  1. Change the data label / description for all symbols

    Be able to change the label for data on any symbol on the display, similar to how the value symbol does which gives several contextual descriptions (like element|attribute, attribute, attribute's descripiton, etc) for the data or allows the user to specify a custom text.

  3. Show data sources linked to a symbol

    Currently a symbol (except some standard symbols) do not have any way to show which data items are linked to a symbol. If you need to be sure, you either need to remove and recreate the symbol, or build support for that in your custom symbol, or look into the display definition in SQL.

    I would like some way do look into which data items are used in a symbol, so that users can validate the configuration of the symbol.

  4. Let users set if datapoint is stepped

    The end user would like to be able to set if a data item is stepped or not per user on a display. This could be a client setting rather than server side. Each user has a different preference on how to see the data.

  5. Trend Set exact size in pixels

    Ability to resize trends by pixels. In other words, we can manually define the size of the trends by entering a height/length and width.

  7. Drag/Add symbols without data items / blank symbols / emtpy symbols

    Like in PI ProcessBook you could add an empty Trend, copy-paste many times, to start a dashboard, we need the ability to add empty trends to a display, to then populate it with attributes.

    With the extensibility feature, it often doesn't make sense to first select an attribute before you can actually drag and drop, or add a symbol to a display. Think of a web page viewer, where the selected attribute is irrelevant.

    You should be able to drap and drop a symbol straight-away, and not have to select an Element or Attribute or Tag first. It would just…

  8. Filtering a collection using an “OR”

    Currently we are able to modify collection criteria to include only those elements with attributes in a given value range, and because we’re able to do this with multiple attributes, we can essentially create an “AND” statement.  We would also like to be able to use this filtering with an “OR” statement (see attached image).

  9. Alert when not the owner (write access) of a display when entering "build mode"

    Often work has been done on a PI Vision display (with a known/published URL) only to realise you were not the owner when hitting the "save" button. A prompt when editing starts, or keeping the save button in the "inactive" state if not the display owner would help prevent this re-work.

  10. PI Vision Page Authoring Tools Improvement

    I noticed quite a number of issues while attempting to author a new PI Vision Page. Here are a list of things that are lacking in PI Vision compared to PI ProcessBook and needs to be included into PI Vision as soon as possible:
    1. Unable to Copy and Paste the Format from one Graphic/ Object to other Graphics/ Objects
    2. Limited Color Options in Format Shape/ Text/ Background/ Display
    3. Unable to Resize Grouped Graphics/ Objects
    4. Unable to set up Layers
    5. Value Text does not reflect Multistate color settings, only the shades behind the Value Text reflect…

  11. Set the size of the display

    A way to set the maximum size of a display, with the number of pixels or inches/centimeters, or even its size based on a common screen display would be really helpful.

  12. Multistate icon set symbol

    Provide a multistate icon set symbol which would provide distinct state indication similar to Excel's Conditional Formatting -> Icon Sets functionality. Example is attached.

    The changing icons are particularly useful to users who cannot distinguish between colors.

    PI Vision currently has target indicators (up and down arrows) to show if a value is above or below target, but this request is to expand on that and in addition to the target indicators, also allow state indicators such as LL/L/H/HH.

  14. PI ProcessBook "Assign symbol to template" option for PI Vision

    As a Coresight user, a feature similar to the "Assign symbol to template" option in ProcessBook would be useful. After grouping objects together, the user can assign the group to a template and be able to drag out this group relative to a different asset.

    This would be very useful in building out displays that have information about various assets on one page.

  15. Hide or Edit Column Headers in Tables

    Table header should be editable. Or at least should be able to hide header.

  18. Allow multistating based on conditions from multiple data items

    As a PI Vision user, I would like to add multistates to my display's symbols that depend on conditions of multiple data items. For example, when the pump status tag has a value of "Active" and the pump flowrate tag has a value less than 10, turn the value symbol red.

  19. Edit a Data Item by Typing or Pasting a Data Item Path

    In addition to the drag-drop option available for attributes, maybe having a textbox functionality that allows us to apply/change the name of the object’s attribute and thus changing the related attribute easily without having to search for it.

  20. Resize uploaded image with define sizing value.

    be able to set sizing of the uploaded image so that every image will have the same standard size and resolution. Eg; Developing HMI screen. So every screen will have the same size and better user experience.

    And like Processbook to be able to fit the bounding rectangle to the image size.
