  1. Symbols with Different Timestamps

    The ability to create PI Vision displays with symbols (value, gauge, table) that display data at different timestamps or over different time ranges.

  2. Match Trace Colors Between the Display and Ad Hoc

    In the PI Vision ad hoc workspace, the colors of the traces in the ad hoc trends should match the colors that they were in the display they came from, instead of being randomly assigned a new color when they are added.

    In PI Vision 2019, if a trend symbol is added to an empty ad hoc workspace, the trace colors used in the workspace will be the same colors that were defined in the trend. If there are already data items in the workspace, the colors will be assigned in a specific order so that there are no duplicates.

    When data from any other symbol is added to the workspace, the data items will always get assigned a color in a specific order.

    Please let us know if this is the behavior you are looking for or if you are looking for colors to be preserved in other cases.

  3. An API to Build Displays Programmatically

    Would like an API to programmatically create PI Vision displays.

  4. Better handle incompatible data type event in PI Vision trend

    Scenario: Your company has a PI tag set up as string that primarily gets float values. It is a string because it sometimes contains messages explaining why a result was not obtained.

    The tag is set up as a double attribute in AF and plotted in Vision. This works fine unless a non-numeric value is encountered within the Time Range you are looking at. If this happens, the trend is blank and No Data is displayed.

    While PI annotations would have been a good use in this situation, it is difficult to go back and change this when you have…

  5. multiple ways to show values

    Hi - there should be a possibility to add multiple thresholds to the trends, to compare and easier display high and low values. Also it would be great if the lines could change from vertical to horizontal to show the range.

  6. Preserve display links across different batches of migrated displays

    Currently display links are only preserved when linked PI ProcessBook displays are migrated together. Navigation links should be preserved across different batches of displays that are migrated.

  7. Custom scale graduations

    On radial gauges, you should be able to specify your own graduations on the scale, rather than it automatically putting in its own. I find it sometimes puts graduations which are half numbers, i then have to turn the scales off.

  8. Create AF analytics from PI Vision

    Allow users to define calculations in PI Vision that can be "promoted" to AF analytics.

  9. Improve Event Frame Search

    User interface to search/utilize Event Frames is not intuitive. Select template, category is not easy to work with. BatchView search had a better look and feel, was simpler to use

  10. Add Processbook Electric T&D Symbol to PI Vision

    PI vision currently does not have the Electric T&D symbols library that is included in Processbook. In the next release of PI Vision we would like to see these symbols available in processbook. Using the PI ProcessBook Migration Tool (PI Vision 2019) is not a viable workaround to use these symbols.

  11. Bar graph of power flow into directional arrows

    Instead of just an arrow showing flow. How about a green arrow that fills up with a red color as loading goes up. That way you can quickly see how close you are to your line or path limits.

  12. Have displays automatically inherit folder permissions

    As a PI Vision admin, I would like displays to automatically inherit the permissions of their parent folder so that permissions are set automatically when users save displays to the appropriate folder.

    Currently permissions for folders and displays are not tied together but they can be propagated manually using the 'Propagate permissions' checkbox in the Folder Settings dialog.

  13. Allow sharing a display with edit permission

    As a display creator, I want to give other users edit permission on the display so we can collaborate in creating the display and so that other users from my team can make needed changes when I'm not available.

  14. Add the Event Details Hyperlink to the EventFrame Table.

    It would be great if the Event Details Hyperlink for an Event Frame be included in the Event Frames Table so it is available when running reports (e.g. SRSS).

  15. Multistate: Ability to control symbol rotation based of the data value

    Based on the value of the tag, add capability to also define the angle at which the symbol should rotate. This would come very handy while indicating wind directions, drop/rise in value etc.

  16. Bad value indicator

    Have a bad value indicator on value symbols - A triangular indicator specially in the value symbol which would indicate an exclamation mark when the quality of the data value is bad.

  17. Option to disable trend cursor sync

    Not all users like synchronized trend cursors, some find it very distracting. There should be an option to disable this functionality.

  19. Allow PI Vision's Event Frame Search to work with collections and dynamic search criteria

    I want to see if there is event frames for each attribute in a PI Vision collection. However as soon i am converting a single object to a collection it doesn't list any event frames.

    I have been told this has been designed to work like that, but this functionality would be very useful for us.

  20. Events table: search for event frames by asset root path (including all descendants)

    It would be useful to be able to configure the events table symbol in PI Vision to search for all event frames that reference elements below a certain root. This would allow you to see all EFs related to a certain branch of your AF hierarchy very quickly.
