  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…

    We are currently working on providing the ability to add multiple cursors to a trend for the PI Vision 2019 release.

    UPDATE: It will be possible to add multiple cursors to trends on displays as well as popup trends and to the trend in the new ad hoc workspace that is being introduced in PI Vision 2019.

  3. Convert ProcessBook display to PI Vision display

    Can we have a tool to convert ProcessBook display to native PI Vision display? So we can leverage the full features of PI Vision displays,.

    The PI ProcessBook to PI Vision migration tool is still in development for the upcoming release of PI Vision 2019 and is on track for Q2 2019. This tool will allow you to analyze your ProcessBook displays ahead of the migration to assess which displays are ready to migrate and which displays may need to be evaluated prior to migration.

  4. Trend: Show cursor 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 versions and in ProcessBook.

  6. 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 in development 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Busy Indicator

    It would be useful to have an indication that the data is still being loaded. Currently when you add an attribute to the display, change the time range of a display, execute a dynamic search, etc you don't get an indication that something is happening. Some of our operations are quite far away with limited bandwidth.

  10. Ability to change time when trending an individual attribute/tag value in a pop up trend

    For a ProcessBook display published to Coresight, if a user selects single object - value, trend, multistate, etc - and double-clicks to bring up a full screen adhoc trend, the Coresight time controls are still at the bottom and can be used to control time range and move around in history.

    If a user tries same in a native Coresight display - the time inherited in the popup trend is from the main display with no capability to modify.  The user must set the time slice in the main display before going to an adhoc trend.

  11. Trend Zoom - Undo

    I need the ability to undo, revert time ranges or go back a step or steps when zooming in on data in a trend. Currently the only way to do this that I'm aware of is to start from scratch with your default time range at the bottom.

    When in full screen mode (pop-up) for a trend the only option you have is to go back and from there you have to start from scratch again.

    Being able to undo/revert time ranges would definitely increase the usability and make analyzing data more efficient.

  12. Selected Symbols

    Need to make it clearer which symbol is selected.

    Gray box is too big and can be difficult to see on displays with certain background colors. Users cannot tell if they are selecting the correct symbol.

  13. Gauge: Shading Start Value

    As a display author, I would like to configure where the shading of the gauge/bar starts (min, max, target, or a custom value) so that I can easily track the value's deviation from a certain target.

  15. Imported Processbook Display, Allow option for Scale-Range when open pop-up trend by clicking on Value Symbol

    Currently on imported PB display, when clicking on Value Symbol, a pop-up trend will use Auto-Range to set the scale of the trend. I would like to have an the option to use 'Database' setting.

  16. Support 'Apply Time Range' and other event actions from the Events Table

    As a PI Vision user, I want to be able to right-click on an Event in the Events Table and select Apply Time Range to update the time range of the Editor display. Adding this functionality would be consistent with the Events Search pane, where this option already exists.

    The other events pane options should also be possible from events table:
    Compare Similar Events by Name
    Compare Similar Events by Type

  17. Change display sharing options for displays in a folder

    If a display is in a folder, the list of identities with which the display can be shared will include all identities. However, the customer do not want to see all the Identities, only want to find all identities that the current user is a member of.

    We are making this change in the upcoming release of PI Vision 2019 so that only users with write access to a folder will see the sharing option for that folder and the list of identities shown will be the identities that they are a member of in addition to the identities that the folder has already been shared with.

  18. 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.

  19. Make popup trend show value and traits on the same scale

    If I double-click on a multistate symbol, I get an ad-hoc display showing the value and all it's thresholds. This is great except that the trend is multi-scale, which makes the threshold lines useless. If an ad-hoc trend is showing a values and its limits, they should all share the same scale (and possibly be differentiated by line-style or colour intensity instead of colour hue)
