  1. 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.

    It was brought our attention that this suggestion was not fully completed, so I am downgrading the status appropriately. PI Vision 2016 introduced multi-stating of gauge colors using attribute limits however zones/scale ranges have not yet been implemented.

  2. 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.

  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.

  4. Zoom Out and Revert Trends

    Currently no easy way to zoom out of trends. Please add the refresh (revert) button and if possible + and - buttons available in ProcessBook trends

  5. 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.

  6. Nesting collections

    It would be good if collections were essentially full-blown mini-displays, where you could group/ungroup objects and also include a collection inside another collection.

  7. Have the ability to set Preferences / Default configuration options

    Like in PI ProcessBook you could use the Preferences section to set the default configuration options, you need a way to set it in PI Coresight.

    Maybe that could be part of the Administration page. There is a need to have the ability to set the default Trend symbol trace colors, default coloring of other symbols, default time bar time ranges (we should have the ability to define what choices we want to see as a company in the time bar selector), etc.

  8. Event (EF) Plot / Batch SQC Plot

    Plot for Events (EFs) or Batches are on the x-axis and process value is on the Y axis.

    This might be another variant of a SQC Plot but based on batches/events (in time order) rather than strictly by time.

  10. 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.

    PLANNED  ·  Alicia Coppock responded

    Options to select a data frequency when exporting data from a display is planned for a future release.

  11. 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…

  13. 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.

  15. Trending

    Trending Must Haves:

    I recently installed PI Vision here and I am getting feedback about the trending capabilities, or the lack there of. Please fix the following in the trends

    1. The ability to click on values on a page and create an Ad-Hoc Trend. This is another major need.

    2. Need to add descriptors to trends

    3. MUST BE ABLE to un-zoom in a trend and keep your current place in time. For example if I have a 24 hour trend and I scroll back 10 days and then zoom in, when I un-zoom I still want to be…

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

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

    Y axis value scale should be on the outside of the graph/trend plot area.  Axis values cannot be seen if they are covered by data.

  20. Freehand zoom in 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.
