    PI Vision 2020 introduces new trend configuration options that allow display builders to select whether the trend time range should be based on display time range, duration/offset from display end time, or custom time range.

    See a demo of these capabilities on our YouTube learning channel: https://youtu.be/_tjfdGo_WTo

  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. 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…

  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.

  10. 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).

  13. Copy or migrate displays between systems & reassign data items

    Be able to copy displays between different Coresight systems. One example might be a dev --> test --> prod scenario. The migration needs to include the reassigning of data items to a new PI-AF server and/or PI Server.

    But there are other cases where you want to reuse a display that's already been created but it's in a different Coresight system.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 64766.

    The PI Vision Display Utility was released with PI Vision 2017 and allows PI Vision administrators to move displays between PI Vision servers and update data items on displays to facilitate migration between development, test and production environments.

  14. Trend: Allow custom titles

    Allow specifying plot titles for trend symbols, similar to how ProcessBook allows specifying a plot name.

  15. Specify the font size for a symbol

    it would be really useful to configure the size of both values and text by entering a number for the size of text

  16. 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)

  17. AF URL attribute object in PI Vision

    PI Vision should have a object that gives functionality to open URL´s from AF attributes.
    It is possibel to use URL´s in AF attributes, it is even possible to open them from system explorer.
    PI Vision should recon that it is a URL when you drag it into the design pane and automatically create a text object with the URL.

    The PI Vision development team has completed work on a new Graphics Library in PI Vision 2017 that provides a standard set of process and industry symbols can be used to create process diagrams and uniform representation of assets. Upgrade to PI Vision 2017 to take advantage of this and other key new features. You can read about the key new features in PI Vision 2017 in our release announcement here: https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/Releases/RL01216

  19. XY Plot

    Support an XY plot that is able to visualize data in another dimension other than time. 

    User story:  As a process engineer, I want to trend one attribute against another (like depth) SO THAT they can visualize the data in context of the other attribute rather than by time.

    Need in Coresight XY plotting abilities : mainly like in processbook + overlays of design/signature curves from AF tables. In addition overlays of differents XY curves from event frames would be great. This is really something missing to Coresight to be able to monitor pumps, compressors,…

    The PI Vision development team has completed work on the XY Plot in PI Vision 2017 R2. The XY Plot is now out of CTP and has improved performance, an updated configuration experience, and new formatting options. Upgrade to PI Vision 2017 R2 to take advantage of this and other key new features. You can read about what’s new in PI Vision 2017 R2 in the release announcement: https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/Releases/RL01278

  20. Number Formatting for Value

    It would be really useful to have a format definition for a number shown in the value symbol, e.g. according to Microsoft conventions ( https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/0c899ak8(v=vs.110).aspx ).

    Examples: the value 1234.5678 displayed using various formatting definitions:
    "#####" --> 1235
    "#####.#" --> 1234.6
