  2. LOTOS PJ

    If you align value items to left or right it does not work in longer period of time.
    The items move depending on digit numer displayed (attachement VALUES):
    1. Good to have option set decimal digits,
    2. Good to have option TEXT SIZE,
    3. Do not change VALUE ITEM size dynamicaly - let me do that by options.

  4. Allow minimizing or hiding PI Vision symbols

    Some users who are migrating to (or considering migrating to) PI Vision are familiar with competing visualization products that allow users to minimize, collapse, and/or hide symbols on the display.  This could appear in the UI as a minimize or collapse button in the upper-right corner, for example, of an existing symbol, and a user could click on that button to toggle the symbol's visibility from its normal visibility to a hidden or minimized state.

  7. average 7d production

    it would be valuable to add a 7 d average production, not just the daily number.

  8. Text size smaller or configurable in Assets and Events panes

    The text size is too big in the Assets and Events panes. The first thing I do when starting PI Vision is to set the browser zoom to 80%, which will give a more proper text size both on 24" screens and especially laptops.

    An option could be to have this configurable by the user or the PI Administrator.

  9. 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.

  10. Add descriptions to error symbols on the configuration page

    On the PI Vision administration page → Configuration → PI Vision Database, the symbols beside "SQL Server" and "Database" do not have a description. Please add descriptions for these, either in plain sight or as a tooltip.

    Clicking on "Save" shows an error message, but that is for the save failing, not the errors that occurred when the user first visited the page.

    To get my screenshot, I specified the "SQL Server" and "Database" correctly but did not have permission to log into the PI Vision database.

  11. Add ability to auto-hide assets pane independently from events pane

    Kiosk mode hides both the assets pane and the events pane but it is possible that a user may want to view the events pane if the display is configured to view event frame information (but the user does not care about adding items from the asset pane)

  12. Identification / labeling of changed (manually edited) values within reports

    For pharmaceutical environment is would be an great option to indicate on displays (e.g. Coresight) whether or not an AF attribute’s value or a PI tag’s archive value has been manually edited. The way of indication dosn't really matter, could be a color, footnote, label, ...

  15. Custom symbol security AD aware?

    PI Vision's extensibility is a great feature to implement and extend Vision to more custom displays. Sometimes though, we don't want all users to be using some custom symbols. If there is a per symbol security for custom symbols in built instead of manual override in code will be great. Kenji has already done the majority of the work : https://pisquare.osisoft.com/community/developers-club/pi-visualization-development/blog/2016/07/21/how-to-customize-appearance-of-pi-coresight-2016#comment-9600.

  16. 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.

  17. A compose mode, as well as a published mode for the CoreSight UI environment

    The current CoreSight mix composition and use of dashboards. Consequently, features, such as the AF tree is only available for compose actions, whereas it could have doubled as display navigation feature, where there a published mode for the displays.

    Also, switching a display to other instances of the underlying AF template prompt for Save, as if the display was in compose mode.

    WordPress is a good analogy: It has a powerful compose mode, in which web pages can be edited in many ways. Published web pages can be browsed as usual with web browsers.

  18. Make popup trend show value and traits on the same scale

    If I double-click on a multistate symbol, I get an ad-hoc display showing the value and all it's thresholds. This is great except that the trend is multi-scale, which makes the threshold lines useless. If an ad-hoc trend is showing a values and its limits, they should all share the same scale (and possibly be differentiated by line-style or colour intensity instead of colour hue)

  19. Support Installation on Windows Nano Server

    Support installation on Windows Nano Server.  Nano Server is the latest OS that is optimized around private clouds and data centers. 

    It has a much smaller footprint from Windows Server Core and is "headless" which means that there is no GUI or local login capability.

  20. Color in multistate color pallette default choices matching the display background

    When building a element-relative display in ProcessBook, we often use a rectangular shape and set a mutli-state behavior to show or hide information on an element's attribute(s) based on whether it is excluded or not.  The color of the shape when something is excluded is the color of the display background - which is easy to manage.

    When doing same in Coresight 2016 R2 - the color of the display background is not available in the multistate color palette default choices.  While we now also have an option to create a custom color- the process is very hard to use…
