  1. 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.

  3. Changing Units of Measure (UOM)

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

  4. 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.

  5. Multistate: Change text color

    In multistate, we are able to change background color.
    We would like to be able to change text (letters, words) colors for text and value symbols with multistate.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Trend: Allow custom titles

    Allow specifying plot titles for trend symbols, similar to how ProcessBook allows specifying a plot name.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Collection: Sort by attribute value

    When creating a collection, would like to sort the collection by a specific attribute value (what is shown in the collection).  For example, a collection of tanks showing percent full.  Would like to be able to order the collection by percent full, to show the most full tanks at the top of the collection. This functionality should also be added to the Asset Comparison Table.

  14. 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).

  15. 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…

  16. Trend: Edit trace name in legend or be able to add a description

    Edit the trace name or add a description in the legend of a trend in order to:

    1) Make clear the description of the Attribute in the trend
    2) Use an abbreviation for the attribute description in the trend legend
    3) Use a different language in the legend while respecting the attribute name (for example, an attribute name is written in English in PI System Explorer but we would like to see Italian in the Coresight trend)

  17. 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.

  18. PI Vision font style: bold, italicize

    It would be great to have the option to bold or italicize certain words or all of the text.

  20. 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.
