  2. Provide an option not to have URL parameters such as kiosk mode and hidetoolbar persist if you click a link to a display in another display.

    Provide an option not to have URL parameters such as kiosk mode and hidetoolbar persist if you click a link to a display in another display. It is not always desired to have the same viewing format between displays linked to one another. Also, the persistence of these parameters can cause different viewing behavior depending on how you click between displays.

  3. PI Vision Displays Management Process

    Hi,
    We have noticed as PI Vision gets adopted, organization of displays and content is becoming more and more cumbersome.
    It has become obvious that PI Vision is easy enough for any average person to design good quality displays that could be considered as part of the company's knowledge retention strategy.
    Therefore, similar to the concept of crowed sourcing, our vision is to "crowed design" in which James Dryden described it best in a reply Group Ownership Of A Display - PI Vision 2017 .
    I can envision a system in which users save personal copies of "published" shared displays…

  4. Collection template and instances

    It would be great to be able to define a "collection template" and use "instances" of that in different displays. If the Template is modified, all Instances are modified too.
    That feature is already done in AF with template and elements.
    The logical consequence would be to have that in PI Vision too.
    I use a certain collection many times by copying and pasting it and adjusting the collection criteria for each. If i need to modify the collections, i either need to do it for each manually or modifying one and copy paste them all over again. Both is…

  5. Value symbol component arrangement

    At present, if I want the label to be anywhere other than above the value, I must create it as a separate text item. I'd like it to be at leasst as good as in Procesbook where you could specify how the value, label and timestamp were arranged.

  6. Can we get more development on Processbook "Make Processbook great again"

    processbook looks like it is out of the late 90's and early 2000's.  Can we get some updates on this.  I know you are pushing PI Vision but some people don't want to use a web based software to do this with.  Because Processbook is so outdated in functionality and look my company has been looking at PARCview as a replacement.  This is because it is more intuitive and user friendly.  I do not want go through the process of changing to PARCview and would prefer a major update to Processbook.  Things like drag/drop from one display to another, modify…

    After 25 years, OSIsoft is retiring PI ProcessBook using a phased approach over several years. PI ProcessBook was the leading face of PI System for many years, paving the way for self-service visualization. Since then, technology and your expectations around mobility, scalability, and collaboration have evolved beyond what PI ProcessBook can deliver. OSIsoft has been actively developing and investing in PI Vision to provide you that next-generation, modern visualization experience.

    For additional information regarding the retirement of PI ProcessBook, please see https://customers.osisoft.com/s/knowledgearticle?knowledgeArticleUrl=000031882.

  7. URL Parameter Support for Events

    Include URL parameter support for events (event frames). For example, view the Event Details page of the event from a URL Parameter.

  8. Allow sharing access to data when sharing a display

    When a user shares a display, give the option to allow them to share the data contained in the display (PI tags/AF elements and attributes) with the AF identities that the display is shared with.

  9. Allow option to set screen size

    We're recreating DCS screens that have a specific size (11x17 when printed) but there's no way to match this in Vision (especially since we can't set a specific symbol size, such as with a scale of 1-40). It'd be great if there was a way to set the screen to always be x by x. This would also tie in well to creating style sheets: https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/320517-pi-vision-formerly-pi-coresight/suggestions/19017532-add-style-sheets-page-templates

  11. Provide Switch Asset Navigation Button for ProcessBook

    Support the Switch Asset Navigation Button for switching contexts on imported ProcessBook displays.

    I am aware of the url parameter workaround but would be very nice to also have the switch asset for interactive switching.

  12. Access/View Datalink Reports within PI Coresight

    We would like the ability to view PI DataLink reports in PI Coresight so that users have a one stop shop for finding their visualizations and reports. Additionally, the ability to leverage and control security around these.

  13. Display Navigation by AF Hierarchy

    Have an asset tree view to enable a user to browse / navigate the AF hierarchy tree, click on an element, and see the displays related to that element so that plant floor staff can easily navigate to their specific unit of interest by clicking an asset to open the relevant display.

  14. Set Permissions for Root folder "Home"

    As already implemented for subfolders, we would like to set permissions also on root folder "Home".

    Use Case: We would like to make sure that only creation of new displays in subfolders is possible and not in home folder.

  16. Support for Integrated Windows Security In PI Manual Logger PC

    Currently, only PIML Web syncs the user account to the active directory. All PIML applications (PC and mobile) should have the ability to have users login using Integrated Windows Security as opposed to what is setup initially from PIML PC.

  17. Table: Support Different Table Styles

    Similar to tables in Word / PowerPoint, support several different styling options for tables. Additionally, support the ability for a user to style a table exactly how they want it (with background fill colors, text colors, etc.).

  18. Provide a way to share display URLs via auto-generated email

    Provide a way to send an email from a display that includes a URL to that display.

  19. Allow Symbols to be Excluded from Asset Switching

    Excluding certain symbols from asset switching would allow displays to be authored with symbols that are "locked" -- meaning they will show the same data regardless of display asset context. This would allow displays to be used for drill-in navigation, while maintaining some top-level context data. It would also allow navigation buttons to be "locked" so that the button's target asset context will never be changed.

  20. Ability to edit some PI-AF properties from PI Coresight, i.e.: Light-weight PSE

    PSE is often used as a client-tool where it is not intended to be. It would be very beneficial to have a simple PSE tool just to view data. Browse Element Hierarchies and view Attributes, EventFrames.
    Just like PSE. The hierarchy could also make a small step towards a navigation hierarchy to navigate to Asset-relative displays.
