  1. Multi-state color palette

    I would like to be able to select custom HTML colors for Multi-state elements. The current color grid seems like it's locked down to 16 pre-determined colors.

    A configurable radial gauge will be included in PI Coresight 2016 R2. The gauge allows the configuration of pointer style, gauge angle, scale, multi-state, and color configuration.

    Thank you for providing your feedback and helping us add the features you want to PI Coresight.

  3. Imported Processbook Display, Allow option for Scale-Range when open pop-up trend by clicking on Value Symbol

    Currently on imported PB display, when clicking on Value Symbol, a pop-up trend will use Auto-Range to set the scale of the trend. I would like to have an the option to use 'Database' setting.

    A number of configuration enhancements are included in PI Coresight 2016 R2. These enhancements include:
    - Set the min/max scale range for bar and radial gauges
    - Set the Y scale on a per data item basis on trends
    - Set the color, thickness, and line style for a trace line
    - Control the list order of data items in the legend
    - Set the foreground and background color for the trend

  5. Gauge scale visibility

    As a display author, I would like to configure the visibility (show/hide) of scales on horizontal and vertical gauge symbols.

  6. Hide trace

    Provide a user with the ability to hide a trace on trends. Basically the user can click on the trend legend (or a check box in the legend table - see other enhancement request) to show/hide the trace.

    This functionality exists within process book, so basically replicate the same functionality in Coresight.

    Traces can be hidden by right-clicking on the trace in the legend and choosing ‘Hide Trace’. This functionality was added in the 2016 version.

  7. Pop Up Trend from any symbol

    Support seeing a pop up trend from any data symbol on a display from a double click/tap on the symbol (or other UI mechanism like right click context menu).

  8. Change display sharing options for displays in a folder

    If a display is in a folder, the list of identities with which the display can be shared will include all identities. However, the customer do not want to see all the Identities, only want to find all identities that the current user is a member of.

    In PI Vision 2019, only users with write access to a folder will see the sharing option for that folder. The list of identities shown for sharing will be the identities that the user is a member of in addition to the identities that the folder has already been shared with.

    For additional information on PI Vision 2019 check out the release announcement here: https://customers.osisoft.com/s/knowledgearticle?knowledgeArticleUrl=kA01I0000007AdxSAE

  9. Align Symbols and Objects on a Display

    Be able to align multiple objects on a display for top, middle, bottom, left, middle, right. Similar to PowerPoint.

  10. Support 'Apply Time Range' and other event actions from the Events Table

    As a PI Vision user, I want to be able to right-click on an Event in the Events Table and select Apply Time Range to update the time range of the Editor display. Adding this functionality would be consistent with the Events Search pane, where this option already exists.

    The other events pane options should also be possible from events table:
    Compare Similar Events by Name
    Compare Similar Events by Type

  11. Gauge Symbols with configurable areas

    Dear developers,

    we are really missing the gauges as visualization element. It would be good to have them again in the next Version. Similar to the multistate Symbol it would be good to be able defining what is the Minimum and Maximum area.

    Best regards Kerstin Voss

  12. Table: Improvements

    Be able to put symbols inside of table rows.

    Highlight table rows on mouse-over.

    Drive other content on the page when a table row is selected. (connected symbols)

  13. Trend Scale Range:  Top / Bottom Based on AF Attribute or calculation

    Would like the ability to set the trend scale based on an AF Attribute since different products, equipment, lines etc might have different operating parameters.

    It would also be nice to be able to base the scale on a calculation, i.e. (AF_Attribute_UpperLimit + 5%)

    AF attributes can be used for scale limits in PI Vision. This can be done using the Minimum and Maximum limit attribute traits in AF.

    If these are set and the trend is configured to use database settings then these values will be used as the minimum and maximum scale values.

    For more information on attribute limit traits please see: https://livelibrary.osisoft.com/LiveLibrary/content/en/server-v11/GUID-0D32012F-7520-4555-8086-FBC6286FC50A

  14. Option to disable warning pop-up for trusted third-party sites

    Add the option to whitelist certain domains from triggering the third-party warning pop-up. This could also be handled per session by end-users ("Remember my choice") instead of adding domains to a whitelist.

    Current version of PI Vision has the dialog box hardcoded to trigger if a navigation link is not a link to another display.

    In PI Vision 2019, this behavior has been changed so that there is no longer a pop-up warning when navigating to an external site. Instead the mouse cursor will change to indicate when a symbol is configured with a navigation link and a tooltip will show the navigation link URL.

  15. PI Vision trend dynamic scales with attribute values

    PI Vision trend should have dynamic scales according with the attribute values (limits).

    COMPLETED  ·  Victor Zhang responded

    This feature is available in PI Vision 2016 or later. It can be accomplished by leveraging dynamic AF attribute traits, which was introduced in PI Server 2016.

  16. Trend: Shared dynamic scales

    For the Trend object I would like to select specific traces to share the same dynamic scale (range of plotted values) while other traces use independent scales. 

    Example:
    Depth - Independent scale
    Casing psi - share dynamic scale w/ Tubing psi
    Tubing psi - share dynamic scale w/ Casing psi
    Flow In Rate - share dynamic scale w/ Flow Out Rate
    Flow Out Rate - share dynamic scale w/ Flow In Rate
    Alarm Indicator - Independent scale

    This is achievable in PI Vision 2016 or later. When the ‘database’ option is selected for a trace’s scale range, if the attribute has Min and Max traits, the traits will automatically be used to define the scale of the trace. The traits can be dynamic. So if 2 traces are to share the same dynamic scale, simply reference their traits to one another. This feature requires PI (AF) Server 2016 or later.

  17. Value multistate in asset comparison table

    Add the ability to add multistate to asset comparison table. This should utilize the limits attributes defined in system explorer similar to radial gauges and bar symbols. It could be the back ground or the value that multistates. This would be a great method to provide a dashboard of a large number of process values and quickly identify which values are out of a desired range.

  18. MultiState symbol with limit traits should show both the trait name and attribute name if they differ.

    When user have renamed the limit trait attribute name (for example HiHi ->Critial Temperature) and uses the trait within a multistate symbol the trait name rather then the trait attribute name shows up for the mutlistate configuration, either both should show or allow for the user to chose which to see (or see by default). The limit trait attribute names does show within Coresight AF hierarchy, there should be an explicit relationship displayed associating the multistate intervals and the trait attribute names.

    This behavior has been changed so that the attribute name is now what is shown in the configuration pane and the corresponding limit trait name is now shown in the tooltip if you hover over the attribute name that is shown.

  19. Symbol: Text Label

    As a PI Coresight user I want to add labels (text) to my display so that it is easier to interpret the data being shown.

    Also, as a PI Coresight user I want a label symbol to support a URL so that when I select it I navigate to other web content, including the ability to open other PI Coresight displays with pre-defined URL parameters.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 97825.
