  1. Better handle incompatible data type event in PI Vision trend

    Scenario: Your company has a PI tag set up as string that primarily gets float values. It is a string because it sometimes contains messages explaining why a result was not obtained.

    The tag is set up as a double attribute in AF and plotted in Vision. This works fine unless a non-numeric value is encountered within the Time Range you are looking at. If this happens, the trend is blank and No Data is displayed.

    While PI annotations would have been a good use in this situation, it is difficult to go back and change this when you have…

  2. Allow user to favorite (star) a display from the display page (not just from the thumbnails page)

    As a user, I want to be able to mark a display as a favorite from that display's page, not only from the home page (thumbnail page).

  3. AF Templates with no data or pi tag not found

    We have an AF structure that uses templates for a few device types. Our templates are setup to resolve PI tags for the device if we have them available. If we don't, it says PI Tag Not Found - which is fine. Once the device is added in the field (out of the office), that AF element will update and work.

    When in PI Vision, the user gets thousands of errors saying the PI tag is not found. I would like an option in PSE to set the element attribute to ignore the error if the tag is not found,…

  4. Show future data values at end time of display

    PI Vision shows future tag values at the start time of a display when the display is in the future rather than showing the value at the end time as is done with displays in the past or at current time. This behavior is unintuitive and confusing to users.

  5. Automatically adding Start Time and End Time to the PI Vision URL

    Allow adding the timestamp automatically into the PI Vision link. The scenario is if you open any PI vision page and zoom into the timeframe which you required then the timestamp range which zoomed in should be automatically added up in the PI Vision link instead of adding the start time and end time parameter in the PI Vision URL.
    This will help the process engineers to identify the issue at a particular point of time and send that link directly to others without any manual intervention.

  6. Customize text in a collection when no results are returned

    For collections that are filtered, in many cases they will be empty which is the expected behavior (no assets in alarm for example). Currently when this is the case the following text is shown: "No items match the Collection Criteria."

    This message is long, not formatted in the same manner as the symbols in the collection, and it is not clear to an end-user who doesn't build displays who may not be familiar with collections.

    This text should be customizable so that the format can be made consistent, and so that the message can be written to reflect what the…

  7. Slicer symbol in PI Vision

    As a user, I will like to have a slicer symbol to compare assets. For example, the default display will show a value symbol of a attribute in all the units in all plants and in all countries, I can create 3 slicer symbol to filter the desired country/countries and plant/plants for comparison.

  8. Force Kiosk Mode and Hide Toolbar on non-owners

    I would like to be able to be able to set something while configuring a display that will force the display to be opened with limited access when navigated to through Vision home screen.  Right now, you can only get people to access your display with modified url if you send them the link directly.  Anyone can just navigate to it from the home screen and see the full version.

  11. Allow Asset swap in kiosk mode

    In kiosk mode, the asset list swap drop-down menu disappears. There is a desired functionality to have the asset swap still visible and usable in kiosk mode.

  12. Use Attributes as Timestamps in PI-Vision

    Hi,

    Currently I'm working on a display which should always show the last event of a machine.
    I know there are event frames, but I think it would be nice if there was a way to use attributes as the start time and end time of a display's time span.

    In this way, it would be possible to change the timestamps of the display dynamically and you would only see the relevant period.

  13. Fit-all button for imported Processbook display.

    When you open an imported PB display, PI Vision would automatically fit-all for your screen. However, after you click zoom-in several times, there is no quick way to come back to fit-all size because there is no fit-all button.

    Fit-all button is available on the normal PI Vision display, so I hope it's possible to add this button for imported PB Display too.

  14. Configurable display names for PI Data Archives/AF Servers

    As a PI Vision Administrator, I would like to be able to configure user-friendly display names for my PI Data Archives and AF Servers so that my users can easily identify servers in the asset pane instead of being restricted to the server name.

  15. Disable Build/Edit mode for displays when user doesn't have write access

    It can be somewhat odd and a little confusing for operators utilizing a pre-made display that they only have read access where they can still 'edit' the display. It would be helpful if there was a way to lock a display down where the only manipulation is manipulating the time ranges and going to full screen trends.

  16. PI Coresight import folder management should also be able to add folder from SharePoint site as this will be a great help to everyone

    As everything is getting maintained at cloud/SharePoint sites/One drive, I would say we should have a function where we can add ProcessBook files from these cloud database to PI Coresight display easily with using import folder management.

  17. Add Copy & Paste options to right-click menu

    As a PI Vision display designer, I expect to be able to right-click on a display symbol and select 'Copy'. Once I have an item on my clipboard, I also expect to be able to right-click on empty space on a display and select 'Paste'.

  18. Auto reset display to "Now"

    It is useful to be able to scroll back in time on each Coresight display. However, operators sometimes forget to reset the display to "Now" and are looking at a good situation, while the current situation is bad.

    A automatic reset of the display to "Now" after a specific period of inactivity would prevent this from happening.

  20. Include data point description on trend

    I am not happy with the new Coresite. This is basically like Processbook - why offer two nearly identical UI's? I don't mind that you can't hover over the trend to see values anymore, but I want the box that displays the values to also include the data point it is indicating. On a busy trend, the colors start to look the same.

    I want more options for how to display the data like the old Coresite - min, max, etc.

    I can't even drag a data point from the search box on the left on to an existing trend,…
