    While we appreciate the interest the community has for this suggestion, we have decided to decline building a native PI Vision SQC symbol.

    There are several ways to tailor an SQC/SPC implementation in PI Vision that are more powerful and more customizable than what is available in PI ProcessBook with the SQC Chart symbol. Use of Asset Analytics and Event Frames now enable the possibility to use SQC and SPC calculations beyond just the display and additionally allow trigger excursion notifications. Our suggestion is to develop an SQC solution through a mixed use of AF analyses and the native PI Vision symbols.

    There are resources to show how SQC/SPC can be implemented using Asset Analytics and Event Frames as well as a workshop offering to help customers implement SQC/SPC in their environment:

  2. Aspect Ratio

    When adding an image I don't see any option to maintain the original images aspect ratio.

  3. Trend: Logarithmic Scale

    in some of our processes, we have pressure close to vacuum. in this case we need a logarithmic scale. until now, it's not possible to configure PI Vision trends with a logarithmic scale.

  4. Request for Radar Plots

    A radar chart is a graphical method of displaying multivariate data in the form of a two-dimensional chart of three or more quantitative variables represented on axes starting from the same point. The relative position and angle of the axes is typically uninformative.

  5. Position of trend cursor should update other symbols in the display

    When scrolling a trend cursor, all other symbols in the screen (e.g. gauges) should display the value corresponding to the cursor's timestamp.
    This will enable better and simpler analysis of data directly in the screen.
    In the screenshot attached, one is trending "Engine's RPM" and one would like to see the gages update (Transmission, pedal position, etc) according to where in the trend the cursor is placed.

  6. FFT Trend

    Please provide a FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) frequency analysis trend. Best case scenario would be to right click (or otherwise select) a trend trace and convert back and forth between FFT and linear trends. It is indispensable for troubleshooting and determining frequency relationships and anomalies.

  7. Map Symbol

    Map symbol that shows assets and data on a map based on GPS location.

    Ability to detect movement using location coordinates (latitude/longitude) attributes / compare trips by path taken using a map symbol.

  8. Trend Legend Options

    It would be useful if the trend legend could be moved to below the trend as a table.

    This would have the following benefit:
    1) The size of the trend is not impacted by the length of the tags/attributes.
    2) You could have richer information in the table (current value, min, max, ....)
    3) The same table could be used for trace configuration

    To be honest I would provide the ability to have both the table below and the legend to the right. The user then has the option of showing/hiding the one they don't want.

  9. Ungroup collections

    Currently, Collection symbols cannot be ungrouped. It is possible to modify the collection criteria in order to decide what symbols and attributes to include. But there is no way to revert from a collection and re-use the symbols separately.
    The current workaround is to "Modify Collection" -> Copy the content of the collection -> Exit the collection -> Paste the content
    It should be natively possible to Ungroup collections as easily as it is to create one.

  10. Allow rotating and scaling groups of symbols

    Allow rotating groups of symbols! Once you've grouped symbols, I'd like to be able to rotate them as a group and to scale or enlarge them as a group as well, similar to how you can rotate and scale grouped drawing objects in Microsoft Office.

  12. Stacked area trends

    I would like to have the possibility to use most of the plot types present in Excel in Coresight.
    One of the most useful for me would be stacked area trends.

    We use it really often at corporative level to show, for example, plants contribution to the total production of the company.

  14. Table: Support Different Table Styles

    Similar to tables in Word / PowerPoint, support several different styling options for tables. Additionally, support the ability for a user to style a table exactly how they want it (with background fill colors, text colors, etc.).

  15. Analysis Expression Tooltip in PI Vision like in PSE

    The customer would like to see when hovering on an attribute that shows calculated data which is the expression that gives that output.

    Something similar of what you see PSE (image attached)

    They have users requesting for it, they would not like to have to give access to the users to see this information in PI Vision.

    They would like to know if the analysis expression has the correct functions and variables.

  16. Ability to change image/graphic based on a data item's value

    Hi there,

    Please add a feature for "MultiState Graphics"

    This would be a simple feature where if a value for a tag or asset was equal to something then the image would change.

    An example of this would be if you had an image of a moving turbine which indicated that a turbine was active as the status tag was equal to 100 but if the status tag was equal to 0 then the turbine was not active and an image of a still (not moving turbine was shown.

    This would be a very helpful feature, I am happy to…

  17. Allow option to prevent trend interpolation after the most recent data value

    Currently, trends interpolate a line after the most recent data value--which means that if the last value occurred two hours ago a flat line will be drawn on the trend from the last value until now, which can erroneously give the impression that data has been received during that time period.  If interpolation could be disabled, this would have the trend not draw a flat line after the most recent value, but rather simply terminate the trend line at the last data point.  This is related to the following related item: https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/555148-pi-server/suggestions/18496177-add-new-pipointattribute-for-staletimeout; however, adding this option to the trend…

  18. XY Plot: Logarithmic scales for both axes

    It would be useful to be able to implement a logarithmic scale to either/both axes of xy plots. 

    Specific use case: Diagnose well conditions in real time by looking at conditions based on elapsed time since an event frame.  To be able to identify trends and perform diagnostics, this will need to be plotted as log Y vs log X (elapsed time).

  20. Polar plot

    I want to be able to do a polar plot! We have the need to monitor deformation in the stator of a hydro turbine. The you can see if the stator is oval.
    The time-series data behind must have an configurable time space.
    Start time, period.
