  1. Trend Cursor - Slow Data Values

    I've the noticed when adding a trend cursor, that the data values take a very long time to show up. This happens instantaneously in Procesbook, but takes 10-15 seconds in PI Vision, which doesn't make the tool very friendly to use.

  2. Provide option to add multiple tabs in a PI Vision Display

    As a PI Display Author I want to have the option to create different tabs in a Display. Each tab could have different content in the same Display ID. This would allow us to use the limited space of a web page.
    setttings like search selected element and so on should be set for all tabs as it is for the display.

  3. Trending data by other Indices, Vertical trends, Trending by Depth

    O&G customers that are looking at creating analysis applications for their drilling operations, would like to have an option to create vertical trends that would allow them to analyze their drilling operation by depth.

    Trending by another index other than time. For example Oil & Gas Drilling operations.

  7. Provide a 'Description' textbox for Display Settings.

    Dear Devs. Currently, we have a few options for Displays; Display Name, Keywords, Display Owner and 'Share With'.

    I'd like to propose an additional setting in the form of a large text field for 'Description' say, 500 or 1000 characters.

    This would allow Display authors to include meta-data for their displays. Things like a description of what the purpose of the display. Who the intended author is. Who the Business owner of the display should be etc etc. Just a place where authors can add extra detail that may be required.

    Right now I have to do this in an…

  8. Allow locking/anchoring of symbols.

    Ability to lock Symbols in place so that they don't shift when I try to select them. This doesn't always happen, but when it does it's pretty annoying. I should be able to right click and lock/unlock a Symbol so that it doesn't accidentally get moved around.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. Allow a screen to be placed in more than one display folder

    I would like the ability to put a display into more than one display folder. For example, I have a folder for 'Electrical'. However, if I want to create a folder for 'Executives', I could not include a screen already in 'Electrical'. My only option would be to create a copy of the display, which would mean needing to make sure both are updated any time a change is made.

  14. File data type attribute is supported just by PI System Explorer. It would be nice to have Pi coresight to support that also

  15. Add more tags to one trend for PDI files in Coresignt

    "Add more tags to one trend for PDI files in Coresignt"

    I am interested when i see one *.pdi display in Coresight to put in context the tags evolution. Now i can see only one , the selected tag.
    For this reason to make the process easier it is better to can select lat say 10 tags jut by click and open in an trend directly from *.pdi file.
    In Process book this is possible by VB macro.

  19. Add radial gauge manual rotation to align needle direction

    Add functionality to radial gauge so that the gauge can be rotated to align the needle in a desired direction. For instance, individually rotate a gauges so that the desired needle position will be straight up. That way it is easy to see any deviations.

  20. Allow PB buttons to link PI Vision displays in kiosk mode automatically

    Add some additonal funcionality into PB buttons when you click on Display Search to integrate with PI Vision if you want to export them. For example, in a book, when you use Display Search to link the displays inside this book, PB uses internal code as <LOCAL>:DisplayName, using this, when you export the PB Book to PI Vision, the Book on PI Vision automatically set the button links to navigate between the displays. The same concept using kiosk mode will be a great advance to PB Users because we could add kiosk mode visibility to PI Vision from PB Displays…
