  1. Display Utility options for duplicate displays

    I would like the PI Vision Display Utility to give me a warning and options if I try to move displays to a target database that has existing displays with the same names. This would avoid unintentionally creating duplicate displays with the same name.

    It might also be useful if the tool gave me options in this case such as:
    1) Acknowledge the warning and create the duplicate displays
    2) Rename the new displays before adding them to the target database so  that they are no longer duplicate names
    3) Overwrite the existing target database's displays with the new displays…

  7. Allow text formatting and to left center text on events table

    As now the text is aligned in center! It does not look good!
    It should be possible to choose this for individual fields in the events table.

  10. PI Vision Event frames should show child elements in the Attributes panel of the Events comparison page.

    When viewing event comparisons, the Attributes pane only lists the event frame attributes, the referenced element, and the referenced element's attributes. It currently cannot drill down and trend child element's attributes.

  11. golden batch designation for EF

    When pinning an event frame to create a golden batch set a property on the event frame so that the user can use other tools like DataLink to find golden batches that were defined in PI Vision.  Nedd to be able to also put some kind of identifier on a golden batch to tell it what it refers to since I can have many golden batches for different recipes.  One custmer I worked with recently had over 100 recipes.

  12. Navigation links on Events Table symbol

    As a user of the Events Table symbol, I would like to be able to add navigation links to the Events Table that would act like other symbols that support navigation links. Double-clicking or right-clicking on an event in the table would let you set the current display's asset (for other symbols on the same display) or open a different display with the selected event's asset. It would also make sense to set the display's time context to the event's time range.

  16. Have displays automatically inherit folder permissions

    As a PI Vision admin, I would like displays to automatically inherit the permissions of their parent folder so that permissions are set automatically when users save displays to the appropriate folder.

    Currently permissions for folders and displays are not tied together but they can be propagated manually using the 'Propagate permissions' checkbox in the Folder Settings dialog.

  17. Add PI Vision display option to show XY plot Regression line equation

    In PI Vision 2019, it is now possible to add a regression line to an XY plot (See: User Guide PI Vision 2019>XY Plot>Format data pairs for an XY plot) However there is no way to see the equation of this line.
    In PI ProcessBook it was possible to see the regression line's coefficients on hover.

  19. Event Comparison: Add ability to set time range / end time (X-axis)

    Sometimes there are very long event frames in the event comparison and it would be nice to be able to set the width of the x-axis to cut these event frames off at a certain duration. It's inconvenient to have to manually exclude them, and sometimes one still wants to look at long and short event frames in the same display.

    This can currently be achieved by dragging the trend plot area to the right so that the legend is no longer visible. Does that meet your needs to remove/disable the legend?
