  1. 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…

  2. Event Comparison: Table of events

    Allow adding a table to event comparison displays so that different information for each event can be displayed (for example recipe, cell-clone, ...). This would allow this information to be available similar to how it is displayed in the search results in BatchView

  3. Add RootPath functionality to Event Frame Table

    I would like the ability to leverage the RootPath URL parameter to return all event frames tied to child elements of the selected asset. Currently, this seems to work only if the display is created against an asset with all of the same child element names as the context-switched element. I would like this to work for any set of child elements regardless of the child element names.

  4. Default time range for Event Frame trend

    Set the default start time for all EF trends to be 5 minutes before the EF start time and make it configurable. Use case is attached.

    Root cause EF are of no value here unless the default view when you first view the event is the start time of the trend is the start time of the root cause EF. In that case, the root cause EF overrides the default start time offset mentioned above. Also format it so the user can see the start of the event on the trend.

    Sometimes, an EF triggers when a condition has been…

  5. PIM batchview functionality in PI Vision PLEASE

    In event frame view, gives back those spectacles from PIM .. the ones where you can highlight all the batces in one go and then "show" or "hide" - just by clicking on the specs. You guys can come and see how we work with batch data if you like. Give us back all the previous functionality we had in PIM Batch view.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Hiding default attribute value in PI Vision Events pane

    I would like hide the default attribute value in the PI Vision events pane. Currently, the event frames are returned in event pane with their name and default attribute value in parenthesis. There is no way to change or hide the attribute value in events pane.

  9. Apply a time range that includes both the parent and child event frame

    Right-clicking either the parent or child event frame provides the option to "Apply Time Range" (attachment).  When selected, the time range then shifts to match the parent or child event.

    In cases where the child event can occur before the parent event, the ability to select a time range that encompasses both the parent and child event can be valuable.

  10. apply event time range to pi vision display to show time before and after event.

    We have events of short duration and often use the "apply time range" option from the events table or events search in Pi Vision. We then have to manually adjust the time frame in PI Vision to be able to see a wider time range and understand what happened before the event. It would be really useful to be able to have a configurable time frame that PI Vision uses to show x minutes before and x minutes after the event when using "apply time range".

    This functionality would also be useful on the event event details page.

  11. Add option to select dynamic values in Advanced Asset Search Criteria in Events table

    Add option to select dynamic values (from attribute references) in Advanced Asset Search Criteria in Events table.
    Attribute1 = Attribute2, not just Attribute1 = value.

    Ability to configure trace line style, weight, and color for traces on event comparison trends. Color should be able to be based on attributes and style/weight should be able to be based on event or vice versa.

  15. Specify time range in EF table as tag

    I would like in the EF table not to specify the exact time as Time Range but also to choose the tag so that it would depend on its value

  16. Improve Event Frame Search

    User interface to search/utilize Event Frames is not intuitive. Select template, category is not easy to work with. BatchView search had a better look and feel, was simpler to use

  17. Add the Event Details Hyperlink to the EventFrame Table.

    It would be great if the Event Details Hyperlink for an Event Frame be included in the Event Frames Table so it is available when running reports (e.g. SRSS).

  18. Allow PI Vision's Event Frame Search to work with collections and dynamic search criteria

    I want to see if there is event frames for each attribute in a PI Vision collection. However as soon i am converting a single object to a collection it doesn't list any event frames.

    I have been told this has been designed to work like that, but this functionality would be very useful for us.

  19. Alarms/Shutdowns

    Having the ability to view alarms/shutdowns and status' on the trends would be valuable in troubleshooting. For instance; currently you can see the unit shut down but do not know why.
