  1. Tour Scheduling for PI Manual Logger

    In PI Manual Logger PC, you can set tours to run on a schedule.  This allows, you to set the tour run time as opposed to having the application round the tour run to the nearest hour.

    In PI Manual Logger Web, the tour scheduling configuration is not respected.  Add functionality for Tour Runs in PI Manual Logger Web follow periodic tour scheduling.

  2. PI Manual Logger should support picture uploading together with data entry.

    PI Manual Logger should support picture uploading such that when the user found something physically abnormal during the tour run, they can quickly take photo and save it for later reference.

    PI Vision's comment does accept picture uploading, so it should be possible for PI Manual Logger too.

  3. Improve Onscreen Keyboard Select for PI Manual Logger Web

    Currently the onscreen keyboard selection is defaulted to the alphabet keyboard. PI ML Web should be able to look at a tag and determine what kind of keyboard should be displayed. For example, if we are entering data for a numeric tag (e.g. int32), present a numeric keypad.

  4. Support for Integrated Windows Security In PI Manual Logger PC

    Currently, only PIML Web syncs the user account to the active directory. All PIML applications (PC and mobile) should have the ability to have users login using Integrated Windows Security as opposed to what is setup initially from PIML PC.

  5. Support for Active Directory groups in PI Manual Logger PC Client

    PI Manual Logger Web PC Client does not support AD groups currently. SQL Server and PI Identities that need to be setup support AD groups. The same AD groups should be used for Tour access so it is a cleaner way to manage routes (typically using IT Desk at companies) rather than manually adding and removing users on the PC Client.

  6. Grid View Order Groups as Configured in PIML PC

    The order of Groups in Grid View should match the order configured in PIML PC Client

  7. Create Reporting Functionality on PIML Web

    Many users like auditing tour runs and verifying tour completions to ensure compliance to operational standards and procedures. 

    Currently, users must use Excel to build their own reports which queries the SQL Backend directly.

    Having this functionality in PIML Web will allow better user experience and complies with OSIsoft best practices with regards to the SQL Backend.

  8. PIML Web: New Tour Run button

    In PIML Web, when I select a Tour from the Tour List, the page seems to soft refresh and load the tour page again and brings the page to the top. I then have to scroll back down to the bottom to select New Tour Run.

    It would be helpful to either move the New Tour Run button to the top of the page or have it scroll with you. This is a large inconvenience to my operators using iPads with large tour lists where they experience below freezing temperatures in the field and any improvement to efficiency would be…

  9. Improve Barcode navigation

    Allow PIML to navigate by barcode. Currently you have to be on the correct tag in the route to enter a barcode scan. The idea is to have barcode scanning to move around the route, this would allow the operator to go to a plant item with a barcode, scan it, and then PIML to navigate to that tag and allow data entry within that tag without having to step through each point on the route until you are at the correct tag.

  10. 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.

  11. PI Manual Logger Web-Notify when another user in the group is entering data

    Our users had mentioned they would like to be notified when other users are entering data for the same tour so they would not have to enter the data and they would also like to see the data that they entered on the Web.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. PI Manual Logger WEB 2017 Barcode input during tour run

    When running a web tour in PIML Web 2017, there needs to be an ability to lock keyboard input for values that are expecting a scanned input from a Barcode, QR code and RFID tag.  We realize that the scanned code is coming from the keyboard attached or on screen; so another way is to block any keyboard entry that has a string less than or equaled to three characters.  Thereby, forcing the acceptable keyboard string to be greater than three characters.

    This allows the manager of the web tour to determine if a tag was visited legitimately or not. …

  15. 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?

  16. See inserted data in PI Manual Logger Web

    PI Manual Logger Web shows most recent data not the inserted one (if it was a backfill).

    It should be able to show the inserted value.

  17. 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.

  18. '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.

  19. 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.

  20. Manual Logger display previous tour values.

    You can se last archived values under tag in the PI Manual Logger Web, however if you already passed some tours before, but not uploaded them to PI Data Archive yet, you would like to see these values as latest values too.
