  1. Offline Display Management: Allow PI Vision displays to be imported and exported

    There is a need to be able to export and import PI Vision displays so that displays can be managed offline. This would allow transferring displays between systems that are not connected, taking backups of displays, versioning displays, sharing displays with customers, vendors, and third-parties, etc.

  3. Increase the update rate of data in PI Vision displays

    As a PI Vision user I would like to be able to increase the update rate of PI Vision displays to less than 5 seconds and even sub-seconds so I can use it for trending.

  4. Allow display sharing to any AF identity for Administrators

    Currently limited to AF identities that my useraccount is explicitly part of. However, any Coresight admin should be allowed to share displays to any AF identity.

    Now as an Admin, i need to reassign display ownership to a specific person in a group (AF identity) and ask them to share the display. Not ideal for central authoring of displays.

  8. MultiState symbol with limit traits should show both the trait name and attribute name if they differ.

    When user have renamed the limit trait attribute name (for example HiHi ->Critial Temperature) and uses the trait within a multistate symbol the trait name rather then the trait attribute name shows up for the mutlistate configuration, either both should show or allow for the user to chose which to see (or see by default). The limit trait attribute names does show within Coresight AF hierarchy, there should be an explicit relationship displayed associating the multistate intervals and the trait attribute names.

    This behavior has been changed so that the attribute name is now what is shown in the configuration pane and the corresponding limit trait name is now shown in the tooltip if you hover over the attribute name that is shown.

  9. Decimals Multi-State

    Multi-State should allow decimal numbers in the limits.

  10. 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.

    Multistate Attribute acts from PI Points only, add static Attribute that are based from Analysis and Formulas

    This is possible with the use of notifications and the ability to have PI Vision screenshots in the notifications email. You can configure your notification based on your shifts and have a scheduled email with a PI Vision display screenshot.

  15. Add the value description when selecting a certain point on a graph and not just have a color coordinated box around the value

    Display item description next to value when selecting a certain time on a graph. Even though the box around the value is color coordinated with the item description, it is difficult to distinguish some colors

  16. Option to set variable trend display times for different trends on a single display page

    I need to be able to see a summary page with various trends, however some of them I would like to see at different trend durations. For example, I would like to see most trends at a one month interval. However, for another trend where the data is only taken monthly I need to see it on a yearly interval to see a trend. Or for another trend that I care about long term process creep I would like to see at 90 days.

    PI Vision 2020, released in Q4 2020, allows you have trends in one display with multiple time contexts. So you can have one trend that shows a one month duration while another trend shows a one year duration.

  17. Not all publishers get folder modification access

    Although user is set up as publisher, does not get the ability to modify folders or move graphics to folders. Only the "Administrator" named user gets this capability.

    In order to modify folders or move displays to folders a user must have write access to that folder. It is only the root level (under Home) that can only be controlled by PI Vision administrators. Once an Admin creates root folders, they can assign write access to the appropriate AF identities and then the members of those identities will be able to modify the folders.

    Here’s some more information on folder permissions in case it is helpful: https://livelibrary.osisoft.com/LiveLibrary/content/en/vision-v2/GUID-947EDD0E-DC0B-40AC-A0C5-3E554E27E445

    This functionality is currently available in PI Vision trends. You are able to right click on the data item in the trend legend and hide the trace. If your trend is set to a non-custom scale range, the scale range will auto-update when traces are added/removed.

  19. 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.

  20. Streamline Hyperlink Usage

    When accessing selecting a hyperlink from a chart, and the destination is another display (display X), selecting the hyperlink again should route you to the same page or tab, not open an additional tab of the exact same data.

    When configuring a symbol to have a navigation link, you have the option to open the link in a new tab or open in the existing tab.

    If this does not meet your request, please provide additional details.
