  5. Change order of columns in tables in config pane

    Change order of columns in data/asset tables in the configuration pane. The order can currently be changed by clicking and dragging on column headers, but it would be more consistent with the rest of the application if column order could be set in the configuration pane by moving columns up or down in a list.

  6. Make it obvious that single-timestamped values apply to the end of the time range

    Gauge, table, and value symbols are sometimes used to show values that have a single timestamp (as opposed to, say, the maximum value in the time range). PI Vision always uses the end of the time range as the timestamp. I feel that this should be communicated more clearly when the user is using any PI Vision display. Currently, I must explain this to every new PI Vision user, since it is easy to accidentally assume that the start of the time range is used instead.

  7. Keep reference selected between reloads

    We have created an element referenced display. So far so good, everything works fine.
    Would it be possible to keep the selected reference selected in between refreshes or after opening the page again? Maybe with a cookie or something? This prevents our users to select their asset ever again and again after opening. Or maybe this is possible already, then please let us now how.

  8. Expose PI data to non PI users

    Have a better way to expose PI data to non PI users because they are not familiar with where or how the data is stored in terms of querying or the structures.

  9. Optimize PI Vision with WebAssembly

    Generally, WebAssembly code is smaller than JavaScript code and executes faster. However, WebAssembly is not supported by very old browsers such as Internet Explorer.

    Please consider replacing some of PI Vision's JavaScript code with WebAssembly. Since PI Vision is arguably the PI program that users use the most, it is important for it to be as good as possible.

  10. Minify PI Vision's HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code

    The code for PI Vision's web pages is currently not minified. Please minify it so that the pages load faster, especially on mobile devices, and so that the network traffic is reduced.

    To be clear, to avoid the extra processing time of a separate minification step, the generated code should be minified to begin with. That is, minification should not be a separate step.

  11. Trend line Colors

    Trend lines colors should always stay the same. In other words if point 1 is deleted from a trend the point that becomes point 1 should assume the color assigned to point 1. This would be consistent with Processbook

  12. add url link to a group

    At the moment one cannot add a URL Link to a set of Grouped symbols. One can of course add a URL Link to one or more item in the group, but for maintenance and configuration purposes I link on the Group Level would be nice.

  13. Easy Copy Paste of DCS screens

    I wish we could easily copy paste DCS screen with live datas and easy animations as from on the DCS, with the link between screens (as from the DCS). We could then roll back and replay a sequence of production and eventualy see what was going wrong or what could be improved. Even better if we could even see alarms.

  14. Display PI Point attributes from PI Vision symbols on a display

    On a PI Vision display, we should be able to click a tag symbol and bring up the PI Point attributes. This would be very useful for the operators. This feature exists in PI Processbook

  15. Standardize pointer for links on graphic

    Im currently using a graphic (index, with buttons) from an operating plant DCS as a mimic on PI Vision. I want the user to click the buttons as they would on the DCS and the embedded link will take them to the display. I've discovered that using a text box with a link turns the cursor to a pointer finger with single click navigation, however, using a drawn shape/box (not a text box) with a link, the user must double click and does not get the pointer finger that you do with the text box. I feel the action should…

  16. Hide scrollbars in Vision when all display symbols are visible.

    I have just recently started working with PI Vision. I have searched the Help documentation for any reference to the scroll bars that are always visible in the display window. I found no reference to the scroll bars. It seems reasonable that the scroll bars should automatically disappear if all symbols in the display are visible.

  17. Setting up a time-frame & more

    Currently when we change the end-time, automatically the start time changes because the gap between the two times does not change. We would like the start time to stay the same, and the gap time to change. We lose a lot of time because we always need to re-write the start time when we change the end time.
    It would also be nice if we can write in the difference between the start and end time, for example, currently we can only chose between 1h,8h,1d,1w,1mo, it would be nice to decide exactly what we want and not only have 5…

  18. Resolve Varying Digital State Sets when using Asset Context switching

    Currently in PI Vision, digital state sets are not taken to account when using Asset Context Switching for displays. In the future, taking tag configuration into account in PI Vision displays for Asset Context Switching.
