  1. Sort displays in a different way (e.g. by name/title) other than by last time accessed

    PI Vision puts the most recently accessed display on the top. I would like to sort the displays by name/title (in alphabetical order).

  2. Collection template and instances

    It would be great to be able to define a "collection template" and use "instances" of that in different displays. If the Template is modified, all Instances are modified too.
    That feature is already done in AF with template and elements.
    The logical consequence would be to have that in PI Vision too.
    I use a certain collection many times by copying and pasting it and adjusting the collection criteria for each. If i need to modify the collections, i either need to do it for each manually or modifying one and copy paste them all over again. Both is…

  3. Display Navigation by AF Hierarchy

    Have an asset tree view to enable a user to browse / navigate the AF hierarchy tree, click on an element, and see the displays related to that element so that plant floor staff can easily navigate to their specific unit of interest by clicking an asset to open the relevant display.

  4. Fully customisable Homepage/Landing Page

    A Homepage/Landing page that we can place navigation buttons on is a much nicer user experience than browsing folders to find a display.  While the planned folder structure of organising displays is better than what is currently offered, and there are a couple of Homepage "ideas" already posted, they don't really have a clear idea of what they want. A user friendly way of navigating the hundreds of pages and trends that we have is required.  Currently 300 or so pages and probably more again in trends.  See attachment as an example.

  5. Show a Tabular View of Displays

  6. Replace values with Drag and Drop - Previous Functionality Lost

    The previous version of Coresight allowed users to choose a new asset from the asset tree and drag it onto the screen to either add new values, or replace the previous values. This was very beneficial, however the 2016 version does not provide this option it appears.

    Can we get that functionality back? I'd like to pull a new asset from the left and be prompted to either replace values or add it to the existing screen. Thank you!

  7. Improved filtering options in PI Vision Display Utility

    In addition to being able to filter and sort by display name and owner, several other fields might be considered as well. For example, date last accessed, date last modified, and date created. These fields would be useful to include in case a user wanted to manage/remove only displays that are no longer used. I'm certain there are plenty of other categories to include that would make Vision Display Utility even more robust and user-friendly, especially when making changes in bulk.

  8. 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.

  9. Use PI Vision Display Utility to Manage PI ProcessBook Displays

    It would be nice to to be able to use PI Vision Display Utility to manage imported PI ProcessBook displays. Currently it only supports native displays.

  10. How to share with other Groups in PI Vision display

    Current status:
    For example:
    username: abc
    if abc is mapped to PI identity called A, then abc can only share display with this identity
    if you want to share with AF identity called B, then abc needs to be mapped to B identity
    I would like directly share display with other identily,it doesn't need to
    be mapped to specific identity

  11. Provide a way to manage links used in many displays

    Provide a way to update links used in multiple displays, either with a way of bulk editing them or by allowing users to specify a variable in links that can be updated.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Expose display hierarchy in run mode to help navigate between linked displays

    If a display contains navigational links to other displays it would be nice to see this hierarchy and be able to easily switch between linked displays.

  15. Change display to owner who isn't already listed

    As a Vision admin, I would like to be able to reassign a display's ownership to anyone in the company.  Right now, you can only assign displays to people who have already created a display.  Our security is based on Windows Active Directory.  I should be able to assign any display to anyone in the active directory.  Just like I can search Active Directory when mapping people to Identities, I should be able to pull up the AD in the Display Utility or the Admin page.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.
