  1. Timebar: Add control for flexible time manipulation

    Similar to the timebar in Coresight 2.x, add the ability for a user to finely control time using a slider and increase or decrease the time duration using the slider.

  2. Table: Archived Values

    Provide a symbol in PI Coresight which displays the time and archive values of a data item based on the display's time range.

    Customer Issue: Customer uses PI Coresight 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 preferred for these…

  3. 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.

  5. Hover/Mouse Over ToolTip for Hyperlinks and Navigation Links

    As a PI Vision user, it would be helpful to have a ToolTip showing the hyperlink when a Navigation Link is added to an object or symbol. Right now, this only occurs with a Text symbol, but it would be helpful to have this for other symbols, such as a shape or image.

  6. Change the format of text in  a table symbol

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

    3 comments  ·  Manual Data Entry  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    In the upcoming release of PI Manual Logger Web 2017 R2 we are planning to add an option to default to grid view. This will be an application level setting that will set the default view for all users.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Heat Map

    A Heat Map is the universal method to show energy data over time and volume to provide a quick context to issues based on a pattern view.  This requirement is across all industries and mandatory in the facility market place.

  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. 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.

  19. 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.
