  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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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)

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. EF Template Attributes Displayed in Event Table Columns

    Allow for display of EF Template specific attributes on an Events Table when a specific template is selected. Much like how specific attribute data can be pulled through DataLink, but only when a specific template is selected in the Explore criteria.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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).

  15. Event Comparison - Link secondary reference elements to Attribute list and display

    Currently, the attribute window in the Event Comparison displays shows a link from the EF to the primary reference element, and then drill downs to attributes of that element.  Attributes selected through this window would dynamically link other EFs displayed in the trend to their respective reference element.

    We would like the attribute display to allow multiple reference elements to be accessible through the attribute window, not just the primary reference.

  16. Move forwards or backwards in time on the Event Details page

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

  17. Have the event frame view as a symbol

    Having the event frame view as a separate type of graph, means that it is not possible to add in contextual value or to set up comparisons very easily. It would be great to have the an event view symbol. It would be configured similar to how collections are configured, but except of filtering on assets, you would filter on event frames.

  18. Customize Event Frame Details Window

    As a user of PI Vision I would like to be able to add a customizable Event Details Hyperlink to a notification. Instead of having the trend with all of the related attributes underneath I would just like the display to show the trend, or at least have the attribute tables minimized.

  19. Event Details Hyperlink Non-Numeric Tag in Trend

    As a user of PI Vision, I would like to be able to view the digital tags associated with a notification on a trend when I click the Event Details Hyperlink on my Notification email. Right now only numeric attributes are can be added to the trend but I have attributes (related to my notification) with several states that I would like to view on a trend.

  20. 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.
