  1. Edit multiple objects at once

    It would be nice to edit the colors, sizes, and how they are displayed in bulk all at one time. What I used to created in 1 minute in Coresight 2015 takes 10-15 minutes now.

  2. Direct Visualization of AF Tables in PI Vision

    PI Vision should be able to directly pull entire  table objects (such as linked tables) from Asset Framework into a display, rather than forming a table of attributes with Table Lookup data reference.

  4. Table: Archived Values

    Provide a symbol in PI Vision which displays the timestamp and archive values of a data item in a table based on the display's time range.

    Customer Issue: Customer uses PI Vision to monitor the most recent 100 seconds of data on their production line, which updates every 10 seconds. The process engineers want to be able to see the previous 10 measurements collected. The values on the display need to be clearly visible from a distance and able to display the desired information without interaction. This can currently be done with ProcessBook or DataLink, but a thin client is…

  6. Tree View for Display Asset Context Switching

    As a PI Vision user, I want to use an AF hierarchy Tree View to switch the asset context of my display so that I can navigate to the asset I'm looking for.

  7. Better control of what is shown in Switch Asset List

    When designing displays I would like to control how much of an element's path is shown in the Switch Asset dropdown. I've found myself in the situation described by this thread too many times: https://pisquare.osisoft.com/thread/34664-asset-framework-naming-for-pi-vision

    I would like to be able to control how much of the path is displayed in the name of each asset, for example like the "Data item length" slider available in the PI DataLink search dialog.

    In the PISquare thread above the asset (RTU) can only be identified by including part of the path (Station1\RTU).

  9. Display Slideshow

    Functionality so choose multiple Coresight displays and have Coresight automatically show the displays rotating from one to another in a slide show type fashion.

    This is typically for showing displays in 'public areas' such as a big screen in the company cafeteria.

  11. Have the ability to set Preferences / Default configuration options

    Like in PI ProcessBook you could use the Preferences section to set the default configuration options, you need a way to set it in PI Coresight.

    Maybe that could be part of the Administration page. There is a need to have the ability to set the default Trend symbol trace colors, default coloring of other symbols, default time bar time ranges (we should have the ability to define what choices we want to see as a company in the time bar selector), etc.

  12. Event Comparison Display: Allow scale configuration

    There is no ability to configure the Y-axis scales on the event comparison displays (database, autorange, custom). If there is an outlier value it can make the chart too compressed to see useful data.

  13. Heat Map

    A Heat Map is the universal method to show energy data over time and volume to provide a quick context to issues based on a pattern view.  This requirement is across all industries and mandatory in the facility market place.

  14. Trend: Statistics between cursors

    When adding multiple cursors to a trend, have a way to show the statistics (delta/min/max/avg/duration) between the two cursors so that a user can easily understand what happens during the cursor times.

  15. Multistate behavior in table object

    Hi!
    It would be great if the table object would be configured to handle multistate.
    Each attribute in the table should be possible to configure to multistate.

    Even better if it some how could be configured from AF, so that you would have a template in AF that are associated with a version of the table object.
    In that case when you pick a attribute thats associated with a template then everything is configured to the corresponding table object.

  16. Timebar: Add control for flexible time manipulation

    Similar to the timebar in Coresight 2.x, add the ability for a user to finely control time using a slider and increase or decrease the time duration using the slider.

  18. Event Details: Allow scale configuration

    We are using EventFrames to catch Alarm states. Therefore we compare measurements to Limits we created in AF. Unfortunately in the PI Coresight EventFrames Display the trend always configures its y-axis automatically. So all the Limits are on the same line and you can not easily see which Limit raised the alarm or how the measurement value changed between the limits during the EventFrame. It would be nice if the y-axis would be scalable manually (single scale, multi-scale, etc).

  20. Nesting collections

    It would be good if collections were essentially full-blown mini-displays, where you could group/ungroup objects and also include a collection inside another collection.
