How can we improve PI Vision?

Allow sharing a display with edit permission

As a display creator, I want to give other users edit permission on the display so we can collaborate in creating the display and so that other users from my team can make needed changes when I'm not available.

Role-based edit permissions on displays is in development for the PI Vision 4.x release. This will allow you to give multiple users permissions to edit the same display.

    Same need here, we want to be able to have multiple editors for a single screen, preferably driven by AD groups.

    Excellent! I was just asking for this at a recent PI presentation!
    I had asked for ownership to be set to a group. Some sort of role-based edit permissions is definitely needed!

    Need the ability to associate display ownership to an identity so that a group of people can modify the display.  This need in environment where we have multiple shifts.

    Is it possible to have 1 display with multiple owners? This will be a good case when we have users that works 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off but are working and enhancing the same display.

    Talking with a number of superusers at DCP Midstream, this is a critical feature that will allow teams to collaborate much more efficiently on development of displays. Please prioritize this feature!

    Have the ability to assign ownership of a display to an Active Directory group as opposed to a single individual.

    When sharing a display, it would be useful if you could choose whether you wanted someone to have read-only or edit permissions to it. Currently, only one person can make edits to a display and anyone that it's shared with can only view in read-only. Edits they make must be saved under a new name, which does not allow for collaboration.
