    Provide ability to have a default value for any tag, even digital state tags. For example, if the Digital state options are OK or NOT OK for an asset. Always prefill the tour with OK.

    Thank you very much for sharing your feedback. After evaluating it further, we have decided to decline this item, due to other high priority engineering needs across the PI System. Thank you for your feedback, and know that we are listening and reviewing every item that gets submitted!

  2. Allow grouping of trend scale in PI Vision

    In PI Vision (and ProcessBook if changes are still in the works) allow grouping of y-axis scales. i.e. In a 5-pen trend, two are on “Scale 1” and three are in “Scale 2”. Makes for less y-axis space required.

  3. Add ability to sort attributes by name in PI Vision

    When looking at Attributes, they are sorted by Category. With hundreds of attributes, sometimes it seems more convenient to find an attribute quick Alphabetically. Provide two checkboxes to the right of the ATTRIBUTES header. Alphabetical or Category.

  5. Improve the sharing display window


    • Increase the height of the window :
      The current version is very small and it is difficult to search among hunfdreds of identities the one you need in a list of 2cm height


    • Alllow to configure what info to display in the identifity list box :
      Actually, only the name of the identity is displayed. it is a technical identity name which means nothing to PI Vision users. Would it be possible to allow (by configuration of PI Vision) to display the description for example (or an other added field in the identities configuration)


    • Only display the identities which are…

    The list of AF identities box is not configurable, but we have added a filter box that allows you to easily search the list of available AF identities.

    Also, PI Vision allows you to share displays selectively with your user groups.

  6. Create folders by dragging a display on top of another display

    Add the ability to create folders by dragging and dropping displays on top of one another. Think of creating folders in iOS. R/O access should be set from the root folder.

  7. A “Popular Displays” section

    Where users select “All Displays”, “Favorites”, etc, add a list item for “Popular Displays“. Whereas the parameters for what is considered “popular“ can be configured. Users should only be able to see Displays that they have access to.

  8. Visually link items

    I would like to easily draw a broken arrow linking 2 graphical elements, so that they are visually linked together. This way, I could describe the flow of a process and, if I move a graphical element, I won't have to edit the complex set of lines I drew between them.

  9. PI Vision should prevent users from trending string tags

    Customer Jeff Huo:

    PI Vision should prevent users from trending string tags, especially if the user is not PI admin and have limited knowledge about different Point Type.

  15. 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…

  18. "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
