  1. Array Values in PI Vision

    It would be nice to have a possibility to Display AF Array Attribute Values within PI Vision. At the Moment we try to Display the results of a SQL table lookup with one or more results in PI Vision. Due to the dynamic amount of results, it is not possible to use one Attribut per result.

  2. Font

  3. Compare data over different time ranges on the same trend

    As a process engineer, I need to be able to overlay traces on the same trend with data from different time ranges so that I can compare different point in time. This may be the same data item over different time ranges or multiple different data items over different time ranges.

  4. Search Graphics Library

    Be able to search the graphics library by keywords rather than having to try to guess which of the many folders a certain graphic is in.

  5. Unit of Measure (UOM) setting per user

    As a PI Vision user I want to be able to switch the units of measure on my displays between Metric and Imperial so I can see data in units I expect. Adding support for AF UOM groups would allow the user to make this choice.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Allow auditing of PI Vision display changes

    As a PI Vision administrator, it would be useful to be able to track and audit changes (creation, edits, deletion) to PI Vision displays.

  11. PI Manual Logger Web should honor the Conditional Manual Data Entry (CMDE) settings in the tour definitions

    CMDE provides a cleaner method of skipping tags, as it does not rely on the user to manually skip data entry for the correct tags during each tour.

  12. Event Comparison: Freehand zoom on event frame overlay

    It is currently possible to zoom in on event frame comparison using child event frames, but you cannot zoom in into an arbitrary location on a trend by dragging the mouse cursor.

  13. Trend: Add Dynamic Search Criteria

    Allow dynamic search criteria to be added to a trend so that it can dynamically display data from assets based on the specified search criteria (attribute values, attribute name, attribute category, etc).

  14. Export event frame data to CSV from event details and comparison displays

    From the event details or event comparison displays in PI Vision, it would be useful to export event frame data (including attributes and values) to CSV/XML.

  15. Easily choose between AF attribute name and actual PI tag name

    When creating a display using attributes (i.e. - Agitator Speed), I would like to be able to easily toggle between the name and the actual tag ID. I have access to PI System Explorer, so I can go and find it, but my end users do not and in some instances would like to display the actual tag and not the attribute name.

  16. Have dynamic links that are AF attributes redirect the current display instead of opening new tab

    Currently, a "dynamic" links on PI Vision displays are Asset Framework attributes using StringBuilder that are displayed using a value symbol. When the symbol is clicked, a new tab is opened.

    Having the display redirect in the same tab would be more ideal.

  17. Add description to search results

    Show description information in the search results when searching for PI tags and AF attributes.

    Just showing the Tag Name is not helpful on sites with large volumes of complexly named tags. Descriptions are shown in a tooltip when hovering over search results however description information needs to be more prominent.

  18. TABLE: Allow Asset Comparison table to be transposed

    In the paper industry, there are fewer assets at a site, but those assets tend to have many attributes (e.g., there may only be 3 paper machines, but each has 100 attributes of interest). It would be helpful if the Asset Comparison table in PI Vision could be transposed so that asset names were Column headings and attribute names were rows.
    For example, instead  of a table with 5 rows and 100 columns (that can't be seen all at once on one display page), it would be better to have four columns of assets names with 100 rows of values,…

  19. 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.

  20. Hide data when attributes don't exist for dissimilar assets

    Assets and machines are never quite the same. Be able to swap the asset/element context (may be different template) and if the selected asset doesn't have certain data available on the display or if it is marked as excluded, don't show it on the display rather than an error message.

    This should apply to collections in addition to individual symbols.
