  1. Can we get more development on Processbook "Make Processbook great again"

    processbook looks like it is out of the late 90's and early 2000's.  Can we get some updates on this.  I know you are pushing PI Vision but some people don't want to use a web based software to do this with.  Because Processbook is so outdated in functionality and look my company has been looking at PARCview as a replacement.  This is because it is more intuitive and user friendly.  I do not want go through the process of changing to PARCview and would prefer a major update to Processbook.  Things like drag/drop from one display to another, modify…

    After 25 years, OSIsoft is retiring PI ProcessBook using a phased approach over several years. PI ProcessBook was the leading face of PI System for many years, paving the way for self-service visualization. Since then, technology and your expectations around mobility, scalability, and collaboration have evolved beyond what PI ProcessBook can deliver. OSIsoft has been actively developing and investing in PI Vision to provide you that next-generation, modern visualization experience.

    For additional information regarding the retirement of PI ProcessBook, please see https://customers.osisoft.com/s/knowledgearticle?knowledgeArticleUrl=000031882.

  2. Provide Switch Asset Navigation Button for ProcessBook

    Support the Switch Asset Navigation Button for switching contexts on imported ProcessBook displays.

    I am aware of the url parameter workaround but would be very nice to also have the switch asset for interactive switching.

    While we appreciate the interest the community has for this suggestion, we have decided to decline this item in favor of other high priority work the product needs. Thank you for your feedback, and please continue sharing suggestions for how we can improve PI Vision for you!

  3. Upload ProcessBook display file to Coresight

    The current mechanism to add ProcessBook displays is to copy them to a shared drive. Unfortunately our IT like many (I actually agree with them) don't particularly like opening firewalls for the Windows file share.
    An easy solution would be to provide an upload option via Coresight. An authorised user would be able to save the PDI file to the display location via a page/dialog on Coresight. This would reduce some of the friction. The upload could also do some basic check like only allow pdi files.

  4. Allow configuration of default AF identity ProcessBook displays are shared with

    By default, PI ProcessBook displays in PI Coresight are shared with the AF identity "World". Allow the default identity PI ProcessBook displays are shared with to be configurable so that it can be set to one or more identities.

  7. When building a trend in PI ProcessBook could a copy of multiple cells in Excel with tag names be pasted into the "Tags in Plot:"

    When building a trend in PI ProcessBook could a copy of multiple cells in Excel with tag names be pasted into the "Tags in Plot:". Currently a paste of such a copy results in only the first cell contents in the tags list. It would be great to copy multiple tag names and paste into the "Tags in Plot:" and get all of the tags added to the trend.

  10. Provide a ways to Configure the URL for imported Process Book Files.

    Provide a ways to Configure the URL for imported Process Book Files. Currently the Process Book Files are getting unique IDs and those IDs are part of the URL (e.g. https://ip address/PIVision/PB/#/PBDisplays/88)
    The problem is for example we change something on the files, it happens that the Display is getting a new ID. (Newer Version of the Same Display, new ID…)
    For the end-user its annoying when the URL is changing. He has then to update the Favorites, or is confused (or even think the display was removed). Best option would be to provide also an URL with the Filename…

  11. Allow scrollbars on Coresight Processbook displays

    When viewing large displays in Processbook the user can use scrollbars to navigate around the display whilst zoomed in so that the symbols remain legible.

    When these displays are imported into Coresight there are no scrollbars which make it very difficult to navigate the display.

    Scrollbar functionality should be implemented in Coresight processbook displays so that the same user experience is shared in both formats.
