  1. Asset Comparison Table: Add Child Attribute as Column

    Currently, this can be accomplished by organizing you AF structure with rows as element names (assets) and columns as attributes using an Asset Comparison Table. I would like to see OSI Take the next step to generalize the asset table to be able to use Attributes as rows and their child attributes as columns (where you can choose). However, it would be nice to be able to select any child attribute and display its value as a column within a table. This would make PI Vision Tables significantly more flexible.

  6. PI Manual Logger: Data Formatting on Trend

    Would like the ability to use the Pi Point data visual filtering abilities in Manual Logger as they are defined in the PI Archive. Such as "Display Digits" and the ability to show STEP graphs.

  7. Automatically adding Start Time and End Time to the PI Vision URL

    Allow adding the timestamp automatically into the PI Vision link. The scenario is if you open any PI vision page and zoom into the timeframe which you required then the timestamp range which zoomed in should be automatically added up in the PI Vision link instead of adding the start time and end time parameter in the PI Vision URL.
    This will help the process engineers to identify the issue at a particular point of time and send that link directly to others without any manual intervention.

  8. Store the logon ID (Windows AD Account) of the user running an ML Web tour in a PI Tag

    This enhancement request was previously tracked in Work Item 48156 "Need a way to log the user name automatically into PI with a tag"

    https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/Known-Issues/48156

    There should be an option in a tour configuration to capture the account of the person who fills in a tour on Manual Logger Web and automatically store that username in a PI Tag.

  9. PI Vision Displays Management Process

    Hi,
    We have noticed as PI Vision gets adopted, organization of displays and content is becoming more and more cumbersome.
    It has become obvious that PI Vision is easy enough for any average person to design good quality displays that could be considered as part of the company's knowledge retention strategy.
    Therefore, similar to the concept of crowed sourcing, our vision is to "crowed design" in which James Dryden described it best in a reply Group Ownership Of A Display - PI Vision 2017 .
    I can envision a system in which users save personal copies of "published" shared displays…

  10. Support for Active Directory groups in PI Manual Logger PC Client

    PI Manual Logger Web PC Client does not support AD groups currently. SQL Server and PI Identities that need to be setup support AD groups. The same AD groups should be used for Tour access so it is a cleaner way to manage routes (typically using IT Desk at companies) rather than manually adding and removing users on the PC Client.

  11. Layers

    "Layers". It would be great if attributes could be groupped and visualized in layers. The Vision Dashboards would allow to activate or deactivate the layers. An example of two layers could be process measurements and calculated values. With the layers concept, it would be possible to visualize both types of attributes together or only one of them at a time. This would enhance the visualization experience.

    I think autosaving the displays would be a good idea to add.

  13. Allow Tag Group Level Comment Tag to record all comments associated with tags in the same group

    In PI Manual Logger Web->Tag Group Configuration, a Comment Tag can be created.

    If, for example, comments were made for all of the tags in the same tag group, the user would like to see all of the comment strings in the same tag group level tag.

  14. 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.

    DECLINED  ·  Victor Zhang responded

    This would pose a significant security concern so I have to decline it. On the other hand, I’d like to know what you are trying to accomplish and how we can help. PI Vision 2017 R2 SP1 (the latest version) allows display authors to define text font size and color.

  16. Grouped Symbols: Change font size by adjusting the group size

    When we group objects together like Text, Value, Symbols, rectangle box, lines etc, there should be provision to automatically change the grouped symbols font sizes when we resize the group.

  17. Search suggestions, more keywords

    Please make the Search more user friendly and responsive. You shouldn't have to enter it exactly as it is in order for it to show up after searching. More keywords or add search suggestions.

  18. Improved filtering options in PI Vision Display Utility

    In addition to being able to filter and sort by display name and owner, several other fields might be considered as well. For example, date last accessed, date last modified, and date created. These fields would be useful to include in case a user wanted to manage/remove only displays that are no longer used. I'm certain there are plenty of other categories to include that would make Vision Display Utility even more robust and user-friendly, especially when making changes in bulk.

  19. Avoid Data Entry for Existing Event in PI Manual Logger

    Currently, PI Manual Logger can only determine the value and timestamp of a tag in the current tour run. There should be an option which checks the existing events in the data archive and only allow new data entry for a tag at a new timestamp. The previous recorded events should remain unchanged. In the current PIML setting, the new value will replace the previous value.

  20. Edit a Data Item by Typing or Pasting a Data Item Path

    In addition to the drag-drop option available for attributes, maybe having a textbox functionality that allows us to apply/change the name of the object’s attribute and thus changing the related attribute easily without having to search for it.
