  1. Use PI AF substitution syntax for naming of elements on a display.

    With the new Collections feature in PI Vision it will be critical to keep the names of our elements to a few characters as it will pull the name from its element.
    It would be a great feature to allow the use of AF substitution logic so that I can use an Attribute within the element as a short name which will keep the visual in PI Vision tidy.

  2. Position of trend cursor should update other symbols in the display

    When scrolling a trend cursor, all other symbols in the screen (e.g. gauges) should display the value corresponding to the cursor's timestamp.
    This will enable better and simpler analysis of data directly in the screen.
    In the screenshot attached, one is trending "Engine's RPM" and one would like to see the gages update (Transmission, pedal position, etc) according to where in the trend the cursor is placed.

  3. Display attribute and tag description in Asset pane

    When holding the cursor over an attribute or a tag in the Asset pane, not only the AF hierarchy should be shown but also the description text as it is in PI Coresight 2014.

  4. 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).

  5. Show AD display names rather than User ID

    PI Vision shows who owns a display and who commented on Event Frames, but does so by showing the user's ID in format "Domain\UserID" which is not always readable. It would be better to display the AD user's display name in these places to make it clear who performed the action.

  6. 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.

  10. 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.

  14. Announcements on the PI Vision start page

    As a PI administrator I want to be able to make announcements to the users on the PI Vision start page from time to time.

    Examples of announcements is planned upgrade dates and times, information about new features, problems with data capture from interfaces, etc.

    A suitable place for these announcements could be the lower left corner of the start page.

  15. 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.

  18. Provide an option not to have URL parameters such as kiosk mode and hidetoolbar persist if you click a link to a display in another display.

    Provide an option not to have URL parameters such as kiosk mode and hidetoolbar persist if you click a link to a display in another display. It is not always desired to have the same viewing format between displays linked to one another. Also, the persistence of these parameters can cause different viewing behavior depending on how you click between displays.

  20. Busy Indicator

    It would be useful to have an indication that the data is still being loaded. Currently when you add an attribute to the display, change the time range of a display, execute a dynamic search, etc you don't get an indication that something is happening. Some of our operations are quite far away with limited bandwidth.
