  2. Context related images

    Different assets with the same template can be visually different.
    I would like the "Image" symbol to be able to use the URL of an image as defined in an attribute of an element to decide what image sholud be shown.

  3. Table of data from an external database

    As a PI Vision user, I want to view a table of data from an ODBC data source on a display alongside my PI data so that I can see related information from other systems of record.

  4. Better Mobile Functionality

    The mobile version of the website needs better browsing features, or the easy ability to just disable it.

  5. AFTable data in Coresight

    Allow AFTable data to be used in a Coresight display symbol.

    Currently there is no way to navigate to AFTable instances in the navigation pane of Coresight. It would be useful to expose these object types and allow custom Coresight symbols to consume their data.

    It would also be beneficial to expose a function in the webServices service so that this data can be retrieved programmatically. Currently, this is only possible by directly querying the PI Web API for this data via an $http call.

  6. Auto fit width option

    As a user, I would like to have an autofit width option for PI Vision displays. For very large displays, fit all zooms out too far. Fit width would allow the user to easily scroll up and down the display to see all of the content.

    This option would be particularly useful on mobile phones as well to be able to easily view all display contents by scrolling up and down.

  7. Web push notification for Desktop alerts in Vision

    Google Chrome and many other modern browsers currently support push notifications from a website. There are many users who would appreciate if PI Vision can push out a visual notification to user's desktop.

    With/without PI Notification, visual alert from PI Vision can be very useful for users who seek immediate alerts. This may be a successor to PI Desktop Alert

  9. Align items with first clicked

    Modify the object alignment so the objects all align (top middle bottom...) with the first object selected. This way the first object does not move, everything else aligns to it.

  10. Stacked Y-axis Event Frame Gantt symbol

    The X axis is time based. Event Frames are “stacked” on the Y axis with the length of each determined by the event duration.

  11. Share a trend via email

    Be able to select a trend, click a share button, and have PI Coresight automatically take a screen shot of the trend and insert it into email.

    Also include a summary table of the data in the trend.

    Also include a link to the same ad hoc trend in PI Coresight and a link to the display the trend was on when shared, preserving all time context.

  12. Support Multi-tenancy in PI Coresight

    Have Coresight support mutli-tenancy (possibly as Software as a Service, SaaS) so individual tenants of the application can't access each other's displays/data.

    In order to support multiple tenants, we need a way to isolate displays so that users can only see certain displays.

  14. internet explorer vs Chrome

    I realize that this very well may be out of OSIsoft's control. However the very noticeable performance difference between Internet Explorer and Chrome on displays, particularly ones utilizing many objects is problematic. Internet Explorer is still such a heavily used browser within the organization. Its confusing for many since we would recommend Chrome usage, but that results in users having to juggle applications requiring IE in the organization and Chrome.

    PI Vision is built and tested to function when visited by any of its supported browsers, but may not have equal performance on each browser.

    As a modern web application, PI Vision relies on client-side JavaScript execution in browsers to provide a fast and smooth experience for users. JavaScript execution is completely dependent on the interpretation, compilation, and run-time code provided by the browser’s JavaScript engine. As such, browsers with faster JavaScript engines will provide faster performance in PI Vision.

  15. Create Reporting Functionality on PIML Web

    Many users like auditing tour runs and verifying tour completions to ensure compliance to operational standards and procedures. 

    Currently, users must use Excel to build their own reports which queries the SQL Backend directly.

    Having this functionality in PIML Web will allow better user experience and complies with OSIsoft best practices with regards to the SQL Backend.

  16. More flexible data table/matrix

    I need a more flexible table tool where I can decide exactly what goes in each cell. They could come from related attributes or from PI tags, and each box in the table shows something separate.  Here is a screen shot of what I would like, but currently have had to create by brute force in ProcessBook.

  18. PIML Web: New Tour Run button

    In PIML Web, when I select a Tour from the Tour List, the page seems to soft refresh and load the tour page again and brings the page to the top. I then have to scroll back down to the bottom to select New Tour Run.

    It would be helpful to either move the New Tour Run button to the top of the page or have it scroll with you. This is a large inconvenience to my operators using iPads with large tour lists where they experience below freezing temperatures in the field and any improvement to efficiency would be…

  19. Improve Barcode navigation

    Allow PIML to navigate by barcode. Currently you have to be on the correct tag in the route to enter a barcode scan. The idea is to have barcode scanning to move around the route, this would allow the operator to go to a plant item with a barcode, scan it, and then PIML to navigate to that tag and allow data entry within that tag without having to step through each point on the route until you are at the correct tag.
