Show descriptions in tooltip
In PI CoreSight 2014, when working with a raw Tag or attribute, one could hover over the tag and the description would appear in the tooltip. I loved that functionality. However, in the upgrade, this functionality is lost.
Please reinstate it for the next patch or upgrade.
In PI Vision 2019 when hovering over tags/attributes in the left hand search/tree window the description text is presented if there is one.
However, the same behavior should be also when hovering over tags/attributes in a trend symbol and other symbols.
Often, the description text gives additional valuable information to the user about the measurement point.

Our users would like to have the descriptions for PI Tags and AF attributes in PI Vision as well
I would like to have the desciptions for AF elements and PI Tags in PI Vision
I would like to have the desciptions for AF elements also visible when hovering over it in PI Coresight 2016.
I agree with the need for tag descriptions in Coresight. I know AF cures this by having friendly names and descriptions but we are not going to have every single tag mapped out in AF and for those scenarios it would be truly beneficial to have the tag descriptions available in coresight.
Our users would like this re instated as well.
