  1. Trend line Colors

    Trend lines colors should always stay the same. In other words if point 1 is deleted from a trend the point that becomes point 1 should assume the color assigned to point 1. This would be consistent with Processbook

  2. When building a trend in PI ProcessBook could a copy of multiple cells in Excel with tag names be pasted into the "Tags in Plot:"

    When building a trend in PI ProcessBook could a copy of multiple cells in Excel with tag names be pasted into the "Tags in Plot:". Currently a paste of such a copy results in only the first cell contents in the tags list. It would be great to copy multiple tag names and paste into the "Tags in Plot:" and get all of the tags added to the trend.

    After 25 years, OSIsoft is retiring PI ProcessBook using a phased approach over several years. PI ProcessBook was the leading face of PI System for many years, paving the way for self-service visualization. Since then, technology and your expectations around mobility, scalability, and collaboration have evolved beyond what PI ProcessBook can deliver. OSIsoft has been actively developing and investing in PI Vision to provide you that next-generation, modern visualization experience.

    For additional information regarding the retirement of PI ProcessBook, please see https://customers.osisoft.com/s/knowledgearticle?knowledgeArticleUrl=000031882.

  3. Allow Recrawling Indexed Search Databases Directly from PI Vision

    As a PI Vision user, I would like PI Vision to have the ability to initiate a PI Web API Indexed Search database recrawl from the PI Vision web application itself, instead of requiring an administrator to navigate to the Indexed Search Admin page to do this. This would allow users to make newly created assets appear in the search results on demand. This ability could be limited to a specific set of privileged users.

  5. Have Digital Signatures for PI ProcessBook VBA

    Have "Digital Signatures" option enabled in PI ProcessBook in order to make macros more secure.

  6. Create PI ProcessBook Support Tool add-in to replace data sets in PB displays with other data references before migrating to PI Vision

    As described in PI System Analytics: Which tool is best for the job? (https://customers.osisoft.com/s/knowledgearticle?knowledgeArticleUrl=KB00868), OSIsoft recommends using asset analytics instead of PI Calculation data sets to create calculations that are available across the PI System and perform at scale.

    To ease the migration from PI ProcessBook to PI Vision, it would be helpful if OSIsoft created a PI ProcessBook Support Tool add-in to replace data sets in PB displays with other data references, such as PI tags. Once a customer has created analyses to replace PB calculation data sets, such an add-in would allow them to update existing…

  8. Bar graph of power flow into directional arrows

    Instead of just an arrow showing flow. How about a green arrow that fills up with a red color as loading goes up. That way you can quickly see how close you are to your line or path limits.

  9. Help visualizing data in trend cursor if they are spikes surrounded by null values

    If a trend contains values (digital or numerical) that are surrounded by NULL values (empty) these would appear as spikes in a trend. If I want to pull a cursor to inspect this spike, it's difficult to center it where the value is... hence, facilitating the user to put the cursor on the value to display it would be a good feature. This is for Gestamp.

  10. Possibility to view subsecond timestamp in trend cursor, even when display time span is bigger than 5 seconds

    Currently, the cursor reports the subsecond timestamp only if the display context is 5s. Why? Can't it just be always reporting subsecond timestamp? Could it be an option?

  11. Multistate: Ability to control symbol rotation based of the data value

    Based on the value of the tag, add capability to also define the angle at which the symbol should rotate. This would come very handy while indicating wind directions, drop/rise in value etc.

  12. Make Element and Category Drag and Drop Consistent for Child Attributes

    Comparing three of the available methods for dragging and dropping multiple attributes onto the display for table or trend symbol shows inconsistency in how child attributes are handled.
    1. Dragging and dropping the element name brings all root and child attributes into the symbol.
    2. Dragging and dropping an attribute category name brings only the root level attributes.
    3. Drilling into a root level attribute to display its children and then dragging and dropping the root level attribute name will only bring this attribute but not its children.
    The behavior should be consistent. I this case, the user would prefer…

  13. Copied text box keeps moving up and down if we try to change the text in it

    Once a text box is copied and pasted and the user tries to edit/change the text in it, the text box jumps across the display as the user is typing. The user then has to manually drag it back to the desired location. Not sure if this was only with the specific customer I was assisting or if the issue is more widespread.

  14. Copied text box doesn't paste in the location that is clicked before the paste, but instead is pasted right next to the original text box

    Copied text box doesn't paste in the desired location that is clicked before the paste occurs, but instead is pasted right next to the original text box. The customer then has to drag it across the display instead.

  15. AF Templates with no data or pi tag not found

    We have an AF structure that uses templates for a few device types. Our templates are setup to resolve PI tags for the device if we have them available. If we don't, it says PI Tag Not Found - which is fine. Once the device is added in the field (out of the office), that AF element will update and work.

    When in PI Vision, the user gets thousands of errors saying the PI tag is not found. I would like an option in PSE to set the element attribute to ignore the error if the tag is not found,…

  16. Need for Asset Type and Asset Category in Edit Collection Criteria to rely on one another

    When using Edit Collection Criteria we would like for the Asset Category to rely on the Asset Type and Vice Versa. For example, when selecting an Asset Type only the Categories that are apart of that Asset Type would be displayed.

  17. Allow to move a tag or an AF attribute from one symbol to another

    This feature was existing in PI Coresight.
    For exemple, Taking a value displayed on a trend, drag and drop it to an other symbol (ie. a table) to change the way it is represented

  19. allow digital state to store a number

    Our system PMD Honeywell is a bit random for digital values. A digital value can be 0 or 1 but can also be 254 or 255.
    I want to do time weighted average for the digitals so I need the value to be a number. If I specify that the digital is digital then I can convert the 254 and 255 to 0 and 1 but that is stored as text not a number so the time weighted average does not work. If I specify it as a float 32 then I can adjust the calculation by subtracting 254 if…
