  1. Hide or Edit Column Headers in Tables

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

  2. Access Vision Displays By Name Instead of ID

    When migrating displays from one environment to another using the Vision display utility there is no guarantee the ID will remain the same in the destination environment. Since Vision displays can only be linked to via ID, all links in both Vision and ProcessBook files would need to change. This significantly complicates the migration process and makes it very error-prone.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Move element through vertical or horizontal axis

    Possibility to move an element through a vertical or horizontal axis, for example when pressing the SHIFT key. Maybe it can be considered as a snap-to-grid feature.

  7. 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.

  8. Specify precise XY Coordinates for a symbol

    When arranging symbols on a display, it would be useful to be able to specify the XY coordinates for the symbol to aid in precise placement of the symbol on the display.

  9. It would be extremely useful if Vision had a way to get a large number of results into a symbol in a quick and efficient manner.

    It would be extremely useful if Vision had a way to get a large number of results into a symbol in a quick and efficient manner. With a search that returns a large number of results, the Assets pane splits the results into pages of 50 items each. If there are 1000 points one wants to get into a symbol like the Asset Comparison, you have to go page, by page, by page, 20 times, selecting all points on each page. It is very time consuming.

  10. PI Vision 2017 Can the Table / Comparison Table rows lock as an option

    Need the Asset Table & Comparison Asset Table to have the option to lock the current select rows.  So that they don't get resorted when users click any of the table headers.  The reason this is mentioned, there maybe other multi state visuals associated to a row.   See attached file for an example.

  11. Dynamically create symbols for all attributes of an asset in a particular attribute category

    Create a new type of collection symbol that contains a symbol (e.g., gauge) for each of the attributes of the currently selected asset or only the attributes belonging to one or more attribute categories. One use case is to use attribute categories defined in AF as collection criteria in PI Vision; then symbols for attributes that do not exist on a particular asset do not show up in the collection instead of showing the symbol with “No Data”.

  15. Set the default display name when Saving

    When a user Saves a display, default the name of the display based on the Element Context or Template. For example, "Mine Truck Display" or "Mine Truck 1 Display".

  16. 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.

  17. Add ability to sort attributes by name in PI Vision

    When looking at Attributes, they are sorted by Category. With hundreds of attributes, sometimes it seems more convenient to find an attribute quick Alphabetically. Provide two checkboxes to the right of the ATTRIBUTES header. Alphabetical or Category.

  18. Allow embedded images to be locked/anchored in place

    Allow embedded images to be locked/anchored in place to avoid them accidentally being moved while the display is being edited.

  20. Filter collections and events by limit attributes

    Instead of filtering collections with criteria like - "tell me all reactors over 200 degrees" as it stands now, make it where the collection, event frame table, or whatever we are looking at be filtered by "tell me all reactors over temperature|hi limit"
