  1. Event Details: Allow scale configuration

    We are using EventFrames to catch Alarm states. Therefore we compare measurements to Limits we created in AF. Unfortunately in the PI Coresight EventFrames Display the trend always configures its y-axis automatically. So all the Limits are on the same line and you can not easily see which Limit raised the alarm or how the measurement value changed between the limits during the EventFrame. It would be nice if the y-axis would be scalable manually (single scale, multi-scale, etc).

  2. Events table: search for event frames by asset root path (including all descendants)

    It would be useful to be able to configure the events table symbol in PI Vision to search for all event frames that reference elements below a certain root. This would allow you to see all EFs related to a certain branch of your AF hierarchy very quickly.

  3. Event Frame in time line form

    To have a new symbol, which has the similar function as Event Table. Instead of table symbol, hopefully we can have bar chart kind of symbol instead, as shown in the attached pic. It will much cleaner that way and let user have a better view of the events happened for the past shift.

  4. Ability to change acknowledge button color

    We are using event frames as alarms and in the event tables having the acknowledge button being green indicates there is no issue, it would be nice to be able to change the color to red or base it on how critical the event is.

  5. Support exporting data from Events Table symbol

    As a PI Vision user, when I use the export data option for display, data from all symbols should be exported. In addition to the currently-supported time series data, this should also include Event Frames from the Events Table symbol.

  6. Highlight traces on a trend from Event multiselection

    When a user multiselects events / child events, highlight the appropriate time period/traces on the trends for the event. This could apply to both a single time period trend and an overlay trend.

  7. Filter Events Table by Severity

    Would like to be able to filter Events Table using "severity" column, whether above a certain "severity" (>Warning) or selecting individual severity (Warning OR Critical)

  8. golden batch designation for EF

    When pinning an event frame to create a golden batch set a property on the event frame so that the user can use other tools like DataLink to find golden batches that were defined in PI Vision.  Nedd to be able to also put some kind of identifier on a golden batch to tell it what it refers to since I can have many golden batches for different recipes.  One custmer I worked with recently had over 100 recipes.

  10. Allow text formatting and to left center text on events table

    As now the text is aligned in center! It does not look good!
    It should be possible to choose this for individual fields in the events table.

  11. Fix EF attribute values to time range of the Event Frame

    Fix the time range of all symbols to the Event Frame time range when selecting attributes from a specific Event Frame.

    Customer Issue: When the customer drags Event Frame attributes onto a blank Coresight display and selects any symbol, the time range of the symbol is not fixed to the Event Frame time range. When the user moves the time bar at the bottom of the screen or lets the display update on its own, the values of the Event Frame symbol change with time.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 120126.

  13. Multistate behaviour for event table row background and text

    As now it is just event severity that gives different colours. It should be possible multistate the background color and text for events table rows to use the standard colours in a Alarm list as it is in the plant DCS Alarm list.
    Active alarms with red background, Not active and not acknowledged is yellow background. Critical events is blue. The rest is grey.
    This function should be possible to use with multistate and have the controlling attribute in the event frame.

  14. Alignment of text in events table is inconsistent

    Alignment of text in events table is inconsistent. Event frame table always shows text centre aligned e.g. Name, start time,endtime etc and column names are always left aligned

  15. Event Details: Move forwards or backwards in time

    As an engineer, I would like the ability to move the trend time range forwards and backwards in time on the Event Details page so I can investigate what happened before and after an event.

  16. Integrate Video data with Event Frames (EF)

    Be able to view data in the context events and integrate video data with the start of event frames (play back the video of the machine failure overlaid with the trend data).

  17. Navigation links on Events Table symbol

    As a user of the Events Table symbol, I would like to be able to add navigation links to the Events Table that would act like other symbols that support navigation links. Double-clicking or right-clicking on an event in the table would let you set the current display's asset (for other symbols on the same display) or open a different display with the selected event's asset. It would also make sense to set the display's time context to the event's time range.

  19. Event Detail Trend Time Buffer

    Ability to set a default lookback and look forward period on event detail trend. if the event is 30 minutes long and my lookback and lookfoward period is 30 minutes then the trend timeline would be [event start time]-30m to [event end time]+30m. This gives the user context to what happened leading up to the event and after the event in the trend.
