  1. Search Graphics Library

    Be able to search the graphics library by keywords rather than having to try to guess which of the many folders a certain graphic is in.

  2. Have dynamic links that are AF attributes redirect the current display instead of opening new tab

    Currently, a "dynamic" links on PI Vision displays are Asset Framework attributes using StringBuilder that are displayed using a value symbol. When the symbol is clicked, a new tab is opened.

    Having the display redirect in the same tab would be more ideal.

  3. Dynamic Hyperlink - In PI Vision, when adding a navigation link, configure the hyperlink address based on an Attribute Value from the target

    TR2.a Dynamic Hyperlink

    In PI Vision, when adding a navigation link, configure the hyperlink address based on an Attribute Value from the target element.

    TR2.b Collection of Dynamic Hyperlinks

    Given a target AF Element, generate a collection of dynamic hyperlinks in PI Vision. The dynamic hyperlinks shall be generated based on children elements of the target for given criteria (i.e. element template or element category). Each dynamic hyperlink address shall be configured based on the value of a specific AF Attribute value. This attribute shall be the same for all the generated hyperlinks. (for more information on Dynamic Hyperlink, see…

  4. Additional options for the timebar time-range : "calender week", "calender month", "manual entry",...

    I would like to have more options in the PI-Vision timebar for the time range (see attached screenshot). The possibility of a manual time range entry would be greate. And additional options like "calendar week", "calendar month" and "calendar year" would be a great feature. So it would be possible e.g. to switch exactly from one calendar month to the next independent of how many days the months have.

  5. Ability to change the configuration of the Asset drop-down using a URL parameter

    I would like to be able to change the Asset drop-down from a navigation link in a PI Vision display ( in other words to change the configuration of the Context Switching for a display) so that I can reuse an existing display and point it to different search roots with a different asset drop-down.

  6. Navigate to parent of selected element

    In a collection you can use 'Set asset context' to open a new display and show data regarding the selected child element.
    But when you want to use a link\button to navigate back to the previous display you cannot use this functionality. Because it will use in the current (the child) element instead of the parent. When you don't use 'Set asset context' it will open the correct display, but the selected element will be the one used when the display is last saved.

    Notes:
    - The option to open displays in a new tab of the browser is not…

  7. Navigation: Alternate display name for element

    Please allow for having an Attribute tagged as a Display Name for the entire element that would be shown in dialogs like the Switch Asset instead of the Element Name.

    It is reasonable if this had to be indexed to be usable.

    We are aware of the tooltip which helps but its only sometimes useful and does not seem to be sorted alphabetically when the names are identical.

    We have identical element names at the lowest element level with the parent path having more unique name (this is to support creating processbook displays from the parent and being able to…

  8. Rearrange PI Vision Folders

    Currently, you cannot rearrange PI Vision Folders. Adding the ability to drag and drop folders to restructure the hierarchy would be much more efficient than having to create a new structure and then move all displays into new folders.

  10. PI Vision 12hr interval time range

    PI Vision default search time range, that are available (1h, 8h, 1d, 1w, 1mon) do not offer a 12 hour search option. As this is mining standard shift length, it would be very convenient and helpful to have the 12h time range option as default.

  11. Click and Drag to Pan the PI Vision main application window

    For large dashboards, users often want to zoom into particular sections and then have the ability to easily pan up/down/left/right. Request is for the ability to click/drag to "grab" the display to pan in any direction (similar to what was available in Processbook, or Adobe PDF files).

    You can currently go up/down with the mouse wheel. Perhaps if you just enable the keyboard arrows to do panning?

  12. Add display pane to navigate through available displays

    Add a navigation pane to the display (similar to Assets, Events, and Graphics Library) for Display Navigation, to allow users to easily navigate to a different display.

  13. PI trends precision to be dynamic with the timeframe

    When displaying a year of data from a PI point that logs data every 5 seconds, PI Visions reads all 6 million points and displays them even if it's not useful to have that precision considering that on a year trend, we won't see much of the seconds changes.
    PI Vision should retrieve the PI tags in a "smart" way depending on the timeframe to be able to be more responsive and much faster! This will allow us to display 10 pi tags in the same trend over 2 years without the performance issues we have today.
    Thanks

  14. Lock symbols to specific AF Elem rootpaths to enable multiple contexts on one single display

    Currently you can set a Navigation Link setting the "current asset as root", where a certain AF Element (process line) is used to provide AF context for all symbols on the display.

    But I might need to see on the same display information from equipment's of different nature (and Elem Templates) and of course rootpath.

    The idea here is to be able to create Navigation links that will feed context to different collections of symbols on the same display rather than having to create different displays per type of equipment. Basically I want to be able to manage different contexts…

  15. The option to shift the time context by a specified amount instead of just the time displayed

    Currently when pressing the left and right arrows in the time bar there is only the option of shifting to the immediately preceding or next interval specified by the duration in the time bar. Users would like to be able to maintain the interval length but have the option to specify how far to shift.

    For example, if a user is currently viewing a display over a time range from 8AM to 4PM of the current day, 8h specified in the time bar, then they would like to be able to press the left arrow and shift back 24 hours…

  16. Support Link to ServiceNow in PI Vision Header

    In PI Vision 2019 we added a link in the header. This allows our customers to report any issues with a display through our ServiceNow ticketing system. With the PI Vision 2019 SP1 this option has disappeared. Instead of adding the link to each display, we could have one link at the top making it simple.

  17. Increase Width of Asset Swap Drop Down Menu

    As an end user, I would like to be able to see the full name of all of my assets when doing an asset swap so that I can see the asset that I'm swapping to. My assets have long names and, consequently, I need to highlight over each individual asset to see its full name. This is not efficient and is making it difficult for me to use the product easily.

  18. Display Navigation Link Box

    It would be useful to have the option to create a scrollable menu within displays that can be used to add navigation links. Many users of PI Vision utilize Navigation Links, but these require an association with a distinct object in the display. In situations where many navigation links are desired, a wall of text boxes is not visually appealing and it would be helpful if these text boxes could be grouped together into a scrollable item in the display (similar to data collections that exceed the symbol area).

  19. PI Vision has no hierarchy widget so representing AF hierarchy is very difficult

    PI Vision should have a hierarchical widget like many other products that would allow you to display AF hierarchy or load a hierarchy from XML.
    Displaying a tree in a table is a tedious and visually unappealing option for users.

  20. Configure link opening preferences per user

    As a user, I would like to be able to choose whether the links I click in PI Vision displays open in the same tab or in a new tab/page. Currently, the link opening preferences are set on the display level.
