  1. Offline Display Management: Allow PI Vision displays to be imported and exported

    There is a need to be able to export and import PI Vision displays so that displays can be managed offline. This would allow transferring displays between systems that are not connected, taking backups of displays, versioning displays, sharing displays with customers, vendors, and third-parties, etc.

  8. Ad hoc trend with multiple selected attributes

    Build trend with multiple traces based on a display data (for instance, from a table). PI Vision user should be able to select multiple items on the table and then trend them on a single ad-hoc trend to compare. The ad-hoc trend should appear in a pop-up window (which you can move) in the same browser tab and the user should be able to switch between the main screen and the ah-hoc trend window to drag and drop more attributes from tables and value symbols on the screen. It's very important to see both ad-hoc trend and the main display…

  10. Allow sharing a display with edit permission

  11. Bar chart and stacked bar chart

    I have summarized energy data for kWh consumption by day for buildings and plant that is written at specific end of shift day week points.

    I'd like to be able to have this display as a stacked bar where the various plant consumption components are shown as a proportion of the bar and the height of the bar is the sum of the components.

    Classic stacked bar chart.

  14. Trend: Show data item descriptions

    Be able to view the tag/attribute descriptions on the bottom of the trend the same way that you are able to in ProcessBook. For those of us with large DB, it is very important to have this functionality.
