  1. Events table: search for event frames by asset root path (including all descendants)

    It would be useful to be able to configure the events table symbol in PI Vision to search for all event frames that reference elements below a certain root. This would allow you to see all EFs related to a certain branch of your AF hierarchy very quickly.

  2. Open attached files directly from PI-Vision

    It is great that I can attach files as an attribute to an element in AF and that these files are shown in the PI-Vision navigation (see attached screenshot). But why is it not possible to open these files directly from PI-Vision? This would be a great improvment.

  3. 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.

  8. Tool to list all PI Tags and AF Attributes mapped to any display

    Right now I get errors in Event Viewer on my Vision server saying "Server is not available".  The server it mentions is our Dev server, which means somehow a tag or attribute got to Prod without being converted.  But the error doesn't tell me the tag or the display.  So I have no way of troubleshooting this without individually checking each and every display or spending all my time digging through the SQL to figure out where all the config information is hidden.

    The other use case is: if as a PI admin I want to change the name of…

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  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.

  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.

  20. 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.
