  1. Multistate: Make visible/invisible based on data item value

    Change graphics based on a data item value. For example enhance the multistate functionality so that is it possible to make a symbol visible when a tag/attribute value is equal to 1 and invisible when equal to 0 (or another condition).

  2. Multistate: Change text color

    In multistate, we are able to change background color.
    We would like to be able to change text (letters, words) colors for text and value symbols with multistate.

  4. Trend: Allow custom titles

    Allow specifying plot titles for trend symbols, similar to how ProcessBook allows specifying a plot name.

  5. XY Plot

    Support an XY plot that is able to visualize data in another dimension other than time. 

    User story:  As a process engineer, I want to trend one attribute against another (like depth) SO THAT they can visualize the data in context of the other attribute rather than by time.

    Need in Coresight XY plotting abilities : mainly like in processbook + overlays of design/signature curves from AF tables. In addition overlays of differents XY curves from event frames would be great. This is really something missing to Coresight to be able to monitor pumps, compressors,…

    The PI Vision development team has completed work on the XY Plot in PI Vision 2017 R2. The XY Plot is now out of CTP and has improved performance, an updated configuration experience, and new formatting options. Upgrade to PI Vision 2017 R2 to take advantage of this and other key new features. You can read about what’s new in PI Vision 2017 R2 in the release announcement: https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/Releases/RL01278

  6. Number Formatting for Value

    It would be really useful to have a format definition for a number shown in the value symbol, e.g. according to Microsoft conventions ( https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/0c899ak8(v=vs.110).aspx ).

    Examples: the value 1234.5678 displayed using various formatting definitions:
    "#####" --> 1235
    "#####.#" --> 1234.6

  7. Trend: Configure Multiple Scales

    I would like to set the scaling for the y-axis on the trend instead of auto scaling everywhere so that I can view my data exactly how I'm used to seeing it.

    Configure it so that it's not dependent on a data item configuration.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 73063.

    A number of trend configuration enhancements are included in PI Coresight 2016 R2. These enhancements include:
    - Set the Y scale on a per data item basis
    - Set the color, thickness, and line style for a trace line
    - Control the list order of data items in the legend
    - Set the foreground and background color for the trend

  8. Dashboard or watchlist (in a table)

    This would be something similar to the existing MS SharePoint PI Table Web Part. It would be great to see those assets in trouble or meeting a certain criteria (for example, using filters). Similar to the Table Web Part, being able to see the current state as a multi-state (for example, all assets in table, those with a red indicator are in trouble). Tables make good sense for dashboards or watchlists, common needs in condition monitoring or asset health (likely the most common use case for PI). The ability to drill into the next level of the hierarchy with a…

    The PI Vision development team has completed work on a new Asset Comparison Table in PI Vision 2017 that allows you to generate a table of assets (rows) and attributes (columns) which can be populated dynamically based on search and filter criteria. This table can also be used with the Drill-in Navigation feature of PI Vision 2017 to link to another display from the Asset Comparison Table with the asset context of the selected row. Upgrade to PI Vision 2017 to take advantage of this and other key new features.

  9. 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.

    In PI Vision 2019, navigation links are now more discoverable on a display. When hovering over a symbol with a navigation link, the mouse cursor will change to indicate that there is a link and the symbol’s tooltip will display the configured hyperlink.

    Navigating is now done using a single-click instead of a double-click for all symbols except for the trend, where a double-click is still required so that single-click trend interactions (trend cursor, highlighting a trace) are still possible.

  10. Events Table / Events Dashboard

    Support a table that can show event frame data on a process display.  For example, "show me all of the downtime events for the past 24 hours in a table". 

    The table might be sorted by different columns such as severity, links to Event Details page, and acknowledgement status as well.  See attached picture for one possible idea.

    The PI Vision development team has completed work on the Events Table in PI Vision 2017 R2. The Events Table is now out of CTP and includes the ability to add a Reason Code column based on the Event Frame ‘Reason’ attribute trait in AF. Users can edit the reason code and acknowledge Event Frames directly from the table or navigate to the Event Details page to investigate further.

    Upgrade to PI Vision 2017 R2 to take advantage of this and other key new features. You can read about what’s new in PI Vision 2017 R2 in the release announcement: https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/Releases/RL01278

  14. Make XY-Plot available for collections

    Most symbols can be dynamically organized into collections, which is very handy for comparing assets of different sites, where the number of assets vary.
    The XY-Plot does not support this function at the moment.

  15. Use AF attribute traits to set symbol scale or limits

    As a PI Vision user, I would like to have the option to set the scale or limits of any symbol based on the attribute traits defined in AF. When the symbol contains multiple attributes, it would be useful to be able to select only one attribute to define the scale of the symbol.

    PI Vision currently supports this functionality. When the ‘database’ option is selected for a symbol scale, if the attribute has Min and Max traits, the traits will automatically be used to define the scale on the PI Vision symbol.

  16. Trend: Average/Min/Max value line

    After PI Coresight upgrade, average values are not available in trends. It is only available in Table format. Appreciate if you could re-instate the average/min/max value lines in trend.

  17. Table: Allow single value trend

    As now if you click on a single row in a table that has multiple values, all values will show in the new trend.
    It would be prefferable if only one value or selected valus would show up.

  18. Multistate Configuration should show the values defined for the limits besides the traits (Maximum, HiHi, Hi, Lo, etc..).

    For multistate configuration with AF limits, the customer would like to see the values defined for the limits besides the traits (Maximum, HiHi, Hi, Lo, etc..).

    In previous versions the limit trait values were shown in the tooltip if you hovered over the name shown for the limit. In PI Vision 2017 R2 we changed this so that the value is shown in the configuration pane under the name of the limit attribute trait so that you do not need to hover to see these values.

    The ability to directly change from one symbol type to another will be included in PI Coresight 2016 R2. This includes the ability to not only switch between the standard PI Coresight symbols but includes switching between custom symbols added to the system by 3rd parties.

  20. Multistate gauge driven by other attribute than visible value

    I want to have drive the multistate behaviour in a gauge from a different source than the visible value. The reason is that i have a calculation in AF that classifies a sampled value in a range of 1 to 5.
    I want the 1-5 assessment to drive the multistate, not the tag value.

    A configurable radial gauge will be included in PI Coresight 2016 R2. The gauge allows the configuration of pointer style, gauge angle, scale, multi-state, and color configuration.

    Attribute limits can be configured in PI-AF to use a dynamic data reference or a fixed value. Attribute limits are automatically used by PI Coresight to configure multistate and scale limit values.
