  1. Trend: Allow custom titles

    Allow specifying plot titles for trend symbols, similar to how ProcessBook allows specifying a plot name.

  2. Improved migration of arc symbol

    The arc symbol is migrated with the PI ProcessBook to PI Vision Migration Utility, however PI Vision does not support the same configuration options as PI ProcessBook, so in many cases arcs are not migrated well (PI Vision only supports 90 degree arcs). Improvements should be made so that arcs from PI ProcessBook can be migrated properly.

  3. Multistate: Provide a way to refresh digital state information

    Digital states used for multistates are currently stored with a display, so if they are modified PI Vision does not currently detect this change. PI Vision should provide a way to update multistates with the new modified digital states. This applies to enumeration sets in AF as well.

  4. 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.

  5. Multistate: Change text color

    In multistate, we are able to change background color.
    We would like to be able to change text (letters, words) colors for text and value symbols with multistate.

  6. Trend: Scatter plot - Switch off connecting lines

    In trends give the user the option of disabling the connecting lines so that markers representing only the archived or calculated values are shown as a scatter plot.

  7. Trend: Axis value scale on the outside of graph

    Y axis value scale should be on the outside of the graph/trend plot area and when this is done, show minor ticks when multiple scales are used. Axis values cannot be seen if they are covered by data.

  8. Trend: Edit trace name in legend or be able to add a description

    Edit the trace name or add a description in the legend of a trend in order to:

    1) Make clear the description of the Attribute in the trend
    2) Use an abbreviation for the attribute description in the trend legend
    3) Use a different language in the legend while respecting the attribute name (for example, an attribute name is written in English in PI System Explorer but we would like to see Italian in the Coresight trend)

  9. Vision's search limitation on Asterisks and Spaces

    Using multiple search phrases in Processbook or Datalink was simply separating items by an asterisk . . . "Phrase1Phrase2*"

    Since Vision has Asterisks unable to match space characters the above search will return no results where there are any spaces between the phrases. The equivalent search phrase now must be "Phrase1 Phrase2".

    This seems to be a step in the wrong direction on making searches more intuitive and easier, especially considering the YEARS of habit trained into people on proper search techniques within Processbook and Datalink. It also seems to be a very confusing state of…

  11. Trend: Vertical gridlines

    Plots such as the pad trends, could benefit from grid lines to help quantify the changes over time.  The horizontal axis has decent grid definition between the grey and the black, but the lack of vertical axis makes it hard to compare day to day comparisons.

  12. Multistate: Make visible/invisible based on data item value

    Change graphics based on a data item value. For example enhance the multistate functionality so that is it possible to make a symbol visible when a tag/attribute value is equal to 1 and invisible when equal to 0 (or another condition).

  13. Support multiple time ranges for trends on a display

    Have the ability to support multiple time ranges for trends on a display.  For example a trend might be configured as showing the last 8 hours, another one as the last 7 days, and another one the last month.

  15. Multistate: Symbol configuration drop area

    When configuring multistate symbol and a user is dragging a tag/attribute to the configuring window, I noticed that you cannot drop selected item to the bottom of the window. Must stay in the upper half. Not sure if this is a bug. But I think we should make it so that a user can drop an item anywhere in the configuration window.

  16. Search for Text at end of Data Item

    Currently when users type a search string, PI Coresight automatically appends a * wildcard character. So if a user searches for "state", it is the same as searching for "State".

    Users would like the ability to search for text at the end of the data item name, so that a search for "*State" would return "OutletState", but would not return "FanState1".

  17. Trend: Show Relative Time

    I want to show relative time on the trend so that I can view my data in reference to the start of Well Production.

    It is likely that Production time is configured as an Event (EF).
