  1. Alarms/Shutdowns

    Having the ability to view alarms/shutdowns and status' on the trends would be valuable in troubleshooting. For instance; currently you can see the unit shut down but do not know why.

  3. Default time range for Event Frame trend

    Set the default start time for all EF trends to be 5 minutes before the EF start time and make it configurable. Use case is attached.

    Root cause EF are of no value here unless the default view when you first view the event is the start time of the trend is the start time of the root cause EF. In that case, the root cause EF overrides the default start time offset mentioned above. Also format it so the user can see the start of the event on the trend.

    Sometimes, an EF triggers when a condition has been…

  4. Add "Can be acknowledge" filter in PI Vision Event table

    In PI Vision it is not possible to get rid of not acknowledgable event il the table filter appearing on the configure table on the right of the display while it is possible to do in manually on the table.
    Add that feature will enable to get a display for real time alarming with only not acknowledge event appearing.
    Currently we have not acknowledgeable event appearing.

  6. Alignment of text in events table is inconsistent

    Alignment of text in events table is inconsistent. Event frame table always shows text centre aligned e.g. Name, start time,endtime etc and column names are always left aligned

  8. PIM batchview functionality in PI Vision PLEASE

    In event frame view, gives back those spectacles from PIM .. the ones where you can highlight all the batces in one go and then "show" or "hide" - just by clicking on the specs. You guys can come and see how we work with batch data if you like. Give us back all the previous functionality we had in PIM Batch view.

  10. Multistate behaviour for event table row background and text

    As now it is just event severity that gives different colours. It should be possible multistate the background color and text for events table rows to use the standard colours in a Alarm list as it is in the plant DCS Alarm list.
    Active alarms with red background, Not active and not acknowledged is yellow background. Critical events is blue. The rest is grey.
    This function should be possible to use with multistate and have the controlling attribute in the event frame.

  11. Allow text formatting and to left center text on events table

    As now the text is aligned in center! It does not look good!
    It should be possible to choose this for individual fields in the events table.

  12. Grouping and showing the event frame attribute

    RIght now I am not able to filter and group the attribute from event frame, I need to show on the trends and hide others. It would be nice if we can pick and sort the attributed of event frames to be displayed on trend.

  13. 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.

  14. Add functionality to send a Event frame to SAP PM or any other system

    I want to be able to send a event frame to other system. It would use a template that would be configurable. Just by pressing button in the event details pane.
    This function could be named "Actions"  and could be fully configurable to even create a list in PI Vision that would summarize what ever your need is.

  15. Be able to attach multiple files to an event frame

    As a PI Vision user I would like to be able to attach multiple event annotation files, so I no longer need to replace the existing one with the other file that I want to attach.

  16. Event Comparison - Link secondary reference elements to Attribute list and display

    Currently, the attribute window in the Event Comparison displays shows a link from the EF to the primary reference element, and then drill downs to attributes of that element.  Attributes selected through this window would dynamically link other EFs displayed in the trend to their respective reference element.

    We would like the attribute display to allow multiple reference elements to be accessible through the attribute window, not just the primary reference.

  17. Visual cue when event frames are available in the Events pane

    As a PI Vision user, I would like to see if Event Frames are available for my display without clicking on the Events tab. This feature would show me that older event frames can be observed in the events pane. This feature would be different than the blue circle that only shows up when new events appear.

    Alicia Coppock responded

    This functionality is still available in PI Vision however, the default behavior was changed in PI Vision 2017 R2. The automatic refresh of the events pane is now disabled by default for new PI Vision displays.

    To enable the automatic refresh of the events pane for a PI Vision display, you can check the “automatically refresh the list” option on the events pane. Saving the display after selecting this option will save this selection with the PI Vision display.

  18. Allow setting of server-level default for Event Frame search refreshes

    As a PI Vision admin, I would like to set a default for the automatic checks for Related Events. In PI Vision 2017 R2, the setting defaults to Off after an initial search. Although the setting is persisted for displays, it is inconvenient to have to toggle this setting on each newly created display. Since there are no performance issues with Event searches on my system, I want PI Vision to always check if there are Related Events.

  19. Stacked y-axis on Event Details trend

    As an engineer, I would like the ability to show the Event Details trend with a stacked y-axis to provide an alternative and clearer view of my data so that I can compare attributes during the event duration without the trend lines overlapping.

  20. Move forwards or backwards in time on the Event Details page

    As an engineer, I would like the ability to move the trend time range forwards and backwards in time on the Event Details page so I can investigate what happened before and after an event.
