  1. Event Frames Table & Features enhancements

    • The ability to view event frame attributes/annotations (or referenced element attributes) within the Events table in PI Vision
    • Select multiple events in the table and define a reason code and/or comment for all events selected
    • Input/View comments from the event table instead of having to open a new window in PI Vision for each event
    • Ability to use the event table with tablets/phones (Not sure if this is possible already? I tried on our system and was unsuccessful)
    • sort/filter based on the highest production targets which are event frame attributes
    Use Case:

  2. improve display of table lookups in pi vision

    Currently PI Vision suffers from serious performance problems when displaying more than a handful of table lookups on a single page. What is the point in having table lookups in AF if we can't effectively visualize them in PI Vision?

  3. Pin your time when navigating displays

    Provide an option to pin the current time you are looking at on 1 display, and carry that time forward to any other display that you end up navigating to.

    Useless for dashboards but very powerful for process control system graphic replicas.

  4. Vertical Gauges: Fix width of bar, independently of the displayed digits of the scale

    Currently the width of the vertical gauge is taken up by the bar + the scale.

    This has the effect that the width of the bar is dependent on the maximum number of digits of the scale. This creates problems when copying & pasting a gauge or using a vertical gauge in a collection if different values with different number of digits are displayed.

    It would be better if the width of the bar would be fixed when copied or used in a collection, and the scales would be added outside of that.

  5. Symbol Properties: Set exact symbol position in pixels

    As an addition to the feedback item "Symbol Properties: Set exact symbol size in pixels", it would be really useful to be able to set the exact position of symbols. This would make it a lot faster to line up symbols with each other.

    The option to align left/middle/right or distribute horizontally/vertically helps somewhat, but often fails to do exactly what is needed. Being able to directly enter the position would alleviate that problem and make authoring Displays a lot faster and less frustrating.

  6. Add option to select dynamic values in Advanced Asset Search Criteria in Events table

    Add option to select dynamic values (from attribute references) in Advanced Asset Search Criteria in Events table.
    Attribute1 = Attribute2, not just Attribute1 = value.

  8. Display propagation between environments in regards to hyperlinks

    We create PI Vision Displays in a Test environment, before Migrating them to Production. The Main display has many Hyperlinks to other Displays (and those Displays have Hyperlinks back to Main). When we propagate Displays from Test to Prod, all the links are broken and we spend quite a bit of time updating all of them. Is there a way to have the Hyperlink to another Display in the environment be independent of the Display number in the environment? Or is there a way to manually set Display's number? Related to that, is there a way to propagate a new…

  9. Training videos gone.

    Just a question? What happened to the training videos? I just started using this PI Vision yesterday as I was looking forward to learning via the videos. I am alone in extreme remote solar. : (

  10. Support for dragging a data item from search to a custom symbol's configuration pane

    As a developer of a PI Vision custom symbol, I want to add the ability for the user to drag an af attribute/pi tag into a field and then use the path of the attribute/tag to perform a web api call. I am looking for similar functionality to how the multi-state feature works.

  12. Automate copying displays from one server to another

    As a PI Vision admin, I need the ability to automate copying displays from one PI Vision server to another while changing data sources in the process.

    We have one master site where displays are created and edited and many other sites that are re-using these displays. In doing this, we can templatize displays and ensure that the content is presented in a consistent way.

    Minor changes are made every day so this process needs to be automated, and local PI Vision servers also have local displays so the content is not identical, meaning we cannot simply copy the backend…

  13. Asset comparison table - add navigation links for each row

    Customer would like to be able to clic over a row on the Asset comparison table, and dynamically update some objects on the dashboard, just like PI Webparts Tree View used to work.

  18. Add "Autorange" to graph scaling, just like in ProcessBook

  20. Couple/decouple a symbol's data reference with its multistate reference

    Provide a multistate toggle to synchronize a symbol's data reference with the multistate reference. When changes are made to the symbol's data item (e.g. display reuse) the multistate will reflect that change too.
