  1. Navigation Links Back Feature

  2. File Import to create folder hierarchy/modify security for PI Vision in bulk

    Similar to how AF has the ability to use file imports to create various security settings in addition to creating attributes and elements, PI Vision could have the functionality of importing a file to modify security settings for PI Vision displays (User Access Levels, for one). Additionally, with the advent of Folders and sub-folders for displays in PI Vision 2017 R2, it would be nice if file imports were an option for creating a hierarchy of folders/sub-folders.

  4. Color in multistate color pallette default choices matching the display background

    When building a element-relative display in ProcessBook, we often use a rectangular shape and set a mutli-state behavior to show or hide information on an element's attribute(s) based on whether it is excluded or not.  The color of the shape when something is excluded is the color of the display background - which is easy to manage.

    When doing same in Coresight 2016 R2 - the color of the display background is not available in the multistate color palette default choices.  While we now also have an option to create a custom color- the process is very hard to use…

  6. Always allow start & end time to be modified from the timebar

    Allow manual adjustment of the display timerange start time and end time from the timebar regardless of the size of the Coresight browser window. Currently at small resolutions, e.g. projector screens, the start & end times of the timebar become read-only and cannot be modified.

  7. Exception / Notification based monitoring

    Be able to monitor many assets at a time without having to have humans visually watch each one constantly.

    Drive the monitoring on an exception basis via notifications. When an issue happens or is about to happen, notify the appropriate people and take them to the right place (display) to analyze the situation and make a decision.

  9. Multistate Attribute name not shown

    When configuring a Multistate tag, the right hand side setup panel comes up. No matter who much space is given, the whole tag name is never shown. (Example: Make Up Water System| Manual_L...) There has to be a way to see what tag is attached not just (...)

  10. Add support for HTTP/2

    PI Vision currently uses only HTTP/1.1. Please add support for HTTP/2 so that PI Vision will load faster. This is especially important for mobile devices, which are generally already slower compared to desktop or laptop computers.

  11. Now button Text and Color

    If the page is not showing current time then the "NOW" text should state "Past" and the background of the now button should turn red (or some other color)

  12. Update time on all open displays

    PI Vision has finally solved the pesky process control system (PCS) HMI limitations. By replicating PCS graphics into PI Vision, you can effectively turn anyones web browser into a read-only OIT... which means we can have many tabs (i.e. displays) open in one browser.

    Can we find a way to update all the tabs (i.e. displays) that are open in the browser for a specific time?

    For example, if i have a transfer tank, centrifuge, and receiving tank displays open in 3 separate tabs, is there any easy way to update the time on all 3 graphics to a specific…

  13. Pin your time when navigating displays

    Provide an option to pin the current time you are looking at on 1 display, and carry that time forward to any other display that you end up navigating to.

    Useless for dashboards but very powerful for process control system graphic replicas.

  14. Access display settings from a display

    As a user, I want to be able to access display settings for the currently open display without having to go to the home page, identify the right display, and then edit settings.

  15. Help visualizing data in trend cursor if they are spikes surrounded by null values

    If a trend contains values (digital or numerical) that are surrounded by NULL values (empty) these would appear as spikes in a trend. If I want to pull a cursor to inspect this spike, it's difficult to center it where the value is... hence, facilitating the user to put the cursor on the value to display it would be a good feature. This is for Gestamp.

  16. Possibility to view subsecond timestamp in trend cursor, even when display time span is bigger than 5 seconds

    Currently, the cursor reports the subsecond timestamp only if the display context is 5s. Why? Can't it just be always reporting subsecond timestamp? Could it be an option?

  17. PI Vision fix the width of a display

    I know there is an auto fix button. Some of the display we make we intend to have to scroll down. We would like a button to autofit the width on different displays

  18. Table: Time & Value columns update by clicking inside the trend

    When you create a table, by default, you can see the last value and timestamp of the time range selected when checking the "Time" and "Value" columns.

    It would be great that the table updates Time and Value columns when you click on the trend.

    Now it is always the last value and it never changes.

  20. Adding notes acknowledgement of faults

    Set alarms/notifications default attached to down time minutes as well as the number of faults present. This would allow us to input notes for single or minimal faults resulting in large amounts of down time as well as multiple faults resulting in down time.
