View Display Usage
Administrators would like to have a way to know how often a display is used, and by how many users on a display management page.
This functionality is currently in development for the PI Vision 2020 release. A new report is planned that will show the count of total views and unique users that have accessed a display over a specified time period.
Hi @Steve - similar to our other time based admin reports, you will specify a time range for results and the report will show a line for each display that was used during the specified time range. In order to compare month by month, you will need to generate a separate report for each month.
Steve Taylor commented
Thanks for the update @Amit - can you clarify what you mean by 'over a specified time period'? Are we talking about a single row summary for the selected period, or can it show usage by month?

Any update on when this will be developed and added to PI Vision?
Facundo Vaccaro commented
Yes! we also need a report that shows every time a display was accessed by an user rather than just the last accessed date.
Béranger Orleach commented
I agree it would be really nice to have the the number of hits to measure the real value of the displays for our users.

We would like to have a report or functionality in PI Vision to check the list of users who have accessed a particular display.
Anthony Thompson commented
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.
Robert Low commented
need proof of use/value in displays, also to see what users needs are in actual 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 (
group2 AS (
SELECT [name], [USER], [LastAccessed]
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.

This is a critical feature for us at DCP Midstream!
Peter De Peuter commented
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 !!
Nikolay Kolesnikov commented
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.
Kelsey Bobeck commented
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?
Damon Vinciguerra commented
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.
