  2. Table: Event Comparison Table

    Be able to compare attributes from multiple similar events against each other in a table.

    User Story: As a process engineer, Lalit wants to compare attributes from similar events to one another in a table and sort by the columns of the table SO THAT he can use the attribute values to compare the events to one another.

  3. Bar chart and stacked bar chart

    I have summarized energy data for kWh consumption by day for buildings and plant that is written at specific end of shift day week points.

    I'd like to be able to have this display as a stacked bar where the various plant consumption components are shown as a proportion of the bar and the height of the bar is the sum of the components.

    Classic stacked bar chart.

  7. Table: Archived Values

    Provide a symbol in PI Coresight which displays the time and archive values of a data item based on the display's time range.

    Customer Issue: Customer uses PI Coresight to monitor the most recent 100 seconds of data on their production line, which updates every 10 seconds. The process engineers want to be able to see the previous 10 measurements collected. The values on the display need to be clearly visible from a distance and able to display the desired information without interaction. This can currently be done with ProcessBook or DataLink, but a thin client is preferred for these…

  10. Multistate behavior in table object

    Hi!
    It would be great if the table object would be configured to handle multistate.
    Each attribute in the table should be possible to configure to multistate.

    Even better if it some how could be configured from AF, so that you would have a template in AF that are associated with a version of the table object.
    In that case when you pick a attribute thats associated with a template then everything is configured to the corresponding table object.

  11. PI Vision tooltip configuration

    The user would like to have control over the tooltip configuration of the PI Vision symbol. For instance, he would like to show the tag of a PI Point data reference when hovering over a single value from an attribute.

  13. Sort Collection by attribute value

    When creating a collection, would like to sort the collection by a specific attribute value (what is shown in the collection).  For example, a collection of tanks showing percent full.  Would like to sort collection by percent full, to show the most full tanks at the top of the collection.  The Asset Comparision table has this functionality.

  14. Event (EF) Plot / Batch SQC Plot

    Plot for Events (EFs) or Batches are on the x-axis and process value is on the Y axis.

    This might be another variant of a SQC Plot but based on batches/events (in time order) rather than strictly by time.

  15. Gauge: Support Zones / Scale Ranges

    Support zone configuration on gauges so that the user has an indication of whether the attribute is in a good or bad state.

    If an attribute has limits defined for it in PI AF (LO, LOLO, HI, HIHI), the gauge should default to the limits by default.

    It was brought our attention that this suggestion was not fully completed, so I am downgrading the status appropriately. PI Vision 2016 introduced multi-stating of gauge colors using attribute limits however zones/scale ranges have not yet been implemented.

  16. Hover/Mouse Over ToolTip for Hyperlinks and Navigation Links

    As a PI Vision user, it would be helpful to have a ToolTip showing the hyperlink when a Navigation Link is added to an object or symbol. Right now, this only occurs with a Text symbol, but it would be helpful to have this for other symbols, such as a shape or image.

  17. Add "Sequence of Events" Symbol Type

    Add a table symbol which consists of the following 3 columns:

    Tag Name
    Tag Value
    Tag Timestamp (default sort on this column, ascending order)

    This table would consist of a set of tags over a specified time range.

    The purpose of this "Sequence of Events" table is for users to analyze the root cause and order of events that took place for a set of equipment. Typically your symbols in PI Vision and the way Datalink works is that each tag is separated into a separate column or row. The key feature here is to merge the tags into one…

  19. Array Values in PI Vision

    It would be nice to have a possibility to Display AF Array Attribute Values within PI Vision. At the Moment we try to Display the results of a SQL table lookup with one or more results in PI Vision. Due to the dynamic amount of results, it is not possible to use one Attribut per result.
