  1. Calculation Engine based on time range

    My feedback is to include a PE type calculations in Coresight similar to Datalink.
    The calculations should work with the time range selected.
    Options should be similar to Datalink avg, min, max, total, range etc...

    It would also be great to include basic arithmetic calculations to use against multiple PI Tag inputs and output the live calculation to a PI Value on screen.
    e.g PI Tag A + PI Tag B

  2. 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.

  3. View users connected to PI Vision

    PI Vision administrators should be able to see who is actively connected to PI Vision, similar to the way Network Manager Statistics in SMT shows all active connections to the PI Data Archive.

  6. Trend Cursor: show values while dragging

    As a process engineer, while dragging a trend cursor I'd like to see the process values. Currently, I can only see the value once I drop the cursor, I need to see the values WHILE dragging the cursor so that I can quickly identify problems in my process.

    This feature was available in previous version of Coresight (2014 and 2015) and in ProcessBook.

  8. Switch between elements in PI Vision mobile

    As a user of PI Vision mobile (iPhone), I need to be able to use existing element-relative displays on the mobile website and switch between assets so that I can dynamically see relevant data for multiple pieces of equipment

  9. Event Comparison Display - add trend configuration options

    Currently, Event Comparison trend has 0 configuration options.  I need to be able to: show markers, hide trendlines, set x and y scales, zoom in/out, expand trend to fill screen, set color schemes (running, completed, recently completed).  All things that BatchView BatchTrend in ProcessBook can do!  We can't move to Event Frame Comparison Trends in PI Vision until many of these items are added.

  10. Edit multiple objects at once

    It would be great to resize multiple objects at once - i.e. if I drag 10 values to the screen, it would be nice to edit the colors, sizes, and how they are displayed at one time. What I used to created in 1 minute in Coresight 2015 takes 10-15 minutes now.

  11. Better control of what is shown in Switch Asset

    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).

  13. Bulk Display Management

    Enhance the Display Management section of the administration page to support bulk and multi-select operations to reassign, delete, "make public" and "make private" displays for any display in the system.

    As a PI Coresight administrator, I want to be able to efficiently reassign, make private or delete my site's Coresight displays.

    Workaround: The Home page can be used to administer a single display at a time.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. Display hand when hovering over objects with Navigation Links

    When hovering with the mouse over a display object that has a Navigation Link attached to it, the mouse cursor should change to a hand when not in edit mode and it should navigate on single-click instead of having to double-click.

    Having the mouse cursor change to a hand to indicate when a symbol is configured with a navigation link is in development for the PI Vision 2019 release. To make this behavior more intuitive for users, single-clicking the symbol will trigger the navigation instead of double-click. Trends will be an exception to this, single-clicking a trend will continue to drop a cursor and double-click will be required for navigation links.

  18. PI Vision tooltip configuration

    The user would like to have control over the tooltip configuration of the PI Vision symbol. For instance, he would like to show the tag of a PI Point data reference when hovering over a single value from an attribute.

  19. Changing Units of Measure (UOM)

    The ProcessBook feature of changing the units would be great in CoreSight. Example: instead of Watts, it would be better to see MW.

  20. Symbols: Make visible/invisible based on tag value

    Change graphics based on a tag value. For example make a symbol visible when a tag/attribute value is equal to 1 and invisible when equal to 0 (or another condition).
