  1. PI Vision Ad Hoc Display Versatility

    Similar to PI ProcessBook Ad Hoc functionality, when right-clicking and selecting attributes to be added to an Ad Hoc display the trend could take up a small pop up window and not the entire page for the Ad Hoc Workspace. Such as a predefined Trend area or a small pop-up window that these Ad Hoc selections would populate.

  3. Ability to see multiple incremental scales in adhoc display

    Right now you can have multiple scales but for all but one scale only the min and max value are displayed on the trend. Would be helpful to have incremental scale values for all scales displayed at the left of the trend. For example in the attached image the orange scale you only see the min and max value whereas for the blue scale you see multiple values.

  4. Ability to add tags to the adhoc workspace (without closing workspace)

    When viewing data in the adhoc workspace there is no way to add additional tags without first closing the adhoc workspace. When you close the adhoc workspace only data items on the current display can be easily added to the adhoc workspace. Would be nice to be able to search additional data items to add to the workspace in case they are not on the existing display.

  5. Adhoc Trends be able to change trace colors

    Be able to change trace colors on adhoc displays, this would be useful where i need to be able to show upper and lower limits in a different color (ie red, yellow) to the process value (ie cyan) the standard colors dont reflect the alarms levels very well

  6. Dynamic representation of PctGood() function in PI Vision

    Looking for the ability to extract percentage good from “Min percent good” value calculated by Value Retrieval Methods analysis for a specified time range and link it to an AF Attribute to display the value in PI Vision. Value can then be recalculated dynamically depending on the time duration configured by the client (PI Vision). Analysis with PctGood() function does not allow ad-hoc time range manipulations by clients.

    Working example: End-user opens a PI Vision display with a fixed start time and end time (midnight to midnight) to visualise “Percent good” for a certain attribute. The quality of the archived…

  7. show details and annotations

    There is a useful function in PI Processbook called show details and annotations. which can show the time-serised data in a window for a tag in trend. Also I can see which two data point is used to calculate the value I point at.

  8. Ability to show values near the pen lines rather than at the top of the trend (adhoc trending)

    Ability to show values in an adhoc trend at the pen line rather than at the top. When comparing a large number of data items it is hard to distinguish the different values when they are all listed at the top of the trend

  12. Better feedback for errors in ad hoc calculations

    Direct quote from customer, "The suggestion is for the ad-hoc calculation parser to highlight where any parsing errors are. Currently it just says there is an error and it often takes a while to find it."

    Currently when clicking the Preview button in the Ad Hoc Calculation UI, we just get the following error, "[-12301] Performance equation parsing error." It would be preferable to have something like the Analysis UI in PSE, which underlines the offending portion of the expression.

  13. Improve ad-hoc calc tool

    The recently added "calculations" could be very useful but in reality is of limited use because it bogs down the system and cannot be used over long periods of time (years). PHD / Uniformance, the tool we used before PI Vision, was easily able to graph complex calculations over many years without issue.

  14. Enable clipboard capture of cursor values

    When I drop a cursor on the trend symbol, I can see the current value at the cursor's timestamp of all trend traces in a small side pop-up. I would like to be able to copy to clipboard these so I can use them in an email, or in another report.

    Now I have to take down by hand these values and manually pass those around, all pronged to errors and cumbersome operation.

  15. Need to be able to trend calculations or constants (limits)

    I cannot reproduce this in PI Vision. I need to be able to add limit lines to trends. I previously did this by adding a PI calculation set at a constant value.

  16. PI Vision URL Parameter for Ad-Hoc Displays to Show Periodic Interpolated Values

    For ad-hoc displays, can we add a URL parameter to indicate a sampling / interpolation duration? We can put in start time and end time, but instead of getting the raw value is it possible to, for instance, request interpolated results at 1h time blocks, similar to the sampled data call in PI DataLink?

  17. Synchronize times on symbols, or not, with one step

    When analyzing an issue, it is helpful to be quickly determine whether all the symbols on a display are using the same time range or not.  For example, one might want to compare values from upstream in the process to values farther downstream and there would be a time offset involved, but one might be comparing similar variables for the same time range, doing a side by side comparison and then the time should be the same for both.

  18. Find data and events when an asset was running

    For assets that aren't always running, it can be hard to find events (EFs) that have happened back in history.

    Provide a way to more easily find these events and/or only show data on trends while the asset was running. (hide time periods).

  19. Support StdDev as a summary statistic in PI Vision trends and ad hoc displays

    The ability to see Std Dev in PI ProcessBook ToolTips is missing in PI Vision. It would be useful in ad hoc displays to be able to quickly add or see the Std Dev without multiple configuration steps.

  20. Improve the experience of sharing ad hoc displays

    When working to resolve a problem in the ad hoc workspace, it should be faster to share the ad hoc display with others via a single click. It would also be useful to be able to launch the ad hoc display in a new tab very quickly.
