  1. Edit rights on home folder

    Possibility to change rights for the home folder.
    Currently, anyone with publisher rights can save and share displays in the home folder, even when they only have write access on the lowest subfolder of a folder. This results in thousand displays in the home folder, making it a mess.

  2. 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.

  3. Snap to Grid pixel size adjustment

    Snap to grid is great, but needs to have a smaller pixel area available down to 1x1 for more intricate display work. I believe the slider only allows down to 10x10 right now. After working on hundreds of displays as a web designer, this would be a huge improvement and time saver for not only processbook to pivision display migration issues but also new and existing update and design. Also suggest the grid size input text box instead of slider for time management and efficiency while working.

  4. PIVision tool for URL re-writes/redirects(301 perm, etc)

    Was surprised to find there is no current way to set custom URLs or set redirects for PIvision displays. We understand there is a display number appended to the URL migrated or created displays.

    After doing hundreds of processbook migrations and updates.
    It would be a huge advantage, not only for migrating old display hierarchies, but also designing new hierarchies and structure for PI vision displays.

    You could develop a tool that could allow the display admin URL re-writing into the ISS host. Like a 301 perm rewrite.

    If you are worried about it breaking any existing migration URL links,…

  5. Line Segment "Snap "Feature

    I would like to see a function that I can toggle on and off. To assist me when I am drawing line segments . Because right now there is no quick way to do that.

  6. Symbols with Different Timestamps

  7. Add new element to group without ungrouping

    It is not possible to add a new element to a group already defined without ungrouping it and then grouping all elements together.

  8. Allow the manipulation of PI Vision Displays using PI Builder

    It would be very beneficial to be able to export the attributes/tags with some simplified symbol column (so you could tell which was which in large displays) in order to update displays as your AF Hierarchy or AF Templates mature.This would also help with many other aspects of building consistent PI Vision displays.
    Another aspect of this might include the multistate associated with the symbol.

  10. Move Fit-All option to checkbox on Format Display

    There is no way to determine if fit all option is on or off, if a display is edited, fit all is reset and most times the display is saved again without fit all. (and you cant just select fit all and resave)

    Move the fit all option to the display format screen as a checkbox and add a fit width check box option also.

    (I hope you will reconsider this idea, since it has been rejected before, it would save my users lots of time and confusion)

  11. Keep time range constant when changing time range in PI Vision

    PI Vision should keep the time range constant when changing the end time in a display. The current behavior (verified with tech support) is:
    - If the end time is * (now), one can type a valid timestamp in the end time box and a start time is calculated based on the current default span, such as -8h.
    - If the end time is not *, and has a timestamp string, when the string is edited and the user hits enter, the edited time is copied to the start time and the end time value prior to editing persists.

  12. Enable adjustable Y-scale for boolean values.

    When comparing multiple on-off Boolean values in Trend symbol, they all overlap over each other. It would be useful to have a setting to be able to adjust the Y-scale height of each bollean values so we can compare them better.

  13. Enable the ability to add a comment or description when saving a display

    It would be good to be able to add a comment/descriptor when saving a PI Vision display. Especially now that PI Vision 2021 is working on saving a display to a file this becomes even more relevant, as we will be able to indirectly create versions of displays.

  14. Customize Right Click Options

    Ability to customize the right click dropdown box. Adding functions that I use frequently would be awesome instead of having to go to the toolbar EVERY SINGLE TIME I want to align the center of 2 or more objects is aggravating.

  15. Allow attribute categories as collection filter criteria

    Increase the possibilities with regard to filtering in collection criteria. In specific i would propose Attribute categories as an efficient way of grouping different asset/template attributes in the same collection.

  17. Add keyboard shortcuts for object resizing

    Add keyboard shortcuts for resizing objects (e.g., embedded images). In PowerPoint, for example, you can resize shapes by holding Shift (or Shift+Ctrl) and using the arrow keys.

  18. Save Snap to Grid Setting

    If the Snap to Grid spacing is adjusted and a display built and saved. When the page is reloaded, the snap to grid spacing is lost and it then becomes difficult to get the spacing 'just so' again to allow for easy display maintenance or modifications.

  20. Objects within SVG file should be detected by PI Vision

    The customer has a complex isometric drawing saved as an SVG file. It contains many objects (i.e., pipe sections, valves, etc.). The SVG file is currently being used as a background image in an existing PI Vision display. The customer would like to assign multi-states to the sub-objects within the SVG file, although it is currently not possible to do so out-of-the-box, as PI Vision treats the SVG and its objects as one image.

    The customer is looking for this feature for the following reasons:
    - It would avoid the need to manually create the complex isometric drawing within PI…
