  2. Support multiple time ranges for trends on a display

    Have the ability to support multiple time ranges for trends on a display.  For example a trend might be configured as showing the last 8 hours, another one as the last 7 days, and another one the last month.

  3. Support renaming of AF elements and attributes

    PI Vision does not support the renaming of AF elements or attributes or the movement of them within the hierarchy. After renaming or moving these objects, symbols referencing them will show No Data in PI Vision.

  4. Allow sharing a display with edit permission

    As a display creator, I want to give other users edit permission on the display so we can collaborate in creating the display and so that other users from my team can make needed changes when I'm not available.

  6. Multistate: Make visible/invisible based on data item value

    Change graphics based on a data item value. For example enhance the multistate functionality so that is it possible to make a symbol visible when a tag/attribute value is equal to 1 and invisible when equal to 0 (or another condition).

  7. Multistate: Change text color

    In multistate, we are able to change background color.

  10. Trend: Edit trace name in legend or be able to add a description

    Edit the trace name or add a description in the legend of a trend in order to:

    1) Make clear the description of the Attribute in the trend
    2) Use an abbreviation for the attribute description in the trend legend
    3) Use a different language in the legend while respecting the attribute name (for example, an attribute name is written in English in PI System Explorer but we would like to see Italian in the Coresight trend)

  12. Trend: Axis value scale on the outside of graph

    Y axis value scale should be on the outside of the graph/trend plot area and when this is done, show minor ticks when multiple scales are used. Axis values cannot be seen if they are covered by data.

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

    As a PI Vision user I would like to be able to increase the update rate of PI Vision displays to less than 5 seconds and even sub-seconds so I can use it for trending.

  14. Trend: Scatter plot - Switch off connecting lines

    In trends give the user the option of disabling the connecting lines so that markers representing only the archived or calculated values are shown as a scatter plot.

  15. Add element name and description to display

    We should be able to add element's name and description to symbols, without the need to create another attribute for that. So we could easily have element relative titles and labels...

    The functionality to add element name to symbols is currently in development for the PI Vision 2020 release.

    With PI Vision 2020, you will be able to add element name, attribute name, attribute/tag description, or custom text as labels for trend, value, vertical gauge, horizontal gauge, and radial gauge symbols.

  16. 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.

  17. Migrate data sets from PI ProcessBook displays to PI Vision

    Most of displays that we use have datasets, it is important to migrate these as displays are migrated to native PI Vision displays.

  18. Trend: Average/Min/Max value line

    After PI Coresight upgrade, average values are not available in trends. It is only available in Table format. Appreciate if you could re-instate the average/min/max value lines in trend.

  19. Improve display loading performance

    Large displays can take 30 seconds or longer to load. Load times are particularly slow in Internet Explorer. Displays needs to load faster.

  20. Trend: Vertical gridlines

    Plots such as the pad trends, could benefit from grid lines to help quantify the changes over time.  The horizontal axis has decent grid definition between the grey and the black, but the lack of vertical axis makes it hard to compare day to day comparisons.
