How can we improve PI Vision?

Show AD display names rather than User ID

PI Vision shows who owns a display and who commented on Event Frames, but does so by showing the user's ID in format "Domain\UserID" which is not always readable. It would be better to display the AD user's display name in these places to make it clear who performed the action.

    Option to display both will be good.
    In big organization, it will be difficult to distinguish by AD user's
    display name alone, because there will be people with similar names.

    I think this would be a useful improvement as in most cases and depending on the organization, active directory user IDs are not always obvious to identify who the user is. This is the case for the company I work for and the people interested in making or reviewing comments or acknowledging events have no idea who has made the previous comments based on user ID. Using the active directory display name would solve this but including the option to choose in PI Vision Admin site or the web application settings which to display (user id or display name) would allow for more flexibility based on the organization.
