  2. Alignment of values within an element

    Ability to left, centre and right align text so that when values change, they stay aligned with sibling elements. For instance, a value of 1,000psi going down to 0psi will align itself back to the left but it would be preferable to align to the right so that units line up.

    PI Vision 2017 R2 introduced the ability to horizontally align the text within value symbols (left, center or right)

  3. Small scroll increment of trend time in PI Vision

    Need to be able to make smaller than 1 interval change on time scroll.  Example: if displaying 1H of data, user can scroll 1H increments.  I would like to scroll in 1H increments or 15 minute increments.  this help navigating to right time period.

    Scrolling time in small increments can be done if you mouse over the bottom portion of a trend. When doing this, your mouse cursor will change to a hand that can be used to drag the time range forward or backwards in time in small increments. The increment is determined by how far you drag. This functionality was introduced in the 2016 version.

  4. multiscale: fix scale manually

    Hello,

    When I switch to "multiple scale" there is no possibility to add the values per scale manually!

    In PI Vision, it’s possible to adjust the scale minimum and maximum values whether you’re using single or multiple scales. When multiple scales are enabled, you can see a unique scale for each trace on the trend. You can manually adjust the scale for each trace in the “Trace Options” within the Trend Format configuration pane.

  5. PI Vision trend dynamic scales with attribute values

    PI Vision trend should have dynamic scales according with the attribute values (limits).

    This feature is available in PI Vision 2016 or later. It can be accomplished by leveraging dynamic AF attribute traits, which was introduced in PI Server 2016.

  6. Allow combining processbook and native PI Vision folders

    Allow combining ProcessBook folders and native Processbook folders (i.e procbook displays and native pi vision displays will reside in one folder); allow building hierarchies using both types of folders at the same time

    This is supported in PI Vision 2017 R2. Native PI Vision displays can be created in the same folder containing ProcessBook displays. Because the ProcessBook display folder structure is created and managed based on the Windows file system, ProcessBook displays cannot be moved within the PI Vision app, but PI Vision displays can be moved to ProcessBook folders from within the app.

  7. Allow a way to clean up the Display Management "To" list of users

    Customer has many more users appearing in the display management To list than the from list. He is wondering why being or having been a display owner at some is sufficient to remain in this list. Could there be a means to delete unneeded users from this "To" list?

    You can use “User Settings” on the admin portal to remove a user from the drop-down list by clearing its settings. Please check out the functionality and let us know what you think. Thank you for your feedback!

    The descriptions of AF attributes and PI Tags are searched when executing a search in PI Vision. To view the description of a search result, hover over the item and the description will be show in the tooltip. Showing the description of search item results in tooltips was added in the 2016 R2 version.

  10. Use AF attribute traits to set symbol scale or limits

    As a PI Vision user, I would like to have the option to set the scale or limits of any symbol based on the attribute traits defined in AF. When the symbol contains multiple attributes, it would be useful to be able to select only one attribute to define the scale of the symbol.

    PI Vision currently supports this functionality. When the ‘database’ option is selected for a symbol scale, if the attribute has Min and Max traits, the traits will automatically be used to define the scale on the PI Vision symbol.

  12. AF URL attribute object in PI Vision

    PI Vision should have a object that gives functionality to open URL´s from AF attributes.
    It is possibel to use URL´s in AF attributes, it is even possible to open them from system explorer.
    PI Vision should recon that it is a URL when you drag it into the design pane and automatically create a text object with the URL.

    The PI Vision 2017 R2 release included improvements to maintain synchronization between the asset dropdown menu and the display asset context.

  14. Hide timebar passing through hyperlinks

    We may want to hide the timebar for certain displays, but maintain it for others.  Currently, it seems like all hyperlinks pull in the URL modifiers from the source location.  So if I want, for example, a timebar on my second-level displays, I need to have it on my first-level displays.

    The ability to control whether URL parameters like hidetimebar are passed in a display link was implemented in the PI Vision 2017 R2 release.

  15. Multistate Configuration should show the values defined for the limits besides the traits (Maximum, HiHi, Hi, Lo, etc..).

    For multistate configuration with AF limits, the customer would like to see the values defined for the limits besides the traits (Maximum, HiHi, Hi, Lo, etc..).

    In previous versions the limit trait values were shown in the tooltip if you hovered over the name shown for the limit. In PI Vision 2017 R2 we changed this so that the value is shown in the configuration pane under the name of the limit attribute trait so that you do not need to hover to see these values.

  16. Trend: Shared dynamic scales

    For the Trend object I would like to select specific traces to share the same dynamic scale (range of plotted values) while other traces use independent scales. 

    Example:
    Depth - Independent scale
    Casing psi - share dynamic scale w/ Tubing psi
    Tubing psi - share dynamic scale w/ Casing psi
    Flow In Rate - share dynamic scale w/ Flow Out Rate
    Flow Out Rate - share dynamic scale w/ Flow In Rate
    Alarm Indicator - Independent scale

    This is achievable in PI Vision 2016 or later. When the ‘database’ option is selected for a trace’s scale range, if the attribute has Min and Max traits, the traits will automatically be used to define the scale of the trace. The traits can be dynamic. So if 2 traces are to share the same dynamic scale, simply reference their traits to one another. This feature requires PI (AF) Server 2016 or later.

  17. Fit All action should also be able to zoom in

    The current version does not zoom in on the Fit-All action, only zoom out. So it only scales down, but not up. The Fit All feature in PI ProcessBook is doing both zoom in and out.

    In PI Vision 2017 R2, the ‘Fit All’ behavior on displays was updated to enable zooming a display to fit the window.

  18. remove element relative from pi vision screens

    Is there any option from admin to disable the element relative display from PI Vision screens?
    We are facing issues even when we don’t change it or touch it. Sometimes it is changing automatically and without touching or selecting another element.
    We are building PI Vision screens that contains several elements like Boiler 1,2,3,4,… that are using element templates and we need to show different boilers in the same trend and page. it is changing automatically the Asset Boilers and we have to remap them in our displays and again it will change automatically for some reason.
    Is there any…

    Copying PI Vision symbols from one display to another is supported for displays on the same PI Vision server.

  20. Not equal option in Event Name

    I would like to have a not equal Event Name option in Event Frame search  in  PI Vision. Currently, we using  event  frame attribute value in the search but we also like to  use not equal to a event name with  wildcards as well.
