Add element name and description to display
We should be able to add element's name and description to symbols, without the need to create another attribute for that. So we could easily have element relative titles and labels...
The functionality to add element name to symbols is currently in development for the PI Vision 2020 release.
With PI Vision 2020, you will be able to add element name, attribute name, attribute/tag description, or custom text as labels for trend, value, vertical gauge, horizontal gauge, and radial gauge symbols.

This is another useful feature of ProcessBook that should be ported to Vision. See Add Element Name here:
Can we automatically make element name available without having to make it an attribute in PI AF to select in context switching in PI Vision ....
this would be super handy
