  1. Ability to edit some PI-AF properties from PI Coresight, i.e.: Light-weight PSE

    PSE is often used as a client-tool where it is not intended to be. It would be very beneficial to have a simple PSE tool just to view data. Browse Element Hierarchies and view Attributes, EventFrames.
    Just like PSE. The hierarchy could also make a small step towards a navigation hierarchy to navigate to Asset-relative displays.

  2. Allow users to request access to data

    If a user doesn't have access to view the data associated with data items (tags/attributes) on a display, provide a way for them to be able to request access to the data.

  3. Prevent users from opening display if they don't have access to data

    If a user does not have access to any of the data items (tags/attributes) on a display, they should not be able to open that display.

  4. Analysis Expression Tooltip in PI Vision like in PSE

    The customer would like to see when hovering on an attribute that shows calculated data which is the expression that gives that output.

    Something similar of what you see PSE (image attached)

    They have users requesting for it, they would not like to have to give access to the users to see this information in PI Vision.

    They would like to know if the analysis expression has the correct functions and variables.

  5. Ability to change image/graphic based on a data item's value

    Hi there,

    Please add a feature for "MultiState Graphics"

    This would be a simple feature where if a value for a tag or asset was equal to something then the image would change.

    An example of this would be if you had an image of a moving turbine which indicated that a turbine was active as the status tag was equal to 100 but if the status tag was equal to 0 then the turbine was not active and an image of a still (not moving turbine was shown.

    This would be a very helpful feature, I am happy to…

  6. Change Time Range Defaults

    Add custom time range defaults. Shifts at my organization are 12 hours, I would like to allow my users to be able to select 12 hours without having to type in the timestamps manually.  (As opposed to or in addition to 1h, 8h, 1d etc.)

  7. Fully customisable Homepage/Landing Page

    A Homepage/Landing page that we can place navigation buttons on is a much nicer user experience than browsing folders to find a display.  While the planned folder structure of organising displays is better than what is currently offered, and there are a couple of Homepage "ideas" already posted, they don't really have a clear idea of what they want. A user friendly way of navigating the hundreds of pages and trends that we have is required.  Currently 300 or so pages and probably more again in trends.  See attachment as an example.

  8. Allow option to prevent trend interpolation after the most recent data value

    Currently, trends interpolate a line after the most recent data value--which means that if the last value occurred two hours ago a flat line will be drawn on the trend from the last value until now, which can erroneously give the impression that data has been received during that time period.  If interpolation could be disabled, this would have the trend not draw a flat line after the most recent value, but rather simply terminate the trend line at the last data point.  This is related to the following related item: https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/555148-pi-server/suggestions/18496177-add-new-pipointattribute-for-staletimeout; however, adding this option to the trend…

  9. Support manual data entry of future tag data in real time

    Manual data entry users want to write forecast data (e.g. 1 month into the future for tags belonging for many sites/assets) without the data being queued for sending.

  12. Support for Active Directory groups in PI Manual Logger PC Client

    PI Manual Logger Web PC Client does not support AD groups currently. SQL Server and PI Identities that need to be setup support AD groups. The same AD groups should be used for Tour access so it is a cleaner way to manage routes (typically using IT Desk at companies) rather than manually adding and removing users on the PC Client.

    Thank you very much for sharing your feedback. After evaluating it further, we have decided to decline this item, due to other high priority engineering needs across the PI System. Thank you for your feedback, and know that we are listening and reviewing every item that gets submitted!

  13. Support of more than 1 reason code

    As a user, I would like to enter more than 1 reason code per event frame. For example, a downtime event frame is created for the whole production line, and I would like to have a reason code for the cause and the other for the equipment.
    Currently, AF only supports 1 reason trait attribute per event frame. This also allows PI Vision to enter 1 reason per event frame.

  14. XY Plot: Logarithmic scales for both axes

    It would be useful to be able to implement a logarithmic scale to either/both axes of xy plots. 

    Specific use case: Diagnose well conditions in real time by looking at conditions based on elapsed time since an event frame.  To be able to identify trends and perform diagnostics, this will need to be plotted as log Y vs log X (elapsed time).

  15. Add some options to the "Edit Search Criteria" in PI Vision

    Add some options to the "Edit Search Criteria" in PI Vision:
    The first option would be in the asset type filed. When searching according to the value of asset attributes, the customer would like to be able to specify the realtion between the selected conditions (OR / AND).
    Secondly, rather than searching by attribute values (which could be not accessible to certain users), the customer suggest also adding the attribute category. So, you can search for assets according to the attribute categories.

  19. Polar plot

    I want to be able to do a polar plot! We have the need to monitor deformation in the stator of a hydro turbine. The you can see if the stator is oval.
    The time-series data behind must have an configurable time space.
    Start time, period.
