    The PI Vision development team has completed work to allow the “Fit-all” option to be saved with a display in PI Vision 2017. Displays saved with “Fit-all” will automatically resize to fit within the browser window. Upgrade to PI Vision 2017 to take advantage of this and other key new features. You can read about the key new features in PI Vision 2017 in our release announcement here: https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/Releases/RL01216

  2. Hover/Mouse Over ToolTip for Hyperlinks and Navigation Links

    As a PI Vision user, it would be helpful to have a ToolTip showing the hyperlink when a Navigation Link is added to an object or symbol. Right now, this only occurs with a Text symbol, but it would be helpful to have this for other symbols, such as a shape or image.

    In PI Vision 2019, navigation links are now more discoverable on a display. When hovering over a symbol with a navigation link, the mouse cursor will change to indicate that there is a link and the symbol’s tooltip will display the configured hyperlink.

    Navigating is now done using a single-click instead of a double-click for all symbols except for the trend, where a double-click is still required so that single-click trend interactions (trend cursor, highlighting a trace) are still possible.

  3. Events Table / Events Dashboard

    Support a table that can show event frame data on a process display.  For example, "show me all of the downtime events for the past 24 hours in a table". 

    The table might be sorted by different columns such as severity, links to Event Details page, and acknowledgement status as well.  See attached picture for one possible idea.

    The PI Vision development team has completed work on the Events Table in PI Vision 2017 R2. The Events Table is now out of CTP and includes the ability to add a Reason Code column based on the Event Frame ‘Reason’ attribute trait in AF. Users can edit the reason code and acknowledge Event Frames directly from the table or navigate to the Event Details page to investigate further.

    Upgrade to PI Vision 2017 R2 to take advantage of this and other key new features. You can read about what’s new in PI Vision 2017 R2 in the release announcement: https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/Releases/RL01278

  4. Quick Filter on Assets Dropdown for Element Relative

    The Asset dropdown that allows user to change context should support ability to search as the user types.  This is a necessity when there are more assets that fit on a single page.

    The PI Vision development team has completed work on a filter in the related assets selector on displays in PI Vision 2017 R2 so users can quickly find an asset in the list.

  5. Manually Enter Event (EF) Attributes (like a Reason Code)

    I'd like to manually enter data into event (event frame) attributes from PI Coresight.  The most common example of this are attributes such as a Reason Code for an excursion or downtime event, but there are other examples as well.

  6. PI Manual Logger: Option for Web App to default to Grid View

    In PI Manual Logger Web, there is a Grid Data Entry view, and a List Data Entry view.  The current default is the List view.  However, many users only use the Grid view.  It would be nice to have an option, such as a url parameter, that has a Tour Run default to the Grid view.

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

    A number of trend configuration enhancements will be included in PI Coresight 2016 R2. These enhancements include:
    - Set the Y scale on a per data item basis
    - Set the color, thickness, and line style for a trace line
    - Control the list order of data items in the legend
    - Set the foreground and background color for the trend

    Thank you for providing your feedback and helping us add the features you want to PI Coresight.

  9. Dynamic Collection Criteria Search Root

    I would like to be able to dynamically change my collection criteria search root, based on the drop-down asset, so that the collection is element relative. This way, I don't have to create multiple collection displays.

    Be able to restrict read access of displays to a group of users.

    Provide ability to be able to create display groups in PI Coresight
    Provide ability to be able to assign displays to groups.
    Provide ability for admin to be able to remove groups, or modify displays contained within groups.

    PI Coresight 2016 includes a feature that allows a display owner to share a display with a specific group of users. Management of security groups is controlled by an Administrator using PI-AF identities (which can be tied to Active Directory groups). Group sharing applies to native PI Coresight displays and imported PI ProcessBook displays.

  11. Select which Template is used for Switch Asset

    When using Element Relative Display and Switch Asset, allow for selecting which Template of the current Asset is used for searching when is using templates that are derived from other templates.

    The current search appears to only be based on the most derived Template but the display may be valid for a common base template shared by different types of assets.

    A dropdown could be shown in the Switch Asset selector when the current asset is using derived templates to help filter.

  12. View Read-Only Access for Coresight users

    Allow a PI Coresight Admin to provide viewing (read-only) access to a subset of users. These users will not have the ability to save new displays.

    An example might be a university where they would like to give students viewing read-only access to displays available in the system.

    ===
    Note that this request is different than a kiosk mode which does limit creation of new displays, but does not allow a user to search for data items, perform ad hoc creation of symbols, and does not enable navigation from the displays page.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 106679.

  15. Trending

    Trending Must Haves:

    I recently installed PI Vision here and I am getting feedback about the trending capabilities, or the lack there of. Please fix the following in the trends

    1. The ability to click on values on a page and create an Ad-Hoc Trend. This is another major need.

    2. Need to add descriptors to trends

    3. MUST BE ABLE to un-zoom in a trend and keep your current place in time. For example if I have a 24 hour trend and I scroll back 10 days and then zoom in, when I un-zoom I still want to be back 10 days…

  18. Make XY-Plot available for collections

    Most symbols can be dynamically organized into collections, which is very handy for comparing assets of different sites, where the number of assets vary.
    The XY-Plot does not support this function at the moment.

    PI Vision 2020 introduces the ability to create calculations within your display, similar to calculation data sets in PI ProcessBook. With the PI ProcessBook to PI Vision Migration Utility, you can now migrate your ProcessBook displays that contain data sets over to PI Vision displays that contain calculations.

  20. Option for Hourly or Daily Intervals when viewing data

    Have an option to change the interval of the data. For example, it would be helpful to be able to trend raw data in hourly or daily average intervals over the time-frame selected to smooth out the trace. Currently this is feasible with a tag calculation through AF which takes up tags.
