  1. Mobile: Allow browsing display folders

    The mobile site is missing a home page or a way to browse display folders. Without this users get confused, it's not clear that you need to search to find displays.

  3. Data format of CSV exports

    Hi there,

    One thing that I've noticed about exporting data (as a .csv anyway) is that the time points are consistent across multiple tags, and on top of that they exported as one big column. Is there any way to standardize the time points across all the tags when exporting and have them be exported as individual columns?

    Thanks!

    If you have a chance, we’d like to learn more about the use case behind this request.

    By default, PI Vision will automatically pick up and use the time zone of the client machine a user is running their browser on, so all times should be displayed in a user’s local time zone.

    If this isn’t the behavior you are seeing, or if you have a use case where users need more control over the time zone being used to display data please let us know.

  6. Single Gauge with Multiple Values

    Configure gauges using multiple attribute values. As an example, if you have a tank that has 2 level sensors, it would be helpful to show both levels in 1 gauge. Currently we accomplish this by creating 2 gauges and putting 1 on top of the other, but having a single symbol with both would be more functional.

  7. Create PI ProcessBook Support Tool add-in to replace data sets in PB displays with other data references before migrating to PI Vision

    As described in PI System Analytics: Which tool is best for the job? (https://customers.osisoft.com/s/knowledgearticle?knowledgeArticleUrl=KB00868), OSIsoft recommends using asset analytics instead of PI Calculation data sets to create calculations that are available across the PI System and perform at scale.

    To ease the migration from PI ProcessBook to PI Vision, it would be helpful if OSIsoft created a PI ProcessBook Support Tool add-in to replace data sets in PB displays with other data references, such as PI tags. Once a customer has created analyses to replace PB calculation data sets, such an add-in would allow them to update existing…

  8. Hide scrollbars in Vision when all display symbols are visible.

    I have just recently started working with PI Vision. I have searched the Help documentation for any reference to the scroll bars that are always visible in the display window. I found no reference to the scroll bars. It seems reasonable that the scroll bars should automatically disappear if all symbols in the display are visible.

  9. Option to Disable Snapshot Values on Trends

    As a PI Vision end user, I would like an option to disable snapshot data on trend symbols. Currently, when a display's end time is set to "Now" and trends update in real-time, incoming snapshot values are cached and included as part of its traces whether those values are later compressed out or not.

    This can cause issues with connector data as PI Connectors do not support exception testing and often send very high frequency data. The resulting traces can become noisy to the point of uselessness even at fine-grained time ranges (ex: one minute).

    Ideally, trend symbols should have…

  12. Trend: Statistics between cursors

    When adding multiple cursors to a trend, have a way to show the statistics (delta/min/max/avg/duration) between the two cursors so that a user can easily understand what happens during the cursor times.

  13. Allow editing of Vision display start time and end time together..

    It would be great if Vision display start time and end time could be configured together. Whenever I change start/end time of a trend, PI Vision immediately requests for data from PIDA even though I haven't finished entering the start/end times.

    For example I have a trend with last 8 hours of data. Then I want to check data back in January 2010. When I enter 1-Jan-2010 into the start time field and click on end time field to set the end time of the trend to 1-feb-2010, PIVision already fires a query to PI Data Archive before I have…

  14. Have the entered data from PI Manual Logger Web be view-able from the PI Point trend and historical data table without refreshing.

    It is very important in the case of downtime to see the changes in Manual Logger Web immediately to ensure the downtime and run-time events are accurately measured. Therefore having the data not update immediately in the tag trend display in the manual logger web view or the historical data view is detrimental because it is difficult to know if the event was accurately entered.

  15. Display the value of the selected trend in bigger characters

    When analysing multiple trends, it would be useful to display the value of the selected trend in bigger characters in order to easily identify it.

  16. Setting up a time-frame & more

    Currently when we change the end-time, automatically the start time changes because the gap between the two times does not change. We would like the start time to stay the same, and the gap time to change. We lose a lot of time because we always need to re-write the start time when we change the end time.
    It would also be nice if we can write in the difference between the start and end time, for example, currently we can only chose between 1h,8h,1d,1w,1mo, it would be nice to decide exactly what we want and not only have 5…

  17. Add RootPath functionality to Event Frame Table

    I would like the ability to leverage the RootPath URL parameter to return all event frames tied to child elements of the selected asset. Currently, this seems to work only if the display is created against an asset with all of the same child element names as the context-switched element. I would like this to work for any set of child elements regardless of the child element names.

  19. PI Vision Page Authoring Tools Improvement

    I noticed quite a number of issues while attempting to author a new PI Vision Page. Here are a list of things that are lacking in PI Vision compared to PI ProcessBook and needs to be included into PI Vision as soon as possible:
    1. Unable to Copy and Paste the Format from one Graphic/ Object to other Graphics/ Objects
    2. Limited Color Options in Format Shape/ Text/ Background/ Display
    3. Unable to Resize Grouped Graphics/ Objects
    4. Unable to set up Layers
    5. Value Text does not reflect Multistate color settings, only the shades behind the Value Text reflect…

  20. Set symbol size independent of font size

    Currently, the font size is directly related to symbol size. This is problematic when migrating button symbols from PI ProcessBook to PI Vision, since they will not retain their width. This leads to manual work being required to adjust the display layout after displays are migrated.

    An alternative solution would be to add a button symbol to PI Vision that can be sized independently of the symbol's font size.
