  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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).

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Detailed Display Statistics

    Provide detailed display statistics so that displays can display content can be analyzed. For example, this information can be used to evaluate display quality.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  14. Migrate data sets from PI ProcessBook displays to PI Vision

    Most of displays that we use have datasets, it is important to migrate these as displays are migrated to native PI Vision displays.

  15. Make Element and Category Drag and Drop Consistent for Child Attributes

    Comparing three of the available methods for dragging and dropping multiple attributes onto the display for table or trend symbol shows inconsistency in how child attributes are handled.
    1. Dragging and dropping the element name brings all root and child attributes into the symbol.
    2. Dragging and dropping an attribute category name brings only the root level attributes.
    3. Drilling into a root level attribute to display its children and then dragging and dropping the root level attribute name will only bring this attribute but not its children.
    The behavior should be consistent. I this case, the user would prefer…

  17. Copied text box keeps moving up and down if we try to change the text in it

    Once a text box is copied and pasted and the user tries to edit/change the text in it, the text box jumps across the display as the user is typing. The user then has to manually drag it back to the desired location. Not sure if this was only with the specific customer I was assisting or if the issue is more widespread.

  18. Copied text box doesn't paste in the location that is clicked before the paste, but instead is pasted right next to the original text box

    Copied text box doesn't paste in the desired location that is clicked before the paste occurs, but instead is pasted right next to the original text box. The customer then has to drag it across the display instead.

  19. adjust font color for multiple text boxes simultaneously

    Customers are unable to select multiple text boxes at once and change/standardize their font color all together. They have to do it individually. There is an option to simultaneously change the font size but it would help if this could happen for font color too.

    Add a Parallel Coordinate Plot symbol that allows for analyzing many different variables at once to determine if any are drifting from their set point.
