  1. Trend and Event Frame superimpose

    Would be great to superimpose Event Frames within a trend: in the same symbol. Really interesting when analysing a process or when troubleshooting.

  3. Composite Batch Overlays

    Ability to select a series of good batches to create a composite trend profiles for with avg, +/- 1 and 2 standard deviations for the composite group.

    Ability to plot individual currently running batches against the composites so you can see how current batches are performing vs. the best historical batches.

    Similar to how PI ProcessTemplates used to work.

  8. Access Vision Displays By Name Instead of ID

    When migrating displays from one environment to another using the Vision display utility there is no guarantee the ID will remain the same in the destination environment. Since Vision displays can only be linked to via ID, all links in both Vision and ProcessBook files would need to change. This significantly complicates the migration process and makes it very error-prone.

  9. 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.

  10. Resize drawing with define sizing value

    Have a line/rectangle in the PI Vision screen. Wanted to reduce the length - width/height of the line/rectangle.
    Wanted to adjust it by entering the height/width in numbers instead of drag by mouse?
    Means know line should be of width = 50px and rectangle of width=100/height=80. wanted to set it exactly.

  12. Trend: colorize area below tag-line

    I have a tag (0/1) and want to colorize the area below the tag to increase the visibility of the status... (Optimum would be a changeable transparency to avoid the hiding of other tags/attributes)... is this possible?

  14. Allow multistating based on conditions from multiple data items

    As a PI Vision user, I would like to add multistates to my display's symbols that depend on conditions of multiple data items. For example, when the pump status tag has a value of "Active" and the pump flowrate tag has a value less than 10, turn the value symbol red.

  15. Drop down for collections

    Have an option for collections to appear as a drop down list in the display. This would be beneficial for context switching in displays, so that the user could then select from a drop down on the display which element to view. Instead of having to scroll through a collection and double click the element.

  16. Out of spec (min/max) shows up as bad data

    Data that is outside of the range of the Min and Max set in AF show up as 'bad data' in a multi-state display. This means instead of the display on the screen flashing red they turn blank (how our multi-state is setup)

    I think this shouldn't behave this way. If my temperature drops below the min I want it to be shown out of spec, not bad.

    I also can't just change the min and max as it drives the scale on the gauges.
