  1. Identification / labeling of changed (manually edited) values within reports

    For pharmaceutical environment is would be an great option to indicate on displays (e.g. Coresight) whether or not an AF attribute’s value or a PI tag’s archive value has been manually edited. The way of indication dosn't really matter, could be a color, footnote, label, ...

  4. Custom symbol security AD aware?

    PI Vision's extensibility is a great feature to implement and extend Vision to more custom displays. Sometimes though, we don't want all users to be using some custom symbols. If there is a per symbol security for custom symbols in built instead of manual override in code will be great.

  5. Table: Row Grouping by Category

    Allow grouping of attributes in a table by their assigned AF Category similar to how attributes are grouped in System Explorer.  This would help organize the contents of a table other than by alphabetical order.

  6. A compose mode, as well as a published mode for the CoreSight UI environment

    The current CoreSight mix composition and use of dashboards. Consequently, features, such as the AF tree is only available for compose actions, whereas it could have doubled as display navigation feature, where there a published mode for the displays.

    Also, switching a display to other instances of the underlying AF template prompt for Save, as if the display was in compose mode.

    WordPress is a good analogy: It has a powerful compose mode, in which web pages can be edited in many ways. Published web pages can be browsed as usual with web browsers.

  7. Make popup trend show value and traits on the same scale

    If I double-click on a multistate symbol, I get an ad-hoc display showing the value and all it's thresholds. This is great except that the trend is multi-scale, which makes the threshold lines useless. If an ad-hoc trend is showing a values and its limits, they should all share the same scale (and possibly be differentiated by line-style or colour intensity instead of colour hue)

  8. Support Installation on Windows Nano Server

    Support installation on Windows Nano Server.  Nano Server is the latest OS that is optimized around private clouds and data centers. 

    It has a much smaller footprint from Windows Server Core and is "headless" which means that there is no GUI or local login capability.

  9. Color in multistate color pallette default choices matching the display background

    When building a element-relative display in ProcessBook, we often use a rectangular shape and set a mutli-state behavior to show or hide information on an element's attribute(s) based on whether it is excluded or not.  The color of the shape when something is excluded is the color of the display background - which is easy to manage.

    When doing same in Coresight 2016 R2 - the color of the display background is not available in the multistate color palette default choices.  While we now also have an option to create a custom color- the process is very hard to use…

  11. Multistate Line Styles

    Have the ability to change a line style from solid to dashed based on a multistate value. I have multistate lines that change color but changing the line style from solid to dashed would be a valuable feature.

  13. Fix time context of static attributes

    Fix time context on an element of a Coresight display. As an AF admin, I would like to create different versions of a static attribute element to keep its history, but I would like my Coresight users to see the most current version of the static attribute regardless of the time range.

    For example, if my asset name has changed on Jan 1, I would like to create a new version to reflect this changed. However on a Coresight display, I would like my users to see time-series data with the most current asset name, even if the time range…

  14. Image files over a certain size (3+ mb) will not load. Coresight should produce an appropriate error message if this limitation is expected

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Insert image file greater than 3mb. Example "FP05a" attached
    2. Produce attached screenshot, "no error msg"

    Desired outcome:
    1. Error message that reads, "Please insert an image up to [xx] in size.

  17. Allow scrollbars on Coresight Processbook displays

    When viewing large displays in Processbook the user can use scrollbars to navigate around the display whilst zoomed in so that the symbols remain legible.

    When these displays are imported into Coresight there are no scrollbars which make it very difficult to navigate the display.

    Scrollbar functionality should be implemented in Coresight processbook displays so that the same user experience is shared in both formats.

  18. "Rubber band" object expansion

    I would like the bar graph, trend graph, and table to have sort of a "rubber band" expand mode. As I expand the object, text labels expand in size proportionally as well as the main element.

  19. [!] speech bubble in the header should have a tooltip

    This is minor, but the [!] speech bubble in the header should have a tooltip when you hover over it. I wasn't sure what it was before I clicked on it.
