  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Trend: colorize area below tag-line

    I have a tag (0/1) and want to colorize the area below the tag to increase the visibility of the status... (Optimum would be a changeable transparency to avoid the hiding of other tags/attributes)... is this possible?

  10. 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.

  11. Drop down for collections

    Have an option for collections to appear as a drop down list in the display. This would be beneficial for context switching in displays, so that the user could then select from a drop down on the display which element to view. Instead of having to scroll through a collection and double click the element.

  12. Out of spec (min/max) shows up as bad data

    Data that is outside of the range of the Min and Max set in AF show up as 'bad data' in a multi-state display. This means instead of the display on the screen flashing red they turn blank (how our multi-state is setup)

    I think this shouldn't behave this way. If my temperature drops below the min I want it to be shown out of spec, not bad.

    I also can't just change the min and max as it drives the scale on the gauges.

  16. 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.

    0 comments  ·  Ad Hoc Analysis  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    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.

    Would like an API to programmatically create PI Vision displays.

  18. 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…

  19. Symbol Properties: Set exact symbol size in pixels

    Ability to size symbols by pixels. In other words, we can manually define the size of the symbols by entering height/length and width properties.

  20. 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.
