Make any Coresight object a link
Make any Coresight object a link. Rather than only be able to navigate using buttons, it would be nice for style/intuitive use to be able to make a text label a link, or a rectangle/circle/etc.
The PI Vision development team has completed work on Drill-in Navigation in PI Vision 2017 that enables linking to a URL or another PI Vision display from any symbol on a display with options to pass the asset context of the selected symbol and the time range of the display. 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

Combined with the URI DataReference, the value symbol should be a great symbol to support hyperlinks to other pages.
Tomas Stark commented
This can already be fixed by placing a text symbol on top of the other symbol ("Coresight object") and set the text color to None (invisible).

Hyper-link enabled shapes, not just text
Note that during the upgrade from Coresight 2015 to 2016, existing button objects with links are converted to text w/links; if you have large numbers of buttons the text can wind up sitting on top of other text...very jumbled and unusable without significant editing.
