  1. 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

  2. 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).

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

    PI Vision is built and tested to function when visited by any of its supported browsers, but may not have equal performance on each browser.

    As a modern web application, PI Vision relies on client-side JavaScript execution in browsers to provide a fast and smooth experience for users. JavaScript execution is completely dependent on the interpretation, compilation, and run-time code provided by the browser’s JavaScript engine. As such, browsers with faster JavaScript engines will provide faster performance in PI Vision.

  8. Leverage Step configuration setting on trends

    Allow setting a trend item to use the step = 1 setting.

  9. 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 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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

  14. add PREV and NEXT buttons next to asset swap

  15. Preserve the aspect ratio of picture objects when resizing by their corners

    If I resize an imported picture by its corner, the aspect ratio of the picture should be preserved. If I want to change the aspect ratio (which would not be very often), I can resize the picture by its edges. This behaviour is the same as how Microsoft Office treats pictures.

  16. Display property to hide asset/event pane

    For smaller screens, the asset/event pane can take up a lot of real estate. The kiosk mode hides the asset/event pane. Unfortunately, it also hides the asset selector drop-down. This improvement would hide the asset/event pane but allow use of the asset selector dropdown. It would be ideal to be able to set a default (display setting) for each display and to have the option of passing a parameter in via URL to override the selected default.

  17. Vision Home display moving around

    Please allow the ability to make the display on the Vision home page static. Currently, the last display viewed moves to the 1st position. This continually shuffles the display around. If I am in a hurry, I do not know where the display I want to navigate to is. I have to slowly go there the entire list until I find the display I want. It makes me fell like you are playing where's Waldo

  18. The "Now" button should not be highlighted if you are viewing future data

    As of Vision 2017 R2, the "Now" button is highlighted green if you are viewing current time or future time. It is not highlighted if you are in the past. This can create confusion if you are viewing future time and think your tags are flatlined.

    The Vision team has clarified that this is not a bug -- a green "Now" button just indicates that the display is updating. This is not very intuitive. The button just says "Now", so you'd think highlighting it would mean you are viewing "now" data.

  19. Allow Filtering Linked Elements or Elements With Duplicate Names

    1) Ignore linked elements (this seems the most direct but there would probably be a use-case where this would cause a problem)
    2) Allow blocking or “ignore” of selected paths to prevent the search from finding elements not wanted in the results
    3) Maybe a variant of #2 – provide a “preferred path”
    4) display switch(s): “Unique only”, “Ignore Linked” or something like that.

    A similar issue occurs when elements are given duplicate names (ie: Factory 1 and 2 both have a Unit 1 and 2). CS will find 2 Unit1 but it’s not immediately obvious which factory it belongs…

  20. Default/Templated displays for asset templates

    because every asset has an template => every template has a asset based view default display.

    it should be possible to configure a default display per asset template, when i klick on the left asset tree then the element automatically opens with the right display
