    We would like to have a report or functionality in PI Vision to check the list of users who have accessed a particular display.

    It would be great to be able to generate reports based on how many times a user has accessed a display and how many times a display has been accessed by the entire user base.

    Maybe instead of adding this functionality in the reporting tab of the Admin page, add the ability to see the total count on each Display tile, only readable by PI Admins, where we can click on the number and see how many times the display has been accessed by X, Y, Z, etc,

    Maybe a few points we can monitor - Displays Total, Displays in use and displays with no use.

    We can have the last access by users and screen but not the number of hits.
    It would be nice to have such information to measure the ROI and impact of each view
    At least we can have the number of users & last access.
    My colleague give me this :

    WITH group1 AS (
      SELECT  [User]
        FROM [Vision].[dbo].[UserDisplayData]
    group2 AS (
      SELECT [Name]
        FROM [Vision].[dbo].[View_DisplayList]
    SELECT [name], [USER], [LastAccessed]
      FROM group1
      JOIN group2 ON group1.DisplayID = group2.DisplayID

    As a PI Administrator, I would like to know how many people in my organization are making displays, which displays are the most used, which displays can be deleted because of inactivity, and which displays are throwing errors and need to be fixed.

    MS SQL server has a feature which is called auditing, couldn't you share a method based on auditing the select statements to implement this functionality ? we really need to know who is using what and when !!

  • NikolayKolesnikov commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    That would be a very useful feature. I would be glad to have a possibility to get a display usage report from Admin page for the selected time period.

    It would be nice if this was added as an option to the current Admin Reports. There is already an option to view/export a report of users who have accessed PI Vision in a period of time, why not do this on a "per display" basis?

    I agree. If this cannot be done inhouse, we at least need to the option to integrate with usage analytic engines such as Google Analytics and HotJar. PI was built on integrating with other sources, Vision needs some of that.

    As an admin i need to know which display is used how often from hoam and in which frequency.
