Replay Time / Playback Time
Be able to go back in history and "replay" what happened while looking at a display.
Also potentially integrate this with event frames, i.e. the ability to replay what happened leading up to an event, during event, and after an event.
Until PIVision includes the replay/playback functions, ProcessBook will be a requirement. The toolbar also includes the fine and coarse control of time for the displayed data, fine control is missing from PIVision.
add a playback feature like the one in ProcessBook. ProcessBook playback feature was used to replay an event in accelerated mode. It was very useful for investigation when a problem or an accident occured.

Agreed - just like a DVR. We have construced hundreds of displays that replicate our Process Control Systems (PCS). It would be game changing to be able to update the display for a particular time (dd-mmm-yy hh:mm:ss), specify the duration interval (i.e. 5s, 10s, etc...), and just hit a play button that automatically advances the time on display by that interval.
Useless for dashboards; powerful for PCS replica displays.

When is this functionality going to become incorporated from Processbook into PI Vision?
My interpretation of this request is to "run/pause" an automatic forward/backward scrolling of the timewindow by a selectable time step, something doable manuallly by repetitively pushing the arrows in the time bar.
