  1. Stacked y-axis on Event Details trend

    As an engineer, I would like the ability to show the Event Details trend with a stacked y-axis to provide an alternative and clearer view of my data so that I can compare attributes during the event duration without the trend lines overlapping.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Set default search criteria for Event Frames

    I would like to make possible to set default search criteria for Event Frames. Every time I have to specify the database, time range, etc. so a predefined configuration for the most used criteria would be helpful.

  9. Grouping and showing the event frame attribute

    RIght now I am not able to filter and group the attribute from event frame, I need to show on the trends and hide others. It would be nice if we can pick and sort the attributed of event frames to be displayed on trend.

  10. Add functionality to send a Event frame to SAP PM or any other system

    I want to be able to send a event frame to other system. It would use a template that would be configurable. Just by pressing button in the event details pane.
    This function could be named "Actions"  and could be fully configurable to even create a list in PI Vision that would summarize what ever your need is.

  11. Allow setting of server-level default for Event Frame search refreshes

    As a PI Vision admin, I would like to set a default for the automatic checks for Related Events. In PI Vision 2017 R2, the setting defaults to Off after an initial search. Although the setting is persisted for displays, it is inconvenient to have to toggle this setting on each newly created display. Since there are no performance issues with Event searches on my system, I want PI Vision to always check if there are Related Events.

  12. Visualize the State of an Event Frame Generation Analysis

    As a PI Vision display author, I would like to configure my display to show the status (In Progress event = True/No active events = False) of an Event Frame Generation Analysis so that end users of the display can see if there is an active excursion event on the asset of interest.

  16. Change Asset on compared similar event frames display

    If I have multiple elements all using the same event frame template I'd like to be able to compare similar events for an asset then switch to a different asset without having to go back to the first display.
    I.E. my display has multiple assets and I can change asset using the drop down box at the top of the screen which then lists events for that particular asset. From there I can right click and select Compare Similar Events By Type which opens a new display locked to the chosen asset. I can save this Compare Similar Events display…

  18. Be able to attach multiple files to an event frame

    As a PI Vision user I would like to be able to attach multiple event annotation files, so I no longer need to replace the existing one with the other file that I want to attach.

  19. Visual cue when event frames are available in the Events pane

    As a PI Vision user, I would like to see if Event Frames are available for my display without clicking on the Events tab. This feature would show me that older event frames can be observed in the events pane. This feature would be different than the blue circle that only shows up when new events appear.

    Alicia Coppock responded

    This functionality is still available in PI Vision however, the default behavior was changed in PI Vision 2017 R2. The automatic refresh of the events pane is now disabled by default for new PI Vision displays.

    To enable the automatic refresh of the events pane for a PI Vision display, you can check the “automatically refresh the list” option on the events pane. Saving the display after selecting this option will save this selection with the PI Vision display.

  20. Drop-down menu of an attribute's possible values within the period to filter Event Frames based in PI Vision

    When comparing events, it would be handy to be able to be able to filter selected eventframes based on an attribute's value.
    It is currently possible but you have to already know what are the possible values.
    What would be great would be to be able to select which attributes you want to use as filters, and be able to select which values you want to keep, updating the event frame comparison on the fly.

    A bit like what Excel's Pivot tables / graphs allows.
    Regards,
