  1. Event (EF) Plot / Batch SQC Plot

    Plot for Events (EFs) or Batches are on the x-axis and process value is on the Y axis.

    This might be another variant of a SQC Plot but based on batches/events (in time order) rather than strictly by time.

  4. Trend: Ability to multistate trace pen color

    As a PI Vision user, I want to be able to configure a trend's trace color to be conditional based on the trace value. Each section of the trace should be colored appropriately based on its value at that time. See attached image for example.

  7. Additional options for the timebar time-range : "calender week", "calender month", "manual entry",...

    I would like to have more options in the PI-Vision timebar for the time range (see attached screenshot). The possibility of a manual time range entry would be greate. And additional options like "calendar week", "calendar month" and "calendar year" would be a great feature. So it would be possible e.g. to switch exactly from one calendar month to the next independent of how many days the months have.

  9. Layering functionality for PI Vision similar to that of ProcessBook

    PI Vision currently does not support any functionality for layers. It would nice to be able to create custom layers that could toggled on a single Vision display. ProcessBook currently has layering feature that is very useful for simplifying a complex display when not all of the information is necessary for every user.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. Asset Comparison Table: Label options for attribute columns

    The asset comparison table should allow control of what is shown as the column name. It would be helpful to be able to add custom friendly names to columns in asset comparison tables, or to use attribute description.

  14. PI Vision - "Internal Server Error"

    PI Vision "Internal Server Error" are not detailed enough to properly troubleshoot.
    As PI administrator, it would be great to have more granular and specific PI Vision "Internal Server Error" messages in order to get more insight as to what is going on.
    Our users have been experiencing intermittent "Internal Server Error", and we can not tell what the issue is either from the message log text neither when looking at the message logs level.
    If we have the ability to troubleshoot the root cause of the "Internal Server Error", we will be able to start looking at the problems…

  15. 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…

  16. Add ability to Collapse/Expand Attribute category sections in Asset Search Pane

    By default, the attributes shown for an asset in the Asset Search Pane, are all shown under their categories with no ability to collapse a given section. The can mean that the user has to scroll down a considerable amount in order to find the attributes they need (see screenshot 1). Screenshot 2 shows an example of how the "Real-Time Data" may be beneath under attribute sections, that while may be important at times, are not collapsible to make it quicker and easier to get to a section the user may access much more frequently. Of course, one can make…

  17. 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.

  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. Show ToolTip Statistics at PI Vision

    As a PI user, I would like to see the same ToolTip statistics as we are used to see at PI ProcessBook. It is automatic when any user sees a value and wants to check further information on an attribute with PI Point Data Reference.
