  1. 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 planned 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Replicate the Pi Table functionality previously available in Pi WebParts

    The Pi Table Web Part provided the ability to easily create powerful displays that included Pi Data and relational in a single Element Relative display. For example, you could create a view of an asset's current status, and combine that with defects and work orders.

  4. PI Manual Logger: Option for Web App to default to Grid View

    In PI Manual Logger Web, there is a Grid Data Entry view, and a List Data Entry view.  The current default is the List view.  However, many users only use the Grid view.  It would be nice to have an option, such as a url parameter, that has a Tour Run default to the Grid view.

  5. Allow configuration of data update rate on a per display basis

    As a display creator or PI Vision administrator, I would like to be able to set the tag and/or Event Frame update rate on a display-by-display basis.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Replay Time / Playback Time

    Be able to go back in history and "replay" what happened while looking at a display.

    Also potentially integrate this with event frames, i.e. the ability to replay what happened leading up to an event, during event, and after an event.

  14. Show descriptions in tooltip

    In PI CoreSight 2014, when working with a raw Tag or attribute, one could hover over the tag and the description would appear in the tooltip. I loved that functionality. However, in the upgrade, this functionality is lost.

    Please reinstate it for the next patch or upgrade.

  15. Print a trend as a report

    Be able to print a trend and use it as a report. Include printing / saving to PDF. Consider changing colors on the trend to make it look nice when printed to a white paper.

  16. Sort Collection 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 sort collection by percent full, to show the most full tanks at the top of the collection.  The Asset Comparision table has this functionality.

  17. Edit Trace Name in Trend Legend or be able to add a description

    Edit the trace name or add a description in the legend of a Coresight 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)

  18. Event (EF) Plot / Batch SQC Plot

    Plot for Events (EFs) or Batches are on the x-axis and process value is on the Y axis.

    This might be another variant of a SQC Plot but based on batches/events (in time order) rather than strictly by time.

  19. Gauge: Support Zones / Scale Ranges

    Support zone configuration on gauges so that the user has an indication of whether the attribute is in a good or bad state.

    If an attribute has limits defined for it in PI AF (LO, LOLO, HI, HIHI), the gauge should default to the limits by default.

    It was brought our attention that this suggestion was not fully completed, so I am downgrading the status appropriately. PI Vision 2016 introduced multi-stating of gauge colors using attribute limits however zones/scale ranges have not yet been implemented.

  20. Statistics between cursors

    When adding multiple cursors to a trend, have a way to show the statistics (min/max/avg/duration) between the two cursors.
