  2. 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.

    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.

  3. Add search to ad hoc trend workspace

    Add search to ad hoc workspace so that attributes and tags can be added directly from search to the ad hoc trend.

    Allow direct access to the ad hoc workspace so that users investigating an issue don't have to open a display or create a new display to get there.

  5. "Related attributes" feature in PI Vision

    As a maintenance operator, I want the ability to select a symbol in PI Vision (symbol, image. e) and have a Related Attributes pane show other attributes that belong to the same element. This would allow me to quickly drag the attributes from that pane onto a trend and observe how my asset behaved over time

  6. Drag to manipulate trend scale values

    As a process engineer, I should be able to manipulate trend scales by dragging the top or bottom of the y axis so that I can align curves and similar patterns of data for comparison.

  7. Increase Number of Values that Can be Exported

    In PI Vision, only 3,600 values can be exported from a display as CSV and XML. It would be great to be able to increase this limit.

  8. Input box object on display for filtering collections and comparison tables

    An input box that can be added to displays that will allow the user to enter a value and filter one of the search properties in a certain collection or comparison table on the display. The relationship between the input box and the search property can be set in the search property of the collection or comparison table. This would allow the user to intuitively filter a collection or comparison table without needing to understand the AF structure or the collection and comparison table properties.

  10. Popup XY Plot

    Double-clicking on a XY Plot trend creates a time-series trend with all points instead of zooming-XY Plot. It should maximize the plot to create a full screen popup XY Plot instead.

  11. Trend Symbol - Easily find min/max for a given period of time on a trend

    It is hard currently to find the min/max value of a trend symbol currently. If a user clicks on a point, they may select a value slightly off the min or max.

    Allowing keyboard left and right arrows after selecting a point on a trend would solve this

    Or hovering/changing the time range of trend would show a min/max legend

  12. Multiple asset swapping on a display

    Possibly asset swapping being applied to the last symbol selected (or multiple symbols selected that share a template).

  14. Open Ad Hoc Trends with Single-Clicks

    It takes a double-click to open an ad hoc trend in native PI Vision displays, while only a single-click in uploaded PI ProcessBook displays. Single-clicks are more convenient to users on mobile devices.

  15. Synchronize times on symbols, or not, with one step

    When analyzing an issue, it is helpful to be quickly determine whether all the symbols on a display are using the same time range or not.  For example, one might want to compare values from upstream in the process to values farther downstream and there would be a time offset involved, but one might be comparing similar variables for the same time range, doing a side by side comparison and then the time should be the same for both.

  16. Export data in kiosk mode

    A display that is in kiosk mode no longer has the option to export data to an XML file. Adding this feature would be useful whenever the vision display is embedded in another website.

  18. PIVision: Long/Lat control to drag Long/Lat attributes onto

    Ability to click on a long/lat attribution your display and it opens up google maps and shows you how to get to your troubled asset. Might end up being a new control that you can place on the desktop and drag the long/lat attribute(s) on to it.

  19. URL Parameters for Ad Hoc Trend properties

    Configure properties of Ad Hoc trends using URL parameters. For example, add "&backgroundcolor=white" or "&multiplescales" and other parameters to set Trend properties that are otherwise only set by selecting "Format Trend".

  20. Visualize Questionable Flag

    The visualisation of the questionable flag on trends. We map ‘suspect’ SCADA quality to the questionable flag, and it is very useful visualising this on trends as it indicates an issue, and the data on the trend can be held in question
