  1. Trend: Axis value scale on the outside of graph

    Y axis value scale should be on the outside of the graph/trend plot area and when this is done, show minor ticks when multiple scales are used. Axis values cannot be seen if they are covered by data.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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. 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.

  11. 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.

  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. Export Data Supports Data Frequency

    As a process engineer, I would like to be able to control the data frequency (minute, hour, etc.) of how much data is exported for my time range rather than a fixed number of data points SO THAT the data that I export can actually be used for some analysis rather than data that is too sparse to be used.

  15. 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.

  16. XY Plot: Asset / Event Comparison

    Be able to compare multiple assets against each other using an XY plot.

    User Story: As a process engineer, Lalit wants to compare data from multiple assets against each other on the same XY Plot SO THAT he can compare the performance of each asset’s production.

    Each asset’s data is shown in a different color.
    The production start time for each asset is captured by an event (EF).

  17. 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.

  18. Increase the update rate of data in PI Vision displays

    As a PI Vision user I would like to be able to increase the update rate of PI Vision displays to less than 5 seconds and even sub-seconds so I can use it for trending.

  20. Event Frame in time line form

    To have a new symbol, which has the similar function as Event Table. Instead of table symbol, hopefully we can have bar chart kind of symbol instead, as shown in the attached pic. It will much cleaner that way and let user have a better view of the events happened for the past shift.
