  2. Context related images

    Different assets with the same template can be visually different.
    I would like the "Image" symbol to be able to use the URL of an image as defined in an attribute of an element to decide what image sholud be shown.

  3. Table of data from an external database

    As a PI Vision user, I want to view a table of data from an ODBC data source on a display alongside my PI data so that I can see related information from other systems of record.

  4. Stacked Y-axis Event Frame Gantt symbol

  5. More flexible data table/matrix

    I need a more flexible table tool where I can decide exactly what goes in each cell. They could come from related attributes or from PI tags, and each box in the table shows something separate.  Here is a screen shot of what I would like, but currently have had to create by brute force in ProcessBook.

  6. Adding / Configuring the Marker Size/Format in XY Plot

    Adding / Configuring the Marker Size/Format in XY Plot.
    Having a lot of markers in the XY plot the point cloud gets unusable because of Marker Size is to big
    So either definition of own smaller Marker ( hair cross - single pixel ...) or an option to change marker size would Help

  8. Load Duration Curve (LDC) in PIVision symbol

    Symbols in PIVision for displaying load duration curves based on PItags.

    I have created two PI vision symbols for LDC with using extensibility. (I have modified the xy-plot symbol).
    The first one creates LDCs for each series dropped on to chart. Different periods are set using the custom dates feature.

    The second one creates LDCs for the same PItag where the periods of data is given by a PItag (ie the Pitag holds maintenance dates).

    I will provide my code to OSIsoft on request.

    Wikipedia gives this definition of LDC: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loaddurationcurve
    Search Duration Curve on google for more…

  9. Exporting table symbols directly (as it is) to Microsoft Excel or Word

    Having a table symbol in pi vision, the customer would like to export that table directly (as it is) to Microsoft Excel or Word rather than using Export data.

  10. Easier multistating of grouped symbols

    As a PI Vision display creator, I would like to be able to easily multistate objects after I have grouped them together. This way all of the objects can have the same conditions for multistating (e.g. multiple adjacent sections of piping in a process diagram, or multiple adjacent electrical components in an electrical diagram).

    Currently, it is necessary to individually configure the same exact mulitstating behavior on each separate symbol in the group.

  11. Configure regression line format on XY Plot

    As a display author, I would like to configure the format of a regression like (e.g color and line weight) so that the regression line stands out from the points on an XY Plot.

  12. y-axis scale options

    Currently the y-axis options are Auto, Database, and Custom. The problem with Database and Custom is that they are static and fail to capture unusual events outside the normal expected range. The problem with Auto is that during normal operating times it tends to zoom too far in, thus highlighting some normal fluctuations. A combination of Custom/Database and Auto would be very useful. Allowing the axis to expand during the unusual time frames but then restricted it to only shrink back to the Custom/Database settings. Thus preserving the original context.

  13. Asset Comparison Table does not show "No Data" when assets are missing attributes

    As a user of PI Vision, I would like my asset comparison table objects to not show "No Data" when I compare differing assets that do not necessarily share all of the listed attributes.  I would rather they appear as blank boxes as it more appealing to the user and gives them a better understanding of the actual asset behavior.

  15. Editor improvements


    1. I would like to be able to mark multiple symbols by drag and drop, now the only way is Ctrl+Click

    2. I use Ctrl+Drag to copy symbols in ProcessBook as I find it quicker and more precise when adding new objects to the display.

    3. Quick edit the tag/attribute on a value symbol: Change the tag/attribute on a value instead of having to add a new value from right hand menu

    4. Sizing: It would have been great having a sizing toolbar to set an absolute size, now it’s difficult to add two symbols with the same size

    5. Text alignment: I would love…

  17. Multistate driven from Event Frame context

    Drive a multistate symbol on a display from an Event Frame context. For example, turn the circle red if a 'Downtime' event on the asset is currently active.

  19. Calendar view symbol for viewing data

    A tool that I have had many uses for is a calendar view tool that shows attributes, tags and the ability to MultiState them in a properly formed calendar.

    Attached is an example that we had to build with some other web controls talking to PI Web API.  I have several cases where this type of display tool in Vision is required.

  20. Shading in Trend Symbol

    With future tags and predictive data growing since PI 2015, it is good that PI Coresight can accept future tags.

    However, rarely do these data come as a discrete value. They usually have an associated prediction interval/uncertainty. For that reason, I put forward this enhancement request:

    The trend symbol needs to be able to accept an upper and lower bound and display a shaded region. E.g. https://www.knowledgeminer.eu/img/composite_2.png
