  2. Ability to disable Calculations feature

    In some situations, PI Vision administrators may wish to globally disable the Calculations feature, or selectively limit who may use it.

    • Backwards compatibility with PI ProcessBook Data Sets is not needed
    • Policy requires exclusive use of Asset Analytics
    • Concerns of increased load on the PI Server due to lack of restrictions on Calculation creation
    • Etc.

    PI Vision should offer the ability to limit the use of Calculations throughout the system, or to only a select group of trusted users.

  3. Add in the display report the number of ad-hoc calculations found per display

    We need to track which PI Vision displays are using ad-hoc calculations so we can monitor how they are impacting the PI Data Archive.

    Best would be to limit this usage (https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/320517-pi-vision/suggestions/42635995-ability-to-disable-calculations-feature) but using the report feature could also be a viable solution and enable us to really go to the 2020 version and further releases.

    Now we stay on 2019 versions just because we cannot control the ad-hoc calculation usage by end-users.

  5. Allow multiple trace types on a single trend.

    It would be very useful to be able to configure the trace type for each tag on a single trend. For example have one tag show only markers but a second one show only the line.

    This is currently available in PI Vision 2020. You can see it in the Trace Options section of the Trend configuration. The “Style” and “Marker” options can be set for each individual trace.

  6. Allow installer to (optionally) bypass Certificate checks

    In nearly all installations in the last three years we have restrictions on the servers where we need to install the SSL certificates, that make it impossible to verify the validity (e.g. no access to revocation servers).
    The certificate is accepted by clients as those have different authorisations.

    I would like to optionally bypass the certificate checks in the PI Web API Configuration utility to allow using certificates that cannot be validated. This will save a lot of time to bypass the utility and manually remove and bind a certificate.

    This enhancement request was included in PI Vision 2020. On a clean install, the setup kit will create a self-signed certificate, and apply it to the target IIS web site where PI Vision is being installed. On upgrade, where the previous version already had a certificate set for the PI Vision site, that certificate is used for the new version’s PI Vision web site.

  7. multistate color

    Multistate: Change text color

  9. Option to set variable trend display times for different trends on a single display page

    I need to be able to see a summary page with various trends, however some of them I would like to see at different trend durations. For example, I would like to see most trends at a one month interval. However, for another trend where the data is only taken monthly I need to see it on a yearly interval to see a trend. Or for another trend that I care about long term process creep I would like to see at 90 days.

    PI Vision 2020, released in Q4 2020, allows you have trends in one display with multiple time contexts. So you can have one trend that shows a one month duration while another trend shows a one year duration.

  10. Improve display loading performance

    Large displays can take 30 seconds or longer to load. Load times are particularly slow in Internet Explorer. Displays needs to load faster.

  11. Use the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable

    The PI Vision install kit currently includes the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2015, 2017, and 2019. There is a version available that combines these versions (https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads). Please include this version with the PI Vision install kit instead. This should make the PI Vision install kit a bit smaller and shrink the list of included programs.

    Of course, if the dependence on the 2015 and/or the 2017 version is eliminated, then it would be better to not implement this suggestion.

  12. 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.

  13. 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. : (

    The Training Videos are available in PI Vision by clicking the “?” in the top right of the PI Vision application and selecting “Training Videos”. This will direct you to the PI Vision YouTube playlist.

  14. 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.

    PI Vision 2021 introduces the functionality for the Events Table to display events associated with assets within a collection and dynamic search criteria.

    See an overview of new PI Vision 2021 capabilities on our YouTube learning channel: https://youtu.be/LomuqXKEH7w

  15. 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.

  18. PI Vision Edge Chromium browser compatibility

    As we're going to use Chromium browser as enterprise standard, it would be great if Chromium was officially compatible with PI Vision (case number 00643921).

    PI Vision 2019 Patch 1 was tested with and is officially compatible with the new version of Microsoft Edge that is based on Chromium. For additional information on supported browsers please refer to the PI Vision Release Notes.

  19. Add element name and description to display

    We should be able to add element's name and description to symbols, without the need to create another attribute for that. So we could easily have element relative titles and labels...

  20. Trend Data Filtering

    Ability to filter out data on trends when a condition is true.

    For example: remote all data on a trend when the status is 'Not Running' or 'Capacity' is below 50%.

    Data would be hidden on the trends (gaps), optional way to collapse the false time periods as well.
