  1. Hiding default attribute value in PI Vision Events pane

    I would like hide the default attribute value in the PI Vision events pane. Currently, the event frames are returned in event pane with their name and default attribute value in parenthesis. There is no way to change or hide the attribute value in events pane.

  5. display digits in tables

    Tables seem to want to show exponents sometimes, which does not fit with normal use cases for displaying numbers.

  6. Multistate: Set symbol/trace color based on historical data in display time range

    Change the color of a symbol or trend trace based on tag data within the time range of the display. e.g. If the tag is in alarm at the end time of the display, then set the color red. If the tag is not in alarm at the end time, but it was in alarm at some time during the time range of th display, then set its color yellow. Set the color green if no alarm was reported in the time range of the display.

  7. Release documentation for SVG PB DTD

    Maybe this is a ProcessBook issue, but since I'm generating SVG files for inclusion in PI Vision, here goes...

    I have asked, but looks like documentation for the namespaces of Processbook generated SVG files are not published to the public. 

    As a developer I would like to programatically generate SVG files based on ProcessBook DTDs for inclusion into Coresight.

    I have seen more and more people editing their SVG files, this would also help customers in general.

  9. Code Behind

    If your users are going to really find this of value, they need (and I) a somewhat easy method to write code behind the web page and can perform special/customer specific tasks... Process Book VBA is long in the tooth.
    Thank you, Daniel Pesch.

  10. Save trend time range and attributes to favorites

    On a trend, PI Vision user should be able to select an area and save it as a custom event range where it has all details about attributes on that section and time range. The user can save this info in his profile where he can always apply back this info to reproduce the same trend.

  11. Use of functions like "bom" in PI-Vision timebar

    It would be great if could use functions like "bom" (and similar, e.g. bod, bonm) in the PI-Vision timebar. New functions like "beginning of year", for example, would also be great

  12. 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.

  13. Preserve "Visibility" settings when switching a gauge to another gauge

    If I switch, say, a horizontal gauge to be a vertical gauge, the "Visibility" settings for Label, Value, and Unit should be preserved. Currently, these reset to showing all of them.

  15. Automatically grey-out or hide attributes that are not configured well

    It would be great if Attributes in AF that are not configured well (with errors) (AF.jpg) were automatically greyed-out or hidden in PI-Vision (Vision.jpg).

  16. Option to hide thousands separator for numerical values

    Coresight currently displays integers (e.g. "12345") with a thousands separator by default ("12,345"). Can it be an option to hide the thousands separator?

  17. Table: Row Grouping by Category

    Allow grouping of attributes in a table by their assigned AF Category similar to how attributes are grouped in System Explorer.  This would help organize the contents of a table other than by alphabetical order.
