  3. Make XY-Plot available for collections

    Most symbols can be dynamically organized into collections, which is very handy for comparing assets of different sites, where the number of assets vary.
    The XY-Plot does not support this function at the moment.

  5. Smart Guides for Aligning Objects

    "Smart" guides would be really helpful for lining up symbols when editing or creating a display. For example, similar to what PowerPoint has when you move an object around on a slide. It tells you when you're aligned with another object on the display.

  7. Add "Sequence of Events" Symbol Type

    Add a table symbol which consists of the following 3 columns:

    Tag Name
    Tag Value
    Tag Timestamp (default sort on this column, ascending order)

    This table would consist of a set of tags over a specified time range.

    The purpose of this "Sequence of Events" table is for users to analyze the root cause and order of events that took place for a set of equipment. Typically your symbols in PI Vision and the way Datalink works is that each tag is separated into a separate column or row. The key feature here is to merge the tags into one…

  8. 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.

  10. Export event frame data to CSV from event details and comparison displays

    From the event details or event comparison displays in PI Vision, it would be useful to export event frame data (including attributes and values) to CSV/XML.

  12. 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.

  15. Compare data over different time ranges on the same trend

    As a process engineer, I need to be able to overlay traces on the same trend with data from different time ranges so that I can compare different point in time. This may be the same data item over different time ranges or multiple different data items over different time ranges.

  16. 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.

  19. Search for assets by attribute value

    User Story: Search for assets by attribute value: As a process engineer, I want to retrieve assets of a particular type by specifying an attribute value like Production SO THAT I can find the specific assets that I'm looking for.

    For example, find me all wells where Production < 1000.

  20. 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).
