  1. PI Vision Display Utility - Allow Multiple AF or Data Archive Mappings during Display Import

    Right now, it is only possible to import a display with one AF or Data Archive server remapping. I would like the option to import a display that has multiple AF Servers in the source and remap each of them to new destination servers.

  3. Pin a PI Vision display in a display folder

    When creating several dashboards in the display folder on the PI Vision Home Page, i find it useful to have the ability to pin or highlight one display as my "Home Dashboard". Currently, displays are sorted depending on last used and i would need to search for the home display to find it

  4. Add additional columns to the PI Vision Display Utility to provide additional display information

    Sometimes, when migrating displays using the PI Vision Display Utility, there are displays with the same name from the same user. It would be helpful to have additional display information to help determine which displays to migrate.

  5. PI Vision Display Utility: allow changes to the PI AF hierarchy when migrating displays

    If we have AF content in a test AF environment, and then we build a PI Vision display on top of that in a test environment, we have a need to migrate the AF content to a different AF hierarchy in Production. The PI Vision Display Utility is clear in the Live Library documentation that this is not allowed at this time - you may only change AF server and/or the AF database name. We would like the ability to change AF hierarchy during a display migration as well.

  6. Provide a checkbox for auto resize

    I would like a checkbox on the top of the display when editing to select auto display resize, a lot of times i forget to click resize before saving and of course then it doesn't do it

  8. Tool to list AF Identities that all displays have been shared with

    Provide a native tool to list the AF Identities that each shared display has been shared with. This is useful to ensure that intended user access settings are not lost upon setting up a PI Vision server, mapping users to AF identities, and setting up User Access Levels.

  9. For the error messages displayed, it can be made a bit more explanative

    In the PIVISION display, when errors like attribute not found are recived, it becomes difficult to point out what the error exactly means or is reffering to which attribute.

    If there could more information like attribute name, or path or some more description which make troubleshooting more easier

  10. Choosing a directory for saving my displays

    Add the ability to save my displays on my "W" Drive so I don't have to wade through all the junk in the current directories and I can easily find the data I want to view or save.
    My current options seem to be "Coresight Displays" or "RP Displays"
    I want to navigate to me own directory and save my displays there.

  11. Text alignment in tables

    Customer would like to see if the display alignment of text based information in a column can be modified or make it default to be aligned from the left-hand side in the new PI Vision release, which is a common practice for other text based displays.

  12. Provide mechanism to delete displays in bulk right in Vision

    PI Vision has a built-in mechanism to delete folders, but not their contents. Contents are moved to Home. Additionally, one can select all the contents of a folder, but cannot delete; only move.

    Please add the ability to delete contents in bulk either by selecting specific displays or as an option when deleting a folder. It is acceptable, if not expected, that the delete ability is restricted to files owned by the current user.

    Yes, files can be deleted in bulk using the PI Vision Display Utility, but not everyone has access to it. I don't. And when using the…

  13. When a user has only Read permissions to all PI Vision display folders, "Save As" gives an undescriptive dialog box

    As a PI Vision Admin with 2000 PI Vision users, the unclear dialog box when saving displays has resulted in several Help Desk tickets.

    Currently, when the user has Publisher permissions and Write access to any display folder, the "Save As" dialog box shows the folders and allows users to select which folder to save the display. When the user has Publisher permissions and only Read access to the display folders, the "Save As" dialog box is not descriptive, leading to confusion. For these users, the display gets saved to the Home page.

    I would like users with Publisher permission…

  15. Trend Scale : minimum set to zero when derived template used

    We are using PI Vision to display dashboards for our dams around the state. Due to different level measurement systems used for the different types of dams, derived templates are used. Hence, ALL levels/level types can be placed on the one graph and only those that have data for that dam type are displayed. No problem.

    However, when viewing a dam level trend from the base template, the graph minimum always reverts to zero; as there's no derived template attribute to use max/min traits/limits for. If NOT using derived template levels in the trend graphic, then the max/min traits are…

  16. Ability to Change AF Elements shown on an Existing Display

    We have a display with 8 AF elements. We would love the ability to change the display to show a subset of those elements with the user being able to control this. Perhaps a click or right-click of an element takes it off the trend and then when necessary this can be added back.

  17. Option to store the (trends)displays to the users’ desktop which is currently limited to store in the PI VISION server

    There should be an option to store the (trends)displays to the users’ desktop. That will resolve the storage issue for the trends of the few hundred users in our refinery to store their trends/displays for their own usage. Common displays could be stored thru server storage
    It is a very essential feature and it is to be included ASAP.

  20. Display Scroll

    I often have very full display windows, leaving little room to add new trends. Why can't I scroll down like in Process Book to creak some space for the new trend?
