  1. Allow Symbols to be Excluded from Asset Switching

    Excluding certain symbols from asset switching would allow displays to be authored with symbols that are "locked" -- meaning they will show the same data regardless of display asset context. This would allow displays to be used for drill-in navigation, while maintaining some top-level context data. It would also allow navigation buttons to be "locked" so that the button's target asset context will never be changed.

  2. Dropdown Menus for AF Elements / Assets

    Have the ability to configure a display with drop downs whose values map different process areas in the AF hierarchy and build the screen dynamically from this. 

    Useful for users that are not as tech savvy.

  3. Hierarchical intelligence when building and navigating a dashboard set

    a.      The concept of a hierarchy of dashboards, starting in a root dashboard as landing page, which closely follows the applicable AF tree

    b.      Filtering available dashboards, based on a particular template, according to the current position in the AF tree

    c.      Automatic listing as thumbnails of all available child dashboards, according to the current position in the AF tree (alternatively, a navigation tree to the left of the dashboard body.)

    d.      Give gauges and traces a drill-down/drill-through feature with hierarchical sense. Currently, drill down and drill through must be manually concocted by overlaying a text block.

  4. Addtional method for adjusting time intervals for Coresight trends and adding a calendar to the bottom right form box

    I deleted the original post by accident.

    I find some users will bring up a trend and want to input a custom time interval, ie 4 hour or 15 min trend. To adjust this right now you can use the left time slot; however, it would be nice to have a double click interaction in the box where the fixed time intervals are located. After double clicking you would be able to add a custom time, ie 4h, 15m, etc...

    I also find many users will input a date in the bottom left form box. This date might be 4…

  5. Open hyperlink in new tab by ctrl+click left mouse button

    It would be great to open displays in a new tab by pressing ctrl+click ("strg"+"left mouse button") independent of what is set in the hyperlink option. Users want to decide by themselves whether to open a new tab or not.

  6. The Assets Tool Pane should automatically browse to the current asset context of the display

    As PI Vision user, I would like the Assets Tool Pane to automatically browse to the current asset context of the display. This will be helpful when I am viewing an existing display and would like to add a related data item to the display for comparison with the existing data items.

  7. Centrally Managed Home Page Screen

    Need a Centrally managed Home screen, IT or Engineering needs to be able to have default screens and navigation available for the operator or basic user. Too many users are use to processbook and the older way of doing thing. Navigation is so important to cutting my site over to Coresight.

  8. Allow hierarchy of displays

    Please make the element selection box include more of the hierarchy as it currently precludes calling something generic like "pump". This naming adequately describes something in a heierarchy when you use the hierarchy to determine the position in the plant / asset hierarchy.

  9. A “Popular Displays” section

    Where users select “All Displays”, “Favorites”, etc, add a list item for “Popular Displays“. Whereas the parameters for what is considered “popular“ can be configured. Users should only be able to see Displays that they have access to.

  11. Show hourglass when changing the timeframe

    Show hourglass when changing the timeframe...when going from 1 Day to 1 Week or Month takes a delay in the background to retrieve and present the data and end-users start repeatedly clicking the timeframe selection.

  12. Lock the time range on a display

    It would be helpful in some use cases to be able to lock the time range on displays, so that clicking through the time bar or clicking or touching a trend does not adjust the time range.

    One particular use case this would be helpful for is when operators are using tablets to view displays while in the field. In these cases, it would be easy to accidentally swipe on a trend and change the time range for the display, which may lead to the operator reading old data by mistake and making adjustments to the process based on data…

  15. Lock Folder view in place in PI Vision

    Once you click on a display in the folder, the folder view goes away. What we would like to see, is that the folder view is kept on screen.

  16. Do not preserve old values in Gauges or values

    I designed a display. I wanted all of the parameters shown to be from a different set of assets. (URL parameters didn't work because they were in an AF hierarchy nd not a flat structure). I draged the numbers onto the guages and values and viola, the values reflected the new, dragged on value. The issue is that when you clisk on the value and view the history, it still shows the original value and there is no way to get rid of the original. Would be best if the oroginal disappeared, but secondarily, make it possible to delete the…

    Thanks for sharing details and clarifying this request. When updating a value symbol, dragging a new attribute will update the symbol value but not the multi-state as the multi-state is configured independently. You will need to drag the same attribute to the multi-state area as well.

    There are no near term plans to implement the requested functionality.

  17. When drilling down, one losses visibility of other elements at the level of the parent.

    This behavior changed from the previous version of Coresight. Major customer in the O&G industry is asking for this to be restored

    Description:
    When I select a parent element (eg. Texas), I'll see all assets under Texas (eg. Odessa, Houston, etc), however I lose visibility of all other elements that existed at the same level of the parent element (Texas, Utah, Wyoming).

    See screenshot attached for more info
