Provide migration from PI BatchView
Provide a migration from PI Batchview displays in PI ProcessBook to PI Vision.
PI Vision needs to support the same functionality that is available in Process Book - BatchView. Not having the ability to recreate these displays in PI Vision is preventing us from fully transitioning over to PI Vision in many areas.
Unfortunately OSIsoft decided to abandon ProcessBook and the possibility of getting Event Frames in it (what a pity!).
I also wish we could give users the ability to reuse quickly their own displays made with PI BatchView but, on the base of my understanding , at the current time there is no hope: PI Batch data are not visible in PI Vision and they cannot be automatically migrated to EF. So every site should be charged first for a migration plan from [PI MDB,Batches] to [PI AF,Event Frames], and then should work on recreating the same or similar BatchView displays.
In my opinion a sort of add-on in PI Vision making PI Batch data as visible would be appropriate: the possibility of migrating PI ProcessBook displays should also include the ones containing PI BatchView symbols and the visibility to relative data.

Agree with comment here, it would be tedious to have to reproduce all the graphics for PIVision from Process books.
I can't tell my users they are going to be transitioned to a new user interface that has LESS functionality than their existing tool. As wonderful as AF and PI Vision are, losing batchview functionality is currently a deal breaker for my company.
