How can we improve PI Vision?

Open attached files directly from PI-Vision

It is great that I can attach files as an attribute to an element in AF and that these files are shown in the PI-Vision navigation (see attached screenshot). But why is it not possible to open these files directly from PI-Vision? This would be a great improvment.

    In response to Paurav Joshi, "I would like to add a point here that it..."
    Not sure if that passes best practices around security....but in general i would not limit the files in any way but leave the checking of safety to the webbrowser and other software on the endpoint.

    I would like to add a point here that it should also allow to attach small .exe file to view specific file. For example, whenever SharePoint Portal opens, SVG viewer get installed so that client can see svg files on it.

    These are the simple things that have great potential!
    One example i have: action plans or SOPs are loaded into AF as a PDF. Now i have an in an attribute URL pointing to a IIS virtual directory where i store the PDFs. Too many steps, which i could replace with one simple attribute and one stock symbol.

    E.g. the attribute value symbol could be extended to download this file to the client.
