displays is to copy them to a shared drive. Unfortunately our IT like many (I actually agree with them) don't particularly like opening firewalls for the Windows file share.
    An easy solution would be to provide an upload option via Coresight. An authorised user would be able to save the PDI file to the display location via a page/dialog on Coresight. This would reduce some of the friction. The upload could also do some basic check like only allow pdi files.

  6. Mobile version - Search specific PI server

    Mobile version search needs to be able to select a specific PI server to search first. We have a lot of PI servers, so searching all of them takes a huge amount of time when we know exactly which server we would like to search on. We hit the result limit because we are not able to select a specific PI server to search

    Apologies if it exists in a newer version. Please provide a PID (proportional, integral, derivative object) like you would find in an HMI with: PV (with optional SPC limits), SP (with optional upper and lower limits) and OUTput (with optional upper and lower limits). Attached JPG as lame example.

  11. Text Editing in CoreSight 2016 beta

    In the 2016 Beta, is it possible to edit text once entered, or must it be deleted and re added ? It would be useful to adjust the text size, and ideally have an italic font as well as a standard font such as is already in use.

  13. Set the order of the root import folders when more than one root folder is defined

    Customer Issue: Import folders are listed in the order they are added which makes it difficult to sort them if more folders need to be included later.

    Enhancement Request: Allow administrators to set the import folder order.

    Workaround: If possible, include the import folders under the same root folder subfolders of an import directory are displayed in alphabetical order. Another method is to add the import fodlers in the order you want the import folders to be listed in the Home page.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 117008.

  14. Share an event in email

    Also include a link to the same event details page in PI Coresight and a link to the display the event was on when shared, preserving all time context.

  19. Multistate back in History shows Min / Max

    In current time/real time, multistate is based on the value at the current time. However, if the user changes the time of the display to be back in history (not in current time), then it shows a summary values (like min/max/avg) of the attribute indicating if something over that time period was in a bad state. This shows the user that something wrong happened during this time range rather than a value at the end time of the time range.

  20. Trend: Adjust an Event (EF) Start Time or End Time directly from a Trend

    As a super user process engineer, I want to be able to click on an event and see that event start time and end time brackets on the trends and change the start/end time stored in AF by dragging the time marker SO THAT I can fix the event trigger times based on the data I'm visualizing and interpreting since the trigger equations don’t always get it exactly right.
