  1. Increase logging for PIML Windows Service failures

    When the PIML Windows Service is sending queued data to the Data Archive, it will fail if it encounters an "illegal" value.  However, the error logged only states what the illegal value was, but no identifying information about the tag or tour to assist with resolving the issue.  It would be helpful for troubleshooting if more diagnostic information was included with the error.

  2. Ability for tour to have multiple tiers of approval

    As an administrator, I would like for PI ML to have the ability to create a multi-tier approval workflow so that manually entered data needs to be approved by one or more levels up the hierarchy before data is stored in the data archive?

  3. PI Manual Logger’s Conditional Manual Data Entry feature should allow conditions based on tags that are not part of the tour

    Tags within the tour may require data entry based on the value of status tags for which data is never entered manually.

    Use Case: Say there is an asset called Pump1 that has many related tags (e.g. Pump1.FlowRate, Pump1.Pressue, Pump1.PowerConsumption, etc.) which are members of a tag group within a PIML tour. If the pump also has an associated digital tag called Pump1.Running that can be either TRUE or FALSE, it would only make sense to enter data for that tag group if the value of Pump1.Running is TRUE. Otherwise, the tag group should be skipped. In this case, you…

  4. PI Manual Logger Web: Floating Headers

    In grid view, it would be helpful to have floating headers that scrolled down with the page as you enter data. The problem is that when you scroll down, you lose sight of what each column is and it would improve the experience if the column headers could follow. This functionality would be similar to Excel's Freeze Panes function.

  5. Multi-Level Hierarchy in PIML Web Grid View

    In PIML Windows Desktop, administrators can configure a Tree View with an arbitrary number of nested groups.  However in PIML Web, the grid view only shows tags at the top level.  Ideally, the Tree View structure created in Desktop would be mirrored to PIML Web's Grid View.

  6. 'Barcode, if assigned, must be scanned or manually entered before data entry is allowed' for PI Manual Logger Web

    Add support for tour option 'Barcode, if assigned, must be scanned or manually entered before data entry is allowed'

    In PIML Mobile 2012, it can be required that users scan or enter a barcode for any tag or tag group that has a barcode association before they can access the Data Entry window. This features is not currently present in PIML Web, so users that require this feature are unable to migrate from PIML Mobile to PIML Web.

  7. Avoid Data Entry for Existing Event in PI Manual Logger

    Currently, PI Manual Logger can only determine the value and timestamp of a tag in the current tour run. There should be an option which checks the existing events in the data archive and only allow new data entry for a tag at a new timestamp. The previous recorded events should remain unchanged. In the current PIML setting, the new value will replace the previous value.

  8. Sort Digital State List

    As an operator, I would like the ability to be able to sort/organize the digital states list in Manual Logger/for manual entry. This is helpful for tags that have 100+ digital states. This is available in PI ML PC, but not PI ML Web.

    Sorting/Organizing can include:
    A to Z
    Z to A
    Autocomplete

  9. Customize Error Borders in PI Manual Logger Web

    We have a sheet of about 103+ data points we record through manual logger twice a day, so grid view is essential. In grid view our operators have a hard time seeing the thin yellow error border in the Limits column. It would be nice if there was a way to customize the thickness and color of the error borders so they could easily see when something is a limit violation.

  10. Have the entered data from PI Manual Logger Web be view-able from the PI Point trend and historical data table without refreshing.

    It is very important in the case of downtime to see the changes in Manual Logger Web immediately to ensure the downtime and run-time events are accurately measured. Therefore having the data not update immediately in the tag trend display in the manual logger web view or the historical data view is detrimental because it is difficult to know if the event was accurately entered.

  11. Indicate how much localStorage space has been consumed by PI Manual Logger Web

    PI Manual Logger Web stores tour definitions and tour run data in the browser's localStorage for offline collection. This localStorage in the browser has finite space per domain. It would be useful as an administrator or operator to see an indicator in PI Manual Logger Web as to how much localStorage space the tours are taking up, to know when capacity is nearly full.

  12. Option to cache values based on time range instead of # of Values

    Currently when configuring how many cached values to store in the PIML Windows SQL database, you select a "Number of Values".  It would be nice if you could select a time range (e.g. 'The last 7 days') to preserve cached values as well.

    This would mean that trend previews in PIML Web have a consistent time scale, so that users do not have to constantly re-orient themselves to each trend's time range.

  13. Add support for an English-GB (Great Britain) Language in PIML Web

    In most English-speaking countries, dates are formatted with the day coming first, and the month coming second.  It would be nice if there was an English-Great Britain language option in PIML Web so that dates could be rendered in this format.

  14. Add the ability to only allow data entry users to change the date, but not time, for Manual Logger Web tours

    Customer wants to have an option to enter all tags at midnight, without having the user to select the time, therefore user only select the data and the time default to midnight (they can modify if required but it should always default to midnight).

  16. Allow Tag Group Level Comment Tag to record all comments associated with tags in the same group

    In PI Manual Logger Web->Tag Group Configuration, a Comment Tag can be created.

    If, for example, comments were made for all of the tags in the same tag group, the user would like to see all of the comment strings in the same tag group level tag.

  18. Description on PI Manual Logger Web

    On PI Manual Logger Web put the description of the tour besides it's name, so the users do not need to scroll down the page. Or have an option to choose where to put the description.

  20. DEFAULT Timestamp for Tour so Users wont get asked for it

    Would be nice if we could set for default a TimeStamp on PI manual logger and once it's set we could hide it from the user so they wont get asked again and again to enter it.
