  1. Supply a "master asset" URL parameter

    This enhancement request is to be able to supply an AF asset path as a querystring parameter in a Coresight URL to allow that asset to be applied to the symbols on the display which share that asset's template.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 62283.

  3. Allow multiple trace types on a single trend.

    It would be very useful to be able to configure the trace type for each tag on a single trend. For example have one tag show only markers but a second one show only the line.

    This is currently available in PI Vision 2020. You can see it in the Trace Options section of the Trend configuration. The “Style” and “Marker” options can be set for each individual trace.

  4. 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.

  5. Removing Displays

    As an admin, I should be allowed to remove displays that other people created. I currently don't have that ability.

    If you are in the PI Vision Admins group, you will have permissions to delete any display. This can be done on the PI Vision home page by clicking on the gear icon to open the Display Settings dialog and choosing ‘Delete display’. If you’d like to delete displays in bulk, the PI Vision Display Utility can be used for this.

  6. Data set Export to Text File

    Add an export option to the new Migration tool to export an Datasets to a text file.

    The PI ProcessBook to PI Vision Migration Utility has an analysis report that has detailed information about each display that was analyzed, including information about data sets. This report can be filtered down to a list of data set equations contained in the analyzed displays.

  7. Curves added to ad hoc can be saved as a new display

  8. alias tag names

    Anywhere that you can show a tag name you should be able to show an alias instead. For instance, tables only allow you to show the tag name and not an alias.

    In PI Vision 2020, we added labeling options to add element name, attribute name, description, or custom text as labels for trend, value, vertical gauge, horizontal gauge, and radial gauge symbols.

    For more information, see the PI Vision 2020 release announcement here: https://customers.osisoft.com/s/knowledgearticle?knowledgeArticleUrl=000031641

    If this does not meet your needs, please respond on this feedback item so we can update the details.

  9. Trend and Event Frame superimpose

    Would be great to superimpose Event Frames within a trend: in the same symbol. Really interesting when analysing a process or when troubleshooting.

  11. 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

  12. Zooming in trend object should also zoom into the XY plot

    Zooming into the trend object doesn't zoom into the XY plot on the same display. I’ll click the left arrow then the right arrow in the time bar to overcome this.

    Zooming in on a trend updates the display time range, which in turn will update your XY plot.

    If this is not occurring in your display, please contact TechSupport for additional troubleshooting.

  13. Shape Fill continued

    When creating a shape in PI vision, you can set the "fill" to empty so as to see behind the shape you made. However, it would be nice if there was a setting that would allow it to "move-to-back" so as to allow a user to click things within the shape while keeping the outline of the shape.

    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.

  17. 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)

  18. 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.

  19. Trend: Ability to see long-term trace to put current trace in context

    As a PI Vision user, I want to be able to see a trend's trace in context with how the trace is trending over a larger time range.

    This could be visualized with a smaller trace above the trend that shows the trace over a larger time range, with the section highlighted that corresponds to time range of the main trend. This highlighted section should be able to be dragged forward or backward in times and should be able to be expanded or shrunk using handles. See attached image for an example.

  20. 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.
