  1. Add "Autorange" to graph scaling, just like in ProcessBook

    I need to be able to set the upper bound of my PI Vision graph range to the largest value on the graph, all while being able to set the lower bound to zero.

  2. Allow editing of Vision display start time and end time together..

    It would be great if Vision display start time and end time could be configured together. Whenever I change start/end time of a trend, PI Vision immediately requests for data from PIDA even though I haven't finished entering the start/end times.

    For example I have a trend with last 8 hours of data. Then I want to check data back in January 2010. When I enter 1-Jan-2010 into the start time field and click on end time field to set the end time of the trend to 1-feb-2010, PIVision already fires a query to PI Data Archive before I have…

  3. PI Vision display search should return results from subfolders

    With the PI Vision display search bar, the filter will only search among displays that can already be seen in as display thumbnails.

    Searching "within a selected folder" should also include results from any child folders as these are a sub-sets of the parent folder.

    The current behavior where you must already be looking at a display thumbnail to be able to find it is un-intuitive and makes folders a less useful organizing feature

    User Guide:
    Create folders
    https://docs.osisoft.com/bundle/pi-vision/page/create-folders.html
    Search for an existing display
    https://docs.osisoft.com/bundle/pi-vision/page/search-for-an-existing-display.html

  4. Mass copy PI Vision displays between folders

    It would be helpful to mass copy PI Vision displays between folders for different projects. Otherwise, we have to copy one display at a time.
    Obviously, the tags will need reconnected for the copied displays but the value of copy/paste with the display structure will save a lot of time.

  5. Zoom in on a trend under 1 second

    The trend zoom is good functionality to specify time range to show but we cannot select under one second, it means the maximum time range for a trend is 1 sec. Please enhance this zoom functionality to point under 1 second.

  6. Same display names in Home directory

    In Home multiple displays with the same name should be allowed, at least from different owners.

    The message "Display xy already exists" is completely meaningless, because the user may not be able to see displays with the same name of other owners. With 2000 users, duplicate naming is quite likely, which will very often lead to a lack of understanding.

  7. Ability to Click on Text Rather than ">" to see what is in a folder

    Any other program where I navigate in folders, I can click on the folder name to see the sub-folders inside. In PI Vision, the ">" symbol has to be clicked. I have had to remind people multiple times in site training to click the > and not the name. Is there any way to set it up where clicking the name and clicking the ">" have the same result?

  8. Summary Table

    After double clicking to maximize a trend, I'd like to automatically have the display show the Summary Table. Can this be an optional functionality?

  9. Give PI Vision the ability to set a display to be the default page

    Right now this can be only done through HTTP redirection and Osisoft does not officially support this as this can be handled by a third party resource

  10. Overwrite a display in different folder

    In PI Vision - if I use the 'Save As' function to save a display from Folder A to Folder B and that display name already exists in the destination folder - I should be given the option to overwrite the target display if I am the owner of both displays. I think having the warning message 'display already exists' is helpful, however, I should be able to proceed with the overwrite/save.

    If want to stage an update to a display in a limited access folder before copying the update to a public folder I am unable to do so…

  11. collection filter attribute value - failure?

    I want to show all assets in a collection which have the same template and a certain range of the value of a attribute. The selection filter does not work properly!
    The attribute is linked to a PI-tag. When there is no tag linked for certain assets in the template the value 9999 is defined. In the collection I want to filter all with = 9999 so I select attribute < 9999 butno filtering is done. I have tried several similar queries without effect

  12. Improved Display Ownership Changes in PI Vision Display Utility

    Add the ability to replace the domain part of a display owner en masse. Use case: Cross-domain PI Vision migration where the usernames are the same and the domain is different. This should ideally work the same way that the PI Server and AF Server/Database replacement works. Currently, this can be done via PI Vision API, but that requires some level of PowerShell knowledge and ability which many might not have.

  15. Have a fixed start time and a dynamic end time in displays

    I have set up several displays showing a process. I want to see the graph of different attributes showing a fixed start time and the end time should be actual time and updated all 5 seconds.
    At the moment it is:
    Start Time is based on the time interval i set.
    How i would like to have it:
    Start time is a fixed date and time. the interval that is shown will scale up automatically because the end time is set as *

  16. Ability to add a display to favorites from within the display

    Right now, the ability to mark a page as a favorite must be done from the page directory/search. If you are linked to a page or just in a page and want to make it a favorite, you must go to the home page of vision, find that page in the directory, and mark it as favorite there. It would make sense to have an element in the title bar of a page to be able to mark it as a favorite while viewing the display.

  17. Retrieve all symbols used in a PI Vision display

    Would like the functionality to retrieve a list of all symbols used in each PI Vision display or across all displays in the Vision database. This function would be performed either within PI Vision, via the Display Utility or using a Script.

    Additionally, information on what Data Items (PI Points/Attributes) are used in each Vision Symbol could be included.

    Output could be saved as a report.

    Possible use cases:

    • Troubleshooting PI Vision displays
    • Minimizing the use of expensive symbols to improve performance.
    • Evaluating use of custom symbols. Identify those that are not used or only used once and see if…

  18. Make PI Vision Display backup feature optional or customisable within Migration Utility

    Make PI Vision Display backup feature optional or customizable within Migration Utility
    Currently the backup feature is hard coded and everytime we migrate displays, errors get logged in DB.  As we don't have access to perform such backups on external system, such feature should be optional and/or customisable.

  19. PIVision default share configuration

    PIVision allows Administartor to configure default share setup up so regular user does not need config sharing option . For recent PIVision manual, user needs to specify AF identity for sharing from config button every new display is created.

  20. Add an API operation to change PI/AF Servers when exporting/importing displays using the API

    Changing PI/AF Server names is a supported operation when exporting/importing displays using the Display Utility.

    Now if we want to perform this task via the API we need to perform a search/replace task on our own before importing the display at the destination.

    This is very cumbersome for a supported operation. We should be able to use an API function that would perform this PI/AF server permutation using GET/SET calls directly to ease the process.
