  1. 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.

  2. Support renaming of AF elements and attributes

    PI Coresight 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 Coresight.

    A migration tool to migrate PI ProcessBook displays to native PI Vision displays is currently in development for the upcoming release of PI Vision 2019. This will also include functionality to analyze your ProcessBook displays ahead of the migration to determine which displays are using features like VBA that will not be supported in PI Vision.

  6. 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.

  7. Trend Cursor: show values while dragging

    As a process engineer, while dragging a trend cursor I'd like to see the process values. Currently, I can only see the value once I drop the cursor, I need to see the values WHILE dragging the cursor so that I can quickly identify problems in my process.

    This feature was available in previous version of Coresight (2014 and 2015) and in ProcessBook.

  9. Table: Archived Values

    Provide a symbol in PI Coresight which displays the time and archive values of a data item based on the display's time range.

    Customer Issue: Customer uses PI Coresight to monitor the most recent 100 seconds of data on their production line, which updates every 10 seconds. The process engineers want to be able to see the previous 10 measurements collected. The values on the display need to be clearly visible from a distance and able to display the desired information without interaction. This can currently be done with ProcessBook or DataLink, but a thin client is preferred for these…

  10. Graphics: Make visible/invisible based on tag value

  11. Search Graphics Library

    Be able to search the graphics library by keywords rather than having to try to guess which of the many folders a certain graphic is in.

  12. Make XY-Plot available for collections

    Most symbols can be dynamically organized into collections, which is very handy for comparing assets of different sites, where the number of assets vary.
    The XY-Plot does not support this function at the moment.

  14. Change the data label / description for all symbols

    Be able to change the label for data on any symbol on the display, similar to how the value symbol does which gives several contextual descriptions (like element|attribute, attribute, attribute's descripiton, etc) for the data or allows the user to specify a custom text.

  15. Option to disable warning pop-up for trusted third-party sites

    Add the option to whitelist certain domains from triggering the third-party warning pop-up. This could also be handled per session by end-users ("Remember my choice") instead of adding domains to a whitelist.

    Current version of PI Vision has the dialog box hardcoded to trigger if a navigation link is not a link to another display.

    This behavior is being changed for the PI Vision 2019 release so that there is no longer a pop-up warning when navigating to an external site. Instead the mouse cursor will change to indicate when a symbol is configured with a navigation link and a tooltip will show the navigation link URL.
