  1. 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…

    An ad-hoc trending feature is planned for PI Vision 2019 and will support selection of attributes from displays or from a search to add to an ad-hoc trend for analyzing data and investigating issues on the fly.

  2. Trend: Multiple Trend Cursors

    As a process engineer, it is helpful to see values at several points of interest on a trend at the same time.

    The ability to add multiple trend cursors to trends on PI Vision displays is planned for the PI Vision 4.x release.

    The request for statistics between multiple cursors is now being tracked in a separate item. If you are interested in this functionality, you can vote/comment on it here: https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/320517/suggestions/36142918

    Users who had previously indicated that they were interested in statistics between cursors have automatically been added to the new item.

  3. Allow the PI Vision Display Utility to export the configuration to a file and import from a file

    The current (2017) version of the PI Vision Display Utility requires both environments (source & target) to be connected. There is a need to be able to export and import those displays between systems that are not connected.
    If not exported to a file, it could, for example, use PI Web API to use the REST endpoint to export the display configuration and vice-versa.

  5. Display hand when hovering over objects with Navigation Links

    When hovering with the mouse over a display object that has a Navigation Link attached to it, the mouse cursor should change to a hand when not in edit mode and it should navigate on single-click instead of having to double-click.

    Having the mouse cursor change to a hand to indicate when a symbol is configured with a navigation link is planned for the PI Vision 2019 release. To make this behavior more intuitive for users, single-clicking the symbol will trigger the navigation instead of double-click. Trends will be an exception to this, single-clicking a trend will continue to drop a cursor and double-click will be required for navigation links.

  6. 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.

  7. Export Data Supports Data Frequency

    As a process engineer, I would like to be able to control the data frequency (minute, hour, etc.) of how much data is exported for my time range rather than a fixed number of data points SO THAT the data that I export can actually be used for some analysis rather than data that is too sparse to be used.

  8. Shortcut to collapse all groups at once in the PIML Web Grid View

    By default in the PI Manual Logger Grid view, all groups are displayed in the expanded state.  To minimize clutter on the screen, some users like to work with all groups collapsed except for the group they are currently working with.  To facilitate this workflow, it would be helpful to have a "Collapse all/Expand all" control to collapse or expand all groups at once in the grid view.

  9. Adding / Configuring the Marker Size/Format in XY Plot

    Adding / Configuring the Marker Size/Format in XY Plot.
    Having a lot of markers in the XY plot the point cloud gets unusable because of Marker Size is to big
    So either definition of own smaller Marker ( hair cross - single pixel ...) or an option to change marker size would Help
