  1. Lock the time range on a display

    It would be helpful in some use cases to be able to lock the time range on displays, so that clicking through the time bar or clicking or touching a trend does not adjust the time range.

    One particular use case this would be helpful for is when operators are using tablets to view displays while in the field. In these cases, it would be easy to accidentally swipe on a trend and change the time range for the display, which may lead to the operator reading old data by mistake and making adjustments to the process based on data…

  2. remove delete button

    Please make it much more work to delete a display from PI Vision. Currently, you have the Delete Display button right next to the Save button in the Display settings options. It is just to easy to click on the delete display and if not paying attention click on the acknowledge button. Please do something like what you do in Excel. There I have to enable the delete button.

  3. Simple crowdsourcing of custom symbols and complex displays

    Although developers can share custom code, there is no simple way to share a good custom symbol or even great display design across the global community, from the user, rather than the developer community.

    It would be great to have a drop folder that anyone can share some of the effort put into a great symbol or display in Pi Vision 4 . Then a simple voting system to rank them by stars or popularity by number of downloads could be tracked to create a sort order for the contributions. Contributions that make a threshold of user voting, or download…

  4. Lock Folder view in place in PI Vision

    Once you click on a display in the folder, the folder view goes away. What we would like to see, is that the folder view is kept on screen.

  5. Making the value bold when a trend is highlighted

    When several tags are trended on a trend symbol, it would be nice to have the value at the cursor corresponding to the highlighted tag writtem in a bigger font size and in Bold

  6. Having the remove tag option available again in table and trend symbols

    In Coresight, it was possible to easily remove a tag from a trend or a table just by clicking on the cross alongside the tag name.
    It was also possible to drag a tag from a trend or a table and drop it the create a new symbol.

    This feature has disappeared in PI Vision 2017 (need to go in the property panel to do that).

    Could you put it back again

  7. Having the Thumbnail representing the exact display content

    The thumbnails are not always representing correctly the real content of the display.
    It is a pitty because the représentation can also help to determine which display to use.
    The thumbnails are OK after importing the displays from Coresight.
    But are not updated if the display is modified afterwards

  8. Provide a mode for symbols to auto fit to the screen

    In PI coresight, adding a trend or an other symbol to the drawing area arranged it to fit the full drawing zone.
    It was very convenient to make ad-hoc analysis.
    The current design mode of PI Vision is good to design nice and welle positioned symbols.
    Would it be possible to get those two modes available

  9. Provide sample ISA 101.01 2015 style symbols with XY plot support (More modern symbols)

    Apologies that this overlaps a number of earlier submitted requests, but I realised you cannot attach a file to a comment, so created a new post.

    The symbols were updated for PI Vision 2017, but it is still difficult to create the dynamic symbols suggested by ANSI / ISA 101.01 205. For example, the XY plot requires a lot of work to create some of the suggested styles in ISA 101 2015. As the approaches of ISA 101 are based both on good practice, and will see broad adoption on new plant, using these approaches in PI Vision displays is…

  10. Collection Size

    Have the ability to define the number of items in the collection that will show with the ability to then page through additional collection items. Some collections can be large and we want to limit the amount of real estate on the display given to the collection.

  11. Allow to display the search results by table pages or in a combo box

    For some user, it is easier to use a list with a scroll bar instead of clicking to change pages

  12. Navigation Links Back Feature

    Hyperlinks should have an option to go back (to the last screen that navigated to this screen).

  13. Streamline Hyperlink Usage

    When accessing selecting a hyperlink from a chart, and the destination is another display (display X), selecting the hyperlink again should route you to the same page or tab, not open an additional tab of the exact same data.

  14. Changing Display Types Should Retain Any previous Formatting

    when changing displays from one type to another (trend to table, etc), and then back to original display type, any formatting changes should be retained.

  15. action of "now" button depending on previous period of time set

    I'm currently working with forecast data. In PI Vision, it's easy to display them using the start and end time from the screen below. But when I want to refresh my screen manually, if I click on "Now" button, it will put the current time to my "end time" and won't show me the forecasts anymore.
    Would modify the action of "Now"button in order it take into account the previous period of time set?
    regards

  17. Open Ad Hoc Trends with Single-Clicks

    It takes a double-click to open an ad hoc trend in native PI Vision displays, while only a single-click in uploaded PI ProcessBook displays. Single-clicks are more convenient to users on mobile devices.
