  1. Trend: Show data item descriptions

    Be able to view the tag/attribute descriptions on the bottom of the trend the same way that you are able to in ProcessBook. For those of us with large DB, it is very important to have this functionality.

    We are currently researching this item and evaluating it for a future release.

    If you have a moment, please let us know if you have a preference for how data item descriptions should be displayed in trends. For example, would you prefer to be able to configure the trend legend to show the item’s description, that the descriptions be shown under the plot area of the trend, or would you like them to be displayed in another way?

    Let us know what your preference is by adding a comment below.

  2. Trend: Show cursor values while dragging

    As a process engineer, while dragging a trend cursor I'd like to see the process values. Currently, I can only see the value once I drop the cursor, I need to see the values WHILE dragging the cursor so that I can quickly identify problems in my process.

    This feature was available in previous versions (PI Coresight) and in ProcessBook.

  3. Trend: Edit trace name in legend or be able to add a description

    Edit the trace name or add a description in the legend of a trend in order to:

    1) Make clear the description of the Attribute in the trend
    2) Use an abbreviation for the attribute description in the trend legend
    3) Use a different language in the legend while respecting the attribute name (for example, an attribute name is written in English in PI System Explorer but we would like to see Italian in the Coresight trend)

  4. Show descriptions in tooltip

    In PI CoreSight 2014, when working with a raw Tag or attribute, one could hover over the tag and the description would appear in the tooltip. I loved that functionality. However, in the upgrade, this functionality is lost.

    Please reinstate it for the next patch or upgrade.

  5. We would like to be able to have a sound play as part of a multistate

    We would like to be able to have a sound play as part of a multistate. Ex: on an upper limit we may want it to play an alarm sound.

  6. Show ToolTip Statistics at PI Vision

    As a PI user, I would like to see the same ToolTip statistics as we are used to see at PI ProcessBook. It is automatic when any user sees a value and wants to check further information on an attribute with PI Point Data Reference.

  7. Email errors to administrator

    Provide a way to quickly email an administrator an error message seen on a display. Message should include the context of the issue (corresponding display, symbol, data item, etc).

  8. Folder-related URL in PI Vision

    It would be great if it were possible to set up a URL that takes the user directly to a folder within Vision.

    For example something like https://.../PIVision/Site1/ would show only the Displays of the folder Site1

  9. Unit of Measure (UOM) setting per user

    As a PI Coresight user I want to be able to switch the units of measure on my displays between Metric and Imperial so I can see data in units I expect.

  10. Support AF UOM Groups

    For international companies, it would be good having the possibility to use the new AF UOM Groups in PI Vision, so that each user could see data with the UOMs he is more comfortable with.
    It would be even better if these would be selected automatically depending on the user region (though it should be possible overriding this setting).

  11. Change text alignment in a Table symbol

    Currently, text alignment is hard-coded in the Table symbol. I would like to be able to configure text alignment (right, left, center) for each column within a Table.

  15. internet explorer vs Chrome

    I realize that this very well may be out of OSIsoft's control. However the very noticeable performance difference between Internet Explorer and Chrome on displays, particularly ones utilizing many objects is problematic. Internet Explorer is still such a heavily used browser within the organization. Its confusing for many since we would recommend Chrome usage, but that results in users having to juggle applications requiring IE in the organization and Chrome.

  16. Trend: Vertical gridlines

    Plots such as the pad trends, could benefit from grid lines to help quantify the changes over time.  The horizontal axis has decent grid definition between the grey and the black, but the lack of vertical axis makes it hard to compare day to day comparisons.

  17. Trend X-axis / Time Markings

    Currently (2016 R2), the x-axis on trends is marked with a start time, end time and span. Pre-2016 versions of Coresight provided additional markings along the axis that identified intermediate dates/times, without having to click on the trend to bring up the marker with values and timestamp. This functionality was useful and should be considered for re-incorporation.

  18. Align items with first clicked

    Modify the object alignment so the objects all align (top middle bottom...) with the first object selected. This way the first object does not move, everything else aligns to it.

  19. Search Displays from a Display

    In Coresight 2015R2, you were able to not only search the PI Server and AF Server, but you were also able to search for existing displays and open them. In Coresight, you are unable to do so.

    That being said, Element Relative Displays are a viable alternative, however, the asset swap feature only shows the name of the element and not the full path. If the names of the element is identical to each other, there is no way to distinguish the 2 easily. You can see the full path by hovering over the element name but that takes time…

  20. Coresight 2015R2 Trend Behavior

    Coresight 2016 Trends are missing functionality from Coresight 2015R2. Namely:

    1) Have the Tracer follow the mouse as opposed to having to drag the trace around.

    2) Have the Tracer constantly update as the mouse moves as opposed to having it update after the mouse button is released.

    3) Have a button (x in 2015R2) to hide traces as opposed to right-clicking the attribute in the legend to hide

    4) Have the ability to hide traces in Kiosk mode
