Events Table: Show attribute values
Be able to compare attributes from multiple similar events against each other in the events table symbol.
User Story: As a process engineer, Lalit wants to compare attributes from similar events to one another in a table and sort by the columns of the table SO THAT he can use the attribute values to compare the events to one another.
I'm surprised this feature isn't present. Why not? This is a key part of the user experience.
This is the top voted item that has no feedback comments from the product team. This idea has been here for just under five years now. Can we please get this functionality added to native PIVision? The event frame table needs to be able to show (a) event frame template attribute columns, and (b) associated asset attribute columns. And, we will also want to be able to filter event frames on attribute column values. Finally, we don't always need to see the event frame name.
I was gob smacked this wasn't a thing.
The attributes are there in the list to the right and I immediately tried to drag them to the table with no luck...
nothing in the table config either.
Would suggest this would be rather useful?

The "Asset Comparison Table" can be used to display the attributes of multiple events in table format. That symbol has the capability of displaying them. However the search is not available to update the events, just the elements. Updating the search to include "Events" should be enough to show the event attributes.

Four and a half years, and this is still not implemented. The data is there, and we need access to it in the table.
It is very surprising that this feature was not included. This is a definite need.

This feature is urgently needed for monitoring sewage treatment plant bypass flows.
As well as event name, start/end time we NEED the ability to display event attributes such as 'Total volume bypassed', 'max rainfall', 'total inlet volume', etc

This feature is a must-do. I am surprised that it is not part of the EF table functionalities. It is a major flaw. Once you use the EF table, the first thing you look for is this.
Please get this developed and released ASAP. Thank you!

This feature is badly needed for us to do process troubleshooting
Fernando Rodriguez commented
This would be great!
Add the ability to add event frames attributes to the event tables
John Xu commented
Yes Please. A Event Table without Event attributes is useless in most of the scenarios
Oliverio Hernandez commented
Yes please, include that feature. I stopped working in this because I cannot add more columns to the event comparison table, since we cannot add more columns showing event frame attributes.
We consider this a major flaw with the Event Frame Comparison table, rendering it virtually useless for most of the foundational applications for which users request.
We have turned away from using Event Frame Comparison tables in favor of Asset Comparison tables that are filtered/sorted by attributes which contain the information/triggers that were previously used by the event frames. Unfortunately, this is only an instantaneous view of the status & info for everything that is being monitored and does not provide much insight into history.

I am currently building out dashboards for my facility and this feature would greatly increase the usefulness of the event frame table.
This would be a great feature. It would allow for a quick comparison of event frames on existing dashboards without the need to go into the event frame viewer / comparison area of PI Vision

Please please please ADD this feature to the EF tables. We badly need this enhancement to be implemented ASAP.
Qi Rui commented
YES please! We are reporting our process exit cycle time. One thing we need to grab is the Batch ID at the end of the event frame so we made a EF attribute to store the info. It would be super helpful if the information could be displayed as one of the columns.

We use the event table to monitor off-spec events triggered by laboratory values. It would be very helpful to be able to compare the value with the thresholds.
We have the same request from one of our customers. They are monitoring their filling line and want to Dashboard which line is currently busy with which order and how much already has been filled.
With additional attributes in the Event Table, they could easily show that with just one query.
