  1. Add descriptions to error symbols on the configuration page

    On the PI Vision administration page → Configuration → PI Vision Database, the symbols beside "SQL Server" and "Database" do not have a description. Please add descriptions for these, either in plain sight or as a tooltip.

    Clicking on "Save" shows an error message, but that is for the save failing, not the errors that occurred when the user first visited the page.

    To get my screenshot, I specified the "SQL Server" and "Database" correctly but did not have permission to log into the PI Vision database.

  2. Add ability to auto-hide assets pane independently from events pane

    Kiosk mode hides both the assets pane and the events pane but it is possible that a user may want to view the events pane if the display is configured to view event frame information (but the user does not care about adding items from the asset pane)

  4. Custom symbol security AD aware?

    PI Vision's extensibility is a great feature to implement and extend Vision to more custom displays. Sometimes though, we don't want all users to be using some custom symbols. If there is a per symbol security for custom symbols in built instead of manual override in code will be great. Kenji has already done the majority of the work : https://pisquare.osisoft.com/community/developers-club/pi-visualization-development/blog/2016/07/21/how-to-customize-appearance-of-pi-coresight-2016#comment-9600.

  7. PIVision: Long/Lat control to drag Long/Lat attributes onto

    Ability to click on a long/lat attribution your display and it opens up google maps and shows you how to get to your troubled asset. Might end up being a new control that you can place on the desktop and drag the long/lat attribute(s) on to it.

  8. Increase Width of Asset Swap Drop Down Menu

    As an end user, I would like to be able to see the full name of all of my assets when doing an asset swap so that I can see the asset that I'm swapping to. My assets have long names and, consequently, I need to highlight over each individual asset to see its full name. This is not efficient and is making it difficult for me to use the product easily.

  10. A compose mode, as well as a published mode for the CoreSight UI environment

    The current CoreSight mix composition and use of dashboards. Consequently, features, such as the AF tree is only available for compose actions, whereas it could have doubled as display navigation feature, where there a published mode for the displays.

    Also, switching a display to other instances of the underlying AF template prompt for Save, as if the display was in compose mode.

    WordPress is a good analogy: It has a powerful compose mode, in which web pages can be edited in many ways. Published web pages can be browsed as usual with web browsers.

  13. Search engine

    The search engine in PI Coresight is (to put it politely) very, very poor. put simply, the word search just does not work.

  14. Support Installation on Windows Nano Server

    Support installation on Windows Nano Server.  Nano Server is the latest OS that is optimized around private clouds and data centers. 

    It has a much smaller footprint from Windows Server Core and is "headless" which means that there is no GUI or local login capability.

  16. Have ProcessBook and Coresight exhibit same behavior for imported ProcessBook Displays

    In an imported ProcessBook display, I would like to see the same behavior in Coresight and in ProcessBook regarding changing the time context. In short, we want the value displayed to be based on the End Time of the display. We see this in ProcessBook, but not in Coresight.

    Let’s say we have a ProcessBook PDI file that has a trend with a default span of 7 days. This PDI is viewed both in ProcessBook and via Coresight.
     
    On that trend we have pi tags that are getting updated frequently. Above the trend we text that displays the address…

  19. Manual data entry to a PI Tag with validation for future data

    Manual data entry to a PI Tag with validation for future data. We want to implement a 'No Touch' policy for a start/end time (duration) where power plants cannot go for maintenance due to peak load requirements. While Excel and Manual Data Logger, SMT/AF comes to mind, it would be great if Coresight becomes the source for the data entry. More clean, validation (ensure end data is in the future) and one URL instead of multiple files floating around for a team authorized to enter this data.

  20. Allow Asset swap in kiosk mode

    In kiosk mode, the asset list swap drop-down menu disappears. There is a desired functionality to have the asset swap still visible and usable in kiosk mode.
