How can we improve PI Vision?

Edit Trace Name in Trend Legend or be able to add a description

Edit the trace name or add a description in the legend of a Coresight trend in order to:

1) Make clear the description of the Attribute in the trend
2) Use an abbreviation for the attribute description in the trend legend
3) Use a different language in the legend while respecting the attribute name (for example, an attribute name is written in English in PI System Explorer but we would like to see Italian in the Coresight trend)

    Hi, being able to set a custom Name would be quite helpful for us. Do you know when a release is planned with that functionality?

    I would like to be able to add a description independent of the descriptor in the database because depending on why you create the trend it may have a deferent meaning. Such as KO drum pressure vs 1st stage suction pressure.

    with pi vision it would be nice to be able to have the option to select the pi tag description to be shown on charts, rather than just the pi tag name. some people follow pi tag naming convention and some dont. being able to select the description would make life much easier to move from process book to pi vision for my group.

    need to be able to customize the labels of the graph items. Some items have too much information and can be misleading... example: OTHER/MS-2922 SLUDGE TANK LEVEL. We should be able to delete "OTHER"

    It would really help if you were able to change the name of traces in trends. The names on the attached file are both long and not really informative.
