  2. Login and Logout

    Why not give an option for login and log-off? It is weird that the application doesn't have these options available which is actually making developers to customize the product for their need which is cumbersome

  3. SAML Refresh Tokens

    We have learned that the PI Vision does not utilize the Azure AD refresh tokens or attempt to go out and obtain a token when paired with the Azure Application Proxy feature.

    We have been able to configure the Access Token Lifetime in Azure AD so that the Azure Application Proxy does not force a user to always refresh their browser every hour.

    Any chance the team can investigate if PI Vision will be more compatible with Azure's AD conditional access configuration when used with the Azure Application Proxy?

  4. Provide more Excel-like filtering and sorting options for PI Vision displays

    Working with data in PI Vision would be enhanced with more options to filter and sort data on the display. The filtering and sorting options common in MS Excel are an example.

  5. Allow end users to filter Collection symbols on standard PI Vision displays they do not own.

    Displays with collections may have standardized filtering applied and it would be useful to allow other users to modify the criteria.

  6. Trend of Event Frame Attributes in PI Vision

    We would like to make the trend of some attributes belonging to the event frames generated for a particular AF Element. For example, we consider the value of the conductivity at the end of the washing phase as an important parameter. We can easily register Event Frames for washing phases and each one with the value of the conductivity at the end, but we would like to put in a PI Vision trend such results for all event frames in a period (referred to the same Unit, i.e. AF Element). As a trend line I imagine an event frame search…

  7. Display Navigation Link Box

    It would be useful to have the option to create a scrollable menu within displays that can be used to add navigation links. Many users of PI Vision utilize Navigation Links, but these require an association with a distinct object in the display. In situations where many navigation links are desired, a wall of text boxes is not visually appealing and it would be helpful if these text boxes could be grouped together into a scrollable item in the display (similar to data collections that exceed the symbol area).

  8. Allow URI builder to function with implicit PI Vision server

    Our client uses two different PI Vision servers - a 'protected' internal server that is used within their network, which allows for manual entry, and another Read-Only instance which can be used from outside the network. Both access the same AF server.

    Our problem is that the URI builder can't handle the complexity of this system layout, and so users of both servers will be pushed by links to whichever server (in this case, internal) has been specified in AF.

    The current URI builder functionality is limited because it requires the designer to specify which Vision server it should link…

  9. trend

    I would like to have an automatic fast-forward function that allows us to see changes in data at double (or more) speed in a trend feature.
    With the current PIVision, we click the > triangle button at the bottom of the screen or manually drag in the trend area to see how the data has changed since the trend we are viewing in the past.
    Auto-fast-forward is a feature that makes it move automatically like a video, and at double speed (Example: 2x, 5x, 10 x speed).

    *By fast-forwarding the trend and looking at the data changing, I think we'll…

  10. Version # displayed on software download window - PI PB to PI Vision Migration Utility Install Kit 2020

    Customer recommends the version number be displayed on the software download window since it does call out version numbers for everything else being installed, but not for PI ProcessBook to Pi Vision Migration Utility Install Kit 2020.

  11. Show a dotted line indicating a common screen resolution when in edit mode

    Just like the dotted page break lines in Excel, it would be great to see some guides noting a common screen resolution to make it easy to create consistent screens across the site. Ideally this would toggle on and off and have one size for PC/tablet and another size for mobile (likely lower priority for many).

  14. New Hyperlink Modification - no asset context

    When a hyperlink is created, the "Set asset context" box should NOT be auto checked. When a new hyperlink is created and the user does not understand what this checkbox means, he or she has the potential to override other screens with whatever asset context is attached to the hyperlink.

  15. Have the ability to left align charts on the Y axis rather than than the object edge

    When putting scale labels outside the chart and left aligning the charts the axis does not line up if the labels are significantly different in significant digits.

    This is especially obvious in collections.

  17. Open Link in new Tab / Window

    Like on any other website, you should be able to right-click on a hyperlink and get the normal browser properties, like:
    - Open Link in new...
    - Copy Link

    This gives you flexibility in opening new tabs or windows that may not be the default function of the Navigation Link.

    Worse, the current right click options are 'modify' options, which, in my opinion is bad form - modify options should only be available in 'build' mode. The the point of having build and run mode (yeah, i know it's not called that anymore but i'm old).

  20. Be able to more seamlessly asset switch on both Parent and Child elements

    It would be helpful to be able to be able to "double asset switch" by controlling both the parent and child elements that you are viewing.

    For instance, let's say we have Line1 with Tank1 and Tank2 and Line2 with TankA and TankB. If I wanted to include information on the display related to both the Line and the Tank elements, it would be helpful to be able to better filter to specifically see the Tanks that are part of Line1 and Line2 (this can currently be done, but not very smoothly if the child elements are not named as…
