  1. Replicate the Pi Table functionality previously available in Pi WebParts

    The Pi Table Web Part provided the ability to easily create powerful displays that included Pi Data and relational in a single Element Relative display. For example, you could create a view of an asset's current status, and combine that with defects and work orders.

  2. Preserve Zoom Level on saving a display

    Preserve the zoom level when saving a display so that it opens to that level. This is probably needed per user per device.

    Currently PI Vision will save the Fit All setting, so that the display will always open to fit all contents in the browser window but specific zooms levels are not saved.

  5. Value symbol component arrangement

    At present, if I want the label to be anywhere other than above the value, I must create it as a separate text item. I'd like it to be at leasst as good as in Procesbook where you could specify how the value, label and timestamp were arranged.

  8. Symbol Properties: Set exact symbol size in pixels

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

  9. 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.

  10. Edit attribute path in PI Vision

    When the value of an attribute is hovered over, it shows the path for the attribute. but one cannot edit the value.

    Toby wants to be able to edit the path of an AF attribute to replace the value of that attribute with another one without having to drag the new attribute to replace it current one.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Allow Digital States to skip state numbers

    Currently if you have a digital state set for the following:
    0 = Closed
    1 = Open
    255 = Unknown
    You are required to create a digital state for everything from 2-255. It does not allow non contiguous state sets. This is a problem when using a PI tag that uses this state in AF/PI Vision. Setting an attribute to anything in AF brings the state name correctly into AF, however in PI Vision adding a multistate that uses this attribute the entire list of 256 states is shown.
    An alternative would be allow an excluded digital state name that…

  14. 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).

  16. 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…

  17. Collections: Allow attribute filtering with attributes from different asset types

    Allow filtering of collections using attributes from elements based on different templates. Currently attribute filtering requires that a single asset type be selected and the attribute filter list is restricted to only the attributes from the selected asset type.

  18. 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.

  20. 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”.
